3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Monks. Slightly hazy copper pour with just some wandering foam for a head. Very juicy and very dry. Red plums. Elephant ear mushrooms. Caramel sweetness in the middle but a big floral hop bite to finish. Full and crisp for a nondeScript Pale Ale. Hopped up quite a bit. Very nicely blended.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled (thanks Kimi!). Amber colour, small white head. Aroma is brutal grass and floral notes. Flavour is grassy, bready, quite dry earthyness. Too hoppy for an APA, too little alcohol for IPA. Yet a very good beer for hopheads (which I am not, sadly).

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. This is well filtered darker golden with a nice beige head. Some lacing. This beer is all about citrus hops. They are big for the style and are bitter. Caramel builds as the beer warms but never equals the hops. A hint of cinnamon. A quality pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle poured a light amber with orange hues, medium whitish head, and minimal lacing. Aroma is mainly grassy and piney hop notes and a hint of citrus. Taste is undistinguishable blend of piney, floral, and citrus notes. Nothing memorable and less drinkable than expected considering low ABV.
