3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a light, slightly amber gold color. Thick citrus aroma gives a hint of the definite grapefruit flavors. Spicy, not a particularly strong hops flavor. Slightly bitter, less than other American Pale Ales. A bit oily on the palate. All in all a delicious beer that I would come back to.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours hazy amber with white head. Aroma is very malty, mostly caramel. Very nice caramel malt character. Little bit of citrus and pine from the hops. Nice well balanced refreshing pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured at home from 12oz can. Golden clear color, white head. Musty lager aroma. No hops or bitterness. Taste has a hint of honey and fruit. Overall a pretty pedestrian pale ale, but it is pretty easy drinking on the bright side.

"i agree with phishpond’s "weak on the hops" assertation. maybe i got an off batch, but this was one boring ass beer. my notes on this one say beer flavored water. not exactly what i look for in an apa."

Medium copper, translucent pour with a small head that leaves a bit of lace. Aroma is fairly mild with a bit of citrus and straw. Flavor follows suit. Medium body with slightly sticky mouthfeel.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a decent hazy orange looking color with a slight transparency about it that allowed a fair carbonation to be seen rising.
There was less than a finger’s worth of head.
The smell was based around some light sweet pine with just a tad of light sweet caramel malt.
The taste was mainly sweet around the piney hops and sweet caramel malts.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. There’s nothing off and there’s nothing spectacular about it.
Overall, an everyday APA worthy of having again and would probably be a pretty good pizza beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
bottle, very old notes - Pours light copper-amber with a quickly fading one finger head. It has a mild hoppy aroma. The flavor is sweet malt with a little caramel and perhaps a touch of citrus. It’s bland and not very crisp. Mediocre to average beer.
