3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Pour Judgement - Newport, RI. Light catty hop aroma. Flavors are crisp, but maybe not quite as rich as they could be. That said, the hop flavors are really clean and singular. Plenty of bitterness to boot. A decent hoppy pale ale.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Norm’s, 4/11/12
Aroma: The nose is citrus fruits and a little floral hops, and some malty notes
Appearance: Pours a hazed, brightish orange color, with a white head and fairly heavy lacing
Flavor: Light-mid sweet and light-mid bitter, fairly balanced, similar to the nose: citrus, herbal and floral
Palate: The body is fairly light, with a fairly easy drinking feel, but there’s something slightly off in the finish
This one was alright. It is nothing particularly exciting, but it is plenty drinkable and it has some decent components to it as well.

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.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

Piney grapefruit aroma. Soft deep amber color with a light filmy head. Sharp bitter start. Clean dry finish. Refreshing and light. Nice example of the style.
