3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
An exellent example of an APA, this brew has a clear golden body with a two-finger, creamy white head. The nose is an aromatic blending of buscuity malts wiyth a daub of honey and zest of lemon, grapefruit, and pine scents. The flavor, too, is a smooth blend of the above with none taking dominance, simply melding to deliver a refreshing drink. With a 5% ABV, this is a great session ale... or, would be, if it was available in my area.

Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Poured a very light golden with a wonderful hop aroma. Taste was a very hoppy/ grapefruitty with a good malt balance. I really enjoyed this beer. Too bad it isn’t more easily obtained.

Honey colored with a white head and floaties. Aroma is strong grapefruit. Flavor is a bit sweet, and tastes like leaves from a tree. Watery and ordinary.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle poured a clear gold color with a nice white head. The aroma was more spice and pine hops than citrus with some light caramel malt notes. The taste was balanced with no lingering bitterness and a nice crisp finish. Overall an excellent Extra Pale, but just an ok American Pale.

This is actually an extra pale ale, so i give it high marks for its full body, strong hops scents and easy to drink finish. Its the perfect beer to share with people who dont know anything bout beer. Youll have a hearty brew and theyll have a crisp refreshing drink. Very well done for its catagory.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2006 Pale amber pour with white head. When you pour it a piney citrus and malt aroma jumps out at you. Flavors of lemon citrus, hops, and a balanced malt flavor. Flavors are not that strong, and the beer is very smooth and drinkable.
