3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours clear pale gold with small head that quickly subsides, and lively carbonation. Aroma is pleasant citrusy and grassy hops and pungent mango, very nice and interesting how specifically that mango note jumps out. Taste is sweet and juicy with lots of mango/tropical character and white grape, then fading into pine and a semi-dry finish crackery finish. Not very bitter, and good body. If this were a local for me I’d seek it out again.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at brewery. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong tropical fruit hop, resin, and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with nice wet hop, tropical fruit, and light bitterness. Very impressive.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours a clear amber-gold with a light, fine-grained cream-colored head. Nose is citrus, rosemary, and a little dry floral notes. Creamy on the tongue, with some hops bitterness, but mostly with a round, savory, doughy, almost cheesy note. Butter on fresh bread comes to mind. Finishes long and a little indistinct. Decent, but a little unfocused.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at Black Star Co-op. Light gold pour, thin white head. Nose is spruce & pine. Bitter. Middle is creamy malt and peppery hops, hint of orange peel. Finish is medium length, high bitterness. Wonderful with their avocado club (Avo, white cheddar, stir fried onions, bibb, tomato, on grilled sourdough; I added bacon). Life was good.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Smell is fresh and bright, big hops. Lots of aroma on this one with some citrus, pine and pot like smells. Taste is hoppy, crisp, a touch earthy, fruity and nicely bitter. Comes off like a 2/2 IPA rather than a 1/2 IPA really. Dry, tasty and perfectly carbonated with a lightly prickly mouthfeel and lighter body. Very drinkable and enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the Whip In. Golden pour with a white head. The aroma has some very nice tropical fruit notes. I get some apricot and mango character as well as some biscuit malt. The flavor is similar. The juicy fruit notes are complemented by a bit of pine. Low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Great hoppy pale ale. Wish we got this brewery in Dallas.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes: pours a clear light straw golden color with light white head. Citrus, pine, grass, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. More malty than I would have liked, would’ve liked more hop bitterness on this one. Finishes with some bready notes.
