3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle to glass. Pours a clear light amber golden color with a frothy light tan head. Aroma is light floral fleshy fruit hops, a mild caramel sweetness. Flavor has a very mild bitter, women light caramel sweetness, not much fruity hop character. A little heavier than your typical pale ale, but still drinkable. Not too shabby.

Bomber from whole foods in Chadds Ford. Pours clear gold with a medium sized white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma has a mix of grassy hops, slight pine, a bit citric. Not very pungent. The taste has a medium bitterness, semi drying, a bit of a lemon and tart orange balance. It’s okay.

Sturdy, lasting little white head, decent lace too. Clear, copper colored brew. Nice little citrus nose with a slight grainy pale malt distortion. Medium bodied, lil chewy, nice carbo and a hint oily.Hoppy, citrus flavors up front, slightly dank and resiny, juicy too with a stone fruit and the dry malts backing and balancing it well.Dry finish, good bite, clean, grassy notes. Not really an IPA but hell their IPA has been handily retired and changed to a DIPA when it pretty much was a DIPA to begin with ! I love ya GF! Keep up the good work! Draft/growlered from statelineliquors.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Sierra Grille Northampton. Poured a light golden orange with a frothy white head in a pint glass. Big citrus aromas. More hops than an average pale but still falls firmly into the pale ale category. Biggest flavors are apricot and orange. Tasted very fresh and very crisp. One of the better pale ales I have had in some time.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Discount in Milwaukee. Pours a pale orange with a white head leaving many spots of lace. Aroma has a lot of grassy hops, with both citrus and fruit fruit. Taste begins quite hoppy bitter, with grapefruit and lemon zest, and then adds pineapple and some light sweet malts. Medium bodied and bone dry. Finishes mostly bitter and dry, with faint sweetness fighting through. Strongly hop-forward - very much following the West Coast/Imperial IPA lines for GF .... bitter and hoppy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Lunar Brewing Co., and dispensed to a shaker showing a hazed, golden color, with persistent, white & frothy head foam, and spiraling rings & spray of lacing. The nose was resin, lively grapefruit & orange, with a touch of sweetness. Medium bodied, with decent carbonation, the taste presented a moderate citrusy & astringent bitterness that was tempered by malt of equal intensity, resulting in a nicely balanced flavor. A tasty, spot on Pale.
