3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle shared by shigadeyo. Thanks Craig! Pours a hazy golden color with a small white head. The aroma is sweet pale malt, floral with moderate orange citrus notes. The flavor has a decent mix of malt and hops. Pretty big for a pale ale. Toasted caramel malts with nice citrus hops. Medium bitterness and very drinkable.

On tap at the brewery. Fairly pale bronze color with whit head. Aroma of citrusy hops. Hop bitterness is solid with a good finish, but the malt side is a bit weak and overly caramel. Still, a solid APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle... Poured a hazy orange with a thick, frothy, white head. Aroma of strong NW hops, giving a peppery, resinous spiciness to it. Malts came through more evident in the flavor creating a rich balance which was also aided by the yeast notes, creating apricot, mango, passion fruit, and other light-fruit tones.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head and a good lace. The aroma is nice & fruity with some mango and citrus with just a mild caramel hint. The flavor follows with some nice melon and citrus. There is some distinct bitterness in there as well, more bitterness than say your average citrusy fruity pale ale/IPA. There is a mild biscuit maltiness in there as well and not really any sweetness. This is very tasty.

On tap at the National Homebrew Competition. Pour was slightly hazy golden with a nice white foamy head. Aroma was of citrus, grapefruit, and a lot of hops. Flavors were well blended and quite bitter with, again, a great deal of hop flavors. Very nice brew. Nice blend and refreshing.
