4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into an imperial pint (tulip glass is dirty and I’m feeling lazy). I’ve had this a couple dozen times but never rated it. Pours a nice copper orange color with a small off white head that dissipates reasonable quick. Smells floral, citrus (orange) and light pine with a soft caramel sweetness in the background. Light bread aromas as well. Tastes of sweet malt, soft biscuit and generally balanced malt. Hops are peppery, floral, and piney. Slight citrus in the back but not much. Bitterness is on the outsides of the tongue. Mouthfeel is medium to full bodied and very smooth with medium to high carbonation. Great beer, eminently drinkable. I’ve sessioned this one multiple times.

A classic craft beer. It is lightly hopped compared to many of the newer pales on the market, yet still flavorful. A great beer to bring to a BBQ.

Haven't had this for awhile and coming back to it has lost a bit of its luster. Still good but may suffer a bit from the hop dominated trend at the moment since it doesn't have a very evident bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle) Lightly hazy copper body with a medium beige-cream head. Aroma of pale malt, grain, hint of sweet citrus fruit. Very smooth mouthfeel, some soft carbonation. Mild hop bitterness, malty caramel flavor, dry but leaves a hint of a sweet aftertaste. Nothing stands out too much in the flavor but it’s smooth and drinkable.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A great beer for those that are allured by the hop side of the craft spectrum. THe aroma opens a boquet of slightly sweet and fresh floral dominance with a bit of an earthy tone. The color is a prestine reddish-orange. The mouthfeel is medium in body and exceptionally smooth. The floavor lends a clean malt bill that comes off only slightly sweet, moderately bready and finishes with a pleasantly smooth and hop bittering that does not impart too dryly on the palate.

Alla spina. Biondo chiaro con fragile schiuma bianca. Amarognola e dissetante, un pelo erbacea, corpo medio-lieve. Fresca e buona, ma mi ha deluso un po’.

Had this several times but finally rating it Light hop aromas of rose and citrus. Body is light caramel, bread, and a mild hop bitterness. Nothing spectacular. Just a solid beer.
