3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can into a pint glass.
A: Pours a hazy copper color. Thereís a nice three finger pale yellow head here, however it doesnít retain itself that well. Lacing, on the other hand, is good.
S: Pretty typical of the style: grapefruit, pine resin, and floral notes come from the hops, while there are touches of biscuity malt. Key word being ítouchesí - this isnít over-malted, thankfully.
T: This one is pretty floral in terms of hoppiness. Only a touch of citrusy character comes through near the back end, along side a minor surge of caramel maltiness. Iíd reckon the general bitterness is moderate; thereís just enough malt here to balance out any annoying harshness without coming off excessively sugary.
M: The feel has a decent crispness to it, but is perhaps a touch too astringent finishing. Still, I canít complain about its drinkability or carbonation levels.
O: A well made, easy drinking pale, just one that isnít particularly remarkable or exciting. To be fair, though, floral, piny pale ales donít really excite me in the first place. Worth a try.

Great amber brown appearance with solid head. Aroma of sweet, citrus hops with a bit of malt. Nice. Taste is like a subdued IPA, with a little bit of smokiness. Very smooth, creamy. Good one.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours copper orange with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, bready malts, grass, and some light sweet malts. Taste is pretty similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a pretty nice, easy drinking, well balanced APA.
