3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Grapefruit bitterness and floral hops stand out. Undertones of grainy bread, apples, pine and a moderate amount of caramel. Pleasantly bitter hop aftertaste with a crisp finish and good carbonation.

Bottle. Golden color. Thats a nice floral, citrus aroma. Pineapple too. Medium light bitterness. Bread and a bit pine. Average carbonation. A solid pale ale for sure.

Dark golden body, nicely cleared out for a pale ale. Very pleasant and present smooth hop mix of American citrus style, balanced with just enough biscuit malts. Fairly bitter, very cleanly fermented, spot on. Active fizz, drinks very well, especially with my freshly made sausage. Nice! (On tap at Easy Tiger Austin)

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. bottle: Appearance: small white head, good lacing, straw-golden color, appears to have some hazziness too it that it should not, maybe a mishandled bottle? Aroma: citrus, resin, spruce, hay, nuts. Palate: light body, thin feel, average carbonation, bitter and lasting finish. Taste: light sweetness, followed by building and lasting bitterness, not very well balanced. Overall, I was really distracted by the off appearance, but I believe that I must have gotten a mishandled beer, I will definitely be re-rating this beer when I get another one. Other than that, It was a good beer, but a little unbalanced and not something I would demand anywhere.

(Keg at Black Door, 20140104) The beer poured golden and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had grass, pine and white bread. Palate was medium bodied with stinging carbonation. Flavours were pine, grass, malts, fruitiness and bitterness. Aftertaste was hoppy and bitter. A nice hoppy brew with a bit too high a carbonation.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle, clear orange, smells a bit hoppy, has some hops for taste, not too strong though. The hops quickly fade from your tongue. Not bad, but not memorable.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral aromas of piny, resiny hops. Almost herby with a slight lemongrass aroma. Nice mouthfeel with generous amounts of hops. Flavors of piny, resiny hops that dominate the palate. Expiry date june 2014, so i think the hops may be slightly toned down compared to how the beer is supposed to be. The beer is not too malty to be unbalanced, and finishes off with a nice hoppy bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a mostly clear, slightly murky, straw golden color with a soap sudsy white head. Aromas of lemon cleaner, mown grass, and toasty malt. Initially wet, but becomes remarkably astringently dry very quickly. Flavors very closely approximate the nose.
