3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
650 ml bottle purchased @ Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover, NH. The color is a clear gold with an amber hue. Lasting retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is close to an IPA, big citrus and pine notes. The body is medium with a crisp finish that ends clean. No bottle date or code anywhere to be found but it must be a fresher bottle. This strattles the line of an IPA. Large bright hop profile. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Shaker pint draft at Tryst in Delray Beach, Florida. The pour is mostly clear copper golden with a ½ inch off white head. The aroma is fresh grass and lightly herbal hop along with a soft resin and a bit of grain cracker malt. The taste is the same balance of the nose - grass herbal resin hop with grain cracker malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a dry grass finish along with some mineral and earth. Solid, worked nice with the tacos I was eating.

On tap at Brunzies. Mild grassy and dank hop aroma, a bit of sweetness. Deep golden amber clear with thin white head. Medium-heavy body with medium carbonation. Starts moderately sweet with big hop flavor and hop bitterness. Finish is smooth, sweet and after is lingering bitterness.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Belmont. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big nose dominated by marmalade, some lemons. A smooth beer, medium bitterness, grainy, a bit of lemon zest, orange peel, floral at times, resinous hops, tea-like. Quite drinkable and good. Lots of green leafy hop flavors.

Love this pale ale from green flash. Bitter and hoppy. Typical west coast pale easy to drink. Had at home

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at CBB’s 2nd anniversary event. It pours a deep copper gold with a substantial head of foam. Rich biscuit malts plus good pine + herbal bitterness. Smooth bodied but undercarbed, they were having problems with the regulator or something. The taste is one dimensional bitter pine. Kind of boring.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Second full bottle of the day (TGIF!) after Green Flash - Palate Wrecker. Deliciously hoppy but more reserved than the previous bottle on the citrus notes. Still very delicious! Definitely a hop head, IPA lovin’ yes from me even though it’s a pale ale not a full on IPA.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle. Pleasant if standard visuals, shiny, still and amber, the head is solid and white. Fun little aroma, too ... fresh and lightly citric, but not dominating in any way. Drinks with superbly exceptional balance ... firm but light malt backdrop, then a rollicking fresh hop blend that really makes this beer good. Just a twitch of fresh mown grass in the very finish. Excellent. (#5556, 6/16/2013)

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber. Clear golden orange pour. Thin head leaves some spotty lacing. Aroma is grassy hops with some light citrus. Taste is rather dry with a nice bitterness. Oily hops, some grapefruit, some lemon zest, and a just a touch of sweet malt. Crisp & clean finish. This blurs the line with a West Coast IPA. Very drinkable ABV.
