3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very clean and earnest pale ale, with grassy and citrus aromas from the hops. Well-balanced. A little effervescent on the palate. All around, a good, drinkable pale ale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Brewhouse Bar & Grille.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a semi-hazy orange color with some carbonation that was seen rising to fill a slim finger’s worth of white foamy head. Light lacing stuck and then slid.
The smell was basically a grassy / grainy citrus blend to the caramel malts.
The taste was basically the same but came across in a slightly cooked caramel sort of way. There wasn’t any aftertaste but it did finish dry.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Smooth carbonation coated my tongue adequately.
Overall, I say this was just an okay APA. Unsure if I would come back to.

Can, purchased in East Glacier on our way home from Whitefish. Medium gold, average white head. Aroma is grainy and vaguely fruity, flavour is much the same, more vegetal than fruity actually, but only vaguely so. Just ok.

Slightly hoppier than average pale that is fruit forward (but you can't tell if it's the cactus fruit or the hops. Medium bodied, bittersweet finish.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at Glacier Park Lodge in MT. Pours a very watery amber with no head but around the glass; a wet, heavy foam ring that hesitates and then disappears into the liquid after each swallow. Softly bitter, light citrus on the back end, and a bit of a sweet, caramel flavor up front. A very thin, flat, medium body and little excitement. Not one of my favorites.
