On tap at Dexters, pours a clear gold with a thin white head, aroma has a small touch of citrus and tropical fruit, subtle but nice, flavor is light citrus hops with a smooth finish, just kind of boring and one note

Bottle. Pours amber with a small off white head. Citrus aroma. Classic pale ale bitter citrus flavor. Very crisp. Big bitter mouth feel. Plenty of drinkability, but nothing to get me excited about. Not a huge PA fan so nothing against this beer in particular. Nothing offensive.

bottle. some fine suspended sediment in a orange beer under a small, frothy, white head. candied fruit aroma. some nice robust pale malt adds sweetness and character to the malt flavors with a fruity/floral hops. lightly sweet but somehow has a mostly dry finish. medium body.

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.
