3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle via the beer swap box! - Thanks! - Pours golden with a fluffy white head that fades back to a ring but laces from there down. Beautiful citrus aroma of orange blended with many floral notes as well and a little grapefruit even. Flavor is quite hoppy as well with notes of orange, grapefruit, floral accents, and light grains. Crisp, clean and refreshing on the palate. This is as fine of a pale ale as I’ve tasted. Very nice..

Poured a orange-tinged copper color with a big cratered head. Very nice orange-buddy citrus nose. Very citric bite in the flavor, too, like spiced oranges, very nice dry finish.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle poured a clear copper/gold color with a small white head. Aroma has a strong citrus hop character with a slightly sweet carmel malt note. Taste has the perfect bitterness for a pale ale and a great hoppy finish that is good and dry. Overall a great American Pale that should definitely be on the top 25 list.
