3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served in the 12 oz brown shortneck.
It is a light orange /dark yellow ale in appearance, its quite hazy and there is no head to speak of.
The aroma is very citrusy..though not in the usual "pale " way..this reminds me of a hefe for some reason.
The taste though is unmistakable..classic American pale ale , loads of hops and a nice enough malt backbone.Good bitter aftertaste.
Pretty nice feel on the tongue for a pale..its quite smooth and easy to go down.
A good drinkable beer though has some odd characteristics.

Bottle poured a nice golden color, looked good but not much of a head.
aroma was fruity creamy and just a little hoppy.
Very good taste with a creamy mouth feel and very easy drinking.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bananna? Huh? Fruity nose with some toasted malts. And bananna. The toasted malts continue into the flavor. A bit watery with that bananna thing going on. Odd - not what I expected

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pale yellow with white thick foamy head. Apricot, peach, sweet, with some hops on the nose. Light prickle, mild sweetness, with some light hops on the finish. Not bad at all.

3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Sparkling clear, light yellow ale with a mid-sized, frothy, white head. Thin, stratus lacework. The nose is of lemon, grapefruit and white pepper. The flavor is well-balanced and citrusy with notes of lemon, butterscotch, grapefruit and white pepper. Although a low gravity beer, it is medium-bodied with an oily/silky mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Quick, clean finish.

2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Goldenish amber in color, decent head. Smells wonderfully fruitful and florally. taste going in is nice, sweet and fresh, but finishes with a really funky tangy funk, which makes this beer not quite as good. After the first voyage down the pipes, however, the beer isn’t bad... but that first swallow tastes grungy.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Golden colour with a large head. Aroma is sweet, floral and buttery. The flavour opens lightly sweet with floral hops and finishes slightly bitter. Just a darn good drinkable beer.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Drinkable, but uninteresting, cascadey, with a relatively dry finish, lemon, lychee flavours, not much else.
