3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the Willoughby PBCCP tasting on 11/17/2013: Murky pale amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of floral hops, citrus and bready malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a short herbal hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I’ll give this the benefit of the doubt and assume that I got an old bottle or bad batch because this was one of the worst APAs I’ve tried. Orange/amber body frothy white head. Looked nice enough, but the aroma is a faint mineral hops. Taste is only slightly bitter and quite mineral, like licking a pop can. Some slight sweetness. Overall not very good. I’d like to rerate this with a fresh bottle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Yard House Houston. It pours a lightly hazy dark golden body and a small, dense off-white head. The aroma has some caramel maltyness, but it’s the hops that dominates. Pine cones and some citrus notes. Quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation, medium to full body. There’s a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and towards the end. Pine cones and some hop pellets. Not bad at all, but it’s somehow boring anyway. 131112

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Marigold with a thin white head. Big, sweet, citrusy nose. Taste is pretty one dimensional, mix of piney and citrusy bitterness without malts balancing it out. Fairly thin bodied, clean and dry palate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours golden blond with a small bright white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, tangerines, with hay, biscuity malt, farm smell, nice. Lean body, some nice malt flavor, toffee, and good bitterness level; there are some pleasant hop qualities, but probably was not stored too well. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, fizzy mouthfeel, and a crisp finish

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a murky amber-copper color with a medium white head that slowly recedes to a splotchy film. The aroma is kinda nice with grapefruit, oranges and a bit of sweet malts. The taste is a good bready malt base nicely accentuated by light citrus hops. The palate is full and smooth with lively carbonation. Finishes long and dry with lingering bready malts. Overall: Not stellar, but decent and tasty.
