2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the taproom. Poured a light yellow with a thin head. The aroma was slightly soapy with mild malt. The flavor was all astringent soapy hop with very little malt balance. I had a hard time finishing my beer and half way through started thinking that it may be slightly skunked.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From a growler fill at the brewery.
Pours pale amber with a good-sized white head and plenty of lacings. Aroma is floral hops.
Taste is grapefruit citrus bitter hops. Just enough malts to support the bitterness. Tangy, almost crisp. Close to IPA level of hops. Very tasty brew. I will enjoy the rest of this growler. Due to the reasonable abv, this would be a fine session APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with thin white head. Nice floral hop aroma. Bitterness hits first but is not cloying. Clean finish, bitterness and carbonation create a prickly mouthfeel that enhances hop bitterness

Great sessionable pale ale. This would be great to drink all the time. Simple with a great malt structure you can really sink your teeth into. Bitter hoppiness, lots of citrus and grapefruit. A simple, well balanced pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very nice pale ale, really potent floral citrus hops in the aroma. Grapefruit finish, very crisp, but with enough malts to keep the palate from being burnt out. Pours a nice glowing orange with a soft white head. One of the best pales i’ve had in a while.
