4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Golden hue with thick creamy white head that lingered nicely. Aroma is mango, tangerine, melon, papaya, pineapple, Dragonfruit, slight grass. Mouthfeel is wonderful with medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a great hop bitterness in the following and a clean finish. Overall this is a fantastic pale ale!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from bottle into snifter, cloudy gold, light head, soft nose. Good body and subtle flavor but not watery at all. Quite smooth and well balanced, wish Prairie made more brews like this instead of focusing on sours, saisons, and farmhouse so much.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a hazy apricot with a decent eggshell head. Pleasant aroma is malty and fruity but not too sweet. Malty flavor has hoppy, sweet fruity and hay notes. Texture has average viscosity and fizz. Game on!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle served in a Dog Fish Head IPA glass
A - Pours a hazy/ruddy burnt orange, firm 2 finger head that droops average lacing.
S - Earthy yeast, green vegetal hops, green peppers, chives, spicy floral, lemon, not-sweet grapefruit rind, rustic, peppery, generic pale malts.
T - Bittering hops upfront, earthy floral, rustic woody hops, lemon oils, spicy herbal notes, bitter grapefruit oils runs strong against pale toasted barley, citrus comes out more as it warms along with some resinous pine. The finish is bitter greens with toasted grassy afterthought.
M - Full bodied, hefty feel, moderate whipped/creamy carbonation,
I like the different hop profile. Non-typical and complex. Plenty of hops with a rustic yeast pushing back. The more I drink this the more I like it. This is a stand out among it’s class.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle thanks to soonerchamps. Pours a cloudy amber color with a small foamy head that quickly fades to ring. Aroma is fresh hops, lots of citrus, flowers, pineapple, and some herbs. Taste is a slight step down from the aroma. Somewhat juicy citrus hops and flowers but a light plastic taste shows up. Pretty dry finish too. Solid APA with a really good aroma but the taste and finish could be better.

Bottle, thanks to lumpsowers, 11/4/2013. Pours cloudy golden orange, fizzy white head dies to light hazy island on the surface, small ring of lacing around the glass. Aroma is light orange, melon, peach, really nice fruity hop notes, dry toasted straw. Taste is citrus hops, candied melon, with sharp piney component, bitter grassy finish. Light body, crisp, drinks pretty easy. Thought this was pretty solid.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a clean medium golden color with a finger of white foam. The nose is volatile with traces of acetone and melted plastic mixing with a light pale malt and a touch of citrus. The palate follows with a decent beer hidden behind a shroud of offness translating as melted plastic phenolic... yuck.
