3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
As a fellow Tulsan quite familiar with the Hansons, I had mixed feelings about this one long before it ever landed on shelves. It’s likely among the strongest brewed by Mustang and one of the strongest pales I’ve had. I was quite pleased with the initial tastes, but it’s the finish that ruins this from being a star. They need to tweak the finish before too many taste this and cross it off their lists. It’s not ready. Go back and rework the recipe and smooth out that awful end.

(12oz bottle, thank you so much brystmar) clearish gold, find white bubbles. Nose of honey, light American hops, touch of caramel. Taste of caramel, muted hops, touch of honey, pretty dry and very light hops. Nothing wrong with it, but not super great either.

355ml twist-off bottle. Clear amber pour, short-lived head. ARoma is toasted malt, not much else. Flavor is sweet but herbal, like a pale ale in 1990. Not great. Super sweet.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Malty, tea APA aroma. Twist off, bad label, hazy auburn. Very malty and mouthy, woody tones, not that hoppy actually. Chalky mouthfeel. Better than I thought it would be. ABC Liquors, Betton.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
bottle. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Aroma is mostly grassy and floral hops with a bit of underlying maltiness. Flavor is light with some bitterness up front that doesn’t stick around. Light bodied and drinkable, if disappointing.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a bottle, 12 oz. A balanced golden, medium to full-bodied pale ale. Not as hoppy as the name suggests, bur hoppy enough to give it kick. Notes of caramel, pine, citrus. Gets even better if you let it warm up in the glass a little.
