3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A fruity and flowery hop aroma to start off, with a subtle malt sweetness to back it up. Kind of hazy amber color, big pillowy head. Flavor is a pleasant blend of perfumy hops and light malts, with just a hint of hop bitterness coming through in the finish. Medium body. Good session beer, especially if you're sitting on the patio in Tempe enjoying a 70° February afternoon.

on tap at brewpub scottsdale: I enjoy this type of beer...this one wasnt your typical pale ale, hoppy character through and through nose and good control of overall bitterness, not too much, with a suttle malt overtone as the aftertaste...it took a while (half a pint) until i started tasting the malt. nice effort. easy to drink. nice brewpub. chicken fingers are excellent!

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Coppery gold color. Almost indiscernible hoppy bitter aroma. Fairly pleasant, sweet-bitter hoppiness. Too sweet for my taste. Not very complex. Good, accessible, but uninteresting.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle. This yellow orange ale poured with a nice one inch head that reduced down to a lasting quarter inch. The smell is sweet malt with floral hop odors. The taste is sweet with a good hop balance. The mouthfell and carbonation are very good with a slightly dry finish. A very refeshing brew. I'm happy to see beers of this quality being produced so close to home. I ve been to the Brewery a few times but that was back before I started rating. I think its time for a another visit.
