4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy amber pour with frothy off white head. Hop heavy spruce aroma but the toasted bread malt is easily identified. The taste is a complex symphony of multiple bitter yet refined hops playing tag with the sweet malt. Hop forward. This brew is a medium bodied pale ale with a drawn out finish. Odell, I heart you.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle. Clear gold with a medium white head. Aroma of pine and citrus. Taste--the hop profile featured pine and grapefruit and reminded me a lot of SNPA, but the malt base was much sweeter with a dose of caramel. The palate was full and crisp. Finished short and sweet. Overall: A decent pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz. bottle from Zach. Dark, hazy orange color, with a medium, bubbly, white head. Nose is caramel, grapefruit, butter toffee, chalk, and some resin. Fairly sweet, with a good bitterness. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and a bit astringent. This is a solid, malty, and pretty aggressive pale ale. Very creamy and thick.

Bottle picked up the other day at the Co-op… not quite sure why I’ve walked past this one so many times, but I’m glad to have finally tried it. The color is a flat orange color with a two-finger creamy beige cap. Aroma is bright with fruity hops and light malt. Good hop flavors, lightly sweet with a pretty decent bitterness. Soft bready malts. Good stuff, I would love to see it in cans for the summer outdoor excursions.

Cloudy copper in color with a thick light tan head. Aroma of citrus and some spruce. Some carmel maltiness in the flavor followed with light citrus hops. Aftertaste of light bitter pine. Crisp mouthfeel with some carbonation.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle pours clear golden with a small white head. Aroma is somewhat hoppy, citrus/orange with green tea and floral notes. Flavor is a herbal, leafy English pale ale flavor with a touch of sweet malt. Medium bodied and fairly crisp. Decent, but not terribly memorable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Smell hints at tropical fruits but really mainly straight up and down pale and hops on the nose. First thing you get is a pleasing dryness - comes on like a rye beer. Not a great deal more to it than that. You get some fresh grapefruit at the back but more of a hint than full on flavour. Nice but not a keeper.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Have had a few various times. This rating is from a bottle, poured into a glass. Deep golden pour. Thick, foamy white head. Aroma of citrus and grass. Taste is floral, very lightly bitter, grassy, some orange marmalade. Finish is sweet, lightly dry. Pretty refreshing and enjoyable. Solid, but nothing special.
