3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the bottle. Pours a golden straw with a nice inch or so of white head. The aroma is a light amount of spice and some traces of Cascadesque citrus. Taste is nice juicy sweet malt, a touch of caramel, some citrus from the hops and a lingering finish which is just an invitation for more. Medium bodied, not overpowering on the hop front, eminiently drinkable.

2.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a pale gold, modest white head. Aroma of sweet malt and lemon. Strong component of hop bitterness with weak contribution from malt to balance. Astringent, dry finish of hops. High alcohol, thin mouthfeel. Rough tasting, not very well balanced pale ale.

Not a bad brew, but nothing all that great. Very slight hoppiness in both aroma and taste. Itís subtle, but itís there. Not much else to say about it.

UPDATED: AUG 25, 2012 Light in color compared to some other pale ales and had a bit of a lager taste to it. Good pale ale not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours gold with a white head. Aroma is citrus and some floral undertones. Taste is sweet with a slight bitterness on the finish. Light mouth feel and very easy to drink after a day at the beach.

12 oz. Bottle. A standard pale ale. Sweet hop citrus scent, pale yellow/copper pour with a foamy head to film, full medium bodied slight sticky finishing palate, and a citrus hop dominated taste.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, thanks to Ranger Bob. Clear amber color, some bubbles on the side of the glass. Thin white head, fades to minimal, but leaves good lace. Good, lighter crisp carbonation. Dry texture. Nice balance of malts and hops - some orange flavor, hint of bitterness, although itís light. Decent, well-done pale ale.

Smells pretty good. Crisp hop. Looks only okay. A nice initial flavor thatís consistent but itís a bit metallic in the finish and the dryness fades quickly. Okay.
