3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice pale ale with a great hop medley. I usually really love dry hopped ales, but this one was a bit too subtle for me. Very floral, crisp beer with a lot of character, but not as bitter as I’d like. Pours a gorgeous yellow orange with golden edges. A winner but not a favorite.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This aroma offers the nose a smell of hops, peaches, grapefruit, and molasses. It is a golden solution with very little head offered. This thin bitter sour beer produces a taste of hops and grapefruit that fades leaving a mild hint of molasses lingering on the tongue.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Third Base Round Rock. Clear pale amber and a small white head that leaves good lace. Light nose with subdued grass and citrus. Low sweet malt start followed by a medium bitterness. Medium mouth with slightly soft carbonation and a short dry finish. Inoffensive and easy to drink but nothing outstanding.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Orange-golden and clear with a medium creamy head. Aroma of citrus/grapefruit, tropical fruits (pineapple, melon), spices (maybe cinnamon, maybe a little vanilla), maybe almonds. Tastes very fruity as described, decent bitterness, floral and resiny hop-qualities. Bitter and a little sweet ending with a good moutfeel.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from bier-deluxe.de. Dark golden, clear body, with big, frothy, creamy, white head. Aroma of mango, passion fruit, grapefruit, pine, grass, candy. Tastes of lemon zest, grapefruit, pine and a tasty, smooth malt backbone of caramel, biscuit, grass and some candy. Mouthfeel is medium, slick, with a medium carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, with grapefruit, pine and some candy. A refreshing, greatly balanced example of a west coast Pale Ale, that has tasty citric fruit and pine notes and also a determined malt backbone. Excellent!

bottle - clear golden beer with a white head with tons of american hops aroma! Very nice! Flavour is malty what is balanced by a decent bitterness. But bitterness is not extreme. Medium carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle poured a clear pale gold color with a tiny white head. The aroma is light citrus hops and some small amounts of caramel. The taste is nice and smooth not leaning too much to the hops with a nice balance. A good pale that is clean, but it might benefit to add more hops.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear medium golden color with an average snow white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Pretty yummy aroma. The flavor is somewhat less hoppy that the aroma would lead on (maybe to be expected for a dry hopped ale), but it is good. Maybe a little bit sweet without enough hops to cut it, but not bad. Crisp and easy to drink.
