3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a golden yellow color with a big, rocky white head that lingers. Nice hop bouquet, very citrusy and somewhat sweet. Medium bodied with medium carbonation, the flavor is well balanced between the hops and the malty sweetness. The finish is slightly sweet at first then the hops take over with a lingering bitterness. A good american style pale ale, leaning towards the hoppy side, but fairly well balanced and clean.

Nothing particularly special here. That is nothing particularly bad and nothing particularly good, other than the fluffy white head that stayed around for quite some time. A little more than lightly hopped.

Pretty light beer that is slightly dry. It has a citrusy malty aroma and finishes with a moderate sharp bitterness. Seems to go pretty well with sweet food (barbeque...), probably due to its dryness. Otherwise a ho-hum brew.

A mediocre apa. Very little aroma which was a little bitter and malty.

Yellow-golden in color with a nice hoppy flavor. hints of malts yet refreshing in taste and not too filling. nice bitterness to it with a dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
yellow as a pollen-plump bumble bee amid sun-drenched daffodils; with paper-white suds and lace. nose is mostly piney hops, with a twist of something melon-like, honeydew perhaps. good carbonation and lightly sweet yellow-cake malts go riding tandem off into the sunset, till the hoppy villanous counterpoint causes them to careen toward a bitter finish. pretty decent flagship pale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Has a cloudy golden color and a hoppy smell. Taste is like an IPA to me with a funny almost medicene aftertaste. Overall I did not like this too much because of the aftertaste...

Bottle. A medium golden hue with a white head. A strong hop aroma. Dry bitter flavor with a musty aftertaste.
