4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Waxy amber with a thin white ring head. Aroma is good and strong with hop pininess. Palate is subdued compared to the aroma but very strong flavors of grapefruit peel and english malts come out. A bitchin’ brew. Full but sessionable and totally satisfying with a balabced strong hoppiness and weaker malt backbone. Not iver the top. Just right.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big thanks to Curtis for sending me this growler! Shared with the other Matt last week.
The beer is a copper / orange / amber hue, depending on where the light hits the glass. The liquid is very hazy, with nearly an inch of off white head that exhibits lasting retention.
The aroma is a blend of hops and malt, with light citrus.
The flavor is well balanced and enjoyable. This is a nice pale ale, and fresh tasting.
The body is light, but not thin, per se. The aftertaste leaves a lasting hop bitterness (positive) on the palate.
Overall, a nice, light beer. A good choice for warm weather. I would have this again.
Serving type: growler

2/24/12. On tap at the brewery during RBWG 2012. Clear golden pour with a small khaki head. Plain aroma of light caramel malt with a bit of grassy hops. Light flavor as well with a touch of caramel and grassy hops. Plain but drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewpub. Sampled with DarkBeerChick. Poured a dark amber body with some off-white head. Aromas of piney hops that’s fairly assertive. Some floral notes afterwards. Flavors of mostly piney/floral hops, lightly malty sweet (fairly balanced), grassy/floral hops in the end. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Not a bad choice for pizza on date night.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Moderately orange translucent pale with an off-white frothy head and sparse carbonation. Lightly sweet aroma. Balanced malt-hop flavor. Better than I expected. Easy drinking but still with a strong hop resence for a pale. Rocking lacing!
