3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Foamed a bit, huge towering out of the glass head, i was very proud in a way... Pours a hazy amber... Aroma of mildly fruity hops... Taste is a bit dry with some mild malts and some interesting but subdued hops... Medium bodied... Decent pale ale, not nearly as good as others...

Not a fan of Pale Ales, but this is one of the better examples of the style. Nice floral aroma, with lots of copper and citrus zest. Flavor is similar to an Alpha King-lite. Lots of hops and a wheat backbone. Somewhat weak, but with a metallic finish.

very carbonated...bottle cap almost flew off. huge white foamy head and a light honey color. sweetness of the dry hop is very noticeable in the aroma. some pineyness up front but other than that flavor is more balanced and less citrusy than the aroma suggests and the finish brought out a mild metallic flavor and also a bit of stringency.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thin head of fine white bubbles. Orange and citrusy aroma with some lemon and straw. Very dry and pasty palate. Like taking a mouthful of chalk. Some more orange flavors and loads of bitterness. Herbal bitterness with a bit of peanut skins. Bitter and dry finish. An ok IPA.

Pours a cloudy pale golden color with a small white head. The nose is citrus and honeysuckle with a nice sweetness in the back. Citrus follows through on the flavor with a nice bread dough. Finishes very crisp and clean with a refreshing hoppy bite.
