A decent pale ale but with a somewhat soapy bitterness in the finish. Pretty though with a long lasting head.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Faint amonia, dishwater aroma. Gold color with no visible carbonation. A ring of white head around edge of glass. Nice, cascade sheet lace. Not much head retention. There’s a definite bitterness; well balanced. A little dry. I would drink this again.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer pours an amber body, and just like the description says, it has a very sharp bitterness, that is a little unbalanced in my opinion. Hops are quick to give way to very smooth caramel undertones and biscuit malts. Aroma is pleasent, floral and soft pine.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. Pours a lightly cloudy, burnt orange with a half finger of white head. Aroma of crisp citrus and tropical fruits. Taste is medium bitter. Pine and citrus with a good dose of grapefruit. Medium bodied with a somewhat slick texture. Lively carbonation and a very very long finish. Overall, pretty darn good. I’ll be happy to drink this again, but I want to try it a little fresher.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pretty good beer. Poured a nice foamy head and lots of lace. Hazy light amber color. Light hop aroma with lots of toffee, malty character. Fine carbonatioin. Mouth filling. Flavor is same as nose and more fulfilling. Great session beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a golden amber with a decent head but gone quickly. I might be the minority, but I thought it had a flowery hop aroma. Sweet malt up front, smooth middle and a pretty good hop bite at the end. Pretty nice lacing. Shouls be a great summer beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Pours golden with a nice white head. A good balance of hops in the flavor. Some light citrus as well, especially in the aftertaste. Light mouthfeel, but not watered down or anything. Aroma is kinda lacking, but otherwise I really liked this one.
