I’m not the biggest fan of pale ales, but this one was quite nicely balanced between the bready and stronger hop flavors. Decent effervescence and smooth mouthfeel. Copper colored with a hoppy aroma as well. Nice drink overall.

As malty an IPA as you’ll find. This beer is defined by its bready backing more than its hop finish, which is understated.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ Flying Saucer St. Louis. Copper/orange pour with a white head. Caramel, pine, and grassy hops on the nose. Slightly herbal, lots of bread, and toasted malt as well. Flavor of grass, herbs, and piney, woody hops. Fairly bitter, but also a heavy caramel malt sweetness. Quite a bit of toast and mild apple.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pour is a very clear copper color with small white head that laces well on the glass. Moderate bread and crust malt aroma with some grassiness. Citrus hop up front with a tropical flavor to it and some underlying citrus. Drying clean finish. Very sessionable and dangerously drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer pours a clear darkish orange with a small white head that fades somewhat quickly, and the aroma blends slightly nutty malts with resin and grassy hops. The taste is mildly bitter with grassy hop flavor, which is balanced out by a slight sourness; the palate fuses a medium body, soft carbonation, slightly sticky texture, and a grassy finish that is only a little bitter.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
[Bottle] Amber in color, with a quickly receding fizzy foam head. Moderately hoppy aroma also features a decent malt backbone. Caramel sweetness and an average amount of floral hoppiness in the taste. Lingering malty sweetness is more dominant than the hop flavors. More of a hoppy amber ale in my mind. Tasting notes from 11/2011.

Just a really solid classic microbrew IPA. Citrus and pine nose with a crisp flavor that just tastes like "beer".

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear, copper pour with an off-white head. It has an floral and light pine hop aroma with a touch of caramel. The medium body has a slightly oily texture with lively carbonation. The bittersweet taste builds to a more bitter finish that slowly melts away. This is a good anytime beer.

It's good but not special. Really very average microbrew pale ale. Doesn't stand out.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pint at Three Kings. Despite the name this is better classified as an IPA. It is very much hop forward. The appearance is hazed and coppery with a one finger layer of white foam that has good retention. It is not quite a classic west coast IPA but is definitely in that genre. Citrus that has a bite to it from the hops and that dominates. Lesser malt. A nice beer.
