3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Toffee, grapefruit and evergreen nose. The flavor is a bit thin and leans toward the sweet side of balance, but offers nice, juicy PNW hops. Medium-bodied and lightly creamy with lively carbonation. Finishes gently bitter and dry. Very drinkable! I’d say it’s an English IPA, but the hops are all American. Reminiscent of an English IPA. How’s that? Thanks go out to Argo0 for sharing the bottles.

Competent pale ale, from recent WI trip. Went over quite nicely with lunch. Complex and very drinkable.

Actually a hoppier APA than most. Still pretty malty. Some decent flavors but nothing that amazing.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle @ home. I think I’ve had this one a few times but I haven’t ticket it yet, so now’s my chance. Hazy, reddish orange appearance with a big, fluffy, tan head. Rich piney, somewhat grapefruity, woody, herbal hoppy, inviting aroma. A bit chewy, toasty malty, rich piney, grapefruity, herbal hoppy flavor. Pretty tasty.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Beer of the month club. Slightly hazy amber color with a big frothy off white head. Pleasant floral and citric hops aroma with piney hint and a bit of caramelly malt. Flavor has light sweetish maltiness and quite a bit of hoppy bitterness, pretty grapefruity. Medium-bodied. A decent APA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample on tap at the Bridge in STL during RBSG. Mostly clear orange color. Thin off-white head. Leaves good dots and bits of lace. Looks good considering my 1 ounce sample size. Caramel malt, light spicy hop. Moderate sweet taste, light bitter. Light to medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. Decent pale ale, but nothing special.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Secret Santa. Orange body, small white head. Fairly prominent but moderate grapefruit in aroma and flavour, very light malt in the flavour. Average bordering on thin palate is acceptable. Nice hoppy pale ale, but lacks the complexity and oomph for the next level.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours golden with white head, aroma is hoppy and sweet. Taste up front is citrusy hops that goes right into malt sweetness, that is a bit overwhelming and is bitter at the end. Good IPA!

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2012 Smells of mild cascade hops, with some sweet lemon and mandarin orange. Taste is a bit hearty and
of sour orange peel. Spicy and thick, and an OK IPA.
