3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled draught at R.F.McDougall’s in Richland, WA
Hazy amber color, light head, some lacing. Nose of crisp hops, light malt, some sugar. The flavor is malty, somewhat thin but hoppy. Finishes light, thin, watery, how else can I say this? It needs more body. Nice hopping level though for a APA.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy orangey-amber colour. Citrusy, berryish aroma. The palate is lightly hoppy - citric with a faint bready malt backbone. It’s a lighter APA but not bad.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Light gold color, medium head, somewhat cloudy. A light bodied pale ale. More hoppy than malty. Slightly off taste?? (Old beer, still fermenting, excessive hoppyness) Can’t quite figure out what the off taste is. Mouthfeel is hoppy. Finish is crisp. Aftertaste is bitter.
