Nice medium style hop beer that isn’t overwhelmed with hops. Good selectoon if you’re looking for a hoppy but not too much beer.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a head of foamy white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated transparent yellow orange colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The nice aroma was musty and malt hop. The sharp crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and strongly tingly at the finish with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. The strong flavor contained notes of bitter mildly vinous and hops. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

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 isn’t 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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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. There’s 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.
