2.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
KUA bottle. Pours a dark tan, murky in color. Aroma is rich, with ripe strawberry and papaya. Taste starts grassy, earthy, then ripe melon in the finish. Becomes thin, watery after a few sips. Hard to see how this is a pale ale color and taste-wise.

Aroma of lemon starburst. Appears clear yellow with a light ring of white foam. Taste is overwhelming sweet lemon with a touch of bitter rind. Palate, fizzy and nice. Overall, decent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy and dingy gold with little head and aromas of pineapple, grapefruit and a little honey biscuit. Flavor is sharply hoppy with a kind of grain dust malt presence that gets in the way. That said, the initial blast of grapefruit (not sure where the Amarillo is hiding in the flavor) is nicely executed.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very flowery hops taste. Slight head holds well. Nice amber color. Slightly bitter with dry finish. Good citrus blend.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle labeled K.U.A. Pours a burnt orange color. Aroma of caramel, mild citrus and pine hops. Flavor is bitter. Somewhat uninteresting. Some average citrus and caramel notes are hanging around. Otherwise, somewhat boring. I feel like the malt profile is there but there’s something stale about the hops. Medium bodied. Meh.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from a 12oz bottle, six pack from West Main Party store in Kalamazoo. Clear amber brew with off white head. Great hoppy aroma - cirtus, tropical fruit. Taste is pleasant sweet malts at the start, decent citrus and resinous hops midway and a final flourish of fabulous citrus and tropical fruit in the end, clean finish with aromatic hops and very light sweetness. Full bodied but agile. Most impressive.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap. Golden with small head. Light bodied pale ale. Fairly strong fruity hops. Crisp finish. Despite the description, I would not describe this as "malt forward", though that’s not a criticism.

On Draft at O’Malley’s in Livonia. Decent American Pale Ale. I would call it more of a weak IPA. My first beer from this Brewery.
