Draft at farmhouse. Dark orange pour with off white head. Grassy and floral aroma. Bitter and malty taste with moderate hops. Pretty good

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Had it out of a bottle. It has a golden amber hue with a mild head and a citrus hop aroma. The taste is an okay blend of cascade hops and bitter aftertaste, but I have had better.

This is my favorite beer right now, perfect balance of bitter and malt. The definition of a Michigan IPA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark dull copper pour with fair ’cracked desert’ white head remnants. Slightly sweet malty caramel nose gives way to a surprisingly well balanced citrus floral hop presence. Very sessionable with just the right amount of carbonation and quaffability. For a pale ale, it’s right up my alley!

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A run of the mill APA. Not bad by any means, but very average. Aroma was decent. Sweet grains, fresh cut grass. Pour was a nice medium gold with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was average. Tastes like the millions of other pale ales out there. Perfect balance of grassy green hops and sweet caramel malt. Nice carbonation. Good any time beer but not very impressive.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, golden color, light head. Hop nose but balanced with some malty sweetness. Lots of bitterness in the taste and the finish lingers. Overall a good flavorful pale.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Pours a slightly-cloudy off-orange with a thick head from a bottle. Nose is sour like a lager, alcohol. Flavor is also the same - is it bad? Yow.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Prototypical amber-orange presentation, with a standard, rocky head of off-white foam. The aroma is of righteous, American hops. This drinks with a nice floral character, well balanced and very drinkable. (#5083, 6/27/2013)

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle. Floral malt aroma. Dark copper color and heavy lacing. Yeasty, malty and carrying a macro taste impression. Mouthfeel is sorta watery, light side of medium. Overall it’s drinkable and good enough to finish all 12 ounces, but not a standout by any means.
