3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
One of my favorite APA's. Spicy, citrusy hops flavoring is complex but not overwhelming. Hints of orange with a peachy, malt follow. Carbonation is perfect - I'd really like to try this one on tap.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice peach colored body with a tall foamy white head. Nose is hops but has a nice spice character along with some orange peel, perhaps. Nice taste as well. Some lighter hop character, for the style, along with some spice, malt, and fruit. This is well balanced, as Sham pointed out. Very drinkable beer. Pleasant taste and finish. Very smooth. Recommended! Great beer!

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light gold pour with a frothy white head. Hop aromas are most prevalent. Some malt, though not much. Malt and hops are pretty well balanced in the flavors. Smooth palate and a bitter finish make this a nice pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Citrus, hoppy aroma, cloudy golden colored, decent sweet lemony flavor, some malts, few hops in the finish. Nice, drinkable, ok beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I don't know where the "extra" comes in, it's drinkable but fairly bland.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Hazy pale yellow body. Astringent, citrus hops, chalky aftertaste, thin body. This was not very good. (2nd try - first bottle was bad)

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
light golden color, fairly large white head, very little scent but may be because my nose was a bit stuffed up from a recent cold.. not a horrible beer, but not GREAT either.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
color of a pineapple with the same and some additional florals in the aroma. Too little on the bitters. Not all that impressive.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Very light color as the "extra pale" indicates. Good hop flavor with a fair amount of malt for balance.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yellow haze with a slight head, aroma is hops and citrus. Starts out as a decent APA but something is not quite right with the finish - it's a bit acidic. Overall it's just an ok APA, nothing I would seek out again.
