3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
18 oz at C.B. Potts Highlands Ranch. Cloudy orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is musty, earthy with small hoppy citrus notes. Very stock pale ale with no frills whatsoever. The flavor has grassy bitterness, light citrus bite and a continuous earthiness. It’s on the waterier side of the style. Not offensive.

Hazy pale straw color. Aroma is faint...grapefruit. Taste is orange peel and a little sweet. Not my favorite style and this isn’t a great example, but it’ll do.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It’s an unclear one, orange colored, and topped by a minimal sized off-white head. The aroma has green pine cones, orange peel and a generic fruityness. Medium bodied and quite dry on the palate, with a nice carbonation. Pine cones and orange peel dominates the flavor, with some maltyness kicking in. Nice bitterness all the way. Lasting finish. A tasteful and pleasant pale ale meant to be drunk by numbers I guess. 130629

Ckearoght gold, thin white lacing. No aroma. Malted cereal flavor on a bitter palate that is full bodied, but leaves a wierd, bitter cereal finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg location. Hazy brass color. A thin head with a bit of lace. Somewhat hoppy nose mitigated by the soap in the restroom on my hands. A nice, big hoppy burst on the first sip. The hop bill seems aimed more toward bitterness than flavor, then there’s a slight bit of citrus, pine and grass.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft. From notes. This beer is pretty weak and watery. Some light hops throughout with a weak malt backbone. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is hazy orangish with a frothy white head and great lacing. Hoppy, spicy, biscuity, bready aroma. Taste is earthy, grassy, somewhat caramelly, bready, and citrusy with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not a bad APA.
