3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light gold amber with an ample, lasting white head. Aroma is faintly yeast/biscuit and some hops. Flavor brings out more hops on a slightly malt backdrop. Nicely balanced. Palate is oddly light, the center is almost watery, surrounded by some quality ingredients... it?s not a watered down effect... just lighter. Overall, refreshing, balanced, lighter. UPDATE: Temperature makes a big difference. Straight out of the fridge, the cold supresses the good flavors. Warmer, the same flavors take more centerstage and the watery recedes. Suggests some finesse - a choice to subtle, in contrast to the more is better approach. Upgrade.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2015 Bottle from Schnucks. Aroma is mild malt and herbal hops and fairly indistinct. Appearance is beautiful clear orange brown with 1 finger-width head with good retention, minimal lacing but nice sparkle. Taste is more minimally sweet than minimal bitter, but balanced. Palate is light-to-medium bodied with average carbonation and mildly bitter over sweet finish. Overall, a nice beer that you can have more than one of.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from the bottle at the Riverside Craft Beer Factory Chiang Mai, Thailand. It was kept in cold storage and tastes fresh and hoppy, unlike many other venues in Asia. This is kind of a definitive APA with excellent balance. Much has been written on this one so I'll leave it at "drink it when you see it."

Do not know why 88 puts. This is a classic northwest pale. The litmus test. Great pine hop aroma as expected. Crystal clear light orange pout perfect carbonation to bring out hop aroma. Taste fresh hops of pine and citrus and great clean finish!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deeply orange gold with a small white head and no lacing. Aroma is hoppy with notes of grapefruit and an underlying malty sweetness. Taste is quite sweet, medium high, with a very mild bitterness in the background. Light body, clean finish with just a hint of bitterness lingering at the end. Overall, not as hoppy as expected and certainly more sweet than I thought it would be. It was a joy to drink and it goes down easy. The aroma and taste combo was just right.
