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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cloudy amber pour with a moderate light tan head. Hops and a little soapy aroma. Taste is decently choppy and smooth, albeit a little light on the palette. Not bad.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
From a can, looks like IPA, smells like pine IPA and tastes like mild IPA. Chunks floating around in my glass. On the finish, not as strong as a real IPA. Nice looking foamy thick head.

Balanced, with a nice hoppiness and a dry finish. Crisp, refreshing, light. A very good canned session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a bright orangish red with a full slightly off white head. Aroma contains has a good presence, but actually gives a more soft impression. Pine, orange, grass, and some bready notes are here with none of them really being dominant. Taste feels more grassy than anything else. Lemon notes and hops are easily tasted. Pine and some bready malts are in here as well. LIghter in body, thin in texture but not watery. Bitter throughout tasting with an easy aftertaste of pine and hops. Pretty good overall. A very nice beer.

12oz can from Park Tavern. Pours hazy orange with white head. Aromas of citrusy hops, sweet bready malts, and some pine. Flavor of sweet bready malts, citrus, pine, some hop bitterness. Kind of messy for a pale ale.
