3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden color. Aroma of pine, citrus, floral. Very low aroma. Flavor is citrus and floral hops. A nice touch of sweetness in the finish. A very easy drinking beer, but lacks a bit of that bite that I like in an American Pale Ale.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle. pours a pale orange with a 1 finger white head - which lasts throughout. pleasant floral, grassy, piney hop aromas with some light bread - definitely feels dry hopped. medium body with more earthy bitterness, rye and caramel malts. towards the back of the mouth, it becomes somewhat watered down. the hops really fade towards the finish. they must have dry hopped this one or added most of the hops towards the end of the boil. more malt driven finish with some spicy rye notes. this is a nice, very drinkable, hop forward aromatic pale ale... not sure why the ratings are so low.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear gold, foamy beige head. Aroma of orange, grass, grain, tropical sweetness. Taste has a mild bitterness with good citrus sweetness and some grain/grass again. Pretty easy to drink. I really enjoyed it considering I drank it after a few hours of fishing in 95 degrees and sweating my ass off.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is a dull yellow with a large white head. Aroma is decently hopped with some dull malt. Flavor is floral hop to start but finishes really watery and tasteless. Not a reall good effort on this one. Way to watery.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a darker yellow color with a smaller white head. Aroma was decent on this one. Pine, citrus flavors, and grapefruit. Flavor was a let down. Soapy taste. Some metallic in there. Grass and straw. No real hop bitters to it. Not a lot to this beer. Way to smooth for an APA. Well below average for the style.

Pours clean sharp gold. One finger of creamy eggshell white head. Not much on the nose, lots of grass and ass. Same on the flavor. Good lord.

Gold-amber with decent, creamy, white head / Nose of toast and dry hops / Medium body, good balance and lightly bitter finish / Simple flavors of toast and dry hops, with grapefruit notes / Not on a par with the better APA’s.
