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.

"very floral and fruity, especially for the style, without being overbearing. Definitely a nice example of the style, especially when fresh. Tropical fruit and flowers and enough malt to balance all in a light-bodied refreshing package. Is this really so different from their old pale ale, or is it just fresher?"

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light gold (borderline lager) look with piney aromas with and a hint of lemon zest. Balanced toasted malts with citrus hop flavors up front but which seem to completely disappear before hitting the back of the mouth. Lacks character. Will not repeat.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: Brilliant sparkling transparent light golden body with a fluffy white head. Good lacing.
Aroma: Light fruity aroma, like tangerine, mango, and peach.
Taste: Very light flavors. Low bitterness, very little malt character, and a hint of pine.
Palate: It has a great palate, being both refreshing and containing just the right amount of bitterness to cleanse the palate. Light bodied.
Overall: It is a very good light feeling American Pale Ale. It edges right on the lower side of everything, from bitterness to aroma and flavor. It is would be a good beer to drink at a picnic or an early morning to afternoon event which serves beer. I recommend trying it if you like pale ales but don’t want a lot of bitterness.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
355ml bottle. Pours a clear deep gold, with a medium off-white head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Floral, orange zest and spice hops mix with caramel and white toast malt to make up the aroma. Lime and orange rind hops up front lead into subtly sweet caramel malt in the mid-palate. Lemon curd hops come in at the finish, and there is a slight floral aftertaste. This is a very well-balanced APA, with good, interesting hops flavours sitting against a nicely rounded malt body.
