4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce can into pint glass, bottled on 10/9/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep golden yellow color with a 2 finger fairly dense and fluffy off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Nice dense foamy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the head. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, berry, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, light honey, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, berry, lemon zest, orange peel, light pepper, pine, light honey, cracker, bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate pine/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, mango, berry, lemon/orange zest, light pepper, pine, bread, and herbal/floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Light-moderate dryness from bitterness as well. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth and moderately sticky/creamy/bready balanced mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/tropical/piney hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can @ The Andersons / Columbus OH --- Hazy medium amber color, sloppy white hEad, cobweb lacing. Aroma of hops and malt. Taste is solid caramel malt that becomes sweeter as it moves through a lightly carbonated swallow, moving from there to enough hops to balance, but not enough to overtake the sweet malt. A solid "traditional" Pale Ale. I like it.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz. can. Pours pale yellow, with a small, off-white head. The nose is melons, light pine, and butterscotch. Flavor is sweet and lightly malty, with a mild bitterness. The mouthfeel is light, a bit astringent, and kinda flat. Not a bad pale ale, with a good, easy aroma and a pretty balanced flavor.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Hazy golden yellow out of the can with a quickly dissipating white head. Nose of citrus hop flowers. Straight forward pale ale with a bit of grassy bitterness and orange peel citrus and tropical fruit sweetness over a bread dough backbone. Long hoppy finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz. can from Dutch’s. Pours a cloudy gold with a finger of eggshell colored head that laces the glass and leaves a lasting film atop the liquid. Notes of citrus fruits, pale and lightly sweet malts, grass, florals, tea, and minerals. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a smooth, light, refreshing, slightly sweet mouthfeel that finishes dry. This is shockingly good compared to other North High beers I’ve had so far, none of which have been good. It drinks like a session IPA. Maybe that’s the can messing with me. But it’s good.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a $2 can slightly colder than room temp. Very nice white head on a pale ale. Big hop feel on a medium ipa thang. Decent co2 visual and on the tongue. Sweet? Not sure. Goes down fairly easy for how warm it is. Can’t discern mildly fumy off beer aroma. You’d think it would smell a little like ipa, good or bad, but no.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at North High from notes. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have a decent amount of herba, catty hop character, pale toasted malts, ddecent bitterness for an APA, the finish was a bit strange.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
North high pale ale is a light golden beer with a full head of small white bubbles. None is crisp with biscuit, hay and some earthy tones. Taste is crisp, clean and dry. Good malt and an nice amount of slight bitters. Body is lightly bubbly.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy gold with white head and good lacing. Aroma is the best part of this beer. The Mosaic comes through nicely with good melon and fruitiness. Surprisingly hoppy. The taste starts out the same as the aroma, but quickly shifts to an overly dry and bitter finish.
