2.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Color and appearance is nice, golden honey color with some cloudiness. Almost no aroma which was a bit strange. A touch of caramel, a touch of hops in flavor. Decent but not my fav on this 3rd coast tour.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle into a pint glass. There is some random code on the bottle but it means nothing to me in terms of a bottling date.
Pours a hazy dark copper with a quick half finger white head that is then gone. Just a few random splotches of lacing and head.
The aroma is fairly weak but I can pick out some light tropical fruit along with a touch of pear and peach. Can’t really detect any malt at all.
The flavor has more fruit than the aroma but is still on the weak side. I feel this beer might have some age on it. Nice juiciness that is really leaving me yearning more a bit more. Turns into some pine closer to the finish. Just a touch of bread in the background. Bitterness is on the moderate side with a light mouthfeel.
Overall, I feel this could be a respectable APA when it is fresh but it falls off quickly. I need to try to find a fresher sample.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Mostly clear dark gold with an off-white head.
Sweet grapefruit hop aroma with just a touch of toast.
The flavor is well balanced with bitterness and sweetness.
This one can play with the IPAs too! Very nice.

12oz bottle into Le Duvel - nose is caramel and grass. Sip adds little. Malty and bitter but not as hoppy as the style suggests.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
on tap @ Party Town / Florence KY -- Clear deep amber with a firm 1" head, bands and blotches of lace. Taste is sweet malt that ambles through the palate to a finish that doesn’t see the bitter of citrus hops until the the finish is fading away. Actually very satisfying, nice to drink, although not complex.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
A very floral aroma of cascade hops and some hay like malt, a touch of marijuana, some peach. Appears clear yellow, beautiful lace, a constant stream of bubbles. Tastes sweet up front of passion fruit, peach, some very minor but balanced hop bitterness. Palate is fizzy, but not thick, decent. Overall, very good.

Tap. Dark straw yellow. Bubbly. Scattered lacing. Very floral nose. Full mouthfeel of piney, floral and mildly citrus quality. Incredibly solid pale ale.

Bottle; poured a murky orange brown color with an off white head. Aroma of biscuit, caramel, and some earthiness. A lot of biscuit, touch of caramel and sweetness. Mild hopping. Ok

Dégustée (bouteille) le 2 juin 2013 au Mondial de la Bière 2013 à Montréal (D24C3KPPPi). Bière blonde dorée foncée. Col très mince et éphémère. Très peu effervescente. Odeur de céréales grillées. Un peu forte, peu sucrée, très amère. Saveur de céréales grillées. Manque un peu de punch, un peu flatte, unidimensionnelle.
