2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2014 OK, I’m not a person who likes a lot of hops... I give a break to the beers I rate that are hoppy but this one I couldn’t even finish. i know my rating is low but for those who like hops I guess in the end it will balance out.
(UPDATE) I must have had a bad day on the above rating...I upped my rating by nearly a full point.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours an amber color with a medium white head that left some lacing around the glass. The aroma is bready, earthy, floral hops, and some pine. The taste is similar, it is sweet but there is some hop bitterness to round it out.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bottle. Amber with one finger head. Medium body with caramel and earthy hops. Dry finish. Fairly unique for a pale ale, but not my thing.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Darkened gold color with a fuzzy white head.
N: Grapefruit, pine, earth, biscuit, some toast, a hint of pineapple. Peppercorn.
T: Decently bitter, a bit spicy, a touch sweet.
M: Medium body, creamy full carbonation, alcohol is hidden.
O: Certainly not a summer session ale, and for that, I am appreciative. i really like this one fresh hopped or on cask at the Portland brewpub, but I’m not reviewing those versions. Get em if you can, enjoy this one in the summer, too.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Translucent golden orange haze. Relatively tedious orange, citrus, grass, hop aroma. Much more impressed with the taste. Creamy and medium bodied. An initially grassy and hoppy flavour immediately evolves into a refreshing combination of orange cream, citrus, and malt, which then finishes again with a wee bit of hop. Flavourful and refreshing, yet simultaneously somewhat complex.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
"not really a blonde, but not really a pale ale.. way too hoppy to be classified as such, even though it’s still a pretty mellow ale. Clean, quite smooth, nothing spectacular."

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Refrigerated brown bottle, best by August 8, 2014, given to me from a guy at work after the best by date, poured into a glass. Hazy light orange with small white head. Aroma is light tropical fruit, medium body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is grapefruit, some herbal hops, with nice malt backbone.

Smooth and refreshing, but pretty light and lacking some bite. Good summer beer as advertised.
