3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle- poured clear straw color with thin white head. Aroma is kinda funky, reminds me of a barnyard. Pretty decent looking brew with ok head. Taste is actually really good. Very nice syrupy malt and a lot of hop varieties going on. Overall a good but not great APA. Aroma is slight drawback!

12 oz bottle. Pours light gold with thick white head. Nice hops smell, and very smooth. Definitely a good drinker.

Sadly, this is old and past its prime. Pours pale golden with a fizzy white head. Aroma is honey and piney hops. Flavor is smooth and balanced. I feel there was probably a more pronounced hop note at one point. Nice malt flavor. Still a nice bitterness in the finish. Good beer even though it’s old.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tasted from bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark yellow with foamy white head. Lot of lazy. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Taste is a nice crisp bitterness with a small amount of malt sweetness to balance it. Flavors are mostly floral hops with some citrus notes of lemon and grapefruit. Very good tasting. Overa a great pale ale.

Thanks HisBoyElroy on the split. Very light hoppy aroma. Followed by a light taste of hops and a lot of lemon. Not bad. Very drinkable.

Pours a slightly hazing golden orange. Floral and citrusy in the nose. Taste a bit of lemony citrus with an intersting tropical fruit note. Nicely balanced and slightly dry. One of my favortites from New Glarus.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Pours an amber-tinted yellow color with a slight chill haze throughout, topped off with a small layer of foamy, white bubbles. Aroma of light pine, leafy hops, faint perfume, candied grapefruit, & a hint of white pepper-y spiciness on the back-end. Only a very mild hint of toasted cracker malt sugar. Taste is full of crisp, floral hops with a mid-palate grassy bite. Lightly toasted biscuit & cracker malts provide a good base. Finish of mild perfume & zesty grapefruit peels. Sharp finish, coats the mouth ever so slightly. Very drinkable pale ale.

Bottle from bytemesis pours a clear golden color with two fingers. Fragrant aroma, floral with spruce. Flavor is similar but very light, not much malt to speak of, like the memory of an IPA. I am torn on this one. It has great flavors but the lightness makes it underwhelming.

Bottle pour light gold. Nose mango and pine but mostly fruit hop. Sweet bitter up front. Some aromatic hop early. Mid palate bitter the malt. Light bitter finish.
