3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy burnt orange. Fair head. No lacing. Taste is kind of a jumbled mess. A bit too bitter. Not that well balanced. It’s a bit harsh.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark straw color. Smallish bright white head that lasted until the end of the glass. Big lacing. Mild grain aroma. Flavor of citrus bitter, but not a bitter that I particularly enjoyed. Very dry. I’m not a big PA fan. This one seemed to have a lot of bitter without substance behind it.

12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly hazy orange/copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, peach, melon, citrus peel, light pine, caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice American pale ale. All around good complexity, balance, and robustness of juicy citrus/tropical hops and moderate bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

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.
