3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a hazy golden-amber color with a large fluffy yellow-white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was tangy, dryish, spicy, peppery, piney and a bit fruity. The flavor was tangy, dryish, spicy, dusty and had touches of orange, pine and floral hops. Medium length dryish spicy and dusty orange finish. Ok.

Incredibly watered down, hoppy aftertaste, jot to pleasant. Not a lot of body, but I guess a pale ale is,the,lightest ale you can make that still has some hop to it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is fruity, with some tropical fruits and citrus hops. Some floral notes as well. Taste is nice bitter tropical fruits with some grapefruit rind. Floral hops near the finish with some sweet malts. Light mouthfeel. Nicely drinkable with a good amount of hops. Overall, solid lighter IPA that works well for the summer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft. Pours orange with a white head. Fruity and citric hoppy nose. The flavor brings some odd earthy and fruity hops, grainy pale malts, and a grainy and medium bitter finish. Really odd hops, here. I think they would this hop would work better in something more rustic, like a saison, as opposed to an IPA or Pale Ale or anything like that.

Tap @ Capital Ale D shared with Hop Tsing. First impression is good with some grapefruit and fruit. First sip was pretty hoppy, but then it faded away into a grainy flavor.

Cloudy gole color. Thin white head. Funky aroma. Could be the taps. Thin body indicative of the 4.5% but the flavor is full and like.rotting fruity with funky mosaic. Its go to be bad tap lines.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at the fed. Hazy golden orange pour with a thin white slightly sticky lace. Nose is green hops, a tad sharp at times, light herbal and lemon notes. Flavor is similar, green and herbal hop notes upfront, finishes lightly bitter and spritzy. Solid beer.

My favorite at the Blue Palms 5th Anniversary. Amazing flavor and only 4.5%. Huge floral aroma and taste. A bit of a citrus background rounds out the flavor. Sharp and bright tasting as well. My last beer of the day and it still punched through the previous 8 beers with its flavor.
