2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Fresh can. Pours muddy orange, slight head. Aroma is floral, orange citrus, lavender. Taste is bitter hop, fishy (I know, odd description...but it is), some honey. Nothing stands out, no real balance.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Karl Strauss pint glass
From: Whole Foods in Boise, Idaho
Price: $8.99 for a mix and match variety 6-pack
Purchased: Dec. 19, 2013
Consumed: Dec. 28, 2013
Poured an amber orange hazy color with about four fingers of off-white frothy head. An above average amount of sporadic foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down.
Smelled a pleasant whiff of floral hops up front. Also citrus hops - lemon zest, lime and faint grapefruit. Some grass hops, honey and light vomit late. The smell doesn’t hold as long as I’d hope.
Tasted not as much as the smell as I would have thought. More like a pale ale here. Got slightly bitter floral hops, citrus hops - lemon and orange peel, and faint lime and grapefruit. Grassy, honey and wheaty.
Medium-to-full body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Soft carbonation. Bitter finish.
I really liked this beer. Just a very good pale ale.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Purchased from Albertsons in 12 oz cans. A bit flat. Not much body. A bit medicinal. Decent happiness, but needs more body to balance.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can:   Darker amber, slight haze, large foamy sandy head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet citrus peel and powdery sugar aroma.   Smooth and citrusy sweet on the tongue, very much candied.   Low hop bitterness.
Sweeter example, and rather smooth.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   More of a hop bitterness and less sweet on the finish.   Still has a powdery sweet aspect tho.   Nice sweet start, hops come out on the backside.
Decent, but sometimes that powdery sweet aspect gets a little artificial.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Rather dark, bitter, malty and robust for a pale. hefty, but good. I like pales a little lighter and crisper though.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice hoppy pale ale, dark golden in color with thick foamy head. Decent lacing, aroma is hops, slightly sour malt. Taste is hops, bread, malt with slightly metallic finish. Not bad at all.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Excellent Pale Ale, made more delicious by the proximity of the brewery and the freshness. Full flavored pale, with perhaps a stronger hop finish then most. Try it, you will not be disappointed.

Lightly hazed golden amber with a thin off white head.
Nose is caramel malt, light hops, bitter orange notes.
Taste is malt forward, sugars, light grapefruit, orange pith, touch of hops.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, light hop bitterness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Fedora in CDA, ID. Slightly hazy golden pour with a lacy white head. Not much aroma here, but I’m getting some piney, citrusy nose. Bittersweet flavor. Flavors of pine and catbox. Thin body with soft carbonation. Crisp and refreshing but it’d be better with a bigger body and more carbonation.
