Iím not sure how I managed to get my hands on a Summer Ale in the middle of Winter, but here it is. Pretty good, not great, but still a very nice Wheat Beer/American Pale Ale.

An American Pale Wheat Ale. It is not as great as I hoped, but it was still a far above average beer.
Earlier Rating: 7/21/2013 Total Score: 2.4
Has a strange peach flavor to it. Good, but not one of the best APAís you will find.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
32 oz growler- Pours lightly hazy golden with a large white head. Aroma is sweet, fruity, nice tropical mango, getting hops, which surprises me for the low ibuís. The taste is easy drinking, mango and orange and other tropical fruitiness, lightly dry finish, very light hops, but are there. This would be a perfect session beer, might have a new camping beer!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than thirty seconds leaving some messy lacing sliding into the beer.
The smell had a big sweet burst of tropical goodness flowing into floral and sweet grassy qualities.
The taste was mainly sweet with barely any bitterness. Tropical fruits really dominate and allowing a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs fairly smooth and sweet somewhat candy - like to semi-creaminess runs along my tongue.
Overall, APA or APWA, Iím thinking this is an APA, as I donít get any wheat bite anywhere. Still a delicious beer Iíd probably come back to preferably in the Summer.

UPDATED: OCT 17, 2015 This poured a clear, deep yellow with a bright white one-finger head and nice lace. Strong citrus and floral aromas. Tropical citrus hop flavors up front with some grassiness in the back and hop bitterness throughout. Medium body, lively carbonation, soft mouthfeel and a lingering grapefruit finish.

Can from Medford TJís. Nice sweet citrus hop aroma that isnít IPA overwhelming. Cloudy orange in the glass w/light head. Clean crisp flavor that again is subdued making you want more. Solid Pale that is a bit on the big side (6.1%?) for a beer, which is a session style beer.

A tasty pake with a lovely golden graham cereal character. The hops are mellow and a little orange-y, with a touch of bitterness in the finish but not much at all, which I appreciate. Itís smooth and silky too. Iíd drink another.

Draft - Nice perfumy citrus and some tropical fruit. Clearish gold with a rich white head. Tastes just as it smells but more muted. A bit boring but nice.
