3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
6oz on tap at the brewery. Labeled on the menu as 5.5%, 36 IBU. Whoa, on first sip, my first impression is that it’s surprisingly hoppy. A big amount of cat-pissy c-hop. This batch is less "gateway", and closer to "session IPA". Some herbal hop, and mild resiny hop. Mild bready caramel malt. Very surprisingly hoppy. Is it a case of F.A.F.? I dig it. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Few bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Pretty awesome session IPA. Er, excuse me, I meant pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at North High. Unfiltered tan. A nice, hoppy, classic APA. Pleasant fruity aroma. Thickish malt tones compared to say, a Session IPA. A pinch odd, can’t put my finger on it. OK.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Even with several attempts, there was little to no aroma detected. Very basic looking pale ale, and disappointingly unbalanced. Although the bitterness was in attendance, the typical floral zest from the hops was not.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample at NHB. Poured a clear amber color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
