3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft - Clear gold, thin white creamy head. Soft fresh pine and grapefruit aromas ride undertones of sweet malt throughout. Earthed pine and citric hop flavors balance well on a light caramel backbone. Light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, dry bitter finish. A well constructed pale ale...

Great APA, very crisp & smooth & drinkable, amber to light copper in color, good white head, nice lacing around the glass, lots of hops in the nose, very well balanced, had a nice malt character to balance out the hops in the flavors, medium in body, slightly dry finish, spicy aftertaste

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!

3.7 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.

I thought this was a nice pale ale. had a nice surprising hop presence to it, the amarillo seem to give it a good light citrus element. nice body, good overall.

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.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
The beer is full of beautiful malty caramel aromas, toasty, full of excellently balanced floral hops. The appearance is an orange amber color, slight off clear haze, with an appropriate light white head. The taste is full of excellent malt bodies exceptionally balanced with floral hops. The bitterness is light and a savory umami is here. A true tasting enjoyment. The feel is super smooth. The body is light to medium, with a creamy texture. The finish is long and silky smooth. The beer is very soft and warming, a true pale ale champion.

On cask for charity night at the Brew Works. A nice sparkling pale ale with a small head. A little bit cloudy from cask, served at cellar temp. Exceptionally smooth creamy palate. Refreshing hoppy character from this amazingly fresh cask beer. Excellent, I had two!

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!
