2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear copper yellow with thin white head that dissipates. Aroma is lemon citrus with hops and cereal. Flavor is quite a bit of hops and bitterness. Body is light and carbonation is average. Nothing special about this pale ale....just another pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep golden brown with perhaps a tinge of copper. Thin, lingering, head. Hops don’t really come through in the aroma, but a citusy hop bitterness highlights the finish. Very good brew from a very good brewery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Screw-Top Bottle: Clear golden/yellow body with a smallish white head. It has a pretty subdued aroma, some sweet pale malt and light hop scents of grapefruit and pine. Nice and snappy mouthfeel. The flavor is sweet with pale malt, has a bit of toasted white bread, and a rather indistinct hop bitterness. The hops are more defined in the finish - pine, grapefruit, and flowers. Sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
The hops is underplayed. Malt standouts yet mercifully without chalkiness often associated with it. Session ale. If a hop head like me likes it has to have nice craft and flavor going for it.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one on draught at the brewery in Middleton, Wisconsin. Clear, medium golden pour with a wispy white head, light floral hoppy nose, nuanced bitterness but plenty of floral, piney hops. Strong but balanced finish. Great!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a transparent deep golden bronze with a thin, wispy white head. Aroma of fairly fresh, slightly resiny grapefruity hops with some mild sweet pale maltiness. Body starts semi-sweet with some grainy pale malty character balanced with some piny flavoring and bittering hops toward a semi-dry finish. Pretty drinkable, but not as assertive as some APAs.
