Bottle from Harris Teeter @ Barracks Road. Pours amber with a small off-white head. Aroma is light apple, light caramel, honey. Flavor is heavily relying on the sweet honey, grains, caramel, a little woody, toffee - actually, perhaps an icecream-ish flavor. It’s actually pretty tasty.

Pours very clear amber, thin off white head. Aroma is floral, roses, honeysuckle, lightly juicy. Taste is more earthy bitterness and caramel malt. Mouthfeel seems heavy for the style, creamy, carbonated. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle from Total Wine & More, McLean. Bold amber body with big, puffy head. Nose is hoppy, citrus, grainy, skunky. Taste is also of hops, caramel, some fruits and a sweet, resinous finish. Radek Kliber (7501) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - SEP 16, 2016

Aroma nice classic aroma. Leafy greens, slightly woody with caramel malts. Nice Fuggle hop feel on top. 7+
Top: mid sized with neat lace on glass.
Palate : dry, medium lighter bodied, average plus length. It has slight astringency to it.
Taste: the good: nice hop accents, pleasant base . The bad: tad too thin malt work, astringent, metallic elements
Other notes still decent try
Sampled at the brewery, pours a clear copper with some thin head. Nose is OK, some caramel/toffee, dried lemon peel, soap, mild yeast. Flavor is a bit watery, some lemon tea, some soggy bread, a little yeast. Watery finish. Unimpressed.

Bottle from the neighbor - thanks Chris! Amber w minimal head and low carbonation. More malt on the nose than expected. Good malt profile w milder hop and better balance compared to typical American IPA which is good. Decent beer.

12 oz bottle from Kroger The ale poured a clear amber color with a small head that dissipated steadily. Some lacing for this very attractive ale in a glass. The malts are detected more in the aroma like sweet caramel. The medium body ale has modest hop bitterness in the roof of the mouth. The soft carbonation worked well with the clean bitterness. The finish was clean with some hop bitterness in the last swallow. bigbish (715) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2016
This is a really great, easy to drink beer. Very well balanced between malt and a touch of hops. Very smooth session beer. Love it. Iphonephan (7474) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 24, 2015
