3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Mostly clear golden color with a small white head. Grassy and grainy aroma, pretty nice. Interesting flavor, almost a bit roasty, with biscuit and caramel. Not too hoppy. Medium-light body with good carbonation. Nice "session beer" if you can call it that.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Capone’s. Pours pale gold with fluffy white head. Nose is resiny hops, black pepper, spicy yeasty. Tastes hoppy, fruity with mango and pineapple, resiny, spicy with black pepper. Medium palate heft. This one is not a 3.0 beer. It is a 3.5 and higher beer. Trust me on that, and try this one if you see it.

Tap at Pony Bar. Pale golden pour. The nose is softly hoppy with orange peel and a light malt base. A kiss of spice and some light fruit. There is a bit of soft toast. It’s simple but decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Fountainhead. I’m really not sure why this is called an EPA. It is a low abv APA. Anyway, pours an attractive golden amber with a sticky white head. Nose is spicy and citrusy, faint caramel malt notes as well. On taste, soft bitterness and grassy and fruity hops. Light estery fruitiness as well. Light and refreshing. Pretty decent pint, this one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Whole Foods. There is a dash of green in the dark tan pour. Top of the heap aroma - sweet mellow hops, freshly baked cookies. green leaves. The taste is peppy and hoppy (Amarillo? Just a guess). It is pretty light on the palate, and not sugary or heavy on the malts. There are some green hops in the aftertaste. A really good PA - glad I had it fresh.
