4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma of sweet malt with muted pine resin - like the IPA but toned down a bit. Appears a pale but brassy yellow with notable effervescence, and with a creamy white head. Flavor is well-balanced with bready malt notes underlying western hops, and finishing with a pleasant residual sweetness. Palate is medium to medium-light ad very refreshing. Overall, greater than my expectations and a thoroughly enjoyable brew.

A goto for sure bomber if you are not into a big ale smith brew. Nice hops and some Vienna malts in aroma. Super clean beer with tight head and lively carbonation.

Appearance looks more like a lager than a pale. Solid all the way around though especially the very subtle honey flavors that then grows nicely bitter with a hoppy finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Gonzo Beer, Coventry. Golden colour, thick white head. Gosh these American pints are big. Aroma a has tropical fruit, citrus and pine. Taste is slightly sweet and has a bitter finish. To be honest, it got a bit too much by the end.

650 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Clear golden body with a medium sized white head. Nice, easy and refreshing aroma with citric fruit, some tropical fruit, light malt and hint of pine. Flavor has lots of fruit like aroma, some malt and decent bitterness. Balanced body and OK aftertaste. Nice and refreshing, might have some more bitterness, maybe a bit old?

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours with a thick white head atop a straw yellow body. Deceivingly full bodied - light in flavour & bitterness at first but then you notice why with the malt backbone coming through. This is not a complex ale - it is very simple but what it does, it does very well. Hop flavour is piney with some citrus & smooth maltiness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pretty light color here, golden and hazy, with a rollicking head of sticky white foam. Drinks with a fairly light palate, a sticky, piney consistency, and a definite pine cone bite. Overall light and fruity. (#5939, 3/3/2015)

Couleur dorée translucide avec un col blanc. Aromes de caramel, herbe, céréales, agrumes. Correct, un peu décu de cette bière!

Fra 65 cl flaske på Cardinaltreff feb-15: lys gylden med moderat skum. Tropiske frukter, litt furunål og naturligvis citrus både i aroma og smak. Flott balansert med maltsødmen og umåte lett å helle innenfor snippen. Amerikanske craft brewers trår sjelden feil i denne stilarten. Lekker.
