3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. can, $9 per 6 @ Binny’s. Yet another local brewpub on store shelves. This one canned yet. This one pours dark orange, and pretty cloudy. Bubbly pale ale head. Smell has some nice hop florals to it, citrus and light pine on the back end. Taste is more malty, even a bit sticky. Hops are settled in for balance, unlike most small brewers’ pale ale. That would make this beer suffer in comparison to other hop bombs, but its a nice beer either way. Malts a little thick to qualify as a lawnmower beer, which is where my mind is this extended weekend. But it would be a good dinner beer.

This one is citruscy and soapy flavored. Easy to drunk and nice and hoppy. Pours light yellow with a thick white head. Had at Wild onion.

One if the better pale ales I have tried. Really smooth and easy to drink. Really good even out of a can

Aroma pine, some citrus and a note of caramel..Orange amber color with a white head. Sweet malt up front...kind of off. Piney bitterness next. Finish is a bit unbalanced.with a weird after taste.

12 ounce can from Binny’s. Malty and fruity esters without much of a hop bite to it. Ok but glad I only bought one.

Tap at the brewpub. Light orange pour with a spotty white head. Mild grapefruit aroma. Palate is thin and a bit watery. Lower flavor.

Hazy amber color with white head. Can really smell the cascade hops. Perhaps a little bitter for the style.

12 oz can. Pours a very hazy, almost opaque deep orange. Pretty color. Large sustained off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with citrus. Some earthy smell. Tastes of citrus and herbs. Bitter grapefruit finish that lingers. Decent.

Fucken can offered @ gmellison. Got this bad boy in a trade with Adumb. Thanks! Really fucken murky, dark orange appearance with a white head. Orange blossom, citrus, fruit cocktail, powdery / potpourri aroma. Flavor is ok. Pretty chalky / mineralic but once you get past that it has a decent citrus / floral thing going one. Mouth feel is again a bit powdery. Moderate to high bitterness. Not awful and actually better than I was expecting based on the appearance and aroma, but not something I’d buy again.
