3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On-tap @ the Brewpub.
Amber color. The fresh hop aroma you get right off the bat is great, and I was told all the hops used are locally grown...nice. A solid use of caramel malts, but the hops take over from there and lead to a great, smooth brew that is certainly hop-driven.
I asked the bartender if there were any plans to bottle their beers in the near future, and he actually said they are planning to bottle the Kilbourn Hop Ale soon. Assuming thatís done, itíll start very local for sure, but itíd be nice to see this one out in stores for more people to try.
Overall impression..this is a very good, hoppy pale ale. You canít stop at this place and not try this one.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Seems a lot of people rated this one fairly high and maybe I just got a bad sampler draft, but I really didnít care for this one. Pours a cloudy medium amber color with average head. There is the scent of some hops lingering over the beer. The taste is hoppy as well but it seemed rather watery. There was a vast difference in the texture. Out of the 10 samples I tried, this was my least favorite, but like I said maybe I just got a bad draft.

Tap. Pours to a clean golden amber body with a nice white head. The aroma is pine and grassy hops with a balanced malt. The flavor was mostly pine and grapefruit with a grassy backbone. Nice malts that balanced the bitterness.
