4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hazy copper, amber color with no head & light lacing. The aroma is very grapefruity with hops, fresh & floral. Light hopiness compliments the malts perfectly. The use of specialty hops is the key I think. Finishes lightly sweet & bitter. mmmmmmm, not over the top like Stone Pale, more balanced like it should be. Definately dry hopped I think.

Good pale ale. Spicy hopped and a little bitter. Nice pale gold color. Aroma is spicy pungent hop with light malt. Good malt backbone to keep it balanced

Amber pour with a small head and sparse lacing. Nice balance of citrus and floral hops in the aroma along with some maltiness. Very well balanced flavors. The malt and hops blend together very well leaving you with just a touch of alcohol. Nice body. Hoppy palate with a bitter finish. Very good pale ale.

Burnt auburn in color, small creamy head that fades quickly. Nice hop nose, with some sweet maltiness coming through as well. Full of grapefruit, this is extremely thirst quenching. Has a great bite up front that fades into a smooth clean finish. Very well balanced.

Pours a nice dark golden orange with a staple white head. Smells of American hops, citrus and notes of straw. Nice body and hop aftertaste. I liked this one a lot.

Draught. Poured deep amber with thin white head. Aroma of flowers and citrus. Flavour was hoppy, hoppier than a pale, but not so much as an India. Full mouthfeel. Lasting malt finish with more hoppiness.

Tap... Poured a hazy amberish-red with a white head, really nice lacing. Aroma of floral hops and earthy grains. A little bit of hops initially in the flavor but then the focus came to the creamy, caramel malts and bread-like flavors towards the finish.

Amber in color with a frothy head. clear on first pour with a sediment cloud on the second. Sweet caramel apple aroma. Very fruity flavor, juicy citric flavor, and building sweetness develops as it warms. This is a real nice pale ale.

Bright amber with a thick, lasting head. Woody, caramelly, earthy aroma. Moderate bitterness, moderate body. Earthy, with lots of hop woodiness and rich malts. Not very complex but well-balanced.
