3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This is a really good pale ale. Looks and smells like what you would expect, maybe a little more hop-forward in the nose, but the flavor is outstanding. The real trick here is that they’ve managed to push the upper limits of hoppy bitterness for the style without sacrificing the balance and drinkability I want from a pale ale. Bitter, clean, and refreshing. Excellent brew.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz can. Light amber pour with a slightly tan head that fades to a nice ring around the glass. Earthy citrus with some light resin, fairly bitter, with a moderate+ carbonation, moderate body, becomes dry with more pine and a fairly grainy malt character as things finish up.

On tap at the brewery. Hazy gold pour, white head with lots of nice lacing. It’s a good, clean pale ale with a hop bite at the end. Kind of classic to the style. Glad to see this place in our old neighborhood.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This was on tap and poured into a mug.
The appearance was a nice looking hazy golden orange to amber color with a bar pour’s kind of slim white head that dissipated within about thirty seconds. A light stringy lacing settles around the glass.
The smell had a sweet and lightly spiced semi-peppery aroma running under a sweet maltiness.
The taste pretty much copied the smell and carried a slight spice into the aftertaste and finish.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and good for the style and for me.
Overall, I say this was a pretty nice APA that I would definitely have again.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shared 12 oz. cans, poured to snifters showing a cloudy, orangey gold color, with a presentable head of soft white foam, and spots & streaks of lacing. The nose started with some basement dankness, then earthiness & pulp, with maybe a bit of citrus as orange. Light to medium bodied, the taste provided a very lingering, earthy, rind-like, and dry hop bitterness propelled by lively carbonation. Not enough mellowing malt to take the edge off.
