2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2014 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, 2014 release.
Aroma: very little aroma, hints of resin and citrus.
Appearance: almost clear, dark amber with small off-white head and little lacing.
Taste: citrus, earthy tones, grass.
Palate: smooth, little carbonation with a long bitter finish.
Overall: IMO, too hoppy for an APA. Tastes more like an IPA to me. Wouldn’t buy again.

Been going down the list of Blue Mountain when i see them and the pale ale was rather normal. Good and easy drinking but nothing that i would stock as a go to APA.

Pours an appetizing clear amber with a thick pale buff head. Malty aroma has a nice hoppy tone and a hint of grapefruit. Flavor is hoppier and has more grapefruit, sour and bitter and satisfying. Firm texture has lively fizz and a nice hoppy finish. Grab one.

Pours a golden orange color with aroma of grapefruit, pine, and resin. Heavy hop flavor with sharp hop bite at the end with orange, pine, and grapefruit. Very nice.

Tap at the hotel bar I stayed at in Richmond, VA
pours clear dark orange with a small white head and sparse lacing. Big herbal nose with some lite resin. Flavors of grapefruit big nice grapefruit and an earthy herbal quality. This is very solid! I had this in the bottle and it was awful not even rateable. Long p iney finish with lingering grapefruit and herbal qualities. Body is crisp with moderate carbonation. Very solid pale ale!

A better than average pale ale. A little creamier than I usually prefer, but with a great balance of bready malts and some floral hops.

Draft at Beer and Bacon. Pours almost clear with bubbly off white head. Tastes like dry hops, astringent citrus, very light sweetness. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like musky grains with light citrus.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a can this stuff looks viscous because of the head. Yes, nice fine foamy head goes rocky. Smells bready hop flowers. Quite strong, must be near 7%. Borders on the bitterness of an IPA, wew. So, if you like IPA ignore my numbers and try this one big dull kick in the jaw. Finish is long bitter medicine.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a can at the Thorton River Grille, Sperryville, VA. Dark gold body with clean white head with staying power. Malt with slight sharp fruity tones. Bitter after test that was initially surprising but balances the initial malt favor well.
