3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Six pack of 12 oz. bottles from grocery. Golden pour with just topping white foamy head. No carbonation. Some floral and grass aroma, a touch of citrus. Ahhh, some bitter but more of a astringent aftertaste. Pine and malts pushing some flavors? I could see this on a sunny spring day (not what I had today in the PacNW,,,)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium thick, well retained, tiny bubbled, off white head, with extensive lacing, over a slightly hazy gold (SRM 5) body.......nose is light pine, resin, slight citrus, mild toasted malts......taste is lightly sweet, with light floral notes, mild malts, light hop bitterness, with light pine, resin, slight citrus......mouth feel, light body, no alcohol, high carbonation. This is a quite light APA in both hop and malt aromas and flavors. The bitterness is low, making for an easy drinking beer, that really misses the style. BJCP 6/3/12/4/5

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Appearance: clear medium gold with one fat finger of rocky off-white head, good retention and moderate lacing. (4/5) Aroma: oranges and lemons, tropical fruit, pale malt, pine. (7/10) Taste: moderate-low sweet, moderate bitter. (6/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5)
Smells pretty good, doesn’t taste quite as good. It’s one of those APAs that doesn’t really have the body or malt profile to support the hops, so it comes across as a little sharp and thin. It’s still OK, but nowhere near as good as e.g. their Maiden the Shade. At least it doesn’t suddenly drop off to a watery, thin finish the way some APAs do. (13/20)
