Slightly hazy amber with medium white head that leaves a little lace. Not very heavy on the hops for a pale ale. Pretty good, though.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A- Citrus, hops.
A- Burnt orange color, hazy liquid, white head.
T- Bitter, citrus, grapefruit, piney.
P- Medium body, crisp texture, average carbonation, bitter finish.
O- A standard pale ale. Balanced well and the bitterness is at the forefront but the citrus, especially the grapefruit mellow it out nicely. Not a huge fan of APA’s but this is a good one.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Oh man this is amazing. Very fresh aroma of pine and citrus. I was worried it was going to be overwhelmingly pine flavored like Lagunitas Sucks but was very pleasantly surprised that it?s subtle and very well balanced. Great blend of pine, grapefruit, orange, tangerine, citrus, wood, and hops flavors. This was the first $10+ bottle of 2014 I can think of and not regret the price tag at all.

Pretty standard Pale Ale. Heavier on the malt than Sierra Nevada, but less hoppy. Drinkable, but not memorable.

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear bourbon color with a 3" head that slowly drops to a thin cover, curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt with a nutty light toast appearing in the palate. Hops enter early, but not like a hammer blow, and remain through a nicely balanced finish. At 5% abv, this can be anyone’s go-to brew; well-conceived, well-delivered. Recommended.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma: Light/moderate spruce and orange peel with light cereal malt presence. Appearance: Copper hazy body with an off white head that settles into a creamy crown. Flavor: Spruce up front with cereal malts in tow; orange peel endures through to the finish. Palate: Light body, sticky texture, very soft carbonation, abrupt finish. Overall: Just a really well done basic pale ale; a good introduction to APAs for the novice.

Draught@Lucky's, Hollywood. Amber color, lasting white head. Full, malty flavor with spicy hops (ginger). Not bad.

3.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nice clear amber with orange tones, small frothy off-white head -- very little carbonation. The Cascade hops are evident in the aroma and the flavor, with a tingly bitterness in the aftertaste. The mouthfeel is somewhat syrupy, which makes the brew ’feel’ sweet even though it isn’t sweet at all. Very drinkable -- a nice pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Soft aroma with green wood, fresh orange. hops more expressive in the flavor--pine & resin. thicker on the tongue than I’d expected-- seemed lighter on tap. Been around this beer a long time, but never reviewed..
