2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale amber orange with thick white head. Aroma strong of citrus hops, pine, and slight malt. Flavor matches, but just appears to be missing something. Mouthfeel is very slick and aftertaste is not pleasant.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Lots of grassy aroma. Light yellow color with white head. Taste is more grass, bitter citrus. Some cereal grain flavor. Man this unbalanced toward the bitter side. Palate seems about right for a pale ale.

O- This smelled like I just mowed my front lawn. Usually I hate that smell but for some reason I didn’t mind it here. Really grassy and flower throughout. Fairly light for a pale ale.

Crisp. Not much of a hoppy flavor or a malty flavor. Kind of a bland flavor.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured into a perfect pint.
3.0 A: Clear light orange color. Two fingers of frothy off-white head. Retention is below average and a short ring of irregular lacing is left.
3.25 S: Not a lot going on in this, but it’s still pleasant. Floral and lightly citrusy hops. Mild neutral malt sweetness. Clean.
3.25 T: Taste is pretty much the same as the nose. Not a lot to say. Neutral malt, mild bitterness, and lightly floral and citrusy hop flavor.
3.5 M: Lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Light creaminess.
3.0 D: Pretty much average all around. Not bad, just average.

12 oz bottle for 25 cents from Hy Vee Wine & Spirits in downtown Muscatine. Dark orange and clear appearance with a small off-white head. Aroma of grass, pine, light soap, herbal hops, toasted grains and floral notes. Similar flavor, adding some citrus zest and a mild to moderate spicy hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry finish. Decent pale ale overall.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 2/18/2015. Pours slightly hazy golden straw color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, cracker, bread, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, cracker, bread, light honey, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, pineapple, pine, cracker, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish fora good bit. Damn nice robustness and complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a nice crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice pale ale. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
