3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Snallygaster, DC on October 13th, 2012. Another I finally got to try. A nice amount of hop flavor and nose, but good balance and would be enjoyable. Now I need to find it cheaper than the $15!! a six pack the store near me was offering it at.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On cask at Mr. Goodbar in Buffalo, NY. Oh my, this is tasty. Super citrusy...smells distinctly like orange peel with a hint of grapefruit. A friend says he hates grapefruit but this smells superb. Really light a big hop wallop. Great taste and depth of flavor given the low ABV. A home run for Lagunitas for sure.

Pours a clear yellow on tap with thin white head. Aroma of lemon and orange with a sweet fruitiness. Taste follows, like a sweet soapy citrus flavor. Meh, not for me.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. bottle from my buddies Mike and Rachel- thanks for letting me steal this one from your fridge! Pours a clear, bright, pale gold with a small white head and lots of bubbles. The aroma begins with a burst of lemon citrus, then shows grass and herbs, and some balancing pale malts. The flavor is equally bright and lemony, with grass, herbs, and pale malts. Light-bodied, with medium-high carbonation and a crisp, dry, almost tart mouthfeel. Really nice session APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle; poured a clear dull gold with a whitish head. Aroma was funky hoppy. Pine, earth, stank, citrus and Forrest. Light palate, lot of hops that linger off and on. Aggressive, but not great flavor.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear light yellow body with a tall, long lasting white head.
Fresh Spruce aroma.
The flavor carries light resiny bitterness with a supportive sweetness. Light bodied without seeming watery. The best of these session pale ales that I’ve tried so far.
