3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours copper orange with a thin white head. Aroma is floral with a little citrus. Rather bitter flavor, hoppy but with an astringent metallic flavor. High carbonation, light body and a long lasting bitterness on the palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark brass color, good head and persistent lace. Light carbonated wheat and sweet bread, moves to a light clean hop finish. Very balanced and VERY drinkable. Worth a taste.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle from Whole Foods Columbus/Dublin. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of big floral and citrus hops with some spiciness. The taste is citrus and spicy hop notes, caramel malts and a tart finish. Medium bodied. Decent, but a little off balance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours orange with a half of inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing on the side of the glass. Resiny piney aroma on the nose. Big hop flavor without much bitterness. Clean finisher. One of the better pale ales Iíve had so far.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The beer is light clear brown with a small head, no great retention or lacing.
The aroma is hops with light flowers.
The taste is good, nothing great. Its highly drinkable with a solid mouthfeel. You mostly get hops throughout which is solid, just nothing complex and alluring to make you want to order another one.

On tap at Columbus Brewing Co on 12 March 2010. Ginger colour. Not much head. Fairly standard APA. Fair amount of perfumed hops on the nose. Clean enough. Rather soft mouthfeel. Pleasant drinking without generating too much excitement.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle thanks to Ryan011235 on BA. Just realized that guyís name ends with the start of Fibonacci sequence. Crazy shit. Man, Iím a nerd, but Iím also leading the league in ticking, so I think itís a wash. On to this latest tick...
Beautiful beer, this is. The color is clear golden-copper and a two-finger white head sits on top and lasts. The aroma is not too intense. Citrusy hops, slight spice, and sweet malt. The flavor is also rather subtle, but good. Orange is the predominant hop note, and pale and caramel malts are evident. Pretty much ideal level of sweetness. Not too hop-forward, but I like it nonetheless. Somewhat dry on the mouthfeel with medium body for the style and a great smoothness to it. Drinkability is way up there for this one. Count the tick, and a good one at that.
