3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden amber with a medium sized white head that deflates steadily. Big bright citrus on the nose, a touch of malt in the background. Medium bodied, soft malt, light hop notes coming through. Nothing overwhelming here which is rather nice actually. Very easy drinking, subtle, and clean. Slow bitterness on the finish, touches of grapefruit. I’m pleasantly surprised.

Pours clear gold with a thin white head. Aroma has light malty sweetness and tealike hops. Flavor is like sweet wort with a touch of late bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and the finish is like lingering grainy/bready wort.

Keg @ Washington Commons, Brooklyn. Pours deep amber orange with a small, bubbly white head. The nose is honey, elderflower and soft orange blossom sweetness. Fresh. The taste is more of the same. Plenty of sweet orange with a punchy sweet grain body. Nice, quite drinkable. Light body, active carbonation. Very nice on a hot day in the borough.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a nice amber color with brillant clarity.
A smallish white head sitting atop this lightly carbonated ale leaves behind some fine lacing.
The aromas of hops and malts are nicely balanced.
Hops have a slight citrus bouquet while the malts play even with s soft sweetness.
Taste is light and flavorful with the hops having a smooth citrus flavor not overpowering in the least. Malts have a smooth sweetness and also some toasted malts towards the end.
This smooth medium body ale is flavorful and easy drinking.

Pours a nice cloudy deep golden color with a thicker than normal white head. Aroma is of bready malts, hops, some lactic, and orange peels. Slightly heavier palate. Flavors present are hops, grain, malts, citrus, a little booze, and some bread. Leaves a slightly dry hop finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clean, refreshing pale ale. The nose could be a little stronger and I'd like to taste a bigger late hop addition, but overall a nice session beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
At the brewery: Pours a copper color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus hops and caramel malts. Taste is much the same. The hops, as I recall, were a bit lemony. Body was pretty nice. It was well-balanced and very sessionable. I was expecting something a little bit different, but I was pleasantly surprised.

12 oz bottle.
Very nice floral hop and honey malt aroma. The flavor is dry and hoppy as expected, but well balanced on its rich, malty chassis. Touches of pineapple and nuts, and a clean, crisp finish. A bit on the hops plus side. well done.
Not the same old same old. Distinct.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a large creamy white head that lingered and left decent lacing. The aroma was light pine and faint vague fruity and floral hops. The flavor was tangy and sweet caramel, bread, fruity hops, and floral hops. The finish was long, bready and hoppy. Moderately full bodied. Decent.
