3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Quite a nice effort from the brewers of a quality product. I’m a hop-head, so I appreciate the effort. I am not your ordinary hophead, in that when I feel like I need a burst of hops I run to my kegerator and take a pull of a batch of my home brewed IIPA. But this one will fit the bill when I want something a little milder. It has a great hop aroma and flave, it does a good job of fulfilling my current hop desires, and I dream of its thin, hoppy, piney and citrusy aroma and flavor when I am satisfying corporate America from 9-5, when my homebrew is not at the forefront of my current state of mind.

Light amber with slight off white head, holds a lace. Sweet and slightly floral nose. Excellent feel in the mouth from start to finish. Grass and floral predominate in the hops, with little residual malt flavour. Overall a very enjoyable american pale ale.

Not a bad bew. Not nearly as hoppy as I was expecting it to be. I’ve had better summer beers, but this one deserves recognition.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear golden bronze with fluffy off-white head. Aromas of grapefruit, flowers, resin, and peaches. Taste starts dry, resinous, and floral finishing on a fruitier, slightly peachy note with lingering earthiness. Light body with slightly sticky texture and average carbonation. Refreshing, though I could have used a little more malt flavor, personally.

Smells Hoppy sweet, kind of like a hop fruit. Not like a grapefruit, literally like a Hop fruit, if one existed. Color is light orange with a small head. Tastes of fizzy paleness, with a full bodied mouthfeel.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma was that of bready yeast, slight floral once it slowly warmed.The apearance was golden amber. The head was at first a nice creamy eggshell. The head poured thick but disapated fairly quickly. If it kept the head it would have been a higher rated appearance. Taste is upfront grassy hops with an apex of bitternes that tapers off to the piney grass hops again. The palate was delightfully bitter with a tingle on the lips and cheek. Overall, not my favorite beer, but I enjoyed it more than I thought I would. I preferred this beer out of the bottle.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The aroma is of hops, grapefruit and pine. The finish is short and mild. Wonderful rich hop aroma. A hint of honey in the malt. Pours a deep amber with a fluffy head. Overall excellent. I love any beer that can deliver this much aroma but keep the finish mild.

Bottle. This is one of my new recent favorites. I was excited to try it after being a big fan of Ranger and Fat Tire. This is a very nice Pale Ale. Has a nice hop aroma with a mix of citrus and sweetness on the head, and finishes with a nice malty character with some hoppy aftertaste. Very nice. I liked it so much the first time, I bought 3 more 6 packs over the past few weeks. Ranger is hoppier/more bitter. This has a sweeter and maltier quality to it. Highly recommended.

Light with foamy white head. Mild hop aroma of pine and citrus that does not foreshadow a big hop assault. True to that aroma, it had a sweet malty base an decent hop profile but not overpowering. Perfect for me. This is one of my favorites from this brewery now that they discontinued Skinny Dip. It's a great session beer with enough flavor to be satisfying.

Lots of lacing and endless fizzy streams of bubbles, aroma is almost nonexistent, subtle orange and citrus smell. Taste is like slight lemon and soda water. Dissipates quickly on the palate. Easy to drink with a side of cheese bread, on tap at Mellow Mushroom, Nashville.
