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.

This is a not so hoppy APA. Great color, malty, with a hint of citrus aroma. Goes down smooth and crisp. If you're looking for hops, you probably won't like this. However, if you want an APA that is more of a drinkable beverage than an event, you'll like this.

Nothing remarkable or memorable. Clean going down. Metallic aftertaste. Not particularly hoppy.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can: DOB 2/22/16 so 2 weeks out of date.
A: Seemingly thick, syrupy pour with almost no head. Tawny dark and hazy orange.
S: Tangerine and faint honeysuckle.
T: Malty and sweet flavors of slight roast and toffee although piney hops are there to offer some balance. Very underwhelming and nondescript though this can is quite old.
M: Again, thick syrupy and flatly carbonated. Almost cloying finish.
O: This may be pretty good when fresh but this can has showed nothing to make me buy again.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Amber with white head. Aroma is pine, grapefruit and citrus. Taste is similar with strong pine and grapefruit notes with citrus and orange in the background and a nice caramel backbone. Medium mouthfeel, medium carbonation and bitter pine aftertaste.

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.
