3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pale gold with a good frothy top. Good retention and lace. Grassy hop aroma over light malt. Light bitter, pilsner malt flavor. Light body, soft carbonation, light oily texture, and a nice, dry bitter finish. Definitely not an IPA. Barely a Pale Ale. I’d call this a hoppy Blond Ale, and a good one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Rose and Thistle. Pours a pale golden color with a pilsner smell. Tastes like a bitter pilsner. Not really my favorite and it isn’t really a great fall beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 mL bottle. Pours fairly light yellow w/ a bit of foam. Piney, bitter, yet clean hops. Very clean, subtle malt profile as well. Would’ve liked a stronger malt backbone to support the hops, but that’s just me. Not too crazy about the the all-Pilsner malt.

Really unique. Brewed with only pilsner malt and challenger hops. Nicely hopped and showcased, the malt stands up to the hop well, different.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy yellow. Doesn't smell or taste like much, but there's some hops in there. Try dry hopping a bit more for something named vaporizer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Super pale yellow. Looks like a heady coors light. Actually sort of smells like it, too. A bit of hops in the flavor, which develops this into a decent brew... fresher than the aroma lets on. Still very "meh."

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap. Crisp and smooth. Mild citrus and mild bitterness. Nice malt flavor towards the finish. Good tasting brew but not much of an IPA punch. Would rate this higher as an APA.
