3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from @cotteridgewines why am I drawn to beers that have hop in the name or label this has both! Pour dark amber with small off white head. Citrus, piney hops one the aroma. Can’t taste the hops as much as the smell, more sweet malts in the foreground. Nice ale.

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2014 Draft at the brewery. Small glass shows orange brown color, minimal off-white head. Hoppy aroma of pine, citrus and grassy notes. Taste brings out sweet caramal malt, light citrus hop leans grapefruit to me. Not really hoppy but not bad. Decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate grass, light pine, caramel, and a touch of fruit. It pours a transparent amber with a two finger orange tinged off-white head with excellent retention. There’s lots of soapy lacing left behind on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate caramel with a touch of fruit. The finish has light-moderate grass, light grain, and a touch of pine. It’s medium bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel. Overall, an easy drinking malty Pale Ale.
