3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle courtesy of Hophead22 -- thanks.
Didn’t realize this was such a seldom-rated beer when I tried it -- interesting! Thanks for the ultra-local hookup.
Pours a nice copper with a foamy near-white head. Good citrus aroma, rich caramel malts coming through as well. Very nice. A bit of skunkiness in there too, unfortunately, but still, pretty impressive. Flavor is more non-descript. Yep, a pretty nice APA leaning toward amber ale.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Italian bread and a little yellow fruit aroma. Flavor is not so hot; cardboard, light butter, dried oregano hops. This beer kinda sucks.

Good stuff this. Clean modern PA with an excellent cut of grassy minerally zingy hops. Not heavy dumb or sweet, just ultra refreshing. Really hit the spot.

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 aren’t in FL. I originally rated this as the IPA. From my notes, I didn’t think that there was any way this was just a Pale. Impressive.

Bottled sample. Golden color, stable head, a nice soft flavor, nothing overdone. Some hops on initial drink, mellows alot, with malt coming through as well, nice balance, some pine, grass, pepper. Good one!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light orange color with a decent frothy head. Light hoppy aroma. Nothing too overpowering. Sweet tangy after thought as well. Dry, hoppy finish. Nice balance between the grapefruit and the hops. Decent beer, but I would still go with their IPA.

Light and smooth. Highly drinkable. Really needs to notch up the flavor though. It’s good for what it is, but it could be so much more.
