3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
341 ml bottle, bottled June 3, 2009, sampled 6/21/09. Golden amber colour with a mostly lasting creamy and frothy white head. Orange citrus, light pine, caramel, and floral aroma. Toasty and light caramel malt flavours with a pine, grapefruit, and orange pithy bitter finish. Light to medium bodied, smooth, firm, but quaffable mouthfeel. Like a little brother for Garrison ImPA - a lot of the same character in a more sessionable format.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
My Bottom Line:
Oranges, flowers and herbs are evoked throughout this Pale Ale, adding pizzazz to lightly caramelized cereals and an earthy hop aftertaste.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A mushroom-like head of foam laces all the way down the misty golden orange.
-Green peppercorns also appear in the hop bitterness.
-The smooth effervescence helps build a pleasant mouthfeel.
-This is not a fashionable Pale Ale these days, as it is not blond and made from super citrusy hops. However, it remains a very tasty and efficient Pale Ale for hopheads who don’t follow trends that much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle in Parrsboro. It pours hazy golden - orange with a decent white head. The nose is doughy, creamy, minerals, orange peel, apricot, toasted grass and light floral notes. The taste is crisp, bitter, minerals, peppery spice, bitter orange, waxy grapefruit, grassy bitterness, apricot, dough and cracker with a dry finish. Medium body, fine carbonation and foamy mouth-feel. Crisp, bitter and thirst quenching. Decent apa.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light orange copper body loads of lasting foamy white head and nice lacing. Metallic hoppy aroma, herbal. Taste is slightly bitter, biscuity, bitter aftertaste. Also a touch of a sweet fruitiness once it warms up. Not a bad APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rating #1053 - April 7, 2014 - #mondaynightbeers @RevolutionYeg, 8 oz on draught, 5.3%, Big golden pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is sweet piney, lemony, mild grassiness. Taste is a blast of citrusy sweetness, tempered by a decent punch of hoppy bitterness. Not unbelievably memorable, but a decent APA. Nice.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a clear copper color with average carbonation. One finger head kept minimal retention but laces well. Begins with sweet caramel tones which fade into citrus and finally dry hop tastes. Medium bitterness falling somewhere between an ESB and IPA.
