3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle-purchased at the brewery-Aug 2012-pours hazy copper hue with a small soapy eggshell head. nose is big carmel malts, pine hops, woody notes, lite green apples, err, wait alot of green apples. flavors exhibit the green apples and carmel malts with an undertone of piney hops. wow, this is very over-rated. I cant get past the green apple notes here!!! Its too bad-this is a very well made beer however, something went wrong on fermentation. That green apple is over the top!!!!!! ugh....so sad. If this didnt have that infection, it would have been very high 3 rating. I can tell it has a nice malt and hop combo, a more malty, almost ESB-ish type of APA here. infection gets the best of it though....
Especiada y herbácea, galleta, resinas, si acético, pino. Maltosa y amargor resinoso. escualope (28) - MADRID, SPAIN - APR 22, 2017
Orange jam, cinnamon, caramel, cedar and balsamic notes on the nose (mint, eucalyptus?). Medium bodied, smooth carbonation, tasty and well balanced. Not suitable for the IPA milkshake lovers. Probably I’m a bit played out but I loved it. kaserov (746) - Oviedo, SPAIN - APR 20, 2017
Color cobrizo, casi ámbar, turbio, con capa de espuma de un blanco amarillento de tres dedos de grosor (buena retención). Aroma a cítricos y malta (mucho cereal). Sabor a cereal, maltoso, con algo de cítrico (naranja, sobre todo) y final de amargor mínimo pero bien cuadrado. Más que APA parece una Pale Ale corriente y moliente e incluso me recordó en cierto modo a una Lager por ese cereal tan remarcado. Me hubiera gustado que tuviera más presencia de lúpulo o resina tanto en aroma como en sabor, pero imagino que será que está a poco menos de tres meses de caducar. Rica, de todas formas. fiulijn (20493) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 20, 2017
Tasting at Matt’s, release #79, 6.7%fiery_1 (1008) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
Hazy copper to amber color.Biscuity caramel tones, mild residual sweetness, resiny and piney hopping, with orange pel, and some astringency in the final.
Somewhere between APA and old style IPA, quite good.
650ml bottle @ Matt’s. Release #79. Pours a cloudy brown colour with a thin off-white head. Nose is light with mildly hopped note and some malty aspects. Flavour is earthy, hops bitterness that is kept in check by some sweet malts.

Hazy light amber. No head. This isn’t bad - toasty, light orangey hop notes. A nice balanced amber, orangey hops come through. It’s basic, but well-made. mcberko (17830) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 16, 2017
22 oz. bottle, pours an opaque dark amber orange brown with a medium beige head. Aroma brings out resinous hops, toasted caramel and some old, stale bread. Flavour is along the same lines, with toasted caramel, resinous hops, and again the stale bready notes. Probably not fresh, but still pleasant with the hop resins and caramel. Wish this were fresher, so I’ll be generous with my rating. Decent. Christpuncher (3135) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 19, 2017
Batch #95 since rate beer is fucking anal about variants. Free yourselves
Aroma is honey and earthy flavor is sweet, honey, and some balanced out hopps. Pours cloudy copper with a tan head. Best yet of the random case I bought in Utah

A pretty great beer. Big juicy aromas and flavours. Melon, citrus, resin. Copper colour and big foamy head. Very nice beer.
