3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Nice well balanced brew with an assertive, but well balanced hop character, clean finish and high drinkability.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(5% abv bottle). Clear amber colour with a white head. Light, hoppy aroma with caramel, grapefruit, apricot, pineapple. Light body and carbonation. The flavour has grapefruit and honey, orange and caramel. Quite enjoyable.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden color with a small head. Aroma is very faint but floral. Very thin tasting and light flavor. Next time I’ll reach for the Hop Ottin over this one. This seemed to be more of a blonde ale than an APA.

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...

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Eh.....not much to say about this one. Some hops in the aroma, followed by some malt. Flavor is a decent balance of hops and malt. The hop component of this was muddled.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
partially hazed, agressively carbonated golden body with a soft dense white head. pale malts underlie a prevalent hop character. Minty, fruity and spicy: must be Mt Hoods and/or Cascades. initially sweet and malty giving way to a citrucy hop character terminating in a harmonious blending of toasty caramel and pale malts with resinous dry, bitter hoppiness. not bad, an easy drinking APA. some breadiness and oily bitterness later on.

Pours a clear straw golden color with a medium sized white head. Aroma of grass, malts, and light lemon. Flavor of pale malt, grass and honey. A bit of bitterness at the finish.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours amber-gold with a dense, two-finger head. Citrusy and piney aroma with some underlying caramel-ish malt. Flavor begins acridly bitter and sharp. After it mellows, it’s an inoffensive, fairly well-balanced APA. But, like a James Joyce novel, it’s hard to get past the beginning.
