3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden body, stable frothy head. Mix of modern and classic hops, more floral and fragrant. Very drinkable, bitter yet not sharp. Very decent pale ale modern style, nice light alcohol warmth. (On tap at Craft Pride)

Solid Pale Ale. More hop forward than your traditional Pale. Has a lovely aroma, very slight bitterness. Very drinkable.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden with a thick foamy white head. The aroma is incredible with big fresh hop notes of floral cones and light grapefruit/grassy resin. Smells like picking hops on a farm. The flavor is a bit too pale and clean for its own good, featuring only minimal bitterness and minimal grassy and citrus rind tones, on a medium-light pale malt body. Actually finishes a little more piney and bitter.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a better than average pale ale. Not particularly balanced, but its hop heavy, slightly astringent profile is decent.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz cans from Central Market, 9/9/13
Aroma: The nose is light grassy hops, some grains, crystal malts, and herbal notes
Appearance: It pours an unclear gold-orange color with a frothy white heads and sticky lacing
Flavor: The hops come through more in the flavor, it is lightly sweet and medium bitter
Palate: The body is light-medium, with a nice, clean feel, soft carbonation, and a dry finish
I thought this was a pretty solid APA. It isn’t a standout in the style, but it is quite quaffable. This is a perfectly acceptable canned offering.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orange copper pour with medium eggshell head. Aroma is crisp hops. Piney. Bitterness hits you immediately drinking this beer and stays with you throughout. Finish is dry and bitter. It almost is more like a IPA than a Pale but it is refreshing nonetheless.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
355mL can thanks to t0rin0. Pours a clear orange with okay off white foam. Nose is citrus hops, cheese, potpourri. Taste is richer pine and oil, dry and bitter potpourri/floral hops. Dry and dusty palate though. Still, not bad. If one more brewery puts "Dog" anywhere on the label I will personally be opening up a brewery called "Dog City Brewing" to make use of the two most overused names in the industry. Open up your creative side!
