3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep reddish brown color; nice looking tan head just after the pour and long lacing down the glass, though the head doesn’t persist long. Deep malty aroma, a bit bready and light notes of caramel and maybe roast; floral hops. Flavor is a little lacking in depth; lightly malty but just a tad too heavy on the hops. Medium body; not quite silky carbonation but smooth; lightly sticky on the lips. Good beer overall; doesn’t clearly show the 7% abv; bit heavy on the hops.

3.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very light aroma with a floral hoppy palette. Not bad at all but not the best winter ale I’ve had. Good for warming the cockles on those cold damp evenings, well worth a gargle if you haven’t tried it already.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Fargen er superklar rødbrun, og skummet moderat. Aroma av karamell og tørket frukt, litt friskt gress. Smaken er under middels fyldig, med mye røde bær og karamell, noe grapefrukt. Ganske tørr avslutning.

Six pack from Harris Teeter in Huntersville, NC. Bottles. Starts with an aroma of hops and some malt. Deep amber in color with tan head. Nice mixture of citrus hops up front followed by some slightly sweet malt, spices, banana and a hint of caramel. Finishes slightly bitter but clean. Fantastic

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance has a light brown amber with a thin head, but good lace. Smell of bold hops, pine and citrus. Taste has a good upfront piney hoppiness, grapefruit, spice and malt. Mouthfeel is smooth and slick going down with just the right amount of carbonation. though the ABV is not evident in taste, it is a bold drinker, one that the palate warms up to.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear brown body with a thin beige head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, citrus, and pine. The palate is relatively light, and the beer is smooth. Sweet entry of brown sugar and malt fades to a nice bitter finish with a touch if pine and grapefruit. Nice brew.

Tap @ Hop Devil with E. Dark glassy red-brown, think beige head. Aroma hard to detect (thanks, shaker!) But I get some malt action and light chalky spice. Palate is sweet upfront and a little hop bitterness comes through on the way down. Kind of nondescript though, and perpetuates my intrinsic dislike of beers with "warmer" in the name. I don’t feel warmer or happier. But not bad at all.
