12 oz bottle. It was ok. Thats about it. It has a mild hop flavor and not much to the finish. Pretty bland for an APA.

Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance – The brew is served a rather golden amber color with a nice two finger head of white foam. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is biggest of a pale malt smell with a good showing of a bready aroma. Along with these smells is a light fruity sweetness as well as a moderate showing of hops with both a pine and floral nature being there. Taste – The taste begins with a somewhat sweeter malt taste with some lightly toasted bready tastes as well as a light fruit sweetness of apricot and orange that were detected from the nose. As the taste advances the sweeter fruit gets replaced by a more caramel like sweetness with some hops coming to the tongue with a grapefruit and pine like nature being the heaviest. Further along to the end of the taste, a floral hop taste comes to the tongue as well as a bit of the sweeter fruit coming back to the taste to leave a rather pleasant, moderately hopped and slightly sweeter pale ale flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average as well. Both are nice for the more moderate blend of hop, malt and sweet and make for a very easy drinking feel overall. Overall – A quite easy drinking and enjoyable pale ale. Nothing crazy out of the ordinary, but rather tasty none the less.

Scipio (690) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Pours a darker, reddish amber with a medium, thicker looking, though quickly fading white head. A fresh aroma consists of grassy hops, light pine, caramel, orange, and honey. The taste is dry, a bit sweet, and with some slight bitterness. The main impressions are a combination of grass and pine. Some candyish flavors and, apple, and hints of grapefruit are found as well. Medium in body, slick textured, and with above average carbonation. I find this refreshing to drink. Pretty solid effort here.

Pailhead (4755) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 13, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of orange, lemon grass, florals, and a touch of pine. It’s a transparent golden-orange with a two finger white head that eventually fades to a thin film. There a a thin sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with citrus, fruit, and caramel. The finish has light floral notes with a hint of pine. It’s light-medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.
