3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft into a tulip glass. Mostly clear gold with lasting head retention..the aroma gets me excited! Strong grapefruit, lemon and sweet bready malt with mild herbal hints. The flavor is an exactly a mirror image of the aroma and it is damn tasty. Bitterness is mild yet lingering and very much bright grapefruit. The body is perfect for more of a " let’s drink a shit ton of this!" Kind of aspect. Very nicely crafted.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bomber from Julio’s. Pours out a grassy light yellow color. Thin white head. Good carbonation. Light bready-citrus aromas. Flavor is very tart and bitter. Grapefruit rind notes. Very sticky finish. Not very refreshing at all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a medium golden color with a finger of foam. Nose is a mixture of toasted malts, pine, citrus. Palate follows with nice balance of hops and malt. Nothing very special just a solid easy drinking pale. Nice layers of citrus, earthy pine and a lingering bitterness that balances out the toasted grain nicely.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Grapefruit, pine, and biscuit aroma. Flavor is crisp with fruity, bitter hops and an underlying caramel malt sweetness. Bitter pine/citrus finish with a little spice. A tasty, easy-drinking beer that’s a really nice choice for a hot day.

Bright white head with good retention recedes to skim surface. Sourdough and grapefruit aromas. Medium bodied with caramel and bread upfront turning to marshmallow before the lasting earth and grapefruit finish.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours hazy golden with a lacy, white head. Aroma of fruity and lightly citrusy and piney hops, pale and lightly caramel malts, hints of grains, and some dough. Flavor the same with an average texture. A solid pale ale, but I wish the amarilla hops were a little more pronounced.
