3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Amber brew with small head that fades off fast. Lots of citrus aroma and the taste is also lots of citrus and hop bitterness. So much hop going on that itís practically an IPA. Got this in a sampler pack so probably not going to see it sold by itself in a 12 pack around here (Central TX). Too bad cause it is a good brew.

Clear Caramel color pour. Nice fluffy head. Aroma is very balanced with caramel makes and slight dank and citrus hop notes. Very balanced, very nice.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
22 oz bottle. BB 10/20/15. (Foodland) Kailua, HI.
Cloudy amber color with a small light tan head.
Very strong but not that pleasant hoppiness, citrus, pine and spices, dryness and malt in the aroma. The flavor is spicy, citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness, tea and dry maltiness. Not my kind of hop profile. Itís not super fresh either. Iím disappointed.

A tasty XPA. Lots of citrus, love the flavor. some Lemongrass kind of action going on. Look pretty too with its lillypad head settling in after the thick, stiff foamy head.

Its a good pale ale, but it is a little hoppy and slightly more bitter then I prefer I think that was their plan.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 11/22/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, melon, pepper, wood, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, mango, melon, pepper, wood, pine, honey, light caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, mango, melon, pepper, wood, pine, honey, toasted bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Fair amount of dryness after the finish from bitterness. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with zero warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent American pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/tropical/earthy hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from a sampler pack. Slightly hazy rich copper with a slightly off-white head. Rich bread crust and light grapefruit are present in the smell. There is also some floral character as well as almonds. Woody grapefruit and bits of toasted bread crust are present up front. The finish is like hay mixed a black pepper bite. A solid APA with the bite of a highly carbonated body. Clean and well made.
