3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Not sure how important organic is, but it smells great! Lots of tangerine and hops with a light aroma of wet-mowed grass. The taste was pretty hoppy and bitter... this is NOT an IPA!? Finishing dry and clean, this beer reminds me of a solid IPA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This one straddles the line between a standard pale and something hoppier. It has a grassy citrus and pine aroma and a lightly hazed orange color. Found the taste to be predominantly grapefruit, and hopped just enough to avoid being truly bitter. 55 BUs maybe. Good medium body, very crisp. Better than the same brewer’s india.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was tasted at the Capital Ale House in Innsbrook on their "steal the glass night". This APA was very mild, The clear color and nice head were the strong points. I fail to see the benefits of organic ale. I need to learn what is positive about that. This was a mild verison of APA. Some mild bitterness but very tame. Smooth finish with no bitter aftertaste.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Different brew; instead of the resin/citrus slam there’s more of a cut grass flavoma that is comfortably pleasing. Radical change for the good. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is grass, hop, malt. Flavor is like nose with emphasis on grass. Body is easy, chewy, and drinkable. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, and just flat out good.

Poured a light brown with small white lacing. Not much smell...hops and wheat mainly. A nice conflux of fruits and hops in the taste. Watermelon? Light, creamy texture. More hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Nose is grain and sweet, floral hops. Light bodied. Has a grainy, corny quality. Rough around the edges.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a clear brown-orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of simcoe hops (very sweaty and grassy) with a hint of tropical fruits and citrusy notes. Flavor is quite hoppy upfront with again citrus, sweat, and sweet fruits. Some caramel and bready malt in the finish. This is a hoppy and tasty APA.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazes orange pour with white head and lace. Catpee and bready malt. Sweet malt with a very hard bitter. Thin and watery just a tad out of balance but drinkable.
