Clear dark orange with a n off-white head.
Subtle hop aroma.
The flavor goes to the bitter side with a dry finish.

My best guess at which project I had. A nice IPA, hoppy at the nose and throughout. Some floral notes in the aroma, citrus, and lemon. Not much spice. Balanced body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Well, I just bought this, I guess I’m a couple months late for peak freshness. It pours clear amber with a thin beige head. Aroma of lemon and floral hops, toffee. Taste is malt forward, doesn’t have any off flavors but I am guessing it was a little more pungent a while ago. This doesn’t seem like it was ever very bitter, more floral.

Deep amber pour with a light frothy off white head and lace. Nose dominated by perfumy hops and peppery aroma. Sweet caramel malt, a hinto orange, a big bizzro bitter that I can’t explain. Medium body abit fizzy. Good but unusual.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz; date stamp is "58.SEP 15.11". Deep copper with a lasting quarter inch of meringue. Nose is caramel malt and earth-spicy, vegetal tones. Flavor is not-too-sweet hard lemon candy, with some bitter root and soured, earthy leaf. Finish is wooden: bittersweet toasted pecan with the pith. Light-medium body is softly carbonated and well-balanced. Decent, but seems to be searching for some definition.
