2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale light gold color with a mild hop aroma. Medium hop flavor, but still light even for an APA. Nothing special, but very drinkable and crisp bubbly carbonation. Didn’t get a lot of interesting flavors out of this one.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
20 oct 07, draft at BD Cafe & Casino, LV. Clear, light amber colored. Sweet malt flavors and heavenly hop florals. Flavor is of a nice malt body backed up by a big hop bitterness. I’ve had IPAs that were not as bitter as this APA. Very Good.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Growler. Light amber color, thick white head that diminishes to a thin layer. Good lacing. Aromas of fruity hops and earthy malts. Taste seems mostly malty to me, some fruitiness and just a hint of bittnerness. Slight bitterness lingers but finish is nothing to remember. Fairly light and should be easy to finish the growler.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2008 2008-09-08, draught at the brewpub in Rancho Drive, 6-3-6-3-12=30
Golden color. The body is quite weak, both aroma and flavor have a earthy character (manure), reasonable IPA bitterness. Maybe I’m getting more exigent.
2006-03-27, draught at the brewpub, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Light amber color; creamy head; nice lace. Good fruity aromatic hops; the taste is also quite malty. Just the bitterness in the middle is not very strong.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Little aroma, standard look. A pale ale in every way. It’s the right amount of hops but does it without being very heavy. One I could drink quite frequently.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draught. Tasted during trip to California. Clear golden colour with a fast disappearing head. Little aroma of fruit and spice. Very great taste of malt and a good blend of hops. Also a great fresh aftertaste.

this is a standard pale ale which is pretty good. some citrus pine characteristics that are subtle but not in your face. balanced quite well with the malt back bone. not hopped as much as i probably like.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice hoppy aroma. Light to medium orange in color, decent head. The hop flavor predominates, but it has enough maltiness to make it pretty balanced. A good American Pale Ale.
