3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear amber, moderate head with decent lacing and retention. Aroma is very grapefruity with some lesser floral and caramel notes. Medium bodied, low bitterness, a fair amount of hop flavor with a somewhat watery finish. Came off pretty light after a promising aroma.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at the Brickskeller. Completely clear, tinny pale yellow color. Pineapple, sweet garlic clove, and plenty of leafiness on the nose. Crisp saazy flavor, peppery with brisk grainy notes, though with no hint of malt nuance beyond them. Light floral notes, sprucy and fairly resinous, with tangy-sweet moments of fruit cocktail in the middle. Drying out in sesame seed and cracker toward the finish. Light palate, dry and clinging, ending on a parched grassy coating. Refreshing, though it might have been better a bit fresher.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2008 pours a nice hazy amber with a whiteish tan head. nice crisp citrusy, clean hoppy aroma. milder than other APA’s. has the nice pale ale taste, just more gentle. citrus, hops, floral. flavor dissipates somewhat quickly. light and smooth bodied. a good refresher. a little bubbly. head disappears quickly, but some nice lacing apparent. i would classify it as a ’light’ APA. reccomended for APA lovers as a little bit of a change. reccomended to non-beer drinkers for a reason to try some good beers.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle. Medium orange-yellow color with a small white head. Heavy citrus and pine Cascade hop aromatics. Citric metallic hop flavor dominates. Tinges of crystal malt peer through, provide some balance. Bracing bitterness in the finish, fades quickly to a residual sweetness. Mouthfeel is fairly light, somewhat dry.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
A great pale ale if you like a little cascade flower up your nose. If you don’t like cascade... don’t try it. But if you do you’ll love it. A taste sensation!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2009 pale gold appearance. crisp hop flavor, citrus in the flavor with some small malt accents, toffee and some other shit. I love this kind of hoppy pale ale. finishes clean and crisp, bitter but not overdone. kind of one dimensional and a little lighter in the mouth than SNPA but this a good one!

A prickly bitterness is a good way to describe this. I like that sort of finish. Man, Piscator knows his stuff. thanks for sharing this with me. It was great

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Gold. Some head. Hoppy aroma. Mild hoppiness with a good sharp taste midway through but doesn’t last.
