3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma is dominated by the Apollo hops. They mostly add a general bitterness with just a hint of citrus. There is also a a slight rustic flavor from somewhere. Not much malt, though a pleasing mild sweetness.
Color is a pretty copper/amber with a small off-white head.
Taste is a mild to moderate sweetness and a moderate bitterness.
Medium body; slightly slick texture; average carbonation; moderate to long bitter finish.
Overall comes across as a fairly pleasant IPA to me rather than a Pale Ale.

At Red Lion. Sad to see this get a low rating. Sure it isnít a hop explosion but it is rather good. Easy drinking but still with a lot of flavor. Serving: Bottle

bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy orange gold, very lively off white head. Soapy/powdery hop character, sweet caramel malts, bitter finish. Just ok.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear amber color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is citrus, lots of floral and some spice. Taste is well balanced with even bitter and sweetness--notes of citrus, toast, and floral. Palate is medium-bodied, very smooth texture, and a dry finish. One of the better APAs out there.

Pine forward, with citrus hops, caramel, apples and light toasted grains. Overall somewhat mild but nice flavors. Moderate hop bitterness. Carbonation and body fit nicely.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I have no access to this site as I write this and the labeling gives no indication of what type of ale this is. Fair enough. It pours an amber/orange body with some brown tones topped by a creamy eggshell head. The aroma that eventually seeps through the dense head has a caramel sweetness to it. Thereís a light earthiness and slight traces of zest, too. The flavor has the addition of toffee and a soft fruitiness, ending on a mildly bitter note. Not bad.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
bottle - This brew pours up a huge off-white head. Itís massively over-carbonated and smells like it. Thereís also a trace of indistinct malt and some off smelling funk. Not good. The flavor is bitter but not in a good way. Medium bodied. Bandaid character. The ample hops taste okay and surprisingly at this point itís not undrinkable, but it canít overcome distasteful signs of infection.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Thick orange-gold body, big off-white head. Mild peach, melon in the aroma. Has a hint of overcarbonation, maybe inching into infection...something Iíve experienced with this breweries bottles before. Almost has a dry brett finish. Not outright bad, just not that impressive either. Chewy, messy, undefined malts. I have little tolerance for breweries who sell infected beers, and the overall reflects this.
