4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle. Pours orange/yellow with a nice creamy off white head. Aroma is quite nice, mostly hops and a touch of orange zest. Taste is a bit more mellow than the aroma, starts with strong floral hops, a touch of caramel and malt in the middle, fininshes dry and bitter with a touch of spice. Fairly thick for a pale ale, a bit of syrup is left behind. Damn good.

Tap @ Parkway. Clear copper pour with a white head leaving heavy lace. Smooth, medium, light-toast body and fairly balanced. Pleasant but not overpowering fresh hop aroma. Tad watery/lightweight in the finish. A bit down on the Fresh Hop list, but a solid APA.

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- Iíd say light to medium bodied, and very refreshing.
Overall- A very good beer the taste isnít as big as the nose which was a little disappointing but if you take it for what it is, a refreshing hoppy pale ale, itís a damn good beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours clear gold with a foamy white head. nose is moderately strong hops with a bit of apple sweetness behind it. the flavor is less hoppy than expected but quite well balanced between a pleasant malt and modest West Coast hops. finish is short and sticky. basically a session IPA, just higher alcohol.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Citrusy hop aroma of a ripened grapefruit makes your mouth water before you take your first sip. Great caramel malt to go with the refreshing hop bitterness in this medium bodied pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
on tap at kellyís. poured a clear amber with a medium off white head that hung out and laced very nicely. smells of sprucy hops with a grapefruit citrus mixed in, and a bit of caramel malt to back it up. taste has a deep hop flavor profile, like grapefruit growing from a pine tree, with a hint of bready malt. moderately bitter on the finish and a bit of a grainy mouthfeel, with a medium body and quite a bit of carbonation. i really dig the hop complexity.
