2.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pours a caramel colored brown with a beige head that doesn’t last very long. Caramel, yeast, malt, bakery, and floral hops are in the nose. Thick caramel flavor initially, but a watery finish with little bitterness kills the expectation. The finish isn’t horrible, but it still kills the overall score. The watery aftertaste is disappointing!!!!!!&

Dark amber with a big creamy head. Aroma of bitter citrus and light pine. Flavor is earthy malt up front and a juicy citrus bite. Not as bitter up front as the aroma led me to believe but comes through with more bitterness in the finish.

Reddish brown color, and a maltier scent than expected. Pretty good mix of hops/malt.

Pours a beautiful amber gold with a decent sized whitish head mostly dissipating. Nose is both hops and malt. Fairly creamy on the palate, taste is hoppy but not overly bitter. A mild pale ale, this one pairs well with pretzels and Dusseldorf mustard.

Pours a cloudy tan with a thick head. Hoppy aroma and a rich thick flavor. Goes down well. A little sour finish, but not bad at all.

Fair warning, pales are not my cup of tea. This example of the genre seems to me to have no flavor other than the aggressive floral hops that muscle their way right up to the front. My first, and last.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 12oz. - Poured lighter copper color with chunks floating and staying suspended. Head is off white and retained small head throughout!
Aroma - lemony hops and damp hay. It also smelled like a barnyard!
Flavor - bitter astingent and pungent hops mixed with sour lemon taste, not that bad!
Palate - medium bodied with sticky texture. Finish is bitter and sour! Lemony sour aftertaste lasts a while.
Overall - Quite a bit of flavor for a pale ale, had salty lemony taste thats not that bad. Could use more malt sweetness to balance it out!

A very good PA, especially when it’s a session beer served with the handpulled tap. Strong hops, nice appearance, and floral aroma. A nice all-around beer.

Very hoppy for an APA. Bitter hop oils just coat your tongue upon first sip. Nice citrus flavor, piney aroma. Perfectly sessionable at 5%. I would recommend this one with their homemade gumbo.
