4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine, Raleigh, NC (Triangle). Yellowish-orange pour with a frothy white head. Aroma of grapefruit and pine needles. Beautiful bitter taste of grapefruit rind, wet grass, pine, and tangerine. Light bodied and very bitter for a pale ale. Great beer and one of the best American Pale Ale’s I have ever tried.

Pours a golden yellow with an effervescent thick white head. Excellent lacing. Aromas of hops and light citrus (orange and lemon). A lighter IPA with a pleasant smooth and slightly sweet flavor of citrus. A hint of metallic undertone, especially in the lasting aftertaste. A nice, easy summer day beer.

Botella de 65 cl, adquirida en tienda XXXII. Color dorado. Sabor a lupulo, ligeramente citrico y resinoso. Muy refrescante y facil de beber. Recuerda al sabor de una IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottled 10+ months ago from Coconuts. Light orange and pretty clear appearance with a lacy beige head. Pretty nice aroma actually, considering its age. Tropical notes, citrusy hops, pine and light resin. Similar flavor, adding moderate bitterness and a husky, musty finish. Medium body. This held up pretty well. I’ll have to try a fresh one next time.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Supposedly fresh. Hazy, golden-orange body with a volumetric, chunky & foamy eggshell cap. Five fingers at least. Spicy, herbaceous pine cone aroma with some bitter fruit zest & a moderately crisp, bready & yeast filled finish. More spicy pine on the palate with vaguel fruit peels bringing a stingy bitterness. Mild florals lingering into the aftertaste over a bready underbody. Carbonation is overdone, the beer literally has no body once it hits your tongue; it nearly evaporates. A decent beer, but not great. I had a bottle of this very early in my craft days (before rating) & remember liking it much more.

On tap at Ridgewood (Raleigh).
Pours a nice clear light amber with a finger or so of head. Mild, crisp aroma. Mild taste - maybe too mild - with a touch of bitterness.

Form HyVee Springfield. Back in the day this would have been considered a IPA, but since it is from the west coast and it doesn’t actually have fresh hops floating in it is just a APA. If you like bright fresh hops taste with lemony piney hops and grapefruit you’ll love this stuff. I enjoyed it but I could have used a little less hops and a little more malty balance, it was too pale to support the big hop dose. Chewy for the strength. Serving: Bottle

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear light golden pour, small white head.
Nose with hops and citrus, crisp malty and hoppy taste.
Not far from an IPA, really good.
Medium body, average carbonation.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle (bomber). Poured into a pint glass. Hazy orange light bronze color with a fluffy fresh head that sits nicely. Smell and characteristics of a hoppy pale ale but very sessionable without the extra bitterness of an IPA. Really good one

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
ReAlly smart. Light touch by any definition with soft spices, honey fruits and minerals. Massively sessionable but that would seem unfair to describe such a classy beer.
