3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark Amber/copper color. Wonderful hop aroma. Nice and refreshing -- good hop presence, but not nearly as much as say, SNPA, Thick head that stays with the beer for most of the glass -- nice lacing. Overall very good, great with a barbecue, but pales in comparison to SNPA.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Golden with a medium off-white head. Scant aroma of citrus hops. A little thin on the palate, but otherwise it’s a decent pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
I poured this chilled from a bottle. There is virtually no head and little aroma. Mostly that of coriander seeds, pleasant but slight. A lovely golden color golden, crystal clear with delicate carbonation. It really quit gorgeous except for the lack of head. The flavor is nice surprise, Its well balanced; slight sweet out of gate followed immediately by a pleasant bitterness. The mouth feel is a little light but still nice and it has a nice finish. I think the new recipe worth trying.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good pale ale, sharp hops with a good bite. Light body and fades fairly fast on the palate.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A nice every day pale that is worth buying a six pack at least once a month. Good summer beer with a nice hop flavor that remains inspite of filtration.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light, malty aroma, thin head, very white. Light copper in appearance. Flowery flavor, very light. Slight aftertaste of hops. Smooth, not very carbonated. Underwhelming for a pale ale, lacks that characteristic hoppy bite.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A flat, low taste beer. Not much going on here. Flat start, flat finish and not a lot of flavor. Crisp enough though, not one of my favorites.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, golden honey pour. Straightforward hoppy and malty pale ale. Not too bad, I definitely enjoyed the half hour I had to wait while the ridiculous head subsided. I swear I ladled 15 oz of foam out of that glass. More and grosser foam than Duvel. Try it when you have a free afternoon.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
medium amber color, slightly hazy, minimal head. Smells nice - of hops and fruits/grapes... Well-balanced, but subdued taste for a pale ale. Pretty poor/light mouth feel and seemed to get considerably staler and boring as I finished it off.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured a nice amber with a quickly dissipating head. Very little esters in the aroma, mostly straight pacific northwest hops. Flavor was well balanced but not really complex in the least. A decent beer with little exciting going on.
