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.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Poured into Sam Adams Perfect pint showing about a finger and half of clean white foam and pours golden clear.
The nose shows clean and fresh tropical and exotic fruits (e.g. pineapple, mango) with hints of cannabis and pine.
The palate is medium bodied and very fruit forward - a lot of fresh tropical fruit flavors. The mids show slight malt sweetiness. Slight bitterness at the end rounds off the pale ale. Great beer to start a session and even better fresh during a warmer season. As a pale ale, this is almost perfect.

Pours orange with a white rocky head. Aromas of citrus and pine. Bitter up-front with a pale malt flavor. Very light body and clean tasting with a lingering bitterness. This is a light pale ale at its best without being over-hopped. Very clean and very good.

Pours golden with strong pillowy head. Great floral and citrus hop aroma, with passionfruit. The taste is quite dry, but has all the floral, citrus and passionfruit notes hinted at in the aroma. Very refreshing.
