Poured a deep amber with an eggshell white head. Definitely pulled back on the hops and more defined malt.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark copper. Thin, almost non-existent head. Mild lacing. The aromatics are my favorite part of this. Fresh, hoppy, citrusy. Heavy on the carbonation, there is almost a delay before the clean citrus flavors wash over the palate. Once they do, absolutely delicious. I like this considerably more than Mirror Pond.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark amber, good head. Toasty malt and a surprising amount of hops bitterness. There’s a slight hit of dark candy going on with a dry and slightly bitter finish. An easy drinking beer.

Bottle @ home. A touch hazy, red-orange appearance with a fluffy, cream-colored head. Soapy/floral, a touch citrusy/grapefruit hoppy aroma. A bit tart, grapefruit-centric, somewhat floral, sweet pale malty flavor. I was a bit put off by the soapy element in the nose, but the flavor is pretty nice.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reddish, copper color with mid-sized head. Aroma of hops and floral notes. Flavor is surprisingly sweet, with hop bite and citrusy notes. Full, smooth mouthfeel and nice, clean finish with only a mild bitterness. Think I’ll have another...

Smells like fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice in a pine forest. Taste is similar with mild hop bitterness offset by sweet caramel malt notes.

Bottle. A bit heavy for an American Pale Ale, but well balanced. Pine and Citrus with mild bitterness throughout. Nice malty caramel in the background. Finish is crisp and dry with light bitterness. Tasty.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Delicious. Aroma is grapefruit and citrus and sweet malt and pines. Taste is caramel and more grapefruit. Very good balance of malt backbone with a good amount of hops but not overally hoppy. Palate is excellent and creamy syrupy slightly then finishes dry. Well done.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: FEB 14, 2015 A cloudy orange color w/ foamy white head. West coast hops aroma. Taste is west coast hops--grapefruit and pine-- and also a solid creamy malt backbone. Notes of caramel, toast and green apple. Hoppy enough to be called an IPA, but not overpoweringly bitter. Very nice.

A cloudy copper color with a medium head. Smells of hops and tastes the same and malty, just a bit sweet!!
