3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Liked the branding better than the beer. Good Pale Ale but nothing to write home about stacked up against the big boys. Would drink it again but not seek it out.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Drank from a bottle, purchased at Wegmans. Flowery aromas from the hops. Tastes a good pale ale, with just a bit of hop power, but not overpowering. A good brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle poured. Had this one a few times before, but out of all of the easy to find mass produced beers from these guys, I would say this is the one I’ve had the least. Pours a lighter orange color with a fading fizz head. Subtle hops and orange fruit aroma. Flavor is pretty standard the style. Nothing too out of the ordinary. Decent hop flavor all around with a mild bitter finish. I actually spilled about half of this on accident, so the name is quite fitting for the guy drinking it. Overall not bad.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Very average, down side very cloudy and way over carbonated. May be of bottle forgot to check if there is a date on it. Standard bitter hop aroma standard bitter hop flavor. Older sense f hops, not super fresh. Oh well

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours hazy copper colour, minimal white head. Nice malty aroma, brown sugar and some citrus in the background. Bitter taste but not overwhelmingly so, very smooth. Mouthfeel is soft, not a whole lot of carbonation so it’s very easy to drink. Enjoyble beer overall.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours copper with an off-white head with decent lacing. The aroma is on the maltier side for a pale ale, unfolding notes of caramel and roast, while the hops contribute resin and fruitier aspects which are rather short-lived. The flavor follows the nose closely: caramelly and rather roasty for a pale ale up front, followed by resin and citrus peel on the mid-palate before a profound bitterness and warmth from the alcohol kick in to make up the long, dry finish. Decent.

The aroma was malty, meaty, caramel and vegetal - rather bock like to me. The flavor was bitgter, drysih, vegetal, meaty and earthy - again bock like. Medium length finsih. Medium body. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle - Cloudy golden color. Slight dry hop flavor with not much malt counterpart. Tons of floral notes on this beer that are pronounced.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle pours cloudy amber with a thin cream head. Smells of orange and booze and faintly pine too. Tastes fruit sweet with a mildly bready malt note and a complex but mild juniper-spice-hop twang on the finish. Carbonation and body are average with an acidic finish. Surprisingly complex pale ale... hopefully it remains so after the AB buyout.
