2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Watery and a bit astringent, this beer is certainly not a 55. Strange hop flavors that were very off par from normal APAs.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amusing that theyíre self-labeling as a "Session IPA" at 5.6% abv, way to run that idea into the ground. Nose is light caramel, orange rind, touch of mineral and saggy yeast metabolites, but the candyish Amarillo character is coming through nicely. Hazy golden is more orange at the top, very slow and light carbonation, soapy white head. Lightly crisp and fruity taste, dries out somewhat over time, has brushes with wheat character (presumably Iím remember the next point ) but otherwise sticks to Gumballhead-like hoppiness with a little tang and mineral character, more tangerine and orange than anything else. Actually getting some of the malt here, which is nice, but itís thin and flat, which is not. Medium body, refreshes well enough, Iím down.

Bottle from my brother over the 4th. Straw pour with nose of hopcitrus, some breadiness. Tasted of bready caramel malt, hopcitrus, but subdued hops, and a mild finish. OK, not great.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Small white head thats short lived, little bit of stringy lace left behind. Hazy, gold coor. Faint nose of citrus and grain. Light bodied, watery, slight carbonation. Hop water with some fruity notes. Finishes dry with little bite. Drinkable but bland. 12oz bottle from statelineliquors.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper body under a small fizzy white head that faded to a thin ring. The nose is rather intensely hoppy for just an APA, and especially intense given what I have come to expect from this brewery. Bright and herbal with some floral notes over a lightly caramel malt base. The flavor is a little lacking in bitterness, but thereís a fair amount of green hop flavor. Pretty well on the drier side, but a little sweetness towards the finish. Lighter bodied with soft fizzy carbonation and some lingering green leafy hops. Meh, there are some good and some bad aspects to this one. Overall a lower tier APA.

I thought this was a very good pale ale. Had this in a bomber and I wish I would have had more.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Travilah Wine & Beer, Rockville 750ml ($7): Pours a brownish color with a white head. Aroma is of citrus and resin and a malt backbone. Taste is somewhat bitter, with a good balance struck with the malts. Overall, this is well-balanced and worthy of a drink.

Draft. Pours clear gold with off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is mostly citrus and floral hops with some bread malt notes. Flavor is initially malt, but quickly transitions to bitter, citrus hops. Medium body, light/medium carbonation, and low warmth.
