3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Caramel, grass pours orange with a thin light tan head. Leaves some lace on the glass. Starts with a toasty caramel and leaves a bitter aftertaste that lingers, but not too long.

Bottelled on 26 Oct 12. Found on the website blog. Great amber color with a huge thick head. Taste was hoppy, but subtle. Lots of floaties in there. Nice malt to it. Great beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A copper color with a white head. Aroma contains some citrus and caramel. Flavor is more sour than bitter. Sucking on a lemon peel with some caramel notes in the back. Lots of herbal notes present. This is like a belgian IPA straight up. Overall interesting.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Pours a bright orange with a thin white film of chunky bubbles. Light lacing on the glass. Aroma is sticky, spicy hops. There is also a touch of light honey. Flavor is very full - spicy, bitter, and deep malt sweetness. A touch of toffee or caramel. The hops bring plenty of resin, spruce, and bitterness. Not exactly my favorite style of IPA, but certainly a worthy example.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz, bottled Nov 11, 2012. Clear, burnt orange with a lasting disc of cream on top. Big nose of fresh grapefruit, with earth-spicy orange toffee around the edges and a touch of cat-spray. Taste is dirty caramel, toasted sweet cereal, soapy citrus and an overpoweringly bitter finish of pine resin, pith and citrus zest. Near-medium body is pretty smooth, but way out of balance with the bitterness.
