Bottle. Pours a cloudy yellow with a big white head. Aroma is of light sweet malt, some citrus hops. Taste is sweet but the hops are all pretty light. The hops are citrusy and not all that present. Some other unexpected grain notes are also noticable. Not sure of the age of the bottle but, this one may have been on the shelf too long. Body is medium and the finish is light. Overall an okay brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a murky yellow-amber with a crazy big fluffy white head that lingers too long. Sweet aroma, with lemon peel, malt, yeast, and citrus hops. Taste is crisp, of citrus hops, preserved lemons, yeast, and malt. Lingering crisp bitterness that ends watery. Tasty, but I think it’s sat around a bit too long.

Decent Pale Ale. There was nothing very notable here, but it does go down smooth and drinkable. Could be a good session beer.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light floral aroma. Hazy, light golden color with off-white head. Light bodied, thin, malty sweetness with a tinge of citrus. Lightly carbonated with an abrupt sweet finish. Highly drinkable, albeit thin, and seemingly light on the hops for a pale ale. I was expecting more.

pours pale yellow-orange with thin lacing white head, floral hop aromas and a potent hoppy taste with a crisp bite and mild bitter finish, overall drinkable and not offensive in any way.

Pours light orange amber with an off white head. Aroma is citrusy, slightly earthy hop, with a little bit of caramel. Flavor is full of fresh citrus and tropical fruit hop flavor. Good stuff.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a thin white head. Aroma is slight malt with a hint of citrus hops. Taste is citrus with a mildly bitter hop aftertaste. Mouthfeel is a little on the watery side. Not a bad pale ale but not as hoppy as I like.

Served on draft at TGI Fridays. Light orange in color, no head, no lacing. Orange, citrus hops in the nose, light bready malt aroma. Clean, effervescent, refreshing on the palate, with a lasting bitter and earthy finish. I enjoyed the orange, citrus hops. It reminded me of a less hoppy version of the Centennial IPA. Worth drinking again.
