3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Craft. Pours hazy straw colored with off-white head. Nose is piney hops, grapefruity citrus, pale malt. Tasted of pale malt, with big tropical fruit notes, although this one didnít "pop" the way many Citra beers do.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewpub, amber color. Nose dank hop and malt. Initial grassy and some floral hop. Softer finish. Moderate mid palate finish. Nothing off putting, but they had other more exciting pales on tap that day.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Craft Hands. Light amber colour, big off-white head. Aroma is citrus hops and slight graininess, lots of grapefruit too. In fact really smells like grapefruit juice. Taste is bit twiggy, nice bitterness, grapefruit again, and more citrus too, orange and lemon. Decent maltiness too. Hints of cat piss but thatís fine by me.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on draft at the brewery. Huge hopping character throughout. Big citrusy notes, pine, citrus rind. Not a good balance between the malts and bitterness. Overall a good beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cloudy orange pour with a creamy white. Really nice citrus aroma, grapefruit, tangerine, and orange. Pine and floral hop notes, a slight malt sweetness, and bread. Good fresh citrus flavor, plenty of bread, and light pine. Some light bitterness, toast, and citrus peel. Very standard, clean, and easy to drink pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Sampled with Andrew and Moreau at GABF 2012. Pours a hazy amber orange body with thine white lacing. Aroma is fresh, juicy burst of citrus and tropical fruit and nice light, fresh pine. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of grapefruit, pineapple, pine and light citrus. I wish I had access to more 50/50 brews.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Draft at Fiftyfifty. New entry apparently. One of the juiciest Pale Ales I have ever had the pleasure of tasting. Pours hazy orange, thin white head, above average lacing. Nose is peaches, grapefruit, tropical fruit, very juicy and lush nose. Flavours of light peaches, delicious grapefruit, loads more fruit and citrus. Light pine and spice, just in the finish. Just lovely stuff. Mayne my new favorite Pale.
