4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
In cask at NXNW. Nice citrus and flower nose with some sweet malt in the nose. Big citrus fruity flavor. Nice round and balanced flavor. Very drinkable. This is Ty’s IPA. He got rid of the old PyJino Pale and made this his own. Great job Ty!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy orange appearance. Leafy, musty hops: annibus like and with a sweet sugar and IPA-like gritty bitter texture. Mandarin orange flavors with a light bread note, caramel or crystal malts... juicy, sharp citrus finish. Impressive. I’ve heard that the recipe changed recently and that the new version actually contains hops :)

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Golden amber to light copper pour. Decent hop aroma and flavor, but could have used more. Pretty smooth. I agree with some of the others that this is about as good as it gets at this brewpub.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Had on tap at the brewpub in Austin. Light copper appearance, thin white head. Brief floral aroma. Flavor has some citrusy cascade hoppiness, but not overdone. Some nuttiness comes through to balance it out. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Decent APA.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Probably this place’s best offering, which isn’t saying much. Somebody, ANYBODY, tell the brewmaster to PLEASE USE SOME HOPS!!!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light copper color with a thick lacing white head. Fresh Cascade hoppy aroma. Sweet candy-like malt flavor and a dry finish. This could stand to gain a little more complexity and balance.

Wonder as ever w/ brewpubs how this compares to the last batch. Enjoyed. Plenty hoppy, a bit grainy and the hops seem ?? Well, I'm glad they're there - just wondering what kind was used? While not my favorite pale ale, I don't see there being any lack of bittering. I just want to have another to see if I can tell more what is in there.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Palest orange ever. Only the slightest hint of hops. Mostly some woody elements.

1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
An absolute disgrace. This is a catastrophe of cookie malts meeting semi-bright English hops at a sub-interesting threshhold. Barely finishable. I'm pissed off.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Slight woodiness and hoppiness in the flavor and finish. Perhaps served a few degrees too warm, and it seemed like it was off-balance, the maltiness was perhaps a bit too prominent. They really shouls hop this one more.
