2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Average pale at best. Faint to zero aroma, small hop, grain. The appearance was a translucent copper with little head, little lacing, and a light overall look to it for a pale. The palate started a bit sticky and finished crisp, an odd transformation, with a light body. The taste held grain and hop notes up front that faded to a salty hay/grain finish.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Hazy golden beer with a thin, white head. Weak aromas of floral hops and barley. Tastes of weak floral notes, slight hints of grapefruit, and some skunky, dirty water. Bitter finish. This stuff is really lackluster and not all that great.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottled. Poured crystal-clear orangey-golden with a short-lived white head. The aroma picked up honey and corny malts with light earthy and exotic fruity hops around.. cheap malt-forward.. non-offensive, but not interesting either. The flavor found honey, pale, and lesser biscuity malts at the core.. sharp and a little scratchy around, with earthy and citrus bitterness.. finished sharp, bitter, and not tasty. Light-bodied with tight carbonation.. I didn’t care for this one.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours orange tinged gold with a slight whiteish head. Aromas of light roast malt and floral hop. Med body. Flavor is mostly floral over light roast caramel. It’s not so much bitter as it is floral. Interesting take.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, pours amber color, small foam head to the glass. Not your typical micro APA, not as hoppy as most. Overall, decent, a little thin, maybe taste of watered down version, slightly hopped flavoring, more malts in this brew. Slight bitter finish.

120z. bottle: This one pours a slightly hazy golden color. There was a small white head on it that lingers a bit and leaves a little lacing. Lighter bit nice nose. Some pine and citrus hop notes, as well as some faint malts and grain. The taste is good. Medium bodied. Somewhat bitter. A faint caramel malt sweetness up front. Somewhat dry finish, with pine notes. An easy drinker.
