Draft. Nice deep red body with thin head. Aroma was a very pleasant blend of grapefruit and hops. Flavor was lightly hoppy with a nice sweet malt taste and a very smooth body. Possibly the best Pale Ale I’ve ever had!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
[Cask, double dry-hopped] Poured a hazy amber color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus fruits, toffee, light toasty dough, and a bit of pine. Taste of citrus fruits, light pine, some sweeter toffee, and a moderately bitter finish.

Fine hops flavor is what you get here, and this is the only one I took a growler of, being as the beer sampler had some nice brews, that’s saying something!

This was a decent pale ale typical of the style. I would drink this again.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft... GBOA ’06... Clear yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. Earthy, fruity nose with apricot esters and notes of pine and wood. Earthy, well-balanced flavor with moderately bitter grapefruit rind and light residual sugar. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes crisp, mildly bitter and grassy.

Nice creamy head, dark bronze-like color. Medium body. Aroma of hops and some citrus. Very hoppy taste. This beer tastes very similar to an IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks to by brother in law for getting me a grwoler of this. Pours slight hazy dark straw with a two-finger, creamy, off-white head. Great lace. Aroma of hops, citrus, malt, some black pepper, spiciness, and floral esters. Tastes very hoppy, with floral esters, black pepper, and a finishing semi-dry astringent hop resiny feel. I honestly thought this was an IPA before I sat down to rate it today. Regardless of what you call it, it is a fine beer. Is CH-47 a code for a hop variety or a hop-contained carbon-hydrogen bond or something?

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at BBW, this might be the darkest pale ale I have ever seen. A cloudy bronze colored body, thin white head, and aroma of some citrus fruits and sweet hops lead into a flavor that is very much the same. I thought this has a ton of flavor for its class, and the body was around medium with a clean, crisp bite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice amber color with a strong white head. A hoppy somewhat citrus aroma. The flavor has a sharp hoppiness to it, though not as strong as an IPA. There are hints of spice and fruit, perhaps leaning to an orange zest taste. I was hoping for even more hops, but this is still a crisp pale ale.
