2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Came in the sampler pack taht I had bought just for the White (which was pretty dissapointing). Just an average beer. Nothing really stood out as different. Copper with no head. Smells piney. There is a hop presence with some caramel sweetness. Not much for mouthfeel and the aftertaste is too dry.

There wasn’t anything particularly memorable about this beer, whcih is good because that measn it wasn’t bad, but bad because that means it wasn’t really worth buying again.

I think it’s good! My homebrewed pale is better, but for a lower-priced commerical pale, this is very serviceable. And it’s very reasonably priced. I’ll buy this again.

Copper. Nose has a faint hint of Cascades, but a bit funky. Citric hops are there in the flavor, but it kind of tastes like a real pale ale that’s been watered down due to the thin malts and weakened hops.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew poured a small sized white colored frothy head of fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a transparent softly carbonated amber colored body and a fair lacing. The aroma contained notes of mild caramel and was very hoppy. The mouth feel was initially strong and tingly with a hop rush in the finish that mellowed after a while along with its tingle. It had a hoppy flavor with mild caramel and malty notes. Not too hoppy for me and rather well balanced.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A light amber color with a thin head. The aroma is toasted caramel and hint of pine and oranges. Nice relatively strong aroma for an APA. The taste is toffee and grapefruit. Greasy and slick mouthfeel. There is also some slight tobacco in this. A fairly nice brew, but needs a little more body.

Pours gold with a reasonable head, heavy carbonation. Aroma is mellow and wonderful hops, very nice. Flavor is less impressive, and pretty well balanced. There are better, but this one is tasty and cheap.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy orange with a small white haed. Aroma is of fresh,clean hops with a little citrus thrown in there. Flavor is piney hops with the right amount of malts. Easy to drink and even non hops heads could find this pleasing.
