3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a translucent red-orange. Medium tan head. Nose is a weakened hop aroma. Seems fairly clean and grassy. Taste is hops but is crisp, almost lagerish. Little too much hops for that though. Smooth, almost non-existent, aftertaste. Fairly average, but not too bad.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured with a nice reddish-yellow cast and a small head, which laced really well. Hops are not as evident in the aroma as they are in the flavor, particularly as it warms. Oily new grass hoppiness made it a nice example of the style. Went really well with spicy green chile chicken dish.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Mild, slightly hoppy aroma. Clear to pale golden color. Not much there in the flavor department - drinkable, but not a top choice.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A really interesting beer. Both the flavor and the aroma changed while warming. The flavor held its own, but the aroma seemed to deteriorate. Lots of stuff in here to taste such as citrus and pine. Perhaps a bit of grapefruit as well. I liked the reddish hue but the flavor was the most enjoyable.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured a copper color with a small off white head. Mild hoppy aroma. Slightly hoppy watery taste and mouthfeel. Funky after taste of metallic vegetables. Nothing special here

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A decent APA for the session drinker. Piney hops notable in aroma and in the flavor, with a touch of citrus. Beer pours pale amber with a thin off-white head. Thin body. A good choice for "rushes" of the good beer fraternity.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not a robust head, but a nice lacing exists. Clear deep bronze beer with nice carbonation. This beer has an excellent flavor. Nice mildly bitter taste with a fresh minty finish. Overall, I really liked this crisp and very drinkable beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice Orange color. Thin lasting head. Citrus hop aroma. Malt flavor does not last over the hops. Seems a bit watery. OK beer, but I wouldn't go out of my way.
