4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler from Save On. Bright clear gold with lasting head and lotsa lace. Citrus rind with a little fruit aroma. Mild unripe peach fruity sweetness and a hint of crackery malt with assertive grapefruit rind bitterness and very dry finish. Light but not watery. Excellent. I could drink this all night...and I think I will.

Pours copper with white head and tons of lacing. Aroma is average strength, but the taste is loaded like a hop cannon. This is a pale ale? Wow. Tons of piney, earthy, and slightly citrus hops with caramel malts.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at SAMs. Pours hazy orange amber with a steady medium sizes meringue off white head. Nose is very fresh, thank you 9lb 8oz baby Jesus, with some notes of Meyer lemons, guava, papaya, florals. Really interesting and different profile than almost any ipa I have ever had. No resin at all-a super soft bitterness. Super easy drinking. Wow, I wonder how they made this happen. The hops used seem like many of the usual suspects. Definitely one of the best low abv ipa’s (<5) that I have ever had.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft from Vintner. Holy shit what a hoppy pale ale. Strong, refreshing, easy drinking. Nose is full of citrus and hops, some grapefruits - smells basically like a hop vine. Taste is similar, bitter, tangy, refreshing, really solid. I could drink this any time, but only if its fresh. I am loving the fresh beer trend I have been seeing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Dutch’s. Pours a hazy dark golden amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have light caramel malts, toasted bread, grassy and earthy hops with mild to moderate bitterness to the finish. Dry and light to medium body. Decent, but I would like to see more flavoring hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear dark amber hue with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy aroma of complex hops. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Well balanced flavor hops with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration. This is a solid drinkable brew.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Dutch’s. Keg labeled 5.5%. Mostly hazy orange-golden color.Thin off-white head, leaves great, thicker lace. Medium body. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Smooth and easy drinking. Very nice grassy hop aroma, lightly citrusy. Great bigger bitter taste. Nice grassy, lightly earthy amarillo dry hop in the aftertaste. I feel like the massive dry hop here might over power the wet hops, but its still a very pleasantly hoppy pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft to pint at Dutch’s. Looks good; a transparent golden orange with foamy off-whitte head that dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells solid; nice and hoppy. Sweetness from the pale malt too. Tastes like it smells with some added bitterness. Average on the palate. A nice wet-hopped APA.
