3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pint on tap at Suttree’s High Gravity Tavern. This is a serious pale ale. Tons of grassy and citrusy hops adorn the aroma. Smells like an IPA. Even the heaviness of the palate makes me think IPA, but I’d say it’s lighter than Alpha King or Dale’s. The flavor is full of tasty hops with a grapefruity profile. The malt gives a little balance rounding this out to taste like a classic American ale. This is one easy drinking beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Flying Saucer 4th Anniversary party. This guy was all excited about this beer and made me think it was going to be something special, it was good but nothing to write home about (as I write at home about it). Has a glowing orange color. Aroma is clean with clear grassy hops. Flavor is a bit oily but clean and has a medium bitterness. Grassy and earthy hop-centric.

Pours reddish gold with small white head and moderate lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and hay. Taste is the best part of this beer. Citrus and floral hops, iced tea, and grapefruit. Alittle too much carbination and a slightly off aftertaste.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a draft into a pint glass at Station Tavern in San Diego (South Park), Calif. About a finger of head when I got it. Color was caramel orange. Bubble, frothy white lacing on the top. Lots of white film sticking to the sides. Both the lacing and film lasted throughout.
Smelled caramel pale notes. Also wheat and citrus hops. Got a mix of lemon, grapefruit and some orange/tangerine.
Tasted similar to the nose. Got caramel, lemon, orangeish hops and some ginger. Bitter aftertaste.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Slightly bitter finish.
I can’t believe it took me this long to rate this beer (although I think I’ve had it). Just a great American Pale Ale, although it did get a bit old towards the end. Good beer.
