3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy orange with white head, aroma is grassy and floral hops. Taste up front is grassy and a bit of pine hops, with some biscuity sweetness that end with a slight hop bitterness. A good drinkable APA!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours orange with gold and tan highlights, a faint haziness (mostly brilliant though), and a thin white head that leaves beaten-egg-white-like lace on the glass. Aroma is full of bitter citrus, with notes of toasted bread and impressions of over-cooked fruitcake. Flavor starts bready and dry with touches of honey and bitter hops. Strong yet sublime bitter hop flavor - lightly vegetal, grapefruity - through to the finish. Finish is dry and bitter with hints of malt sweetness and light biscuity malts. Mouthfeel is briskly carbonated with medium body. Overall, a very dry pale ale - tasty and drinkable, but a little too dry for me - a hint more sweetness and/or malt character would have provided a little better balance. I think the hop character is a bit muted, too - it is very hoppy, but something feels restrained, like the hops weren’t picked at the peak of freshness or maybe I just expect more late hop character...
