2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
First serious rate in years, only because a friend asked for it (seriously, Johnny is my homey), I am following through.
The nose is typical of your regular pale ale, but it was a bit too malty and kind of weak. I think the hazy copper look is good for this beer. I donít dislike the flavors I find in this beer but Iím far from in love, hop heavy and some malty sweetness; but, it isnít balanced all that well.
The finish is a bit sticky and not a friendly bitter.
I wonít turn this beer down, I wonít grab a 6 pack on my way to a party either.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz Bottle. Picked up a variety pack at Giant Eagle on my way back to Chicago the other day. Pours a hazy burnt orangey-gold, big frothy slightly off-white head with ridiculous retention and lacing. Nose is light pine and grass. Mouth is medium bodied, lots of fruit -- peaches are the first thing Iím getting -- faint pineapple, pears, golden raisins, then toasted bread. Very light bitterness. I could down a pitcher of this stuff. Nice and sessionable. Cleveland fuckin ROCKS!!

Bottle thanks to Jsquire. Pours cloudy dark orange with large foamy off-white head, light floral hops aroma, low carbonation, balanced sweetish floral hoppy taste, mellow palate, medium malty finish. Nice and smooth, very easy to drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Portside has started bottling this beer, and the label says "Centennial hops". Light amber color with a short lived white head. This beer struck me as mostly malty. Caramel and bread crust nose with some yeast notes. Big caramel malt taste up front with a yeasty bread dough and earthy bitterness in the follow through. I donít get much citrus hop in this. The finish does have a bit of grassy bitterness to it. Not bad at all, but not the dry hopped pale ale I had hoped for.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice citrus and pine aroma, pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Just a touch of caramel sweetness, fading to a crisp, slightly bitter finish. Fairly light bodied, with a nice crisp flavor. A nice easy drinking APA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sample at Woodlandís Tavern. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium thin white head that dissipates quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, citrus and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, grainy malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a short hoppy aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.
