3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle from local grocery store. Pours a translucent brass color with a small white head that has fair retention. The aroma is soft and indistinct with mild grains, grass and a hint of melons. The flavor, unlike the nose, is fairly assertive, with complex citrus--I get oranges, mangoes and papaya. The malt base is bready and compliments the hops nicely. The palate is a bit on the lighter side which is appropriate for the style, and the carbonation is lively. Finishes short and dry. Overall: I’m impressed, this pale ale rocks.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a amber orange with a small off white with a little lacing. Aroma is of toasted malts, bready malts, citrus (grapefruit & orange) and a little pine. Taste is well balanced with toasted and bready malts, grapefruit & orange, some pine, and a little fruitiness. Has a medium-light body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a dry, well balaced moderate finish. Overall, a pretty decent pale that might be a little thin but is still tasty and refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney, catty aromas from a medium yellow body with a thin white head. Nice clean malt taste with balanced light hop bitterness which isn’t as strong as the aromas seemed to suggest. Finishes clean and slight sweet with an orange/citrus aftertaste. Easy drinking but tasty and interesting too.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Outstanding Pale Ale, not too bitter, smooth, excellent barley malt taste. Slight citrus. Spicy beginnings, barley kicks in nice malt barley aftertaste. So many pale ales dump in the bitters like grapefruit and don’t blend out the alcohol. This is a true pale ale. Hits the tongue better than first smell, first aroma not a good blend of citrus, barley and hops. After aroma through nose pleasant. Fresh, solid brewery upcoming.
