3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled on draft at the Santa Barbara Airport. Pours out a nice golden copper color. Aroma is light and sweet of oranges and citrus. Hops are evident once you take a sniff. Taste is good, really clean and light but still very flavorful from the hops and slightly sweet caramel from the malt. This is a great example of a simple American Pale that really can be appreciated by many different people with different tastes. Reminded me of SNPA for how simple good flavor can really be sometimes. This is the kind of beer I would love to homebrew.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smaak en aroma liggen niet ver uit elkaar. Vol limoen, sinaasappel schil, passievrucht en een zweem kaneel. Geen boem en bam in de mond, maar allemaal prima is balans, verfrissend, zelfs nasmaak is aangenaam bitter. Jammer van dat minimale kraagje op oranje.

Quite a surprisingly nice beer. Medium golden copper with a medium head. Pleasant hops and malt aromatics with good hops bitterness with character, medium malt flavors, and a bit of earthiness from the oak barrel fermentation.

Pours blonde with one inch head. Delicate balance between moderate citric bitterness and light grain. Crisp, dry, and sessionable. Very flavorful for a sub 5% beer. Pretty much perfect pale ale.

Initial taste of crisp grapefruit and citrus hops and medium malts. Good balance with the active carbonation. Decent head retention. Finishing with a bitter hops that linger on the palate, finishing dry. Very impressed wit this american pale ale.
