3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22oz btl. Pours light clear copper with a huge frothy white head. The aroma of grassy hops is so strong that as I crack the cap a foot from my face I get a huge oily whiff of hops and citrus. A fresh fruity start with some subtle sweet malt that builds into a crisp and refreshing hop bitterness. The finish has a sharp citiric quality. A great fresh hop brew.

22 oz bottle from Greens....moderate hop and light yeat aroma. Frothy head that recedes slowly. Fresh citrus, grassy hop flavor backed up by a very nice caramel malt undertones. Thin mouthfeel but a very tasty bitter dryfinish. Another great offering to the Beer Gods from GDBC.

Pours a glowing hazy orange. Thin white head. Sticky hop aroma. Citrus flavors up front, followed by woodsy floral hops on the back end. Not as sweet as the aroma had me think it would be. Definitely brewed to be a vessel for hops, the malt isn’t that strong. I was expecting this great divide beer to push the Pale Ale a bit more to the IPA class, but they reel it in a bit and come off with a nicely balanced american pale. Very true to the style.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a light cooper with a slightly off white one finger head. The initial aroma is very nice and almost sweet. The taste showed a moderate hop character but the balance off of the malt was well done. A solid overall APA, better than last year’s effort from memory.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
I didn’t think this was as spectacular as most do. There was a filtered amber body with very thick dimpled white head. There was a lot of citrus on the nose mostly grapefruit, but it was not as stellar as many of the other Am. Pale Ales you see.

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.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber pour. Orange amber color with a light white head. The aroma is of wet hop, quite mild. The taste is smooth and hoppy; not very full bodied, finishes dry. Overall the beer is quite hoppy, but manageable.

Bottle. A great hoppy aroma spewed from the bottle with a fruity and citrus smell. Bitter hop flavor with a light earthy taste. Awesome, even with the low IBUs.
