3.83/5 rDev +0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
A: The beer is clear reddish amber in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high light beige colored head that gradually died down and left a thin layer of bubbles covering the surface, a collar around the edge of the glass, and some lacing down the sides.
S: There are aromas of citrusy hops in the nose—grapefruit seems to stand out in particular—along with notes of caramel malts.
T: The overall taste is rather malty and has flavors of caramel and toasted malts along with notes of citrusy hops. There are some hints of spices in the finish. In addition to the citrus flavors, the hops also contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels a little more than medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer isn't your typical winter warmer because it packs in a lot of hops, but it has some nice notes of citrus. I could see this as beer that a hophead might want to try during the colder months. It's quite drinkable because the hops cut through the malts and no alcohol is detectable in the taste.

4.24/5 rDev +11.6%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
A: Darkish ruby amber, almost clear with a dissipated off white head.
S: Initially onions but it soon gives way to floral hops, English in character.
T: In the mouth the hops tastes more American with that classic orange peel profile but overall it drinks like an English bitter. Nice and sharp with an astute malt backbone which leaves a nice aftertaste, again reminiscent of English bitter. Too sharp for a session beer but on cask would be a different story.
M: Sharp and prickly. It's got heartburn written all over it.
O: Very nice. I'd love to try it on cask.
