Draft at Dewey’s Pizza in Clifton. Light amber color, ample head with good retention, mild hoppy/ citrus aroma, sensation of assertive but not overbearing hops with a hint of grapefruit coating the tongue like pure maple syrup on pancakes. Decent brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours gold with about a half inch foamy head. Nice mellow piney hops with a slight bitterness. It seemed to smooth out as it warmed up. Altogether good but not among the best apa’s.

Pours a amberish orange with a white head. The aroma is lightly citrusy with some pine and caramel malt. Flavor has a touch of citrus and bready. Finish leaves a pinprick of bitterness on the palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
A good, crisp pale ale that I sampled in a pint glass. The color was a cloudy medium honey-gold with a big, foamy and bubbly white head. The aroma was mostly citrus and pine hops, with some caramel malt for balance, and maybe a touch of cereal. A moderately bitter taste with some underlying sourness; not a sweet beer at all. It was smooth and full-bodied, with a drying effect at the end. The carbonation was average, but there was a pleasant fizzyness on the palate.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pours a honey color with a two finger fluffy off white head. aroma is hops, malt, and a little medicine or band-aid like. has a medium body with lacing that follows the liquid and good carbonation. flavor is the same as aroma with some orange peel and pine. has a somewhat oily mouth-feel, but the medicine/ band-aid taste is a little annoying. has a small dry hop aftertaste and i would say this is an average apa there is definitely better out there.
