Draught at the brewpub, Pike st.
Cloudy blond color. Light orange aroma. It has a light orange touch, besides that it’s also a nice light Pale Ale.

Citrus and hop flavor dominate this beer, which is very mild tasting overall. Refreshing, a decent beer for the right occasion, but I wouldn’t drink it every day.

Pouirs hazy, cloudy burnt orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, floral and hay. Taste is sweet with less bitterness then the aroma belies. Medium bodied, thin texture, average carbonation and sharp finish.

12oz single from Crossroads. Thus was a rather boring pale ale. The milky orange body sat under an average sized fiamy white head and had a little extra citrus juciness in the aroma that didn’t carry over to the grainy bready flavor. Meh.

Bottle. Hazy straw with a thin white head. Aroma is resin, tangerine and citrus skins. Blood orange comes through in the taste backed up by resinous bitterness. Prickly carb. Nice change of pace.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, tiny bubbled, very well retained, off white head, with some lacing, over a very hazy, gold (SRM 5) body....nose is heavy citrus (orange in type), light cereal, minimal hop notes, no esters.....taste is citrus with grapefruit, orange, blood orange, lime (a fruit salad), minimal esters, light hop honey floral notes, finishing with a lingering bitterness....mouth feel, medium body, moderate astringency, moderate acid finish, with low carbonation. This is not an APA, it is rather a spice, herb, vegetable variant. The APA is lightly present, with the malts and hops nicely balanced. However they are both dominated, as is the yeast contributions, by the fruit additions. It is not an unpleasant beer, it just isn’t an APA. Rating above to enjoyment, with rating below to style.
