3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is wet hops and wet grass. Caramel aura. Taste is rather malty for being a session brew, and it’s almost spicy in the aftertaste, I get some kind of nutty taste? Not the kind of stuff I was expecting but overall a decent brew.

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.

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.
