3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light body, foamy head and sloppy lacing. Smell was sweet of pineapple, bitter of hops and a little spicy on the nose. The balance of hops and malts were great, the subtle bitterness was countered by a maltiness that finished bitter and spicy. VERY refreshing, especially for a game of cornhole.

Bottle from local Trader Joes. Pretty classy for what I assume is a rather small output brewery. Hops leans towards the resin side in aroma but maybe a little overpowered by malt in the flavor. Nice.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma is slightly citrusy and grassy. Pours a burnt orange color that leaves webbed lacing down the glass. Taste is hops right off the bat, caramel and biscuit malt in the middle with a subtle bitter finish. In general more malty than a lot of APAís that I have tried.

Clear amber, foamy beige head. Aroma of oranges, nut, chocolate, malt, some toasted. Taste is good, light floral and orange peel. Medium bitter finish. Good balance all around

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
This starts with a mild pine hop aroma, and pours a clear copper, with a full white head. Thereís a nice little punch of pine and citrus hops, and a clean caramel flavor. A slick mouthfeel, with a very short finish. This isnít an outstanding beer, but it is very drinkable, and accessible to those who generally drink BMC.

So, looking at the commercial description, I see that I am rating this on this beerís 4th birthday. Well, no, Iím not saying that this specific beer is four years old, I mean tha this brand was started on April 25, four years ago. So itís got that goiní for it. Anyway, this a pretty straight forward APA. I liked it.

1/13/10. 12oz bottle. Musty oxidized caramel old ale aroma with a sweet caramel flavor that reminds me more of an old ale or barleywine. If this is a pale ale, it must be very old.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured into a pint glass.
3.5 A: Hazy dark orange/amber color. Two fingers of half frothy/half creamy head with good retention, but minimal lacing.
2.5 S: Big hit of buttery pungent breadiness. Caramel malts with some graininess. Slight citrusy twang from the hops.
2.5 T: Buttery breadiness and some off flavors that I canít put my finger on. The taste is reminiscent of a poorly executed homebrew. Pine and orange hop flavor.
4.0 M: Medium fuller body. Good carbonation, creamy.
2.5 D: Not a big fan of breadiness in an APA.
Serving type: bottle

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Does not age well! Murky copper color with little head. Aroma is mostly malt. Very lacking in hops. Taste is similar. It has not gone bad but has lost its zip.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a copper color. Lots of roast malt flavors, not enough hops to provide any balance. Not at all what Iím looking for in an APA. This beer is somewhat palatable when fresh, downright awful when not.
