3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle-purchased at the brewery-Aug 2012-pours hazy copper hue with a small soapy eggshell head. nose is big carmel malts, pine hops, woody notes, lite green apples, err, wait alot of green apples. flavors exhibit the green apples and carmel malts with an undertone of piney hops. wow, this is very over-rated. I cant get past the green apple notes here!!! Its too bad-this is a very well made beer however, something went wrong on fermentation. That green apple is over the top!!!!!! ugh....so sad. If this didnt have that infection, it would have been very high 3 rating. I can tell it has a nice malt and hop combo, a more malty, almost ESB-ish type of APA here. infection gets the best of it though....

Similar flavor, medium resinous hop bitterness and light malty sweetness. Medium body with soft carbonation and a light dry finish. A nice hoppy, yet easy drinking pale ale.

Release #12. 12 oz. can from Supermarket Liquors. Appearance: 2 finger white head, straw gold color, clear, good lacing. Aroma:pine, grass, caramel, light sweet caramel, metallic. Palate: light body, average carbonation, bitter finish, slightly sticky. Taste: light sweet caramel into slightly watery and metallic with some metallic astringency and pine bitterness coming into a mild bitter finish. The metallic taste is obviously intentional, so it is well done. Very enjoyable and unique. Drinkable.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Easily one of the best PAs I’ve had. My can’s clocking in at 5.2% ABV. Here’s what I get. Flavorful beyond words for this style as well as for this ABV, and an incredibly amazing malt backbone. Highly recommended. My rating reflects the style and the ABV.
