3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
"Had two of these yesterday, super impressed with the taste. Really love the last two brews NG put out. Is it just a matter of time before they let me down...? i highly doubt it...These guys are on a roll. Cloudy orange, fresh hops and grass on the nose. Taste is citrusy, well done grapefruit and pine throughout. Really straightfoward, not overdone, just perfect in every sense. I will be sure to pick some more up in the near future."

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aroma floral hops, with a note of fruit in the back. Itís very light colored and a good take on an IPA. Hops donít linger all day, but it is not an all malt finish either.

Clear yellow gold with a white head. Combination of bright fruits, intense floral, and something like caramel or nugget. Does all fit together right for me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer pours a clear medium gold with a light white head, good lacing ok retention.
The aroma is on the lighter side and a little simple. It has some nice hops but thatís it.
The tatse is awesome, really surprissed with all the hops in here. It starts off a little sweet then a tons of fresh easy to drink hosp. Reminds me a lot of daisy cutter.
Nice, feel easy to drink.
This beer is great, easily one of my favorite NGís. A super tasty and easy to drink pale ale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2011 Bottle in Minneapolis. Light pale, golden yellow appearance with a fairly small white head. Slightly grapefruity, slightly citrusy hoppy nose thatís done well but not overly hoppy for an APA. Light citrusy, grapefruity hoppy carbonated Pale Ale. Good pale malty flavor. Very easy drinking while still having lots of hop character. Great APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at The Stableís Beer Loverís Anonymous. Bottom of the bottle was cloudy but tom of it was clear. I got the bottom in my pour. A soapy white head. A soft earthy start with very soft hops and just as soft citrus fruit. There are bitter tart citrus with some spice. This beer is sweet and just doesnít have a lot going on. The finish was nice, though.
