solid effort at an APA, equal too, or perhaps surpassing mirror pond, depending on the mood. MP strikes me as a slightly more english leaning pa (although a little too hoppy to be classified as such). this one is slightly more unabashadly hoppy, a little paler, and a little cleanre. tasty brew."

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a medium amber-orange with a short white head and lacing. It has a mild aroma of amber malt and pine, and a flavor that is hops and malt up front with a malty backbone and slightly sweet finish over a medium body.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle-Pours dark orange slightly cloudy chill haze hue with a nice fluffy soapy off-white head and sparse lacing. Nose is herbal tea-some lite citrus but mostly herbal hops here. nothing special. flavors follow suit with quite a bit of floral herbal hop presence-again nothing special. subtle session pale ale here if anything else. Fair for what it is.

Bomber. Clear medium orange copper, off-white foam settles and mostly lasts. Fruity citrus hop aroma, slightly floral. Fruity orange citrus hop taste, mildly sweet pale malts, some floral herbal notes, clean and lightly bitter. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Very nice.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
I had a pint of this on a nitro draft at Funck’s near Hershey. This is a fantastic APA! The pour was light golden with a huge, soft and pillowy white head. The head left a huge amount of lacing around the glass. The nose was quite hoppy with some bready notes. The body was soft, velvety smooth and extremely drinkable. The flavors contained plenty of delicious, floral and resiny hops, along with some citrus, wheat and bread. This was an incredibly awesome APA!

Nice aromas and flavors of sweet fruit, mostly citrus. Not as bitter as many other pale ales but definitely sweeter. Body was a bit thin. A very good pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Un pale ale très malté. Pas trop amer. Facile à boire et très agréable mais rien de trop spéciale. Très bien équilibré. Couleur du cuivre avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme est du malt et agrumes mais c’est un peu sourdine.
