3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a red amber with a soft foam head. Subtle citrus and hop aroma, really nothing overpowering. Flavourful, but not as bitter as I like, when it comes to your typical pale ale. Almost pale is right.

I like this beer. May not be as hoppy as most ipa I drink but overall this is a good beer and definatly worth a try. Appearance is a nice dark haze. Taste is well balanced with both a nice malt background with hints of nuts and Caramel and a good hop finish. Will definatly enjoy again.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This beer poured a clear straw colour, with a minimal head. The aroma was of light malts, citrus, nuts and grains. the tasting notes include more light malts, orange peel, mango, and a slightly hoppy finish. Good overall, but I am not a fan of the style.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 28 2012. Bottle pours dark clear amber with an inch foamy head that settles to ring and leaves slight lacing. Aroma of citrus and grassy pine hops. Slight grapefruit and floral hints in aroma. Taste has all of these elements in a subtle blend that balances well and doesn't struggle with each other for dominance. It is definitely a hopsy brew but only "almost". That is, the flavours are good but lacking in intensity. There is no bite or kick I expected from this brewery. Still, nice easy drinking, with smooth palate and crisp finish without the bitter aftertaste associated with others in the family. A good beginners beer to their other full-bodied brews.

floral and fruits hits the nose on smelling after pouring into glass. dark amber in color, with noticeable carbonation in glass. Smooth texture and with a bitter finish but not too yowzah! I get from some hoppier beers. This is not a bad beer and is 5% ABV, some of the other IPA’s and hoppier beers I have had are over 6%. This is a surprising beer, pretty good.

Another Flying Monkey offering that I was keen to try because of it’s provenance and good ratings but it was kinda unexciting, especially after the great hoppy nose. Wouldn’t buy it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from the Beer Store. Pours a slight hazy amber with a small off white head. Nose is mostly caramel and citrus. Lightly hopped for a low level of bitterness. More grassy than anything. Light to medium body that is quite drinkable. A pale ale designed not to offend anyone.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep reddish brown with an off white head.
Aroma is a slight malt with a strong citrus floral nose like a mild IPA.
Flavor is medium floral front with a bit of roasted malt behind it(just a hint)
no real after taste pretty clean. pretty good for and American style pale ale but would be weak and watered down for a and IPA so good for it’s style.

On Tap at the Brewery
Amarillo Hopping makes its presence well known in this deep amber Pale Ale. Small head continually refreshed all the way to the bottom of the pint. Crystal malts gives a middle sweetish point, but this beer is really bracketed by the orangey citrusy hops that start and finish on the palate.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bordering between red and amber in colour with a thick foamy cap. Smells of citrus, pine and carmalized sugar. Some roasty malt and piney hop flavour with a good punch of bitterness at the end.
