3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Toad in the Hole. Infinitesimal haze in deep gold with small persistent head and copious lace. Initial pukey aroma with more pleasing herbal, leafy notes. Sharp mineral bitter precedes delicate cake-cone malt, earthy and grassy/herbal hops, and a twinge of diacetyl or caramel. Crunchy and slightly curdling finish.

Gold like the name would suggest. Very hoppy. Pretty grainy with good malts for balance. Finishes pretty clean.

color is golden with a little haze. had a pretty long lasting head. Pretty drinkable and easy to swallow. Seemed to be on the expensive side though.

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.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Drank other times without rating, but had to rate this one from the can. Pours very golden with good carbonation and prominent piney hop aroma. The lean body is built on a clean base malt flavor with specialty malt complexity, and neutral yeast, plus a piney (Cascade) hop flavor that is forward and builds to a bit of a fruity and a bitter finish.

Bottle from Soho Wine at home. Translucent golden pour with grassy aroma. Taste is crisp and bitter hops. Light palate. Standard pale ale but a bit boring.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Sunny yellow color, big white head. Pine, malt, grass, wood. Oily, piny hops, along with sweeter malts, no bitterness, no real aftertaste. Beer gets unusually sweet in the end for an IPA. Carbonation is low, smooth mouthfeel, but the beer is rather boring. Slightly bitter touch at the very end for a moment.
