3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours golden orange with minimal frothy head. Aroma is very citrusy and full or earthy tones as well. The taste is astringent and finishes with a bit of malty sweetness. I really enjoy the mix of the styles and think it makes for a delicious beer
Either this or hop happy is my favorite of the variety pack so far

On tap at their Grafton location, pours a clear gold color with a tan head. The smell is citrus and toasted grain. The taste is a balanced toasted grain sweetness and citrus ending with some dryness and bitterness. Light+ in body with average carbonation. Decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
[Bottle] Dirty golden pour with lots of fizzy carbonation. Not much head or lacing. Nose is of stale hops, grass and lighter herbal notes. Grainy flavors mix with astringent hoppiness. Caramel, light grass and some earthy notes in the taste as well. Thin body. Herbal and harsh bitterness comes through as it warms.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with slighty off white head. Aroma is pretty sweet with caramel and biscuit notes. A hint of citrus and a little medicinal note. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild bitterness. A little too unbalanced. Caramel, toffee, biscuits, earthy flavors. Below average to average pale ale.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 11/20
Simple copper pour with sticky white lacing. It has a nose of crackery malts, feet, and citrusy hops. Medium heavy body with a pretty aggressive palate. The taste is vegetal and bitter with a metallic tang. Muddled citrus zest and juice with vegetal malts. Bitter and not particularly developed.

A solid pale ale with offers a nice melding of American and British hops that make it something different from yet another pale ale. Taste is citrus and earthy with some good toasted malt.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draft at Milwaukee Ale House.
The beer is golden hued with a small white head. The aroma offers biscuit malt, citrus, hops. A straightforward brew, in the "balanced" style of pale ales. Bready malts and hops with just a hint of alcohol. Easy drinking with moderate carbonation. Average...

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Surprising aroma of caramel and sweet bread. Mild notes of hops. Orang amber in color...decent tan head. Sweet malt up front, slightly rich. Caramel is light also, then an average bitterness creeps in. Some notes of citrus in there, but faint. Finishes with a harsh bitterness, somewhat balanced with sweetness. O.k. but nothing special.
