3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Courtesy of jcwattsrugger. Pours clear deep gold with micro thin white head. The aroma is mild with notes of fresh grains, some malts, a touch of earthiness and little else. The taste is earthy and grapefruit like and at the same it also has a mineral and fresh outdoor sensation. Interesting indeed. Into the finish I get a modest level of grapefruit hoppiness lingering into the after taste.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at The Crunkleton. Pours a pale translucent yellow with a thin white head. The nose is grassy, some hop aroma, corn, sweet malt. The flavor is more on the malt side, grassy astringent hops, corny, seems like some hop flavor tries to come through but fails miserably.

Clear pale amber pour. Hoppy nose combined with a slight bit of sulfur. Piney hops and sweet malts. I must say its extremely hard drinking this after a Alpha King

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught. Golden/orange in color with a medium white head. Aroma is mostly hops, and very slight malt. Flavor is hoppy pine, and not much else. There is some malt, but this beer is kind of light, but the Chinook hops are kind of interesting. Decent for a pale ale.
