Nothing bad but nothing exciting. Falls into the wasteland of costing more than micro’s but not as good as the crafts. Not a APA really but good enough to drink if its this or the Miller or Bud boys.

Clipper City Pale Ale has a slight hoppish aroma and pours an amber with a slight tan head. The beer is medium in body and has a slight hoppiness.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear, shimmering amber in the glass. Hopcit on the nose, but little else. An earthy hop bite, but not too much bitterness. Long on the palate. More hops tumble after the bite, resulting in a moderately bitter finish. Still, not my first choice for the style. Something metallic to this beer -- water?

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours gold-amber with a yellowish head. No malt or hop characters present in aroma, and this carries through to the flavor as well, except for a slight hint of bittering hops. Creamy on palate.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a golden color with a small white head. Malty aroma coupled with earthy hops. Flavor matches aroma with hops running through the length. A long mild biitter finish.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a golden bronze with a thin white head. Aroma is very subtle with a touch of English hops. Body is bittersweet, but mild and smooth. Not necessarily watery or thin, but very bland and uninteresting. Could definitely use more hops to be considered an APA in my book.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, clear gold pour. Weak aroma with some slight malts and some hops. Flavor was similar, weakish malt and light hops, and a bitter finish. Not terribly impressed.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Deep gold pour, with medium white head. Solid hops in the aroma, along with a solid malt presence. Smooth, crisp finish with a final hop kick at culmination. Solid stuff.

pours a gold color, with a white head. Has a hoppiness to it’s aroma and definitely with the taste. A nice beer.
