3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16.9 ounce bottle that’s about 4 weeks old. Pours copper with a huge white head, plenty of sticky lacing, and no action in the glass. Aroma is floral with a real hop presence. The taste is light, crisp and easy drinking. There is some light bitterness on the finish. Palate is solid and this is a good APA. This is not as good as Mo IMO.

500 ml bottle thanks to Michael. Pours a cloudy orange color with a very large white head. The aroma is rich citrus hops, light perfume. A rich fruity brew, some sweet malts akin to Belgian malts, spicy, pepper, a rather dry finish. Clean and very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Downeast Beverage Co in Portland, ME. Pours a hazed, gold colored body with an inch thick, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is floral lemons and oranges with a bready yeast and a light grass. Light-medium sweet pale malts with a few tropical fruit notes as well. Flavor is a bit of a pineapple, lemon, and orange mixture up front with florals, a light grass, some bready yeast, and a lightly sweetened pale malt backing. Finishes dry with a nice floral backing, a medium-light dry grassy bitterness, and a touch of pale malt sweetness. Lengthy aftertaste following a light body and a soft, moderate carbonation. Overall, an enjoyable pale ale. Nice, soft floral and slightly fruity hopping with a dry, clean, lightly sweetened pale malt backing. A bit of a doughy yeast keeps things interesting. Nice beer.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a lighter orange amber hue with some haziness. Head size is pretty desent. It’s thick and dense and lingers a good while leaving some lacing. Carbonation is there.
Bold aromatics with floral and citrus notes really sticking out here. Caramel malts are nice and sweet and balance out the pungent hop bouquet. Taste is an upfront hop attack, quite bold for an APA. Sweet malts balance out nicely with a bready or biscuit finish. Mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery around the edges. Overall, a well made beer with a pleasing look and agood taste. I look forward to simpling other products from this brewery in the future.

Bottle poured a dark golden color with a thin covering of white head. Aroma has nice hops, pines, light citrus, and a nice malted base. Mouth feel is light and there is plenty of carbonation. Flavor again is centered to the hops, light peppery spice, citrus, pine, and malt.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle: Poured a clear bright golden color ale with a nice pure white foamy head with good retention and some good lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops is quite amazing with light sweet cereal notes also detectable. Taste is a superb mix between some floral hops notes mix in with some notes of light cereal. Mix of citrus and floral hoppy notes is just about perfect. Body is about average with good carbonation. I really liked this beer and I guess the East coast breweries are not catching up on West coast brewery about adding hops into beer being more then just about bitterness.

Mild, easy drinking hoppy beer. A nice citrus taste. Fomay looking head, lacey.Could not finish the entire bottle with John, but I kept the rest for cooking. More aroma would help.
