3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Poured from a can. Golden orange color, mostly clear. Head disappears quickly, minimal lacing. The aroma is subdued - light citrus hops. Taste is also mild - I typically go for IPA’s, so this is my general comment about most pale ales. It’s well balanced - the hops are citrus and a touch of pine. There’s also some lemon notes after you get past the hops. Carbonation and mouthfeel are right on - I was half way through this beer in no time. Once I slowed down a little, I realized the flavors started to open up more as the beer warmed up. Overall, a very good American pale ale.
Had this again on tap. Carbonation was more prominent. Still very good.

If I could give this beer less than zero it would still be to high, very first mouthful made my jaws water like I was going to puke. I cannot believe this beer gets such a high rating

Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush tap takeover, London. It pours a hazy orange color with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, fruity, with notes of citrus peel, tangerine, mango, ripe apricots, grass, orange marmalade. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter with notes of mango, apricots, pine cones, grapefruit, citrus leaves, grass. Finishes quite dry and bitter with resinous hops. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, really good APA

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz can pours dark red amber with finger of head. Nose and palate are both malt heavy and lack real substantial hop presence, puzzling as this can is hardly 2 weeks old. Malt sweetness and bitter, light citrus notes. Some subtle piney orange in there. A let down.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy golden color with a medium white head that left good lacing around the glass. The aroma is quite hoppy, some metallic, bready. The taste is citrusy hops with quite a bit of bitterness but it is not overpowering. There is some breadiness and alcohol noticeable as well. The mouth-feel is on the medium side.
