2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draught at the Nodding Head. Pours red with a ight white head. Nose is malty and citrus with slight hints of hops, flowers, and grass. Flavor is bitter, but not in a good way. The balance is way off on this one. Looking at the previous ratings, I wonder if the recipe has changed as this has a lot of hop character. Average brewpub pale ale.

Real strange pale ale, way too much citrus for me, it had a grapefruit taste which I really don’t like. It was amber in color and went down fine though.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Light malty aroma with a lemon and citrus hoppiness. Pours a clear, medium amber with an average, off-white, and lasting head. Slightly sweet with a moderate amount of bitterness and a touch of salt. Finish is slightly acidic with a "kick in the teeth" hoppy bite that lingers long after it goes down. Excellent hops! Medium-bodied with an oily and fizzy texture. (Draft at brewpub in Philly)

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours pail amber. Aroma of fresh citrus and lightly floral hops. Flavor is a nice fres hop with a weak watery maltiness failing to provide a backbone. Palate is rather thin.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught @ Brewery: Smelled hoppy and floral, though not as strong as the 3C. Poured amber/brown color with a good head and fair lacing. Tasted of hops, spicy hops. Maybe some nutty notes as well. Easy to drink. Overall, not dry enough for me.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Peachy gold. Nose hoppy and citric, not much else. Flavor very better and bready, oddly lagerish in its finishing hops. Far too bready. Not a good thing.

I’m a hop-head so I enjoyed this beer. Not as good as Victory’s Hop-devil but comparable. Sweet, hoppy, citrus aroma. Cream-white head. Reddish-gold and very tasty.
