Growler shared by Sparky27...thanks Eric!!! Pretty solid Pale that impressed the more I drank (is that surprising, or expected???). RIch copper pour with a 1/4 inch fluffy white head. Aroma is caramel, malt, and a hint of bright citrus. Flavor is a nice balance of malt and hops...toffee, grapefruit, and sap. Medium mouthfeel. Solid...glad I had a chance to try this.

Very nice version of the style. Pours pale amber with a small head. The aroma has a malt base with a hint of citrus and pine. The flavor follows with a very nice balance. Very easy drinking.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Nice amber brown pour full off white head nice lacing and strings of visible carbonation. Palate is well coated well carbonated lively. Lighter than expected aroma some bitterness a bit grassy. Flavor is quite a drying lingering bitterness without much else to it like sucking on a grapefruit sitting on a pinetree without the sweetness. Not enjoyed.

Can shared by MrPickles...thanks Andy! - Pours clear amber with a thin white head. Light herbal/menthol hops, a bit of sour grain, doughy yeast. Taste is about the same, herbal/menthol hops come through on the finish, with pale dry malt throughout. A bit of spicing and a thin effervescent body.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a can received from pepsiedcan. Thanks! The beer pours a lighter copper color with a nice white head of sticky foam. The aroma is kind of grassy and herbal, while remaining somewhat sweet. The taste is grassy bitterness at first, but that moves on toward a subtle sweetness in the finish. I expected much less.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Corkscrew in Urbana, IL. Pours a copper amber with an off white head. Typical aroma of caramelly malts, ale esters, and citrus hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Pale caramel malt backdrop countered by moderate grapfruit bitterness. Similar to SNPA, but not quite as refined and much drier on the finish.
