2.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Had this beer on 7/3/2006. Aroma is a nice hoppy scent. Color is a bright gold with good carbonation and a lose head. Taste is hoppy and bitter. Starting with a medium body that goes down smooth with a sharp bitterness come in on the end. Finish starts off bitter then is back by a hopping flavor and ends bitter. Its got no malt flavor, its just bitter and a little hoppy. They should rename it as an extra special bitter, then it would fit better.

The 12 ounce bottle poured a clear, orange-amber beverage with a modest creamy white head that was mostly diminishing but it left good lacing on the glass. The aroma was subtle but I was able to discern light floral hop notes and a bit of a beady malt essence. The body was medium with soft carbonation and a watery texture. The flavor starts out lightly bitter and then it quickly increases. The bitterness levels off at about medium and lasts through the medium-long finish.

Draft. Grapefruit hop aroma. The flavor is similar; dominated by grapefruit and citrus hops. More like an IPA than an american pale ale.

I was definitely surprised by this one. Hops for miles. Biscuity malts ala Fat Tire...but with much more of a dry edge. Not watery. Nose was more malty than hoppy. Nice and clean. Assetive hop bite.

Pours a light amber color with a white head. Has a bitter hoppy aroma. Flavor is a little taste of malt up front and a nice easy bitter hop finish. Not an amazing pale ale but a good easy drinking one.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A pretty well balanced pale ale. Just pretty average and light in the flavor department. Aroma is strong with grapefruit and fresh flowers. Caramel maltiness, with just a hint of nuttiness. Overall pretty thin and light.
