2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Some what of a straw yellow with a fine haziness about it. Hoppy aroma with a tangy greenness to it. A mild hoppy flavor that finishes somewhat dryly.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Not a great colour, a little tint to a golden colour. Somewhat hoppy smell, but nothing overwhelming. Taste brings out some subtle flavours, but not any big tastes. Not a great APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A medium gold/copper color and fairly thin head start this one. The aroma is lightly spicy and a medium level of hops...very nice, really. The flavor is, in my opinion, a little disappointing, but I have to say that I am a hops lover. The hops, in my opinion, are a little lacking in the flavor, though it is very smooth and easy drinking. For someone who really enjoys a less hoppy pale, this is a good choice, and its drinkability makes it a decent choice for a session ale. Not a bad APA, but not a great one either.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Its very similar to their Sawtooth bitter, maybe a touch thinner bodied and some bit drier. This is an easy drinking beer and serves well as a session beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice slightly above average APA. Malts are medium and sweet towards the back of the tongue. Hops are pretty much all over the mouth on this - start to finish - not overly hopped, just continuos. My one complaint is the pasty finish.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Surprisingly sweet/floral scent. Taste of the traditional citrus bitterness, but more balanced that many pales. Not bad.

lightly malty (cookie), moderately hoppy (grapefruit, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor
is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, lightly acidic. Finish is
lightly sweet, moderately bitter, moderately acidic. Medium body, watery
texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Decent but unexciting.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. Nice dark gold color with a medium thick head. Decent hops aroma and flavor with a dry, biting finish. Like the other Left Hand offerings this is above average.
