3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
16 oz can, thanks Ryan. Lightly hazy amber-yellow; frothy white head; huge lacing. Aroma grapefruit, pineapple, musty florals, bread, pepper. Flavor is similar to aroma, and in addition there might be a hint of pine resin in here as well; finish is pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium and closer to frothy than to fizzy. Glad that this is a well-regarded beer without being over-the-top bitter; it’s actually quite a lot better balanced and a lot less bitter than I’d expected. This is certainly no 99th percentile beer overall, but a top example in the style for sure.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from Chicago, consumed in Seattle. Almost clear yellow-gold, small soapy foam. Fresh, but also quite biscuit malty. Pale, drying bitter. Tart bitter hop but robust cardboard malt body. Drying bitter finish. Robust but not a great profile.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dense creamy white head, Apple juice appearance, Christmas tree aroma, lingering bitterness, and very satisfying.
I just came back from a two mile hike and wolf this 5.2v down and wanted another but bought this one can as a trial based on high reviews from trusted beer aficionados.

Very good apa. Dank pone and bright citrus. A little heavy for a session, but definitely biting at the heals of ZD and Sue

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent level of hopping - not too much,not too little. Makes a good session IPA although the ABV might be pushing it for that purpose. Pine with some grassy and citrus against a bready malt in a medium body. Nice one.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Un mot : savon. Un espèce d’arôme de savon liquide transpire à la fois du nez et de la bouche. Pas très amer, pas très houblonné, avec une grosse buvabilité. Un certain manque de quelque chose rend cette bière correcte, mais peut-être pas mémorable.

A very nice pale ale. A good hop to the aroma. This is a great pale ale. The hops are bitter and lasting but you can still tell this doesn’t have the alcohol of an IPA. Top notch.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Toronado San Diego, 22.4.16. Clear amber. Mango, some pines and then more tropical fruit (pineapple?) in the nose. Bitter, dry and passion fruit in the mouth. Medium-to-full body, dry and bitter finish.
