3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is not as strong as I’d like with some funk and some citrus. Taste is extremely well balanced with bitterness, hop flavor and a restrained malt backbone. I just wish the hop selection was different.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Gushed over as soon as the cap came off - had been in the fridge for several days, so I have no idea why that would happen. Obviously huge pillowy head of tight white bubbles on top of a light yellow-amber color. Aroma is lightly toasty and piney hops. So easy to drink that I was almost done drinking it before I considered taking notes. Nothing exemplary, but certainly good enough to guzzle.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz bottle. Slightly hazy orange with a faint white head. I think I let this one sit a little too long as the hops are barely present, more slightly roasted malts, grainy and not much else. Moderate carbonation, mild body, slightly sweet, becomes a bit dry and a hint of bitterness on the finish. Need to try this fresher.

Sampled at GABF. Mild pale flavor. Caramel in the taste and body. Ok overall for an APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Clear amber body with a frothy, off-white head, slowly diminishing. Aroma of toasted grain, sweet caramel, floral hops, citrus, orange. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery/velvety texture, soft carbonation. A comfortable, easy-to-drink beer. Sweeter than the average APA, but enough bitterness to balance that. Taste of orange and citrus, hint of biscuit and grapefruit.

Not bad drinkable pale ale. Caramel malts detract from some decent hop chraracter with light citrus and cut grass. decent.
