4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a very good pale ale for me. I don’t really like the style that much, but I always want to try new beers. This one was good. A good hoppy flavor, but not overpoweringly so. I suppose it tasted like a little bit watered-down version of many other pales. I liked it better than fans of this style will, that’s for sure.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very clear, light golden-amber. Tartness up front. Citric hop at first bite, then settles into a mild malt. Pretty good.

Gold amber. foamy white head. Slightly sour nose., metallic, musty. The flavor is also a little sour and leads into a great bitterness that is excentuated by the sourness. It isn’t over the top but definitely isnt lacking in hops. Quite a nice pale ale.

Aroma lets you know its a pale ale right away. Great hop presence. Goes down smooth with almost no aftertase.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Happy, near clear traffic light amber, healthy eggshell froth. Excellent lacing. Bright citric/floral hop bouquet… accents of mandarin orange and doughy malt. Flavor is like drinking flowers, dosed with hoppy sharpness, toast, nectarines, German riesling, musk, oak. Some residual sweetness. Creamy palate, extemely smooth... but maybe a little flabby, needs more dryness and carbonation to wake it up. Gentle, resiny aftertaste; hoppy but not bitter. A fine APA.

Thanks to Soonah! Pale amber of color with a weak white head. An aroma of pines, sweet citrus and wet wood. A flavor of warm citrus and hops. A very nice Pale Ale!

Had a 2 ounce glass of this draft as part of a 6 beer sampler at the brewery. This was my favorite of the 6, although the bitter was close. This is a hazy golden yellow, with a good white head and decent lacing. Aroma was perfumy, with a hint of citrus hops. Luckily, perfume did not come through on the flavor, which was mostly spicy citrus. This was a good tasting beer on a warm summer night.

Well, I liked this one a lot...especially drinking on tap at the brewery
across from Coor’s field I also liked the bottled version but it wasn’t nearly as
Now, it is a moot point as they’ve changed the formula and call it a pale ale. Dropped on
my like-o-meter a heck of a lot. :^(.
