3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a solid American Pale Ale, being rather light but still characterful and fairly well balanced. Slightly reddish deep gold, it has a medium, pale tan head that shirnks steadily to a foamy lasting ring and wisps. It has a hint of lace. Aroma’s light toasty grain, citrus, leaves, dust, and hay. It tastes similar, with lightly toasty grain with hint of caramelized bread, faintly burnt grapefruit and orange peel, green leaves. It has light sweetness balanced with light bitterness. It’s a bit too strong on the grapefruity-citrusy hops, making it seem slightly one-dimensional and mundane, but still has some complexity and balance underneath.

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.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This pale ale is so smooth. The hops are noticeable but not overpowering. The hops are low in the citrus flavor and all at the front end. On the back end is a touch of sweetness and delicious.
