3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle purchased in Dublin, Ohio. Pours a clear golden color with a quickly dissipating head. The taste is clean, with a medium bitterness that is citrusy with several subtle notes. The mouth is thinner than I usually like, but here it works. The finish is surprisingly clean and abrupt. Well worth revisiting on a hot day.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cloudy light brassy gold pour. Inch of off white head that dissipates to leave spotty lacing. Nose is marigold, sweet malt, pine, and a little citrus. Light palate, crisp. Floral hops up front, with a little malt and lingering bitterness in the finish. A bit sweet for an APA. Ok.

Very solid pale. Sharp crisp clean hop flavors make this extremely solid and drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Pours a light amber body under minimal tan head. Aroma of malty caramel and bread. Flavors involve notes of pine-y hops, solid malt backbone, and citrus. Medium carbonation and medium body. A solid, drinkable pale ale; nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
No, no, no. That peachy imbalanced lemon and honey throat sweet flavour. Good resiny dryness and countering biscuit to finish. Fresh and peppery. It’s growing on me I admit. Lemon cake and pine nose. Soap, shimmering blonde body, frilled up lace. Prefer less throat sweet and more zest in my I/PAs.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Appearance: this beer pours all head like most nitrogen beers and then settles into a nice medium creamy white head, the beer is a cloudy average golden color
Aroma: grass, pine, citrus,
Taste: mild to moderate bitterness as soon as the full fluffy feel clears out of your mouth, citrus, no grain or sweetness
Palate: amazing full nitrogen fluffy mouthfeel, low bitter aftertaste,
Overall: this tasting is a nitro pour at the bar, tastes really delicious but I prefer a bit more bitterness, pretty sessionable

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Distinct almost perfume-esque floral aroma. Nice hop paleness that isn’t too bitter but has a definite pepper to it.
