Poured golden with a small head. Aroma was mainly piney hops. Flavor was pine and perhaps some light citrus. A touch bitter. A bit watery. Eh.

Bottle . A clear pale golden color pour with a small white head that quickly fades, medium carbonation . Aroma is light floral hops and a hint of citrus . Flavor is much the same as the aroma , a little malt up front with a citrusy hop profile, lightly yeasty , well balanced for a APA but lite on the bittreness . Light body with a clean , but slightly oily mouthfeel . A slightly hoppy peppery finish . Quite sessionable and a pretty good try .

Nice introduction to hops for a macro drinker. Easy drinking session ale, the firm cascadeyness scrubs away any sense of maltiness pretty quickly though.

Light amber in color with a thin head. Aroma is a nice blend of pine & malts - maybe a little yeast too. Taste is a combination of citrus-like hops and a strong roasted malt flavor. I know I’m being vague, but it’s hard to pinpoint exact flavors. Up front, you’re hit with the hops and that super rich "maltiness". The light bitterness slides in at the finish - it’s almost sneaky. Not bad, but a little monotone for me.

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.

Amber Color, Big Bubbly Head, Lots Of Lacing. Very Light Pine Scent. Thin and watery with hoppy finish. Refreshing and good thirst quencher. Decent overall.

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.

Bottle - poured golden color with medium white head. Aroma - cereal, grains and yeasty. Taste - clean refreshing fresh grains and alittle grassy. Palate - thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Finish is mildly bitter and has grassy aftertaste. Overall an ok PA. Very light and extremely drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice golden color with a medium off white head and very good carbonation. Aroma and taste both have a nice hop to malt balance. Seems a little tame for a pale ale but still remains rich and flavorful.
