3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted 8/22/11. 16oz Can. Pours mildly hazy with an amber hue. Layer of white head. Caramel and cooked sugar malts and earthy piney hops. Subtle duality between the citrus aspect and the fudgy malts. Medium bodied and rather dry. The malts hold sway, but not by too much. Bready malt flavors and a raw rye flavor. The hops are mellow, grassy and fresh. Decent effervescence that accentuates the hops, but also adds a dimension to the malt backbone. Decent at best.

Can. Golden color with a medium head. Nice beer, none of the terrible bitter aftertaste of some IPAs. Aroma is hay, grains, a touch of grapefruit. Taste is A malty grain with the right amount of grapefruit tasting hops. Nice.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-27-2012 (Can) This beer pours a medium sized off-white head with a long retention, golden transparent body and spotty amounts of lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, caramel malt. The flavor is lightly bitter, citrus hops and caramel malt. The mouthfeel is light carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. Overall, this beer is right on for the style, easy to drink, worth trying, and is an APA that I would drink again.

Very sappy sweet aroma. Flavor is sweet with an emphasis on the floral hops with not a great deal of bitterness. Sweet and easy drinking.

Surprisingly wheat-like. Good bit of citrus. Not an exceptional pale ale but not bad, and great for a hot day.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Meh...below average APA. Aroma was weak. Could pick up sweet caramel but had to search for it. Pour was a nice enough hazy dark gold with a one finger white head that left in minutes. Taste was very malt forward. Sweet doughy bread with caramel malt. Sweet orange notes in the finish. Totally out of place. No hops in the flavor. Medium carbonation.

16oz can, Pours a medium amber with a medium slowly fading white head, some lacing. Aroma is sweet citrus and pine hops, pale malt. Taste the same as aroma with malt and bready notes, mild hops bitterness. Palate is a medium body, crisp with good carbonation. Finish is pale malt, citrus with pine and citrus hops bitterness for balance. Overall a good drinking pale ale.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Slightly hazy orange body with very little head.
Aroma: Weak aroma with orange peel and key lime, but it’s very weak.
Taste: Crisp and bright with a hint of bitterness towards the end, which is overpowered by an earthy doughy finish.
Palate: Crisp body, moderately carbonated.
Overall: This does nothing for me. I don’t care to drink it and I don’t get enjoyment from it. I’d drink it for free, but it wouldn’t be my first choice.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can from Maltitude in Columbus, GA. Poured into a pint glass. Pours an amber color, clear, with solid white head that dissipates into a medium thick film. Aroma is light citrus hops and strong orange peel and spicy / toast malt notes as well. Taste is citrusy orange hops with toasty, caramel malts. Not overly sweet. Interesting mix of hops / malts here, but something seems off in the balance. Cant pinpoint what it is. Palate is medium carbonation, thin texture, slightly bitter finish. Wouldn’t drink again.
