2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Draft at pub. Amber with no head. Smooth, light on the palate. I can’t say anything bad about it, but it had nothing to distinguish it.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at the brewery. Clear light amber with small white head. ARoma is light and grainy with some earthy hops, dry, smells a little like a bitter. Tastes somewhat like one too with noble hops, chalk, medium bitterness, dry carame, meh. Light, watery body and light, active carbonation. A little off, but I could see this possibly being an english style pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy orange pour with a thin white head. Good aroma of piney and resinous hops. The flavor has the same piney and resinous hops but it’s defiinitely weaker than in the aroma, the finish is bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Harpers. Hazy deep orange body, medium/thick beige head. Light, biscuity aroma balanced by citrusy hops. Bready, biscuity body with moderate citrusy hops, well-balanced, becoming more bitter over time. Medium-bodied. A solid APA not pushing any boundaries.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 26, 2004 A well balanced and tame pale ale. Some hop aroma with some citrus notes, but no dry hops. Nice clean malt flavor and drinkable body. Almost clear deep amber color. Overall a nice pale ale.
Just had a growler for the holiday, and the aroma was fabulous. Hoppy and malty, with citrus tones. Excellent.
