Pours a clear copper with a small off white head and leaves a bit of lace. Piney nose with a mild floral citrus undertone. Slightly thicker body than expected, mildly syrupy. Flavor is well rounded, with some mild sweet caramel up front and a piney battered finish.

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...

Very nice pale ale. Had it too long ago for a written review. Ratings are from a single number I gave it some time ago.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
I prefer to cook with this vs drink it. It’s got a very bitter profile, which isn’t something I tend to gravitate to anyway, but more than that, it just sits on the back of your tongue and annoys your taste buds. As a beer to cook with, though, the hoppiness works in its favor and doesn’t overpower whatever meat you use it with.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very pale, very clear thick white lace. Mild hop smell. Rich mouth flavor, lasting palate. Ok, but too strong flavor without the nose.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap@Great Lakes brewpub, Cleveland, USA. Light slightly bitter aroma of berries. Copper color with minimal white head. Clear liquid. Medium/light taste with citrucy malts, some pine and hops. Bit artificial with medium taste spectrum and medium aftertaste with hops and sweeter malts. Medium/light palate and medium carbonation. Overall a bit artificial but drinkable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at GABF 2015. In the tasting glass a hazy amber gold. Nose of light fruit with citrus. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is caramel malts with a good dose of citrus hops and some peach or other stone fruit nuances. Lightly bitter finish. Very easy drinking. Kind of wish for a pint of this one.

Bottle. Foggy amber pour. Thinnish white head with almost no lacing. Nose is pine, caramel, citrus. Medium body. Resinous hop, nice caramel malt, and a little peach pokes through. Finish is slightly sweet. Tasty old school APA.
