3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bright amber/gold appearance with a large white head and very good lacing. Earthy, whole grain aroma dotted with herbal hops. Orchard-like flavors turn more bitter with a mild ciderish note in the aftertaste. Crisp, medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel with a lasting finish.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Transfer from BA review on 2-17-13-
Poured from bomber into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden straw color with a two finger white head. The head fades very fast to leave only a very light level of lacing.
Smell- The aroma is light overall with some toasted malt and a grainy smell. Mixed with these are some lighter notes of a citrus hop nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a more dry bready flavor up front. There is light citrus hop very near the start which grows stronger at the middle only to fade more toward the end. While the citrus hop flavor diminished from the middle to the end, herbal and grassy hop flavors grow stronger on the tongue. In the end a crisp and lightly bittered grassy/herbal flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium to light side with a carbonation level that is medium to slightly above medium. The mouthfeel couple with the flavors of the brew create a rather crisp and easy drinking beer.
Overall - Nothing all that extraordinary here. Overall it is a decent APA with a more crisp taste and feel.

Draft - Right balance of hops that is not overpowering yet you can still taste the bitterness from the hops. Not much sweetness, very little malt to balance out the hops. Lots of citrus flavor on this one. Kinda has a “water” taste to it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden yellow with a thick eggshell head that leaves heavy lacing. Malty, fruity aroma is rather sweet. Malty flavor has an overtone of woody hops that is slightly bitter. Texture is fizzy and fairly firm; you can feel it all the way down the hatch. Catch one!

Refreshing and very crisp, with some complexity from the hop and yeast combination. A little complex, enough to hold your interest, and medium weight and length on the palate.

6/22/14. Draft at Brew. Pours golden with a thin head. Very mild nose. Starts with malts dominating but the hops creep up. Not much of a citrus profile in the hops.

12oz can, which I’m pretty sure I got from Perfect Pour. Clear golden orange color. Off-white head, with good retention. Medium body. Smooth, kind of crisp, lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Nice moderate to bigger bitter taste. Light kind of zesty sweet. Good citrusy hop aroma, light bit of pine, with a very clean bready malt bill. Solid, clean satisfying pale ale. Good one to enjoy with my Skyline.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a clear golden color with a thin head. Aroma is slightly skunky with apples and pale malts. Taste is very smooth and malty with a good amount of hops. Slightly sweet overall but the pine hops give it a nice balance. Overall pretty good.
