Had it out of a 22oz bottle. Poured a partly hazy orange hue, with a light beige head and uneven lacing. Taste is of light cascade hops with a smooth medium taste, and a malt finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A Textbook-generic citrusy American pale ale. Clean and refreshing. Good.
How: Tap at Pizzeria de Pirilo, San Juan, PR.
The look: Clear pale golden body topped by a small white head.
In long: The soft fruity-hoppy nose is typical citrusy hops, and American pale ale like we’ve all smelled a million times before. The light-medium malt backbone is honeyed fresh cereals, very smooth and bready. Flavors are mostly juicy-fruity, like fresh soft cereals swimming in fresh citrus fruits. Nothing new here, this is clean beer, slender body, hopped with moderation, designed to be consumed a six-pack at time without palate fatigue. My rating number 5600, another great milestone, I’m so glad ratebeer broke me of that awful doing sports addiction I used to have, I mean, what a waste of time that was!

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Amber with large white head. Aroma is grassy hops with a slight nuttiness. Flavor is lightly hoppy with notes of fresh cut grass. A slightly toasted malt finish is pleasant and it finishes slightly bitter. Really nice, easily drinkable pale ale. Great for spring or sessioning.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Proof. Clear deep gold pour with a loose bubbly white head. Aroma of pale sweet bready grains with piney hops and a hint of citrus. Dry sweetish malts up front and through mid palate with a floral piney hops on the back end. Quick slightly bitter end. Decent, and very drinkable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bomber served in a snifter. Pours orange-amber with a light white head. Modest head retention; spotty lacing.
S: Grassy and herbal hops with some faint citrus. A solid malt base.
T: Nice fruity-grassy flavor from the hops grab attention from the underlying sweet malt with it hints of toffee. Orange is the most obvious component of the citrus character.
M: Light/medium body and mild carbonation, smooth; exceptionally dry finish for style.
O: An exceptional example of the APA style from a very reliable brewer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A - Pours a clear amber with a fluffy 1 finger off-white head. Good retention with a decent amount of lacing.
S - Honey, bready, red apples,
T - Apple, biscuit malt, soft citrus around the edges, honey, walnuts, mild bitterness at the end. Finishes crisp and dry. Citrus really comes out on the aftertase.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, nice.
A fine example of the Pale Ale. Nothing complex but good all around. Wish this was in 6 packs here.

Bottle. Bear Republic does great work, but this beer did not stand out when tasted next to BR Black Racer and Stone Cali-Belgique.

Draft at Farmers Cabinet. Hazy orange pour with a short frothy head. Pleasant aroma. Taste has a slightly funky element that could just mean I have a bad batch. Toasted wheat. Green grapes. Hay. Oyster crackers. Red leaves. Biscuits. Dried figs. Anbesol. Certainly more complex than most Pale Ales. Still not positive if I have a tainted batch or not. Feels a bit thin so it could be an old keg. Enough good odd elements that I can?t seem to stop drinking it!
