Pretty darn hoppy and crisp. True hopheads will like this one, I think. Very floral and bitter in nature.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good golden appearance. White head that fades to good lacing. Floral hops, good malt backbone, good bitter finish. Like a smallish version of an American IPA.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very pretty gold color with ample white head. A bit too light perhaps but quite drinkable with good balance and hops finish. Not the best APA but holds it's own IMO.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
pours a gold radiant color with a big head leaving lots of lace. dry aroma, hints of hay, hops summertime but all in all its too mellow. strongly tingling feel, light and whispy. clean finish, very light in flavor. bready but not like a good Parisian Baguette, more like American sliced white bread

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This poured a nice golden color with a very light and bubbly head. The aroma was of hops and a touch of caramel, citrus and pine. A very bubbly and astringent palate. The taste was earthy, piney and lightly hopped. The end was bitter and drying. Not too great...not terrible.

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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.
