3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden copper color with good head retention and hanging swirls of lace. The taste is what you’d expect: Sweet caramel malt opens assertively, but can’t keep the pine and floral hops from taking over midway through the palate. Remarkably, as strong as the hops are, the sweet continues to linger in the background. Excellent with food; on one hand, standard US IPA, on the other quite well conceived and balanced. Recommended.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the 12. fl. oz. bottle. It is a nice looking amber-copper color along with some golden hues on the edge of the glass, decent clarity, and a full off-white head. Floral and earthy notes on the nose with a muted pale malt nip and a bit of sweetness. Light to medium body and maybe a tad creamy. There is a vague sweetness in the taste but there are also plenty of earthy hops playing around in the flavor too. Slightly lingering finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Creamy and fruity hops aroma with tropical fruit and a bit of pine. Clear light bronze under a dense, off-white foam. Dry and moderately bitter taste that is biscuity and with plenty of bitter grapefruit peel hops. Also some apricot/peach notes. Light body, medium to high carbonation plays off the dry feel to make this very hoppy beer pretty refreshing, lingering grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Albany, best before 2/23/13. Pours golden amber capped by a slight cream colored head that quickly reduces to a light lacing cap. Addition amounts of lacing coat my glass. Nose of cracker, flowers, and resin. A solid malt body holds together the bitterness well. Hop flavor is a bit muddled and takes a back seat to the overall malt and bitterness. Body is medium but feels a bit thin at times.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 9, 2012 Tap pours golden yellow with white foam. The aroma is light floral fruity hops and golden malts. The flavor is grainy pale malt, maybe a touch of pilsner with a bold golden bittering resinous dried flower and light orange citrus hopped kick. Not a lot of depth but a decent brew.
