2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle from Paul U. Cloudy orange pour without a lot of head, small mount of lacing. Aroma is slightly hoppy and citrusy but also has something that I can’t quite identify. Flavor is more of the same, has a small bitter bite to the finish. Not too bad.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy golden orange color with very little head. The aroma is fairly hoppy, especially for an extra pale ale, with hints of citrus fruit. This beer has an interesting flavor. It is a bit sweet and almost creamy to start with but there is definitely a hoppy bite in the aftertaste and there is a bit of green grass as well. The beer is very clean drinking, but the flavor may leave something to be desired. There is a creamy, sweet flavor on one end with a bitter hoppy flavor on the other end with nothing in the middle to tie them together.

Crushed with Honkeybra at GABF. Very nice bitter hop hit to it. Not very balanced, but it’s still a nice pale ale.

Bottle thanks to me. Bright gold with a clean hop nose. Syrupy and chewy-surprising body and very alcoholic for the style. Not a bad beer for a session.

Hazy orangish/copper pour. I get a lot of caramel malt and honey on the nose with some light fruit. Hops are muted. Flavor is a bit prickly from some herbal hops, I also taste wildflower honey and caramel.
