bottle. pours an attractive deep orange. aroma was a little light one would think a "generous amount of cascade hops" might show up here. Slightly sweet very mild hop aroma. Nice medium creamy mouthfeel. Light hop presence & decent malt balance. Follows up with a strange metallic aftertaste. decent. much better than the other two Florida beer company offerings

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one came in my beer club. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a large orange-white head. The aroma was faint fruity and piney hops. The flavor was sour, nutty and earthy with faint tart and fruity hops and a sour nutty finish. Indistinct.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
12oz from a beer club. Very dry pale ale, so dry itís almost ashy (if that makes any sense). Iím not sure why this is labeled a kolsch, since it doesnít taste like one and the brewery proudly advertises it as an APA. Regardless, itís not very good. Bitter without character, not too much in the way of malts (and consequently, balance). A big pass.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle courtesy of a gift from Colorado; copper in color with not much head. Aroma was light and malty; flavor was much of the same. Sweet and bready. Not much hopping; tasted a bit like apple juice. From my experience with this brewery, they need to be a bit more generous with their hopping.

I canít find a lot of notes to go with this rating, but Iíve got it down as a pretty mediocre pale ale.
**Just submitted a photo for this one, as it was missing one.

Pour is a bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is of slight hops but nothing outstanding. Flavor is again slight hops but very watery and bland otherwise. This is nothing great and nothing to be recommened.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This would beer my favorite summer beer if I could get it locally. It has a nice mild aroma of hops with some malt too. Flavor is mildly bitter with a nice hop presence. Very easy to drink on a hot summer afternoon.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
bottle. pours a deep golden with very little head... nice citrus aroma - almost orange like. a bit of hops in the nose as well. This beer has a great overall flavor with the bitterness coming through from start to finish. Pretty ordinary on the palate... overall a very good enjoyable session beer... I completely disagree with the overall low percentile that the rate beerians have given it.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange-amber body with a half-inch thick white head which damn good retention. Aroma had a strong honey presence and a mild hop present. Flavor was very similar. I would have liked a little more hop bitterness to this beer but there was enough to balance out the honey notes. Good session beer. Full bodied though.
