Bottle. Amber with a mostly diminishing head. Some tiny spots of lacing. Aroma of caramel malt with some citrusy hops and leather. Basically a biscuity malt flavor with some hop backing. Thin, slightly watery and fizzy palate. Overall not bad, and would make a decent session beer, but I’m not particularly impressed with this one, especially given the superior Boont amber ale and Hop Ottin IPA offerings of the same brewer.

Slight musty aroma with a hint of orange. Taste is light and fruity with a bitter hop finish. Light bodied, refreshing. Not very complex but a nice pale. Later on getting some grapefruit tastes and aromas as well.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A hearty APA is the only way I can describe this one. Pours and smells like any other pale ale. The taste is strongly bitter with hops, pine, and grass flavors. Mellows into a smoother malt and caramel. Probably the most bitter APA I’ve ever had.

via trade with IrishBoy - Pours a golden color with a small off white head. Aroma has a light grassy, earthy hop scent. The flavor is slightly bitter with a little grassy, citrus hop flavor. Light to medium body. Worth a try. Thanks Richard.

12oz bottle poured a hazy gold color with a small white head. Aromas of piney hops with a little honey note. Has a good balance of hop bitterness and malt with a dry finish. Overall a clean Pale Ale with good balance and moderate alcohol.
