3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft... Clear golden ale with a small, fizzy, white head. Grapefruit and evergreen notes constitute the aroma along with subtleties of English toffee and spent mash. The flavor leans just a touch on the sweet side, but decent balance is pulled off with the assistance of a measured helping of moderately bitter, wet and dry hops. Light to medium-bodied with lively carbonation. Coarse, mildly bitter finish. This brew screams of an English IPA infused with American hops!

Gold in color. Aroma is lacking but the little it has is hops with a small hint of citrus. Taste is hops. Not bad

Draft at brewpub. Poured a hazy copper with an average frothy white head that did not diminish and produced good lacing. Medium sweet hoppy aroma. Medium body. Solid balanced hoppy flavor with a medium bitter finish of moderate duration.

Sampler--Once again for Charlie and Jake’s, there wasn’t any aroma to be found. What is it with their beers and aroma? It had quite a bit of carbonation. An ok APA.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
No aroma to speak of. Gold in color. Heavy visible carbonation. White, whispy head and great lace. Creamy mouthfeel; not overly hoppy like the description says it is. Now, it's possible the waitress accidentally switched the samples with the Patrick Pilsener on the sampler sheet, as that one was easily the hoppiest brew of the 7 I tried.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Charlie and Jakes in Melbourne, FL. This beer had a small sized white that was creamy and smooth with fine sized bubbles that mostly dissipated. The body had a lot of lively carbonation and it was cloudy with a yellow hue. The nose was moderately and of citrus with a hoppy flavor. The mouthfeel was smooth. This was a medium bodied beer with good lacing.

TheDM and Hotstuff vacation brew 67. This draft brew was sampled at the brewery in Melbourne Florida. This brew poured a small head of finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a softly carbonated light yellow orange colored body. It had a hoppy aroma and a tingly mouthfeel that smoothen in the finish. The flavor was all hops.
