1.3 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Got this in a multipack, nothing here but sweet. Did they forget to add hops? I may have to blend the other two bottles with something biting just to get through them.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz. bottle. Bronze / copper color with small fast disappearing head. Aroma of grain and a wisp of pine. Flavor is sweet grain, butter and a dead hop that wants to be pine. It really, really wants to be pine. Thin watery body with a diacetyl finish. Well thankfully I had this at a buddy’s house, so I didn’t pay for it. Below average.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pretty orangish rusty color, unfiltered. Off white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Not much lacing. Smell is caramel, citrus and mild hops. Taste is nice, caramel notes with pineapple and a mildly bitter hop profile. Aftertaste slightly bitter and citrusy. To me this is quite a bit better than the majority of the ratings I've read.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Pours a very clear copper color with small white head. Faint aroma of sweet caramel malt and a light citrus hops aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, slightly grainy with a light grapefruit hop touch. Lighter body with moderate prickly carbonation.

1.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
A - Pours a clear amber with a big bubbled small head. No lacing.
S - Citrus with a kind of rotten buttery diacetyl. Some toffee malt underneath
T - Bitter orange with butter diacetyl. Some strawberry and cherry fruit. Herbal mint comes through towards the and and finishes with sweaty socks and grain like aftertaste.
M - Medium carbonation, slightly prickly.
Well this might of had potential to be a nice APA, but unfortunately the diacetyl is heavy handed and takes over most of the flavors. Pretty bad.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from beer of the month club. Pours ruby with small head. Aroma is interesting. Strong citrus and floral hops mixed with buttery caramel malt. Very buttery smell. Flavor follows the smell closely. Very floral hop flavor here, similar profile to Celebration, but with a buttery caramel addition. Strange finish of malt though. Lightish mouthfeel with adequate prickle from the carbonation. Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 I’m happily out of step with the crowd on this one, I think this is a very solid beer. Cloudy burnt orange color, pungent hop aroma and nice bitter/sour taste without being overpowering.
