4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Aroma is pine, spices and a hard to pinpoint hint of big body, almost IIPA. The flavor is citrus, berry/slightly sweet hops, malts, rather large body for an APA, complex tropical fruit and a bitter/tart finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fruit floral aroma, looks are a light medium gold, clear, soapy head, lace. Aroma is ripe fruit and floral. Mild citrus and pepper. Some yeasty breadyness. Some metallic mineral as it warms. Same in taste, with mild malt, mild caramel, smooth creamy easy. Body seems full, medium full. I thought it was watery at first, but that’s not the case. Pretty good pale ale overall

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at Ox Cart Ale House for the commonshawn bday extravaganza. 16 oz kind of fluted pint glass. Lighter golden in color with a half finger of white head. Aroma has mild hops with almost a wheat quality. It’s giving me the impression I’m about to drink a session IPA. Taste follows suit but has a nice balance to it. Grapefruit and tangerine come to mind. Slight bitterness but offset by a lemon drop citrus candy like sugar. I’m liking it as a drinkable option. Nothing amazing but solid.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a thin ivory head, medium retention, with slight lacing, over a clear, yellow (SRM 3) body.......nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, light cereal malts, no esters, hops dominant......taste is dry throughout, pine, resin grapefruit peel from the hops, light malts, no esters, hops dominant......mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, medium carbonation. This is a relatively light beer compared to many in the space. It is American type hop dominated, but otherwise needs rework of the malt back bone. BJCP 7/3/12/4/7

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brilliant golden with a foamy white head. Big earthy resinous and delightfully floral nose. Perhaps a touch of sweet lemon on the aroma as well. Full flavor with a nice seasionable body, and a nice rounded and balanced profile with crisp pale malt evenness, built upon by a smooth floral, grassy, crisp hoppy balanced bitterness. Beautiful floral flavor with a lovely lemon kiss and pale malt body.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A sweet and citrusy piney aroma come from this hazy yellow brew. The taste is the same. A light/medium body, crisp, not much sweet but pleasantly bitter with tiny carb bubbles. A nice front porch brew. The aftertaste is citrusy bitter.
