3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Earthy aroma, with a hint of pine. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a white cap of foam. A touch of tropical fruit at the beginning, fading to an earthy hop finish. Light bodied, easy drinking, not a bad Pale Ale.

Bottle from Bottle Baron. Hazy orange body with a thick white head. Steady carbonation. Good lacing. Aroma of perfumed hops, flower petals and marmalade. Flavour of tangerine peel, caramel and earthy hops. Medium body with an oily texture. Soft fizz. A tasty, hop-forward American Pale Ale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not bad, but the hoppiness is a little overstate. Pours amber/orange with average head and carbonation. Malt and mild citrus on the nose, with just a little more citrus and grass in the finish of the taste.

Draft. Pours a dark golden / Amber color with an ample frothy head. Lots of messy lacing left behind after a few sips. Smells wonderful: citrus, grapefruit, tropical fruit. Taste has lots of grapefruit, citrus, some Juicy fruit. A moderate bitterness. Carbonation is a touch soft; finishes light to moderately bitter, some grapefruit lasts to the end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This is a pretty decent IPA. It’s clear golden orange w/ a foamy head. It’s got a mix of citrus and floral hops in the nose--nice but nothing exceptional--and is relatively dry w/ solid bitterness. It’s medium bodied w/ carbonation a bit on the gentle side. I definitely wouldn’t mind pounding a few of these any afternoon of the week but I don’t see myself picking up over other options that are local to me.
