3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a hazy amber color with a small white head that fades quickly. The nose smells faintly of baked apples and pine. The flavor has a slight butteriness paired with a fruity flavor up front, followed by a piney bitterness on the back end. Light to medium body with a short to medium finish. Decent.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a light chestnut color with a bubbly full white head. Sweet malt in the aroma, the oily resin smell of the hop with a clean crisp taste and the unmistakeable simcoe hop characteristics with slight bitterness finishing very cleanly and just enough body. An excellent slightly hoppy pale.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate white head. Nose is definitely hoppy with some great pine notes to it. A little bitter, but light and an easy drink. Good example of the style.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz into a pint. Right away the hops come off strong: nice and piney, resiny, full bodies slap your nose hop apeal. I love that in a beer. Aroma is reminisant of an ipa but a tad duller with the malt charateristics. Taste is bitter, hoppy, fulfilling for a pale ale, as the sweet nectar like qualities of this bring a round about satisfaction of a prestine enjoyment. Organis is what it says, organic is what its. I like it no matter what the label says. Orange bronze and tanned brown are the colors of this, looks nice in a glass. I think Ive found the perfect "spring" beer although I can see myself enjoying this one all the time if its available. the sessionable status also leaves me happy and ready for another. Solid brew here.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a clear golden, has a lumpy white head that lasted a good four minutes. There was barely any carbonation seen rising. The lacing is foamy all around the glass, the smell has pine and strong hops, taste is bitter through the pine and the hops, palate is light to medium, clean, sessionable, carbonation felt, pine aftertaste, no finish, overall this is a good brew, if I had this again, probably only on tap

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Very flavorful pale ale -- lots of hop pine and floral. Clear, golden, and lots of carbonation. Overall very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Coppery gold in color with a thin skim of white bubbles. Aroma carries the same green smell like a bag of hop pellets with spritzy citrus and pine notes and even a bit of lemongrass. Taste is like a weaker infused tea version of the aroma, which carries the herbal, grassy dry-hop components. It’s not unpleasant , just conspicuously dry-hopped. $2/12oz

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aromas of pine, flowers, vanilla, butter cream, citrus fruit, nuts, peach, and subtle apple. Orange-bronze with a mostly lasting, khaki head. Dry with a refreshingly snappy bitterness. Light-medium bodied with lively carbonation, and finishes with chai-like and floral tones.
