4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Tap at lord hobo. Aggg, this is right up my alley. If this wasis readily available maybe i wouldnt dream of three floyds aeotora so much. Aroma is big potent juicy pineaplle, tangerines, dust with some bright herbal grassiness. Orange peels as well. Taste is dry bitter biting grapefruit hops balanced nicely by a passion fruit sweetness. Awesome, complex, well crafter tasty sessionable beer. A little too good.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of fbm115. Hazy golden, decent white head, oily lacing. Clean hop esters up front, light fruit and floral, not much else. Flavor much the same, with dusty, biscuit like background. Canít stress how clean this is. Perfect mouthfeel, soft and billowy, easy drink. Nothing blows your mind, but really solid throughout. Well done.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 17, 2011 750ml growler provided by Tom. Welcome to San Diego - thanks my friend... Pours a slightly transparent orangey brown and topped with a thin to medium soapy white head that quickly reduces... Crazy juicy tropical fruit aroma with peach, mango that is incredibly fresh. A bit of tea that adds some herbalness. Somewhat dank with a bit of grain at the very backend... Flavors take a slight step back At first but not by much. More herbal and tea-like in nature upfront which then moves on towards a mango and tropical fruit feel. Light to medium bodied with a nice crisp dry finish. Excellent. Could easily drink a ton of this stuff without a second thought.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at a Hill Farmstead event. Cloudy golden orange in color with a small but lasting bubbly eggshell head. Big Nelson Sauvin hop aroma, with big orange and earthiness. The flavor is great with biting hoppiness and a restrained pale malt base. Earthy and citrusy with slight pine sap notes. Medium bodied and very crisp with a long bitter finish. One hell of a pale ale overall.

Pour from a growler from a recent trade. Gold in color with a white top. Body is on the lighter side with appropriate carbonation. Flavors of orange, lemon, and citrus. Definitely get the Nelson hop flavor characteristics in a tasty way. Pretty easy to drink. Somewhat lean and straight forward in flavor. Really tasty and would love to have easy access to this beer.

Draft at Blind Tiger with Andrew. Pours a bright hazy orange with nice white head. Aroma is funky citrus fruits, light pine, and some cheese. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium - light carbonation with very strange funky cheese notes, citrus fruits, skunky weed.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at blind tiger. Almost a wine / hop aroma... Sophisticated and well balanced citrus and slight grainy funk. Not intense, more mellow but a nice relaxing beer to sip on... Interesting.

Bottle: The aroma consists of big pine, grapefruit, tropical fruits, and some herbal notes. It pours a hazy golden-orange with a small soapy white head that leaves some spotty lacing. The flavor starts with a quick dose of tropical fruits. The finish has moderate pine, mild grapefruit, and a hint of lemon. Itís medium bodied with mild carbonation and a somewhat soft mouthfeel. Overall, a very sessionable Pale Ale.
