3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Quite light golden-amber with a decent head. What little aroma there is is light and grassy. This drinks with a definitive earthy feel, musty and dirty, yet light and easy drinking. Bring on a pulled pork samíich. (#3886, 4/21/2010)

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewery: Pours a transparent deep golden with a clingy-lacing froth of white head. Has a nice fresh grapefruity hoppy nose with some soft pale malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and light maltiness with good fresh hop presence before a crisp resiny finish. A nice APA.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft @ brewery. Nose is spicy, hop-forward, but not a lot there. Flavor starts with a nice, piney hop profile, transitioning quickly to slightly toasted biscuity malt. As it warmed, the sweetness of the malts started to overtake the balance somewhat, but altogether a highly quaffable tasty brew.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle; poured a clear golden type color; not great lighting so not really sure. Aroma was very bready and earthy, with some citrus and hops. Very northwestern hoppy for me in the nose. Flavor was very earthy and fairly bitter for the style. In all honesty, the flavor featured was one I really didnít dig. Not too good for me.

Served from a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Craig. Pour a nice golden orange hue. The flavors and aromas are pale malts with a slightly above average hop bunch. The hop flavors are well balanced and not bitter. A solid pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep yellow. Nose is pine and sweet malts. Some yeast. Flavor is a sharp pine resin bitterness, sweet smooth malts. Reminds me of pliny at times. Very good Pale. Insanely drinkable. This could be my go to pale ... to bad they arenít in FL. I originally rated this as the IPA. From my notes, I didnít think that there was any way this was just a Pale. Impressive.
