4.06/5  rDev +9.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Hazy Orange. Very fluffy head. Nice lacing and streaming carbonation

Smell: Faded citrus matched with some pete. Some acidic hops. Docile but approachable and satisfying. Wish it was a bit more pronounced.

Taste: Orange peel and hops again. More scotch notes, especially in the aftertaste. Very approachable yet again. A standard of NG.

Mouthfeel: A little bit thin but nothing crazy. Enjoyable and decent carbonation.

Overall: A solid beer. Good notes, complexity, and flavor. I wish some of these beers they would turn the flavor up to 11 instead of 6-7 but thats their trademark. Nothing over the top and enjoying the moderation of a good, balanced beer.

3.55/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Bottle poured into a snifter. Grabbed this from Woodman's/Kenosha today, and it seems to be a recent release. Pours a medium-dark orange color, with a conservative amount of cream colored head. It smells like apple juice: sweet, with a bit of booze. Down the hatch, it is definitely a malt bomb, on the sweeter side for the style. Mouthfeel is on the slighly lighter side of medium. Nice version of a style that is not my favorite.

Slightly fruity followed by toasted malt and caramel flavors. I didn't find the high alcohol content to be as noticeable as some of the other reviewers reported.
