3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper colour with a white head. Aroma of light floral hops, tangy citrus, carmelized sugar, and bitter hops (Thanks Adrian for helping me with the aroma). Taste is the same as the aroma with floral hops dominating the palate over the other flavours.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap, at brewery. Pours a nice clear copper body with a creamy beige head that left lots of heavy lacing. Nice leafy citric hops and slightly grainy maltiness on the nose. Really well balanced toasted and lightly caramel malts with the moderately bitter citrusy and piney hops. Nice clean hoppy finish. Medium bodied with nice soft carbonation, some lingering leafy hops. A solid APA for sure. Disappointing beers are getting very hard to come by at Bullfrog these days, keep up the great work!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the brewpub. Fresh grassy hop aroma. Very nice smell, with light sweet biscuit and a bit of turbinado sugar. Mainly a super hoppy aroma. Golden amber clear with thin off-white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with carbonic acidity and beany hops. Light malt sweetness. Bit hops profile, fresh, and tart, grainy, and puckering. Still subtle compared to Edgar but a very tasty ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear amber color with a small head. Aroma is grainy with some grapey fruit character. Flavor is slightly roasty and bitter, but not that complex or interesting. Medium bodied. The bitter doesn’t really hit at all until the finish. It is very drinkable, and a decent pale ale, but not one of Bullfrog’s better beers.
