4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on draft at the brewpub. Barley Browns makes fantastic pale ales. Big juicy hops, tangerine, citrus, the hops do come across a bit soapy. Bready malts round out this beer.

GABF 2010. pretty light APA across the board in my opinion. Grassy herbal hops, little hop bite, soapy, lighter in mouthfeel & flavor IMO. Also had the poor timing of following Cascade sours, so this may be coming in lighter than it should

Growler from Barley Brown’s brewpub.Aroma is a mild floral boquet and sweet malt. Pours a cloudy amber with adequate medium white head.Taste is wonderfully balanced mix of citrus (grapefruit) and sweet malt. I’m not a big IPA fan, but this pale ale has my vote for just the right bit of hops, not too sharp. Good body and nice mellow finish. On the whole, a different beer taste for me, but quite enjoyable. I’ll definitley be back for more!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured a burn orange with a white head. Aroma of faint, floral hops with sweet malts. Foamy, thick, well-carbonated palate that hosted an awesome balance of floral hops and bready malts. Zesty finish of peppery and resinous hops.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A fresh growler from the brewpub. Very bold piney aroma. Pours very cloudy amber with a modest head and lacings. Taste is bitter resinous hops with a funky character. Some soapiness, a little sour, and astringent. The malts play a fairly minor role in this beer. Good body for the style and hop levels verge on IPA territory. Overall an unusual beer but quite enjoyable. Drinkability is medium and I would guess the abv is about 6%. Two pints did the trick for me.

A good well balanced NW style APA. Lovely floral and citrus hops hanging around the nose, strong biscuity maltiness with notes of caramel sweetness, does very well complimenting the citrus fruitiness in every sip. Nicely done.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the pub. Pours a lovely, hazed goldenish yellow with a nice white head. Mellow, balanced citrus and hopped up aroma. Smells like it should. Flavor is actually overwhelmingly damn good! Very straight forward pale, hopped up throughout with a balanced sweet malt kick. I’d honestly put this up there with Dale’s...even easier to drink it is. Nice, medium to full body, fairly carbonated. Not much to say as we’ve all had a pale ale, but I really enjoyed this!
