3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of caramel, herbal notes, and faint grass. It pours a transparent copper with a small off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light -moderate caramel with a touch of fruit. The finish has some herbal notes, grassy hops, and a touch of spice. It’s light-medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, $1.90 from Wine Warehouse, Charlottesville. Pours a refreshing golden amber with a small head. Smells of lightly sweet hops, some malts, and light fruits. Flavor is lightly flowery hops, some roasted malts, and finishes with a bitter ting. A bit soapy. Not bad, but not one of my favorites.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bière cuivrée, limpide, avec un nez de houblons et de sucre. En bouche, c’est herbacé et mince... une touche sucrée vient rajuster le tir sans sauver la mise. La Burton IPA est intéressante, mais on est loin de réinventer le genre ou même de lui imposer un défi...

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An oddly mild IPA, lacking that long bitter finish. Its nose is mild with unusual aromas for an IPA. The flavor is at least pretty standard, but nothing much to write home about.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Nose is quite hop forward with some nice little grassy notes in this one. Taste is somewhat bitter up front, buthas just a hint of sweetness on the back end. Decently drinkable, but not overly complex.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clean and soft light copper amber with one finger of off white head. Nose is herbal and earthy with a light caramel sweetness and touch of dactyl/butterscotch. Very nice flavor, big floral notes upfront with a nice crisp bitterness. Leafy and citrusy notes on the back of the mouth with some bite on the finish. Light bodied and dry. I really enjoyed this one.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Amber body with a frothy, off-white head. Raw grain and leafy hop aroma along with notes of biscuit, flowers, caramel, toasted grain. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Subtle hops are balanced with caramel tasting malts, but the malt bill comes off husky and unclean.
