3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Wine Warehouse, C’ville. Deep gold pour with a prominent creamy white head. The nose is of pine cone, PNW grassy hops. Moderate sweet caramel malt, funnel cake. Some juicy fruit gum. Dry pine needle flavor. Somewhat chalky bitterness. Just a bit of white bread. Fairly simple, without great depth of flavor. Medium body, active carbonation. Overall, this isn’t one of Bear Republic’s better offerings. Solid, but by no means a compelling beer.

Light sweet flavor with mellow bitter hay, pine needles, lemon rind, some dry pale bread, biscuits. Light to medium bodied with average carbonation.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. An interesting twist, seemingly wheaty in its base, but a sharp and acidic hoppy beer up front. Quite floral and fruity, but there’s a different little yeasty/gritty thing in the backdrop. (#5722, 9/7/2014)

Enjoyed at FWIBF 2014... Clear yellow orange... Aroma of light citrus hops... Flavor is fairly dry, light citrus hops... Decent, nothing special

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a really nice APA. The pour was light gold in color but with a minimal off-white head. The head left some nice lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose was balanced, with some caramel, earth, grass, light grapefruit and yeast. The body and flavors were delicious, with notes of spicy and floral hops, a touch of sweet malt and some yeast and fruit. This is definitely one of the better American-style pale ales available right now.
