3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found this on a pilgrimage to my hometown. Pretty good effort from what seems like a new brewery. Color was a bit dark for the style, but it didnít taste as malty as it looked. Aroma had a bit of earthy malt with a floral pine hop note. Flavor was well balance between malt presence and hop bite. It looked loaded with caramel malt (which I hate in an APA) but I was pleasantly surprised.

Draft at the village idiot, columbus. Copper pour, tastes like a dirty penny. Caramel malts, light ashtray. Not so good IMO

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from The Union. Clear orange red color. Little white head. Medium body. Lightly soft, kind of crisp lighter carbonation. More dry in the finish. Some caramel, lightly toasty, lightly spicy malt profile. Some piney, lightly citrusy hop. Moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Alright pale ale. A little too assertive. Not the smoothest pale, but I donít mind the bite.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I had tried a small sample at the brewery that afternoon, so was happy to get a shaker pint on draft at Bodega in Columbus, Ohio. The pour is a clear golden amber with not much of an off white head. The aroma is citrus fruit, grass, and a nice undertone of grass and mineral. The taste is a fresh cracker malt, along with a light bitter sweetness balanced with grass and grapefruit citrus hop. There is a hint of pine present as well, which adds depth to the flavor. The palate is medium bodied, with crisp carbonation and the mineral dry clean finish. Definitely my kind of beer, very tasty.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Tap at mellow mushroom. Good color pour and nice head. It ends there. Medium mouthfeel but awful pepper like taste cuts through and ruins it. My mouth feels raped. Hops don't shine thru at all. Strange undercurrent tastes too.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught at the Four Strings Release Party on 01/13/2012. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium off-white head that diminishes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter grapefruity hops character and notes of sweet malt underneath. The finish is hoppy with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Pretty straightforward APA overall.
