3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
650 ml bottle from the brewery. It’s cloudy and yellow, with nice lasting white head. Smells like caramel and grainy malt, hops, citrus. Taste is grainy malt, mild bitterness, could use some more hoppiness. I wouldn’t call it bright and juicy, but it does hit some citrus notes.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle courtesy of Chris, served in a a stem glass. Pours hazy golden-amber with a medium beige head that remains and leaves a small amount of fine lace. The nose has big grapefruit and citrus peel, along with pine, pale malts and subtle tropical fruit. The flavour is mildly sweet and moderately bitter with pale malt, fruit, lemon and huge grapefruit peel notes that build towards a long and moderately bitter finish. On the palate it is light-medium in body with a smooth watery texture and soft carbonation. Overall a nice session pale with big citrus peel. 2014-08-16

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at my uncle’s place. A nice mellow orange pour with a beige head of foam. A more complex hop aroma than their normal pale ale: resin, piney goodness. Classic rough sharp plate scraping carbonation. Medium bodied with a bitter hoppy taste, somewhat one-noted but good enough just not my cup of tea.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale golden pour with a thin white head. The nose is intensely fruity and hoppy. Bright berry and tropical fruit. Pineapple and light cherry along with a lean malt profile. Assertive bitterness (really in IPA territory) but with a lot of aromatics. A whiff of blueberry even pops up. Tasty brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
[Draught at Bar Hop] Pour’s a hazy copper-gold with a small diminishing white head. Mild but nice aroma is sweeter and fruitier then I expected, and not very hoppy. Some light fruity hops and bready malt. Flavour is quite fruity followed by bready malt, light floral notes and a finish that is surprisingly bitter, almost approaching harsh. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good but I expected better, maybe one to revisit.
