2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yeah, this one is kinda mild. Light flavoring, with very little hops to give it bite. Aroma is mild citrus, and more alcohol than you’d think given the %. Finish is malty, though not in a balanced way. Mouthfeel is weighty, though not overly so. Nothing special, but nothing terrible either.

Light hoppy aroma. Flavor is more malty. Mild bitterness. A bit on the bland side. Not impressive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at brewpub: once again, very similar structure to the IPA. Typical PNW hop notes, caramel, medium to light body, quite drinkable. Solid.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Not sure if this is the same pale ale I had at the brewpub based on all the low ratings I see here. The one I had was closer to an IPA in taste and character and was an overall great beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Flavor is some floral cascade hops and a bit of malt. Much like SNPA, but with some more caramel. Even balance between cascade hops and malt. A little dull, doesn’t excite and it’s nothing new. Makes me feel tired of cascades. I’d like to see more originality.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the 21A. Pours a translucent amber with golden notes and a medium white head that laced. Aroma of light citrusy and floral notes, light caramel and bready malt. Flavor of the same with light metallic notes.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at brewpub. Slightly hazed medium amber with a small off-white head. Pleasant aroma, leading with floral and citrus hops, balanced by toasty malts. Stongly bitter flavor, again citrus hops leading and a bit out of balance with the thin malt backbone, lemon zest in the finish leaving an astringent, drying sensation in the mouth. Medium body and crispy carbonation.
