On tap at The Green Frog. Solid pale ale with tons of flavor; pushes into the IPA realm. Crisp and snappy texture. Juicy hops. Floral aromas. Moderate bitterness. Dry finish. Very sessionable and tasty.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Combo rating between me and my wife. So I would have a tick down. Nice amber hue with odd white head. Great lacing too. Nose is spicy hops and quite generous for a pale ale. Flapcor has an initial burst of hops but not heavy. Good balance of bready malt. Really nice for a standard pale.

Pours a strong golden. Sweet and aromatic with floral hops. Not the most bitter pale ale, but more bitter than the IBUs would lead one to believe.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Amber brown pour, rather dark for a pale ale. White foam on top. Quite bubbly, overall.Smells of biscuit, light toast, grass, earth, citrus. Tastes similar, more biscuit, toast, citrus, herbal and earthy qualities. Light bodied, but a bit heavier than I usually expect from a pale.
