Bottle, thanks Darell! A bit of skunk in the aroma, with bread and citrus notes as well. Nice mouthfeel with a bit of dry bitterness in the finish. Very drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
I splut this with my wife...I picked it out just for her. It claims that it is good to drink after a hard days work in the sun. I had sat all day inside listening to review lectures and trying to program a Boxee app to watch EMRap videos on, so I don’t know if I’m in the target audience.
Regardless after pouring it there was a really thick head because I poured it wrong and it took forever to dissipate. Tastes slightly hoppy and a bit bitter with lemon hiding in there somewhere. I personally didn’t like it that much, too bitter, my wife enjoyed it though. I could see drinking maybe one or two of these on a hot day, but not any more.

Bottle - Very grassy with some lemon citrus. Cloudy yellow with a decent minimal head. Bready with a bit of bitterness. A bit of yeast in the finish. Not bad, but nothing special.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour - bright browny orange body, a bit of carbonation. Two fingers of nice yellowish beige head.
Aroma - fruity and spiced hop, lemon, nice biscuity and caramel malt. Quite a bit of malt in this one for a pale ale with light hops and moderate lemon nose.
Taste - middle is malty with notes of bread, biscuit and caramel as well as a tangy lemon hop on the finish. Notes of light pine, grass, grapefruit. A refreshing hop finish with little aftertaste.
Palate - mild carbonation, refreshing taste, medium body
Overall - a bit too malty for a pale ale, but very nice and refreshing pale.

bottle. Copper-kissed gold with a thick light golden head that shows beautiful retention and lace. Aroma is hoppy with a sweet caramel background. Peach, melon, and pine hop flavours burst on the palate, followed by a creamy caramel malt base. Moderately bitter finish. This may be too malty for some hopheads, but I really loved the flavours here. A real standout APA in its balance.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz brown bottle. Dark gold-orange pour with slight haze. Full off white head with good retention and some nice lacing left behind. Caramel nose, some lemony notes. Flavour starts out with more caramel, slight fruity middle with some citrus hop flavour. Finishes slightly bitter with some grapefruit notes and some pine. Light body, smooth in the mouth, light, soft carbonation. Easy to drink. Nice quaffer.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
I may have had a bad batch, but to my nose, the aroma is horridly sweet and marshmellowy. I do like the crisp hoppy finish that lingers long, but the taste is somewhat disappointing. The taste is overcome by the nose for me and there is far too much fizz on the mouth. Not a total waste of money, but I don’t think I’ll be buying this one again. Sad, too, because it’s from my beloved home state of Idaho.

Bottle but where from I forget. Pours pale amber with a large frothy off-white head. Aroma of mild caramel and floral and citric hops. Medium body with strong/sharp carbonation. Flavor is harsh roast malt with floral and citrus hop. APA it is. Finishes quite pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewery. Clear gold, foamy white head. Aroma of mild citrus and grass. Taste is also mild with more sweet malt it seems than bittering hops. Mostly light citrus and floral with a mild pine finish. Medium body and smooth carbonation.
