2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle to snifter. pours a very pale yellow color with no head. nose is lightly grassy with a touch of dankiness. taste is initially sweet and then reveals a bit of bitterness and a very grassy hop flavor. not much malt character, just a little note of honey. I don’t think I care for the hops profile. very lingering and unpleasant. Just doesn’t do it for me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle thanks to Jason. Pours a pale yellow out of the bottle with minimal head that fades quickly. Aromas are lemon, grass and bread. Sweet malt and some citrus up front followed by a lemony bitterness. Very light easy drinking pale ale but nothing special.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark golden-copper color with a smallish off-white head on it. Despite being a little warm (~55F), I don’t get a huge aroma off this; mostly I get a little straw and corn from the pilsner malts, without much from the hops. Taste is actually a little sweet to me, and reminds me much more a pilsner style than an APA. Not terribly interesting to me...

Had on draft at the brewery. Soft hop character, citrus, herbal, bready malt character, very lite beer for HotD. Not bad.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
I really enjoyed this. Hoppy aroma with subtleness. Unfiltered golden color or maybe it was just a little hazy. Good white head. Full body without being heavy or bloating. Most of their beers have a creamy smooth texture. Great blend of flavors with grapefruit and other citrus hops. Strong pilsner background with some grainy notes. Really good.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle pours a pale golden color without much head. Full hop flavors without anything too intense. So well balanced. My favorite APA.
