3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Rich aroma of malt and fruit. Already in the fragrance is no doubt this is a true American, it radiates namely real west coast pale ale with its fruity aroma hops blended malt. The foam is persistent and a little rough. Lovely rich flavor where the malt adds a delicate fruity sweetness which perfectly taken over by hops and bitter aftertaste. Perfect balance between sweetness and bitterness, long lasting and slightly spicy aftertaste. Lots of good American hops.

12th September 2015
Bright clear amber beer, bubbly pale cream colour head. Palate is dry and has a fine minerally crispness. Thin malts with a little toffee but not much sweetness. Mild marmalade hops. Sharpish pine. Light minerally finish. The basis of a well hopped Amber but it’s a little thin.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
35.5cl bottle, served in Shaker. Pours amber with medium white frothy head. Aroma is earth, herbs, resin and hints of caramel. Taste is the same, both hops and malts are very well balanced. The long spicy finish seems rather short, but it is dry and there’s almost no sweetness left on the palate, which is ideal. Medium body, perfect carbonation. Very good job!

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle Rudat via Derer, bb10/2015... Elegant red copper pour. Alas this is one of those transatlantic ale imports from the West Coast that loses a lot in aroma in transition and cross-distribution to online shops: much has been lost and both condensed and thinned out into refined sugar crystal malts (cf. cans of Jai Alai that make it over), with a touch of berry shrub, wood, wet bark. Still packs a dry-elegant pine punch in taste over red copper malts: berry peel, dried citrus rinds and an assortment of woody pines join measured thin fruit caramels, towards again a dry bitter finish. (Chinook?)

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
A really nice red pale combo. Good orange red coloring. Scent is heavy with hops and malts. Taste has standard red favor and nice balance of hops, not over the edge. Tap

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 fl. oz. bottle from Club de Cervezas. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white fluffy head that laces well leaving a small film. Aroma is cleanly hoppy, grassy and a little bit spicy. Hints of hay, green tea, light citrus and herbs. Solid grainy malts are felt through retronasal. Taste is bitter and citrusy, crisp and refreshing, like a half-IPA or a heavy-bodied Pilsener. Not much on the malt department, but tightly bitter. Medium body, lively carbonated. Quaffable and very refreshing. Easy drinking and sessionable. Good APA.
