3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled 02/2014. Pours a light golden honey color with a small white head that dissipates quickly and notable lacing. Aroma is orange, grapefruit, sweet malts, lots of citrus. Flavor is very sweet up front, almost candy-like. Certainly a less bitter strain of hops, more sweetness in the middle of the mouth and a long bitter clean finish and aftertaste. Medium carbonation. It’s light and very drinkable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours clear gold in color, thin white head. Great pale ale aroma, nice citrus hop aroma. Taste has some of those same hops but also some sweetness comes across, caramel and vanilla. Nice and balanced, feels fairly light. Finishes nice and clean. I can’t believe I waited this long to try this, might be a new regular for me.

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.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Compliments of uncle Steve. pours a nice dark yellow, clear and clean. Head laces to sides nicely. Even with a cold, the hoppy aroma comes through nicely. Nice light hop flavor that is not overdone. Mouthfeel is good but not great. Bittering on backside is light.
Earlier Rating: 8/5/2008 Total Score: 4
I liked this a lot! Nice floral nose at pouring. Poured a butterscotch color with head that disipated to a nice lacing around edge. Great mouthfeel with JUST the right amount of hops. Nice bittering at the end. Sure would love to find this in NC regularly! Thanks to the Magic of DrBayern and his Magic Bus trip to Beantown!

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.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a vibrant golden color with a white head which stays around quite a whiled. Aroma is pure and clean floral hop. Floral aroma moves right into the taste hitting then clean and crisply with the malt and finishing with a touch of bitterness......a wonderfully well rounded pale with pronounced hop notes. Wonderful rendition of a well built hoppy American pale ale.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild hop aromas with some hints of citrus. Pale yellow in color, minimal head. Nice initial sweet flavor of malt with citrusy hop overtones. Mild bitterness from hops. Finish is quick and bitter. A bit watery but not bad.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is floral and citrusy. Pours a light color amber with a white head. A good bit of carbonation adds to the bitterness. Taste is citrusy, somewhat piney. Overall the bitterness and hop aromas stand out the most; seems slightly unbalanced.
