3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. M. From Iowa. A big thank you to John M.
Clear amber colour with a medium sized creamy off-white head.
Fruity and tea like hops, moderate bitterness and sweet malt in the great aroma. The flavour is even better. Very tasty. A lot of hoppy bitterness, herbal notes and sweetish malt. Balanced.

3.4 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, clear amber with a small white head and a very light lace. Aroma is heavy on citrus. Medium bodied and oily with average carbonation. Taste is medium bitter and finished much the same. Overall, a beginners pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy amber pour - thick, soapy lace - juicy, resinous cascade nose, with a lightly bready malt base underneath - simple aroma, but pleasant - fairly creamy mouthfeel - flavor is fairly acidic and quite husky and dirty - bitter grapefruit rind and other bitter citrus notes - light woodiness - mild metallic notes - finish of lingering huskiness and some caramel and toasty Munich malt notes, which seem very out of place in this style - not all that enjoyable.

From a 12 oz bottle shared in Gardiner MT. Pours amber with a thick off white head. Grassy nose. Flavors of biscuit and some grass and butterscotch. Is this really an IPA?

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a copper color with white head. Fresh cut grass, earthy, hoppy aromas. Grassy, earthy, hoppy flavors, with a nice caramel backbone. I think this is a nice pale ale. I don’t know that I would consider it an IPA.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark hazy orange with a brownish head. Smell has a moderate piney hop. citrus and yeasty smell. Taste has a malty piney hop taste along with some yeasty notes and a dry resin aftertaste. Palate is a bit on the watery side but also has some mild carbonation. It’s a good beer, considering I only paid a dollar for it.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2012 Bottle poured into glass. Poured a nice auburn with a off white very light brown bubbly head. Smell is orange citrus with malty, hoppy, grassy notes. Light biscuit with minimal citrus taste. Definitely getting the hops towards the back of the mouth. Overall an easy drinking light to medium body ale that I would try again.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Poured clear, lighter orange with a short, tight-bubbled eggshell head. The aroma picked up biscuity malts and orange meat with citrus and grassy hop accents.. soft and well-balanced. The flavor found biscuit and bready malts with light citrus and grassy bitterness plus a fair amount of graininess around.. finished with sweet and bitter orange plus residual biscuit. Light-medium bodied with filling carbonation on the palate.. the carbo kept it from flowing smoothly at times.. overall a solid drinker.

Big specialty malt presence. Hops are mainly c hops making it a stereotypical but decent pale ale.
