3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had this beer on 6/17/2000. Aroma is a nice hoppy scent. Color is a clear golden brown with good carbonation and head. Taste is refreshingly hoppy. Starting with a light body it goes down with a crisp maltyness. The finish is a nice pale malt flavor backed by a very good hop flavor and nice bitterness. Very well balanced, refreshing and perfectly hoppy.

Had this beer a few years ago at a friends wedding in Vermont. He had worked a seasonal job at the brewery. I loved this local favorite! I brought some back to Ohio with me.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I am reviewing this entirely on memory. Catamount Pale Ale was the first micro brew I ever tasted back in 1985 or 1986 when the Vermont brewery first opened. I was a reporter at a local radio station covering their grand opening for a news story (great gig eh?). Up until that point I was drinking mostly the Canadian stuff with occasional orders of European ales. Catamount introduced me to the world of real beer and for that I am forever grateful. I remember this having a great aroma, an attractive look, and a great taste. I wish they were still around.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A clear amber color, below a fine snow-white head. Nose is fresh and fruity, wafting out suggestions of peach, citrus, apricot, cherries, hell, everything nice under the sun! Plus a whiff a sea-foam. Palate takes a great hit of hops, but becomes mellow and smooth thereafter. Wow, this is awfully tasty, as delicious as all the get-out on God’s Green Earth! Medium body, nice texture, delicious finish. Singularly hoppy and palate pleasing, this is a very well-produced and satisfying pale ale

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
(Bottle) Amber/orange in color with a white head. Some hop aroma and flavor, but not nearly enough for my tastes. Not my favorite IPA. No longer produced by Harpoon/Catamount.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This one poured gold/orangish, with aroma of hops, citrus, and spiciness. Tastes fairly well balanced, with hops, citrus, honey, and some black pepper at the finish.

I had this beer many years ago at one time when I was too lazy and stupid to write my thoughts. I will update this as soon as I get my hands on this beer again.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Comprised mostly of sweet light malts, light peppery hops and a dash of toffee around the edges. This light golden brew seemed to be closer to lager than pale ale.
