3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On draft at the brewpub. Solid aroma of alfalfa, pine, and heavy orange hoppiness. Spot-on color of light orangish-amber with a fluffy white head. The taste features a quick bitter bite of dry floral hops with a hint of citrus and biscuity malt. Very bitter dry finish. A good pale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Fate. Clear light amber pour with a white head. Very floral and peachy nose. A bunch of apricot, straw, and some sweet caramel. Flavor is a touch on the sweet side. A bunch of apricot, peach, and orange. Slight pine and grassy bitterness. Not quite as good as their other offerings.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewpub. Pours a gold color with a small to medium white head that laces the glass and has a lasting film. Notes of lemon citrus, pale malts, straw, and grass. Light-bodied, with low to moderate carbonation and a smooth, clean mouthfeel. Good APA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh grapefruit and pine aroma with strawberry and base malt notes. Clear bronze under a lasting, bubbly, off-white blanket. Sweet caramel flavour perfectly balanced by strawberry and pine hops (must be centennial hops in here). Bitterness balances the sweet caramel perfectly. Big flavour yet delicate. Medium body, medium carbonation, almost dry finish. Epitome of the APA.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Very nice pale ale. Menu says it’s similar to a west coast IPA and I agree, it’s close. Small nose but nice and bitter with good taste.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at brewpub
pours bright deep orange with a Sudsy white head and great lacing. Pure c hops on the nose with notes of tangerines and pineapple. Flavors are sweet pineapple grapefruit and some tart fruits. Very complex pale. However its a bit on the sweet inside somewhat astringent and sugary at times. Finish is dry firm yet remains sweet underneath the dry. Very good!

Super nice. Basically an IPA. Very hoppy. Strong grapefruit and pine notes. Fresh. Maybe a tad less bitter than an IPA.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Copper pour with thick foamy head. Amazing aroma of hops & citrus. Flavors of hops, citrus pith, and slight malt combine for a easy hop-tastic mouthfeel that is not over-the-top at all. Balance of malt and hops leave a nice bitter finish. Delicious, refreshing, easy drinking pale (borderline IPA) that is great for every day.
