4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Capped 750 from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, Mo. Pours hazy copper with a 3 finger creamy off-white head. Aroma (thru all that head) seems citrus and floral. Med body or better. Flavor is pretty darn hoppy, and the mild roast malt is almost annihilated. I’m voting now for flora and citrus flavor. Might be a touch of pine. Probably is. Nice stuff. And my face didn’t melt off. Lots of hop in a pale ale is the way to go. Finishes dry and bitter.

Pours a muddy copper with a pillowy head. Lots of lacing. Nose is dank pine hops, a little grapefruit. Great medium-bodied mouthfeel, carbonation is well-balanced. Taste is molasses bread, piney hop bitterness. Tastes like hop extract a bit though. Good hop flavor for only 37 IBUs. As it warms, the alcohol becomes more pronounced. Reminds me a bit of Dale’s Pale Ale. Really solid APA.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and floral aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

On tap at Bailey’s. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice sweet citrus with a light fruit note and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has same sweet citrus with a bit more bitterness and light fruit as well as sweet grain backing.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft on tap at Bailey’s Range (St. Llouis, MO). Pours a nice glowing orange amber hue, a deeper glow, faint haze and mellow carbonation. Frothy offwhite head stays as a decent ring, laces ok. Aromas show some orange juice, grapefruit pulp and gentle florals. A kiss of melon, bready malts and decent bitterness kicks in. Initial is lighter end of the fold, pleasant gumball and melon meet some orange, a bit of bready malt with firmer bitterness as we start to move on. Grapefruit rind and pith, bitter florals and a bit of weedy green. The bitterness is on point, fresh and enjoyable with a bit of juiciness. Dry and floral finish with a bit of a fruity gumball/melon kiss. The beer is pretty fresh, hoppy with some nice fruity vibes and juiciness at times. Tasty.

Sampled at 4 Hand’s Lupulin Fest 2013 - 2nd shift continues with another winner here. Pours hazy orange with a white head. The aroma has mild caramel malt, cream and mild hop bitterness. It has a medium body that’s fairly lush and smooth with soft carbonation. The flavor begins with toasty malt, dry bread, grapefruit, pine and earthiness. The finish is resiny, dry and has a bit of tangerine. Lots of flavors packed in for one of the lower alcohol hoppy beers from 2nd shift.

750 thanks to Seth. Nice orange pour. Somewhat malty. Nice bitter taste and finish. Some citrus. I get what they are going for here: very drinkable APA. Nice.

750 ml bottle from in-person STL trade. Pours a cloudy bright golden color with a finger of cream-colored head that laces the glass. Notes of citrus, bread, herbs, grass, florals, dry grains, and faint tropical fruit. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a bready, bitter mouthfeel. Nice, well-balanced APA.
