3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is an American pale ale w/ a strong emphasis on hops, even for the style. IT pours a slightly hazed orange golden w/ a small head of fine white bubbles. There is a slight touch of biscuit-like malt but this is really all about the hops, which is not a bad thing at all. It is juicy and full-flavored, esp. and finishes w/ just a touch of sweetness and citrus-rind bitterness. I have said it before and will say it again, I am really liking these dry, sub-5% ABV hop monsters, the thinking man’s IIPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma of ropey, resinous hops and honeydew melon. Light yellow, like a filtered wit. Starts bitter but quickly goes citrus sweet. The flavor of these light hoppy ales usually doesn’t follow through on the scent it seems. This is also very light bodied, while crisp enough to be refreshing and not a total wash. It’s good with dinner but if you like taking down a few beers of this strength you’d be better served by wheaty offerings.
