Thanks to Todd for sharing this one. Hazy gold pour with fizzy off white head and spotty lace. Piney hops and grainy aroma. Flavor fillers suite with a twist of lemon

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
pale golden colored pour with a soft barely tinted off white head.
the nose is a bit dirty/earthy... almost british type hoppy aromas mixed with caramel, pale malt, orange, grass and light florals.
medium bodied and crisp though the carbonation is low/soft.
the flavor is pretty much the same... more earth, spice and a touch of dry piney hops. there is enough dryness and bitterness to keep me interested but nothing else really stands out. 6/3/6/3/15/3.3

Light golden amber with flufy head. Floral, lightly citrus hop aroma with malt base buried in there somewhere. Fluffy carbonation. Floral hop is not there as much in the flavor. Lightly citrus and herby/woodsy hop flavor, not too much bite. Smooth malt enough to balance the hops, not too strong on either end. Lght finish, hop btteeness on tongue.

It is overly carbonated. The taste is watery. It smells okay - like Cascade hops.

Displays some honey and vanilla upfront with a light trail of tangy orange and pungent earth. Fades too quickly with a watered finale.

Bottle shared with the guys at the Barrios’ 500th Swallow Tasting. Clear golden pour with some whitish head. Nose Flavor of fresh citrus and floral hops, and almost a little sweetness to balance. Fairly crisp and refreshing. Pretty decent pale ale.

5 gallon keg from BevMo for my birthday. Pours with a clear golden body with a frothy white head that leaves fairly good lace. Aroma is hoppy with herbal and pineapple notes, some sweetness that is akin to orange icing, and a bit of grassy hay. Taste is citrus hops up front with caramel and quite a bit of husky, toasted grain. Light carbonation, low in residual sugars and somewhat dryish. Good pale ale.
