2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light on the palate; didnít expect that out of something called an "ultra pale ale." Grassy, a little citrus, curious mouthfeel, Maybe itís just me, but I got a little metallic blowback on the finish. Seems like an ok session beer for a summer day, but doesnít seem at all like a serious pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home. Mostly clear golden pour with a massive, rocky white head. Smells really grassy and lemony. Some orange peel, tea, and a hint of woody herbs. Not much malt, at least. Flavor is kind of bready. Has a bunch of tea and grass. Lemon peel all day as well. Light herbs, some cracker, and maybe peach.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle pours golden amber, white head that leashes a thick lacing coat. Nose has light hop resin. Taste was more hop forward, felt like chewing on a centennial hop cone, juicy. Pine, citrus. Light sweetness undulates with light bitterness. Light body that feels thin on the finish.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The body has a bright yellow gold color with great clarity. On top sits a small one and half finger thick white head that hangs on well and makes some nice lace on the glass. The aroma has a nice sweet maltiness with tons of juicy hop character. It has strong citrusy and fruity with just a hint of fruitiness. The malt is much lighter and understated which really shows off the vibrant hops. It is a little lighter bodied than most Pale Ales, sort of a light to medium range with a good bright and juicy hop forward character. This is right on point from the aroma and there are nice citrusy lemon and grapefruit with hints of pineapple notes over a delicate sweet bready layer of maltiness. It finishes fairly dry with more citrusy hops and mellow hop bitterness. The lighter body easy drinking texture makes for an extremely refreshing beer with plenty of nice carbonation.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Labeled an "ultra pale ale", itís very thin in appearance, almost glassy, and yellow/gold in color. Its nose is grainy and pleasant, with some sweetness and grass. Itís grainy and somewhat sour, perhaps with some citrus and/or yeast defining the flavor. Itís not offensive, but I wouldnít purposefully drink this.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Looks good poured from the bottle, slightly hazy. Fairly clean fresh candy aroma. Interesting name, implies low alky but I think I feel a little warming feeling in the gullet. Seemed to be somewhat sharp at first but I think its dulling as the session continues. Finish is medium apa.
