3.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hoppy aroma, as expected with hints of tropical fruit and raisins. The appearance is rather amber like and not that pale, maybe red chair and pale ale is some kind of hybrid thing? The taste is a bit hoppy and some bitterness but the malt profile is rather present together with a (relatively) large portion of sweetness which I donít want in a pale ale.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled from a bottle,
this beer had a medium red pour with orange at the sides, and gave almost a two finger cover of off-white bubbles, it left nice spots and fingers of lacing,
this drink had aromas of citrus, lemon and floral hops with a good toasted malt, a little bread and caramel, a little malt sweetness,
the flavors were toasted malt, caramel and citrus hops, a little bread and about medium malt sweetness,
the finish had a light to medium hop bitterness and gave a light bite that hung on for a bit, toasted malt and caramel trailed on the taste buds,
it had a light mouth feel, creamy on the lips and had average carbonation,
the hops were more noticeable on the tongue than the nose, it had had a nice toasted malt flavor, a very nice beer.

Rating this a day later; (posthumously? Lol). Great example of a classic US pale, fruity and well balanced

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Seems like marries otter malts preface this. The hop punch in aroma is exactly that a citrus hop punch. The malts add such a nice dimension. Enjoyable predicable hop bomb.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle from Hippo Beers. Deep orange brown, big foamy head, lot of sediment. Resin, grain, boiled sweet & hop aroma. Soapy dry barley and hop flavour. Sharp with bitter aftrertaste. More an amber ale to me.
