3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This beer is decent, but not terribly impressive and DEFINITELY overpriced! At $12/six pack, I expect it to compete favorably with some of my favorites in the IPA/APA lines, but this comes up well short. Pour is a medium gold with and off white and quickly fading head. Nose is the highlight, with some citrus hops coming through. Flavor is similar to the nose, but with very muted flavors and a pretty thin mouthfeel.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Appearance is light clear amber with plenty of thick white foam. Lots of tiny fizzy bubbles rising in glass. Plenty of lacing. Aroma is grass, floral, citrus, herb, vanilla. Light body. Some hops, sweet, crisp. Watery finish. Part of a build your own sampler. Doubt I’d buy it again.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a cloudy straw color with a one finger white head. Very mild malt, citrus flavors. Great summer session beer but is kinda lacking full flavor.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear gold body, small white head. Starchy grain husks and sulfuric yeast off-notes in the nose with vegetal hops and faint touches of DMS / cooked corn / cabbage and cement mix. There’s some strange fruitiness hidden beneath all of this, coming across something like spoiled / fermenting fruit cocktail. Light body with rough grain texture, medium carbonation. I could see this being acceptable without the brewing flaws, though it would be dull and plain. With the flaws, it goes from mediocre to foul.

very decent pale ale. Bubbly and light with a slight orange peel finish. Don’t let the low rating fool you this is a good pale ale.
