This poured a hazy golden color with a white head. Aroma was of fresh cut grassy, oranges, light peach, and overippened apple skin. Flavor was similar, the fruity character of the hops really blended will with the earthy sweetness of the apple must. Nice.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Bru, pours somewhat clearish golden with small to medium white head, not much lacing. Aromas of crisp hops, red apple skins, and clean malt. Flavor was most of the same with a pleasant balance of hops and apple notes. Lighter to medium body. Good but I wish they would make dank IPAs and cider separate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Pour a slightly hazy gold with a small foamy white head. The nose is really interesting, some bready malt with a backdrop of apple cider and some light floral hops. The flavor is really heavy on the apple skins, but not lots of apple juice like notes. Solid Blond Ale base, enough citrusy hop bitterness to keep the sweetness in check. Lighter bodied, very easy drinking, soft fizzy carbonation. Good attempt at a fruit beer.

Really enjoyed drinking this one. The abv at the brewery said 6.5 and i could tell after three pints. The apple notes were not overpowering like other apple ales i have tried. Very goole ale will be back for more!

4.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at brewpub. Pours golden with an inch of white foam that doesn’t leave much lacing. Massive floral hop notes on the nose. They must have dry hopped the shit out if this one. Lots of leafy and floral notes on the tongue. Finishes clean and tight. I didn’t get much apple on this one but who gives a shit about that. This is one of the best pale ales I’ve ever had.

Thoroughly impressed with the amount of flavor packed into this beer. Hoppy, with enough apple to come through in the taste. Very enjoyable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of floral, citrusy hops, also some light grains and a touch of apple. Light golden color, white head, average retention. Hop flavors dominate the flavor profile - lots of citrus and some resin, medium bitterness. Some light malts, apple character is fairly subtle. Light body, medium carbonation. Nice brew - not a lot of apple, but still a nice APA.
