3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Moderate pine aroma initially followed by a sweet caramel malt aroma. Taste is moderately sweet with a pine resin hop flavor and light orange and nectarine jam. Fairly balanced between malt and hop flavor but more on the malt side when compared to most pale ales by today’s standard. Still a very enjoyable and session able hoppy beer without too much bitterness or too much burnt toast malt.

Loved the color on this. Poured light golden with bubbles and a small white head. Hoppy and yeast nose that followed with a citrus hop profile that finished smoothly. A bit hop forward for a pale ale to my taste but good.

Orange clear with white head. Fruit and hop forward with mild bitterness. Not bad at all. Had this at Emmetts in downers grove from draft, part of a flight.

Bottle. Poured hazy dark copper color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate to heavy hop bitter aroma.

12 oz. bottle pours a hazy orange/amber color with decent white head and lacing. Aroma has lots of orange and tropical fruits, pine resin, and caramel with a bit of grass and bread. Body is medium with average carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. A solid, easily drinkable pale ale which I’ll gladly try again.
