3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, bright light orange body and a big, soapy, bright white head. Clean malt and lemony hops dominate, with very light and drying resinous aftertastes and just a hint of alcohol near room temperature. Light and clean palate that does not overwhelm given all of the flavor this beer possesses. Usually, my palate is saturated by overwhelming pale ales, but this APA is one that I can have several of and walk away with a fairly clean palate, even going back to lighter styles like a kolsch or pils.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a bit cloudy light orange with moderate head, diminishing with good lacing. Pine, citrus (grapefruit for sure) and grassy nose. Easy drinking, pretty well balanced but a bit too much grass & grapefruit for my taste.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours yellow with non-excistent head which fades quickly. Aroma has lots of pineapple, citrus, fruity. Superb smell, gotta love this. Taste is hoppy, sweet malts. Goes into a perfectly balanced bitterness that makes this beer especially refreshing. Fantastic Pale Ale, I love this much more than their IPA accually.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
rather pale and clear, nice head. American piney hop aromas, very interesting. Super nice citrus and some flowery hay/earthy taste. Something very distinct, yet very drinkable and great Pale Ale. It?s too rare that one has the opportunity to have something like this.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours a very hazy dark golden color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose has some citrus and pine coming through, and just seems super fresh. Taste is slightly bitter, and just a bit crisp, with good clean hop flavors coming through. Really quite pleasant.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a slightly hazy very pale yellow color with a small fluffy white head that left good lacing. The aroma was dryish and bitter with vague fruity hops and a touch of herbal hops. The flavor was thin and bitter with sharp fruity and floral hosp with a faint tangy undertone. Medium length finish. Light body. Meh.
