3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was the 2nd brand of dry hopped pale ale that I tried, the first being the dry-hopped red ale by Rogue. This is a thinner color, slightly amber with a hint of red/orange. It is pretty hoppy, but not as heavy as some other dry hopped or super hoppy beers I tried. There is a good balance of sweetness from the malts and a good piney taste. I will buy again I’m sure, but keep passing it up for something new. Another good brew by Boulder Brewing Co. I am "hopping" on the bandwagon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours an orangish amber color with off-white head. Light pine, citrus, and some malt on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a nice balance between the resinous hop flavors and the malts.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
"I only came here to do two things: kick some ass and drink some beer ... Looks like we’re almost outta beer." Pours a light brown/deep dark orange in color, with a lot of fluffy white head that leaves some decent lacing. The smell benefits from the dry-hopping, with floral hops, a bit of fruity sweetness and a very light malt character. The taste follows suit: citrusy grapefruit and pine with a lot of hops and very little bitterness. Mouthfeel is bubbly and full, not unlike drinking a soda. Light, fruity, crisp, drinkable. This would make an excellent session beer.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can at home. Pours a slightly hazy Amber with two fingers of head. Aroma is really nice. Citrus and some pine. Great aroma. Really falls flat on the flavor. The can was about 1 month from when I bought it and so I assume it was fresh. But really no flavor drinkable beer.

Can at Örebro Ölcafé. Fruity smell with a slight metallic touch. Similar taste. The hops is aged but the base beer is very drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A bit nutty with strong hop flavor. This would be a really good session beer, being 5.0 abv.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a bottle with a enjoy by date of 2/19/2015 (about a month to go)
Aroma - not a huge amount of aroma, but it is an APA, not an IPA
Appearance - Hazy reddish/orangish color. Not a lot of head
Taste - crisp, plenty of carbonation - enjoyable.
Palate - not a lot of lingering body feel, however the abv is less than 5%, so my expectations might have been too high originally
Overall - Not too bad...it shouldn’t be taken after consuming a very hoppy beer - it could ruin this beer.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from the bottle. Golden color with creamy, thick head. Hazy as advertised. Nose faded quickly but had citrus and pine notes. High carbonation level pushes light floral and citrus flavors. Little to no bitterness.
