3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle. Pours orange, clear and bright, with a thin white head. Aroma is grainy with touches of floral hops. Flavor is crisp, slightly grainy, with touches of herbal hops and bitterness. Finish is dry and bitter. Mouthfeel is brisk and light bodied. Overall, a good session beer but nothing really special.

Dark murky gold with a light white head, watery, thin cap...weak nose with a little hops, toffee and wet grains, boring... Tastes terrible, bitter alcohol, generic hops, skunky too... This is utter garbage not worth trying

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. No date on this one that I could find. Poured into a New Belgium tulip style glass a clear, honey golden color with a slight off white head that has a pretty poor retention. The head does collar slightly around the glass. The aroma is a slightly skunky citrus note that like over ripe grapefruit and orange. Medium mouthfeel. Muted citrus flavors with a slight sweetness. Rather bland in flavor to be honest with a minimal hop presence. Even in the back end there is minimal flavors. Overall, this is a subpar APA that I would not consider buying anytime soon.

Dry Rye. That sums up this beer in a nushell. Limited Aroma. Dry, malty pale ale. Very drinkable with some mexican cousine.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden with a lacing, puffy white head that lasts forever. Aroma of citrus and pine and pale malt. Tastes like tortilla chips, pale malt and hay. Medium-thin. The aroma is MUCH better than the taste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear light yellow gold with a small white head that quickly goes to a thin collar that leaves a little lacing.
The aroma is biscuity malts and grassy hops.
The flavor is biscuity malts with some sweetness, leading to a good sized grassy / peppery bitterness. The mouthfeel is medium bodied and kind of watery.
Overall, I didn’t really care for this. It had good bitterness for an APA, but I don’t really like biscuity malts or grassy bitterness.

Pours bright deep gold into a Sam glass. Bright white head with good retention recedes leaving trailing sheets. Sour pine aromas. Sweet caramel upfront turning to pumpernickel before the lasting sour resin finish.

2.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Aroma is of basement and old books. Bland and that of coors/light. Slighty grassy hops with a light malt/bitter finish. Palate is decent but not special- somewhat fizzy and slightly oily. Overall... Not the best from left hand.But I would drin it over bud light or pabst.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
From a bottle. Pop and the smell is uh oh very piney and fresh. Looks like a pale lager in the glass, perhaps a tad darker yellow. A little bold on the first taste with that piney aroma carrying over to the flavor. Seems to be a little stronger than 5%. Rubs me a little the wrong way, but of course, its an ale and most ales do. Bitter finsh reminds me of many strong pils. Nifty label.

4/8/11. On tap. Clear amber pour with a nice fluffy off-white head. Wow, really nice hop aroma - it smells like I’m whiffing hops from the bag while brewing, with a soft malt backing. Lighter flavor with a solid hint of the hops but a more forward malt profile. This reminds me of homebrew for some reason
