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.

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.

This is not a real good pale ale. Too much malt. Where are hops in this one?

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle (regretfully no glass available) at Psycho Suzi’s. I’m going to assume a golden color with some hints of copper. Aroma faintly of hops but nothing overpowering. Surprisingly easy to drink and tastes just above average. A decent option if you’re at a tiki bar and everyone around you us drinking from a shrunken head or a tall boy PBR. Slight bitter aftertaste that is a definite letdown.

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

Bottle. Pours a golden orange color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus, spicy hop notes, some sweet malt too. The flavor follows the nose, grassy, citrus and spicy hops and some sweet malt. The body is light with a dry mouth feel. Overall an ok APA.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had on tap at Dewey’s Pizza in West Chester, OH
Clear, light copper with a small one finger head.
Earthy hops was the first smell I picked up on. There is a bit of bready malt but it takes a backseat to the hops.
Hops dominate the taste initially but once again they are more grassy/earthy rather than citrus. The hop flavor drops off pretty rapidly and there is somewhat of a void afterwards. No real maltiness. Very light mouthfeel.
Overall this was an average APA that I honestly thought seemed more British than American. Not sure I would seek it out again.
