purchased in Quincy Ma pint bottle. pours a very clear orange/copper color with thick lasting head. slightly floural aroma. flavour has a mild sweetness, with some hoppy notes and bitter after taste. some carmal and maybe mild fruity flavours also noted.
smooth and decent beer but could be alittle stronger.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
22 oz. bottle purchased @ Top Shelf Brews, Hampton, NH. Hazy straw color and slightly over carbonated with a head that does not vanish. Nose is hints of pine and floral hops. The taste has a clean bitterness that lingers from the pine and floral notes. Dry crisp texture with a lighter body. It’s ok, no problems to speak of.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours straw colored with no head. Aroma is grass, flowers, soap and some tropical fruit. Taste is the same but really accents the floral/soapy notes. Palate is medium mouthfeel and good sharp carb. Unfortunately didn't enjoy this one too much.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Buttery, soapy malt aroma. Hazy orange color. Taste of sweet caramel and melon, mild metal bitterness. Good bite, scratchy but otherwise lighter body. Not the best of pale ales, seems closer to the English model.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz Bottle, poured at Real Ales for Hope - Providence, RI. Aroma had a nice rich citrus, pine, and mint character, still a little soft. Flavors were clean and bright. This is workable. Fresh, hoppy and balanced. I still want a lot more hop flavor out of my pale ale and a nip more drinkability, but the malts are well placed in this beer and the hops are getting there.
