4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. The appearance is a clear golden-orange color with a moderate off-white head which dissipates quickly and leaves little lacing. The aroma is fantastic assortment of pine and citrus scents with a hint of malt and caramel. The taste is heavier on the malt than the aroma was. It has good balance between malt and hops, though not has hoppy as I would prefer. Nice smooth feel which is richer than I expected. Overall, this is pretty good, though I’d hardly set it as the benchmark for American pale ales.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nice bready, malty aroma. Copper in color with a nice white head. Leaves nice lacing. Taste is really good, but this particular pale ale is more malty than hoppy. Pretty balanced though. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a pretty decent pale, will get again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Past expiry date, which I didn’t notice at the store. Resin and apple aroma. Caramel and raisin taste, with past-their-prime resiny c-hops. Mild bitter finish. Would try again fresh.

4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Top notch pale ale. Dark copper colored. Bread and malt with a little caramel note in the background in the aroma and taste. A very nice malt backbone without being overly sweet. Decent hop bitterness with some citrus notes. Finishes with taste of pine resin. Lingering bitterness.
Overall it’s exceptionally drinkable and flavorful for a pale ale. I’m not a huge fan of the style, preferring more hops, but this is a great beer.

Very tasty. Not one of the more hoppy pale ales, but still balanced between bitter and malt sweet. Super easy drinking.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Zero aroma. Little hop taste. Bitter. Very lackluster. Try it at the brewery when you take a tour. Otherwise there is no reason to grab this pale ever over other readily available pale ales...
