3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From notes. 12oz can from Old Chicago poured into a shaker. Pours a crystal clear, light orange color. Not much head but what is there is bright white. Aroma is all hops. Spruce and resin. Taste is medium bitter. It sort of tastes the way pine needles smell. Medium bodied with a distinctly oily texture. Overall, this one is pretty good. I would buy it again if I ever found it locally.

Bottle. Pours a clear orange color with a white fizzy head. Aroma is sweet sugar, easy floral hops and light malts. Flavor is dry, peanutty, light earthy hops, and malts. Not very hoppy but pretty flavorful.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours an amber gold with a thin but lasting crown of off white foam. Nose is hops. Nice and creamy on the palate, the taste is malt on the front end with mostly hops on the finish, not overly bitter. A well brewed pale ale that accompanies smoked turkey or smoke salmon very well.

presents well poured in a shaker with a decent white head. Not much aroma to this puppy. The hoppy taste really is refreshing and has earthly feel on the palate a good beer.

Can. Pours a light pale golden with a small white head. Aroma...smells like it’s a bit older. Sweet and caramely with every little hops presence, and what is there is a touch piney and very dumbed down to the sweet candy. Flavor is a touch hoppier but only in the lightly bitter finish. Still mostly malty candy caramel and toffee. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Bleh, this isn’t tasting great

12 oz can. Pours a hazy a hazy gold with with medium white head. Aromas of citrus and tea; flavor is the same. Not bad for the price.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer had the makings of a pale ale, but I was a little disappointed with the overall taste. It is missing something.

Poured a nice gold with a light fruity aroma. Taste was of malt and citrus with a mid to strong hop finish. Not a bad pale ale - actually very decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewery - Deep amber pour with a big white foamy head. Flowery and lightly tropical fruity hops on the nose, with light, caramel malt in the background. Tastes sweet and fruity, with light lemon and a bit of grassy hops on the finish. A bit flat, however. Medium-bodied and slick in the mouth. Smelled good, but nothing out of the ordinary.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
probably the lightest most sessionable apa I ever had. light pine hops and light malt in both the aroma and flavor. flavor is a littile stronger in the aroma but kind of a watery body.
