3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at brewery: Slightly cloudy; apricot hue. Great texture. Rich malts have notes of powdered cocoa, sweet caramel, and toasty toffee. Grassy, earthy hops complement the malts wonderfully. Some lesser notes of fruit -dried apricots and sweet oranges. Surprisingly good APA.

Pint at the brewpub. Pours a clear copper with a solid white head. Aroma is typical APA with citrusy notes. Fairly assertive for the style. It’s a little musty in the flavor. There is commendable balance and decent hop quality on this.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Growler poured a clear golden amber with a lingering ring of amber foam. Aromas of carmel, earthiness and light spice. Palate was medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and lighjt spice with a crisp dry moderatly bitter lingering earthy finish. This is more of an English Pale in my opinion.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear, orange-golden body with a thick, creamy and frothy, finger-width, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is flowery, bright citrus and a lightly sweetened caramel. Flavor is solid. Enough caramels to balance a good amount of floral and piney, citrus hops. Finishes dry and crisp with a medium earthy bitterness and aftertaste with a light to medium, smooth, easy drinking body. Overall, a solid and flavorful pale ale. Good beer after a day on the slops.
