3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a nice copper with a foamy head. Aroma of tropical fruit/ floral hops, clean sweet crystal malt. Mouthfeel is smooth, average carbonation. Hops are dominated by pineapple and papaya flavors, a good burst of bitterness followed by slightly sweet caramel malt. More tropical fruit and a lingering bitterness on the finish. Great effort from a small brewery.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This was a pretty impressive pale ale, really, almost an IPA for the amount of bitterness and piney aroma. Very spicy, very resiny. A delicious beer, but maybe not one you’d want if you’re really in the mood for a session pale.
