3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Compliments of DrBayern (Thanks Matt), The beer poured a light medium golden from 12 oz bottle. Formed a nice bubbley foamy head of foam. Aroma of malts, hops, ocean water and grasses. Flavour was of the same, extremely smooth, yet somewhat bitter. Extremely drinkable beer, sheeeesh, wish I had about 24 more! WOW!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle at TJ’s. Poured hazy gold. Extremely smooth and light, crisp citrus hoppiness. More characteristic of an extra pale ale. Was expecting a little bit more from these guys but this one is very sessionable at least.

Fabulous sweet light floral aroma. Very floral hop flavor. Very enjoyable if you like the style, which I enjoy. Pretty mellow carbonation and soft body. Nice lingering flavors.
Solid, not the flavor profile I’m dieng to drink a lot though.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear shinny golden color with some orange hues and a medium, creamy white head. Aroma is piney, resinous, pungent, really fresh. Biitersweet flavor with a strong hoppy aroma that ends with a piney/ grapefruit note. Medium to light palate, tasteful yet gentle and easy to drink. Great pale ale, could drink this all day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Świetny aromat chmielowy, cytryna, grejpfrut, winogrona, bardzo czysty i zachęcający. W smaku wytrawne, z wyraźną goryczką w stylu amarillo (pestka grepfruta), za którą nie przepadam, ale tu była ok. Finisz za to lekko męczący trawiasty. Niemniej jednak nie przegięte, orzeźwiające, idealne na plaże itd. No i dla hopheadów...

Guldig klar med litet vit skum. Mycket citrus humle i både doft och smak. Väldigt fyllig trots låg% med bra beska

Reviewed 1/16/2010 (Bottle):
Pours a very clear, pale yellow color body, big white foamy head, big bubbles, lasting. Very hoppy aroma, citrus and dry. Some sweetness too. Bitter. Pale dry taste, drying citrus. Mostly clean aftertaste. Nice pale ale. Not complex, but good, almost sessionable.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This bottle was a great extra that I received in a recent trade! 22 oz bottle.
A- Body is a nearly transparent golden yellow. Pours with an approximately 1 finger foamy white head and leaves some lacing behind in the glass.
S-Sweet pale malt collides with a semi-bright citrus and piny hop presence. Nose is on the hoppier side of APAs
T-Upfront is a minimal balance of seltzer flavor and some piny flavor with a substantial sweet pale malt backbone. There is a touch of piny and floral hops as well as a sudden quick burst of citrus flavor for the finish and a medium strength hop bitterness lingering. Though my description sounds very hoppy the flavors are all pretty subtle and the general balance of the beer comes through the most.
P-High tingly carbonation and light body that is still full and drinkable.
O- This is a decent-definitely above average APA that, to me, is pretty typical for the style. It really doesn’t have anything unique and it is quite drinkable-but not my favorite APA. I’m all over the place with this style as it is and this example falls somewhere in the middle of the road.
