3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz can. Pours a hazy unfiltered darker golden with a bit of a orange tint, loose head white head. Sweeter caramel, piney citrus, but then there is this slight off putting faint vegital metallic twang, doughy biscuit malt. As it warms, the twang starts to fade a bit and more sugary sweetness shows. Fuller body feel. Doughy malt and citrus laced pine, fairly sweet throughout with a bitter astringent finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From can. Orange amber color, with a bit of sediment floating near bottom of glass. Aroma of woody resin, pine, some citrus. Flavor is hop-forward, with more notes of pine and citrus. Finishes with some bitterness, but mostly balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Big piney hop aroma. Medium bodied. Good hop character for a pale ale, but good balance. Good.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Can - pours out cloudy copper with many suspended particles floating - appears to be yeast? Once you get past the visual, the nose is strong piney hop. Taste is big on hop with a bitter undertone.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a super hazy golden-orange with a thick, frothy, pale head. Aroma brings honey and caramel tones, followed by mild pine and citrus notes. Flavor is slightly sweet and malty, balanced by bright, hoppy pine and blood orange. Moderately bitter, lightly spicy rye finish. True to the NW pale ale style.

16 oz can. Nice citrus, pine aroma. Like the rye spicyness balance to the hop flavor. Well done.
