3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Picked this up at the Whole Foods/ Los Altos, sweet beer selection. I am biased, I like Full Sail, they were one of the first micro’s back in the day and I respect them for the staying power. This is quite a drinkable beer, hoppy, but very smooth and malty mellow on the finish. At 6%, this is a poundable all day beer with some strong flavors, good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
22 oz. bottle. Transparent gold color in the glass, large bubbles, thin head. Aggressive hoppy aroma with notes of orange rind and green apple. The flavor is a full-on hops assault. It hits your tongue tingling and provides an explosion of bitterness, followed by a brief moment of malt sweetness, and then a long aftertaste of hops. Grapefruit and lemon are there, but overall the hops seem more grassy. It really tastes "green." Mouthfeel is a bit thin, with carbonation that could be softer. Overall a very crisp and refreshing brew for warm weather that will completely satisfy most hopheads, but not recommended for those who seek balance in their brews.

Not terribly impressive. Some bitter on the taste, not particularly complex malt profile. finish is a let down.

Very nice floral and citrus aroma. Clear, light amber color with a very thin head. The taste is a standard pale ale and is quickly by an intensely bitter, hoppy finish. Not too shabby.

UPDATED: DEC 3, 2011 Nice yeasty, bready, hoppy aroma. Pours fairly cloudy, reminding me a lot of a hefeweizen. Taste is good, medium amount of hop. Head is pretty uniform. Creamy texture with medium carbonation. Finishes fqirly quickly. Overall, a nice offering.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2011 This is a great session beer. Well balanced APA clocking in at only 6%. Not lacking flavor or hops, however. Maybe a touch too citrus-y.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Shared a bomber at Max’s. Poured a hazy orange with a white head. Aroma is of citrus (oranges), pine, Lots of hoppiness on the palate along with the grain and bread. Medium bodied beer with a dry finish. Tried this beer because I loved the LTD lager series so much.

Bottle, pours a nice clear copper with a minimal white head and light lacing. Smells really good, floral and pineapple, like it’s gonna be a sweet one. Surprisingly, the flavor is barely there, as in any flavor. Also, a bit acidic. There is good bitterness in the finish and a so-so aftertaste, but it certainly doesn’t make up for the extremely bland taste.

12-ounce bottles in a pint glass. Typical great floral aroma, unfortunately is more bitter than most IPAs already are.

Golden color, sweet malty smell with a slight hop aroma too. Great bitter pale ale with a good malt and hop flavor.
