3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a bright orange with a small white head which fades to okay lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, dank hops,sweet malts, and some herbal hop notes. Taste is pretty simar to the aroma. Has a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a tast, refeshing and highly sessionable APA.

Had a sample in a flight at Mohawk Bend. Solid, but strangely herbal. Refreshing, nicely hoppy.

Not sure how to rate this one, interesting blend, not quite a pale ale nor a wheat ale, a blend between the two, hard to replicate.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Apex
A: Dull copper color with a crisp bubbly white head.
N: Lots of pineapple and grapefruit. Some pine and earth, though I’d call this fairly non-descript.
T: The taste is moderately bitter with a light sweetness. There’s not much to say about this other than that it’s clean.
M: Light and moderately sticky.
O: A decent quaffer. Not something I’d order very often (and I had some high hopes for it, because a 3.8% session beer is a great thing), but it does work to refresh the palate.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at The Salted Pig, Riverside CA. Low haze straw pour. Huge lacing. Nose is really nice juicy citrus, orange juice, papaya. Taste is very thin/watery up front, moving to grassy hops and citrus peel. Moves to juicy papaya and fresh orange juice. Light bodied/ultra sessionable. Refreshing. Clean, excellent.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma: Citrus, pine, damp forrest floor.
Appearance: Gold with a orange hue and a moderate but steady white head,
Flavor: dominated by floral/herbal hops with a hint of malt.
Palate: Light bodied, moderate carbonation with a mild but lingering bitterness.
Overall: An excellent light pale ale - perhaps enhanced by the current heatwave.

Bottle. Cloudy pour with white head. Full bodied aroma, like an IPA, citrusy. Light bodied, some hop, little malt. Something of a thin finish. Still a fairly good ale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crystal clear golden coloured body with hardly a head at all - a touch of a white top, but not really a head. Aroma of water, light hops, citrus and pine - this one, you can tell, is very mild. Light-bodied; Nice fresh hop flavour with grass and herbs coupled with the tiniest malt flavour and a little caramel sweetness at the finish. Aftertaste shows a good hop flavour with not much else - not much malt (a good thing) and no real complexity - just a bunch of herbs and grassy flavours with the hops taking front and centre stage. Overall, a nice session beer with a good amount of hops that shows well - nice to sample! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Bottle Craft in San Diego, California yesterday on 06-June-2013 for US$2.10 sampled in my hotel room here in San Diego on 07-June-2013.
