4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a slightly hazy amber, finger’s worth of tight cream colored head with fairly thick collar. Aroma is bready, tropical, some hop spice, some pine, faint medium malt. Taste is tropical/estery fruitiness. Malt lends a great caramel-like flavor. I’m leaning on this beer being a bit higher than the 6.5%. Not boozey, just get a feeling... High carbonation and surprisingly full bodied for a pale.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a hazy golden orange on tap with fluffy off-white head that dissipates to leave great lace. Aroma is strong on the hops, resinous citrus, tropical fruits, pine, and floral qualities all covering a faint pale malt. Taste follows, but a bit more balanced with the malt backbone. Good carbonation, medium thick body, very drinkable. Good stuff.

1/17/14. Pint on tap at Proof. Nice orange pour with a good thick khaki head and plenty of lacing. Awesome aroma, tons of fresh hops, citrus, floral, tropical fruits, and more. Nice flavor as well, shows the similar hop character, but the maltiness comes through more and makes it a touch sweet for my tastes. Still tasty.

Medium honey gold. Clear, candied west coast hop aroma. A bit kat whizzy and grapefruity. Good - not quite what I expected. Hoppy and biscuity. Dry, tangy, woody. Medium to slightly heavy mouth. Good CO2. Woody bitter finish. Citrus, wood, light caramel. Proof, on tap.
