3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours from the bottle with a medium amber shade of pale and a modest, creamy off-white head. The aroma features a nice, subtle yet present hop profile, with a combination of lemon, earth, and pine. The flavor has a bit more of an herbal/earthy Noble hop kind of bitterness, but there is also a light malty sweetness to provide some semblance of balance. Although somewhat generously hopped, the texture is only somewhat resinous, with the overall mouthfeel being quite crisp and clean, making this one go down easy.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A decent pale ale, nothing too exciting about this one. I had a bottle that was a bit old and it showed. On tap this beer tasted significantly better, but was mellow, simple and somewhat unimpressive.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Poured into a DFH tulip glass a medium copper color with a slight white head. The aroma has a light citrus rind note with some florals. Medium/light mouthfeel. One of the more hoppier pales I have had before. Starts with a light caramel type flavors and then transitions into a hoppy resin citrus rind. Bitterness lingers on. No evidence of the alcohol.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours a light copper with a thin white head. Scent is bready and piney. Taste is bitter and citrus. Half way done, nice lacing. Not sure I would have called this an ipa seems more apa. Earthy/bready bitter aftertaste. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange/ruby with a white head. Aroma of caramel malt, bitter hops, and citrus. Flavor of plenty of caramel malt, bready malt with slight citrus, and bitter hops in the finish. A basic pale ale but well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draught, this pours a dark tea hue into the glass with a diminished head that leaves cascading lace reminiscent of light whipping cream. The nose is somewhat tannic and peppery. The flavors are of English hops, tea-like tannins, pepper and some dry citrus with a peppery peel finish. The body is medium and the mouthfeel would make for a great sessionista... very drinkable. Not overtly complex, but has substance and satiates the palate nicely. Great pub food brew, and pairs well with many foods. Good job.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From notes. Tasted from a bottle obtained as an extra in a trade. Pours hazy orange-amber with an average white head that leaves a bit of lace collar. The nose is caramel malt with a green hops aroma coming through nicely. The flavor is dominated more by the hops with the malty notes in more of a support role. The citrus flavors are nice with just a hint of nuttiness on the back as well. The body is light with lively carbonation and a long bitter and citrus hops finish.
