4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a medium orange-amber with a one finger white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, grass, sweet malts, and caramel. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium finish. Overall, a very nice APA.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
650 ml bottle from Picadilly. Best by 12-29-13. Pours a translucent copper color with a medium white head that has ample sticky lacing and fair retention. The aroma is somewhat mild with musty citrus and chlorophyll . The taste, unlike the nose, is very robust with grapefruit, grass, melons and limes. The palate is full and smooth with soft carbonation. Finishes short and clean. Overall: Loved it, but at 8.99 per bottle I consider it a poor value for the money. Surely there must be a way to get fresh hop ales to my table without gouging my wallet.

On tap at an outdoor fresh hop festival. Dank smell on the aromas - kind of mutes the smells from the individual hops. Drinks well and bitter.

Aroma- Really great hoppy aroma, Grass and pine really stick out.
Appearance- Pale Golden color with lots of head.
Taste- Mild bitterness not a lot lot of strong flavor at all, just a very drinkable beer.
Palate- I’d say light to medium bodied, and very refreshing.
Overall- A very good beer the taste isn’t as big as the nose which was a little disappointing but if you take it for what it is, a refreshing hoppy pale ale, it’s a damn good beer.

Pretty sturdy malt backbone makes a great canvas for the soft, melon and pear brought by the fresh hops. Really well balanced stuff.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a fairly clear golden copper with a thick khaki head that settles to a larger bubbled ring of foam and leaves plenty of clingy, intricate lace. Nose involves a fresh hop bouquet of floral notes, pine, some spice, some tropical fruit, all with a lighter honey malt backdrop. Fairly sweet, quite bitter. Fair action, oily, creamy, medium bodied, with a long green hop bitter finish. A nice fresh hop pale, lots to showcase, and very drinkable.
