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.

12 oz bottle. (Whole Foods) Las Vegas, NV.
Clear yellow golden colour with a tiny white head.
Sweet hops and grainy malt in the aroma.
The flavour is sweet fruity hops, grainy malt and some sweetness. The hops doesn’t seem to be super fresh. Sweet and grainy APA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
[Tap] Darker golden pour with a small but lasting white head. Nice aromas of perfume, citrusy hops and some fresh pine. Notes of floral hops, grapefruit, lemongrass, honey and biscuits in the flavor. Medium in body. Crisp and clean hoppy finish. A nice beer that I could drink a lot of. Tasting notes from 8/2014.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy golden orange. Citrus aroma, light but decent amarillo hop. Citrus hop flavour but really lacking in what this could be in a single hop apa.

Middle of the road hoppy pale ale. Not bad but not overly complex with hints of citrus on a suble malt base. I like that it stays pretty balanced on the palette with, thankfully, a moderate bitter finish. Not exceptional, on one hand, yet nothing not to like on the other. Refreshing.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This brew is a hazy orange-amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light to medium-body with flavors of floral hops, citrus and roast malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a citrusy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

"A nice easy drinking and balanced pale. Blasts of citrus contasted with light bready and caramel. Light bodied, but with ample flavor and a surprising subtle complexity. Godd brew."

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pour. Golden with medium head and very nice lacing. Smooth light to medium body. Aroma and taste are very similar with a mild wheat and light spice. Very drinkable but not a very complex IPA.

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.

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.
