3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle via trade with fidelis83- thanks again, Jeremiah! Pours a somewhat cloudy orange-gold color with a finger-thick off-white head that laces the glass with its rocky, creamy texture. Aroma of pale malts, sugar, honey, hops, and something Iím having trouble placing. Sweet, though. Flavor has more hops than the nose, along with a lot more pale and caramel malts, paper, grass, nectar, and honey. Light-medium bodied, with above average carbonation and a malty mouthfeel. Lingering bitter finish despite the sweetness of this. Very nice APA, and itís held up well even though itís going on a year old.

bottle thanks to bhensonb. poured goldish with a fairly decent white head. aroma was dominate malt, followed by some fruity notes, and a touch of pine. flavor was a grassy/pine hop presence and what seems to be a little citrus. body was medium-heavy with low carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden color. Aroma is of malts, centenial hops, honey, and a little floral. Palate is not too carbonated which makes me wonder if it is a little flat. Flavors include malts, hops, citrus, and itís a little bitter. Leaves a rather flat malt finish.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear golden amber with a fading white head... Aroma and flavor profiles are a bit maltier than i would expect from a west coast pale ale, the beer is a bit old... Creamy malty body, a touch of the orange lagunitas flavor... decent...
