3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2005 Golden pale, with a touch of orange color. Raging, frothing off-white creamy head, which lasts and lasts. The carbonation in this beer is fuming. Finely flecked with yeast. The lacing is ridiculous, leaving sheets of broken lace, everywhere it goes. This beer pours beautifully. Aroma is a light tangy sting of citrusy hops, but it’s not too strong. Flavor is pretty deep. Starts off with a good burst of slightly floral hops and strong orange flavor, then finishes with a good dose of malt and a strong kick of wheaty yeast. Palate is crisp, yet with a lingering hoppy coating, with a touch of malted sugar. A very well rounded beer, with a fantastic balance of hops, malt, and yeast.

Bottle pour. I appreciate the hops here with this darker brew that isn’t dwarfed by the malt

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle from theisti. Pours a very slightly hazed orangish/tan golden with smaller dense white head. Very subtle nose, more forward on the malt with the hops just adding a bit of orange sweetness. Touch of bitter astringency up front, light pine and citrus, definitely get the lightly toasted english malt character. Different take on an american pale and fairly enjoyable. Thanks Tim.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipates to the edges and laces slightly. Aroma has a bit of musty citrus with some grapefruit bitterness with a hint of light earthy grains. Flavor begins with a nice hop combination of bitter pine and grapefruit that mellows to more of a citrus note with a light grain backbone.
