3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper with medium off white head, decent retention and a little lacing. Aroma is piney, resinous, citrus and floral hops. Flavor is citrus and resinous hops, with a mildly oily, bitter hop finish. Hint of malt in the finish as well. Moderate carbonation, light body, and crisp texture. A pretty good pale ale, hoppy, floral, drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bright aroma with a good floral quality, especially early on. Flavor-wise, this settled into a less distinctive APA, with moderate malt backbone and tempered hops--I’m surprised to see the Cascade and Centennial, less surprised by the Citra. Drinkable. Bottle.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Mildly hazy orange color with a soapy head and high amount of carbonation. Nose has a distinct grapefruit, citrus hops and caramel malts. Flavor consists of citrus hops, barley, caramel, malts and a resin aftertaste. Body is moderate in weight and the carbonation is mild. Good but not great.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear dark copper color with a large, creamy beige head. Decent bits of lacing. Has all the qualities I like in what could be a daily drinker. Nose is bright with citrus and resin, light malt presence. A flavorful taste, but not over the top. Good citrus and resin and again I’m only lightly aware of the caramel malts. Good stuff, I’d drink this again any time.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Central Market, 8/26/13
Aroma: The nose of this one is pretty hoppy, with some pine/grass, citrus, and a bit of spice
Appearance: It pours an orange color with a small foam of off-white head and some spotty lace
Flavor: The flavor is dry and bitter up-front and lightly sweet, the bitterness fades in the finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has some stickiness, plus carbonation, and a shortish duration
This is a more than solid APA, that I may even have given a higher score, except the hop flavor just doesn’t sustain through the whole palate. Other than the brevity of the flavor, I don’t have many complaints. Nice stuff.

4.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
Perfect example of an APA. Not super bitter, well rounded, hoppy and smooth with a little sweetness. All this from the bottle when you need to get Sierra Nevada in a can to come even close to its balance.
