4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 24, 2014 Pours a beautiful copper color. Aroma is buscuity malt and earthy, citrus hops. Smells wonderful. Flavor up front is mostly just a hop bite but allowing to warm a bit, a strong malt backbone is unleashed, presenting a great pale ale. I dont understand the low ratings. Great hop flavor, great malt flavor. Light bodied, easy drinking. Oily mouthfeel. Everything an APA should be, in my opinion.

Hazy gold, with a ring of foam. Pretty standard, with a good deal of citrus and some caramel aromas. Taste might be a touch more sweet than the aroma indicates. Pretty quaffable.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
1oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is pine-sol-like with a citrus and floral touch along with a medicinal / chemical note and a touch of a funky, sour fruit. It pours clear and oily with a light amber hue and a white soapy head that has moderate retention and lace. The taste is a medium sweet and slightly north of medium bitter. The beer is oily with fizzy carbonation and a medium body. Flavors of underippe stone fruit and bread are most noted with a hint of a bitter citrus juice. The finish is zesty citrus with a floral dryness and leaves an cloying aftertaste of floral, bitter citrus.

transparent gold, effervescent with thick dense white head. Delicate nose is very dry paper bitterness up front, light Belgian yeast influence in candy sugar, pillowy dry grain and peppery malt in waves. Awesome nose. Flatter flavor but still fantastic balance and attenuation.. heavy grass bitterness up front with light cracked grain mid, bit thin and filmy, the hops growing with warmth. This is SOLID. Supper attenuated, no messy sweetness, solid malt complexity, expressive yeast in the nose..

12oz bottle, thanks to shrubber85. Shared with 3 friends. Honestly he gave it to me around 3 months ago, but I was nervous abut opening it because the date on it is 11/21/14. Bottle foams just upon opening, but it doesnít spill over, just goes halfway up the neck. Sure enough, it does taste a little off, but itís not too bad. Maybe a slight brett action here. Itís effervescent, soft carbonation. Dry finish. Clear golden color. Ring and web of white head. Leaves a bit of lace. Some herbal character, a little citrus, bit of farmhouse type funk and a little mustiness. Not too bad, really, a lot better than expected. The funk has done alright here, a lot better than I think it would have been without it. Medium body, kind of an effervescent carbonation. Dry finish. Light to moderate bitter, very light sweet... dry overall. Touch of tang. Overall, surprisingly alright. A touch brett infected I think, but if you look at it as a brett pale ale it kind of works. Nothing too bad about it.
