3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear pale amber color with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Light-bodied with a mildly bitter citrusy hops character and notes of toasted malt and pine. The finish is crisp with a cedar wood and hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours clear light gold. Aroma is cereal and toasted malts, grapefruit, orange peel, and light floral notes. Flavor is a great balance of dry malts and grassy/floral hop character and some faint citrus notes. Light/medium body.

2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2015 From bottle to a tulip.
A: Pours a rich gold with an inch of craggy eggshell foam. A slight haze but maybe from chill. Average carbonation and very good head retention. Nice lacing also.
S: Pronounced citrus aroma. Lemon/orange more than the expected grapefruit. No malt scent that I can discern but the beer is very cold.
T: Taste is a sort of hollow lemon and toasted sourdough. Seems watery. Potential is there but disappointing actually. I know low ABV is an objective here, but this needs more malt body. A slight vegetal note becomes evident as it warms. Doesn’t help.
M: Very light in body as expected with more carbonation than shows in appearance. Average.
O: As much as I wanted to love this, I honestly can’t find much to recommend. This Ale looks good and smells delicious but the taste fails to live up to expectations.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours Golden, fairly clear into tulip. 1.4 inch head, small lacing. This tastes very close to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale. Must be the Cascade hops, which both brewers use. That’s good, because I love SN Pale ale. Drinking a little more, this comes across a little thin. I would interchange this with SN Pale Ale, except that SN Pale Ale is much more economical....

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Serving: Draft. It pours a clear gold with a frothy white head. Pleasant citrus and grass notes in the nose. Light pale malt notes up front with a solid hop bite. Not too aggressive, just about right. More citrus and grass in the finish. A nice little session brew.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Light orange-caramel malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet orange malt and mildly bitter citrus peel flavor. Okay but pretty mundane.

12oz bottle from Winslow’s in Greenville, N.C. Golden hue, hazy clarity (can see my fingers on the other side of the glass), with mostly diminishing white fizzy head. Excellent lacing. Strong citrus hop (grapefuit), light spice aromas. Strong bitter grapefruit and lemon up front with the same finish. Fizzy carbonation, dry on the palate.
