3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hoppy, citrusy aroma... Flavor is kind of piney and grassy... Very good pale ale, very dry, could even go as an IPA

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Stone Bistro. Clear gold, white head. Citrus, grassy hops, and light bread. Not a very good pale ale, easy drinking, but also very boring.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a lightly hazed golden yellow color with a medium sized white head and some sporadic lacing.
S: Very grassy in terms of the hop contributions with some bready maltiness. There’s also a fair amount of butter to the nose which is sort of inexcusable.
T:The flavor has a strange spiciness, presumably from the hops. Mostly, though, this beer tastes like stale bread along with some earthy and grassy hops and a hint of diacetyl.
M: The body is medium with a light to medium carbonation.
D: What is this? Quite a bad pale ale, and that’s a pretty hard style to do wrong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at the brewery. Pours a mostly clear medium golden color with a 2 finger thick white head. Tons of fresh citrus and floral hops on the nose, a bit grassy as well. Flavor is fairly low on bitterness keeping the beer very light and refreshing.
