4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light-hazed, golden amber body, mildly effervescent, under a 3-finger cream-colored head which lasts. Big hop nose of lemon, pine and "new car smell". Well-balanced flavor, but leaning (as it should) towards the hops. Pine is prominent and bitter in flavor with resin and greenery, but a mild caramel sweetness keeps that in check. A dash of pepper shows late. Totally sessionable, dry and maybe a little thin on the palate, but otherwise nothing wrong with this baby! ~~~~~~~~ 12 oz. bottle courtesy of my old buddy Norm.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pour. Tannish orange with a light orange aroma. Refreshing upfront that leads to a sweet squish of juice with no bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A hazy, burnt orange pour with a frothy, white head. It has a citrus aroma with some mild earthy, pine. The medium body has sort of a slick texture with lively carbonation. The taste is bitter, but it lightens up in the finish.

12oz bottle 3/7/14 (Binny’s Downers Grove Mix A Six)-41° in Shaker-Pours a hazy lighter amber with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste of the same with more hops and bitterness on the back end. This medium bodied brew is super hoppy and super tasty. Nice job.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Light and refreshing. All the flavors of a pale ale -- hoppy, but with a bright citrus and pine taste. I dislike most pale ales because of the bitter aftertaste, but Hopalicious is not bitter at all and the aftertaste is pleasant. Excellent!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy darker golden with a medium white head. The aroma has grassy and citrus hops, orange, caramel malts, and light pine. Taste brings in a good amount of piney bitterness. I find grapefruit, pineapple, and some slight orange. I don’t get much maltiness that I detected earlier. Short aftertaste is pine. Light in body, with a slick texture, with some lively carbonation. This one is crisp and is easy drinking. Refreshing actually. This is a solid beer.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a very hazy golden/orange with a finger of white head that dissipates very quickly to a thin ring. Moderate carbonation and decent lacing. Nose is all citrus. A ton of grapefruit and orange with a slight sweetness brought on by pineapple and grapes. Mouth is almost the same. All citrus. You can really get the balance of cascade and citra hops. Great finish with a slight bitterness. Very good APA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
First of all, 11 additions! Crazy. Bottle thanks to cbfobes. Pours a hazy golden orange hazy color with a slight white head. Light citrusy aroma, some tangerine, slight grass. Taste is light and just a hint of bitterness. Light body and medium high carb. Extremely drinkable but light on flavor compared to the best of the best. Still a great beer that I could enjoy all day.
