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

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.

Tap. Golden with foamy cream lead and decent lacing. Smells piney/grapefruity. Light bitter flavor, with a hint of grain, and a hint of butteriness. Not quite crisp, moderately carbonated, light dry finish.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Associated Supermarket, Bushwick sixer ($11): Pours a copper color with a white head. Aroma is pine with some nondescript citrus bordering on lemon, along with pale malts. Taste is bitter simcoe throughout without much else happening. The maltiness is pretty lame. Nice pine, but without anything to back it up, this is just not interesting. Minimal aftertaste. Medium-light body. Meh.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2013 Draught at Stags Head NYC. Pours slightly hazy orage/gold/apricot in color with a big white head. The aroma was an intense citrus hop smell, really nice. There is an overload of grapefruit in the aroma as well as the taste, which I love. Incredibley balanced with a piney citrus finish. really comples and smooth finishing. A great pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at ACAT. Pours a clear gold with a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grassy hops with a bit of pine, a touch of onion and a grain back. Flavor starts with light grain and becomes grassy with a bit of pine and resin in the finish.
