Had the sampler of this at the brewery. Came amber in color with no head. Citrus aroma that reminded me of their wheat. Very smooth for a pale ale. I was pleasantly surprised.

On tap at Golden Valley Brewery. Copper coloured. Light hop in the mouth and strong, over-hopped bitterness in the finish. Slight citrus also. Definitely the best one here, but not worth purchasing.

Slightly hazy yellow gold, strong thick white head. Sweet grassy aroma, like wheatgrass juice and hibiscus. Little cardboard, also tastes like the way new carpet smells. Strange. Tingly on the palate, finishes bubbly and odd with lemon juice.

Larger hop profile than many pale ales. Not quite buttery like an extra, but enough mixture or styles. Earthier hops.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. A mild American Pale Ale. Light caramel background with a mild hoppy profile throughout. Nothing stands out with this brew.

Another bottle shared on the 4th- Slight hazy amber with little head. Low carbonation, light hops on the nose. Thin, grassy mild and mellow.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A very mellow, smooth and light tasting pale ale. Very well balanced with alot of citrus notes, and a bit of a soapy finish.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Brewed in the USA...... 4th of July bash. Pours a hazy yellowish color with zero head. Aroma of citrus, mild hops, and caramel. Taste of grass, very mild hops and malts. The mouthfeel is thin and kind of soapy, very strange?

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bad bottle? Perhaps. Never has a beer looked so good and tasted so goddamn bad. Sour, yeasty, and excessively tart all woven into a beautiful hazy golden body with a mountainous, white fluffy head. Quality control in dire need.
