3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Turbid cascading of orange & amber from top to bottom with a sizable, off-white & eggshell tinted cap that plumes up nicely, lasts for a while, & leaves some chunky lacing behind. Nose is total Cascade, no mistaking it here. Mild grapefruit, citrus peel, light white pepper spice, floral hoppage, & moderately herbaceous tones. Malt lends a backbone of light caramel & toasted bread. Not much sweetness, though. Strangely enough, malts are the first thing I notice when taking a sip. Light, toasty caramel, & a huge blanket of slightly sweet bread & grains. Hops come out with bitter grapefruit rind, faint citrus pith, a touch of juiciness, but definitely more bitter than sweet. Finish of herbal spice, white pepper, & ashy dryness from the hops. Lightly sticky body, more than I’d like for a pale ale, anyway. Decent pale ale, nothing crazy.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Warner Robins, Ga. - Lazy Dog Growler - 12 oz bottle. Slightly hazy medium golden pour, foamy white head - a whole lot of it - the bottle spewed. Light spruce aroma, a hint of canned fruit cocktail. Flavor is standard pale ale, a slight bot of citrus bitterness, a touch of mint, just a wee bit of nectarine fruitiness. Thick enough mouthfeel. Overall, decent.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
A cloudy yellow color with a white head. The aroma is sour lemons. The flavor is somewhat bitter with mostly lemons and a bit of weird yeasty funk. The bottle is not old we just got them in town a few weeks ago. Overall this is more sour than bitter which I dont like in APAs. Overall average.

Comes to the table a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent sized bubbly white head. Earthy pine with hints of bready malt. Nice pale but hard to follow that beer’d I just had.
