3.7/5 rDev +5.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Appears a semi-transparent copper toned amber with a small, off white head that slowly fades into a gentle cap and thick collar. Rings of streaky lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of citrus, pine tar, biscuity malts, orange rind, and light herbs.
Taste is of the aromas with a decent blend of sweet malt being the backbone, followed by a modest amount of hops(though Amarillo is admittedly not a fav of mine), and honeycomb sweetness.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, semi-sweet up front, leading to a balance of herbal hops on the back of the tongue.
Not bad for a local beer.

3.56/5 rDev +1.4%

A: Coppery orange pour produces a monstrous 3 inch beige head that had a shrooming cap. Incredible head retention is lengthy in stay with a moderate rise of carbonation along the glass edge. There seems to be sprinkled cinnamon both on top and mixed in to the head. Covering is fully lasting while there is a generous amount of chunky lace adhering to the vessel walls.
S: Aroma of fresh wet citrus and honey. Surprising amount of fresh aromatic hoppiness with some sugar coated grapefruit and saffron.
T: Loads of freshly squeezed citrus and lemon lime. Saffron, sweet upfront, wet and juicy citrusy hoppiness that is dripping wet turning to a bittering of pine and citronella. Some dry lemon with some peppery herbaceous hints. Pine-scotch alcohol from the 6.7% abv with some complimentary alcohol notes of cinnamon, nutmeg and woodsy additions.
M: Honey malt depth to the mouthful, decent rate of carbonation with a good deal of bittering on the tongue.
O: Overall had an aroma that was fresh and wet with a good bite of honey and hop bitterness mixed together. Nice aromatic appeal, flavor was decent, good honey balance without being overdone and delivered on the bitterness factor. would go single here at first.
