2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22 oz bottle, pint glass. Toasted light bread malt (L); grapefruit hops (M); white grapes aroma. Smells a lot like SNPA. Tall, creamy, white head is slowly diminishing and is on a deep amber body. Moderately sweet, moderately acidic flavor becomes a moderately bitter, moderately acidic finish. The bitterness is clinging. Medium body, watery texture, heavy carbonation. The bottom line is: nothing new here.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not a bad beer. NIce amber color with a small white head left some nice lacing...lots of yeast floaties in the glass. Flavor has some slighty assertive hop character which brings it its mild citrus flavor but could've used a little more malts to really have something nice

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This is really not a bad pale ale, but definitely not the greatest. Slightly off balance, with a cascadian hop taste, that is slightly sweet with a bit of a sour aftertaste. Way too acidic, with not enough of a malt character to make this enjoyable.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice light grapefruity aroma. Head dissipated rather quickly. Bitterness a little over balanced with a solidly bitter aftertaste. A decent beer.

Good hoppy citrus aroma. Nice level of bitterness, with a slight bite at the finish. A good session pale ale.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
An easy drinking pale ale. Orange body, small head, good lacing. The hops had a real "orange juice" flavor to it, with some of the rind thrown in for lingering bitterness. On the thin side, but I would like to drink this again on a hot summer day.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Well the appearance is good. A hazy orange with a large creamy white head. An odd aroma that took me awhile to figure out but when I did it was disturbing, CAPERS. Ugh a pickled beer. To think of all the beers I could of brought back from CA I lugged this one, god am I an idiot.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a nice honey gold with a fluffy white head. Complex aroma with hints of malt, hops, fruit, and honey. Bitter attack on the taste that opens up into a fruity sweetness that quickly evaporates into a strong hoppy leave.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light amber in color with tons of foam and a nose that reminded me of green olives. Odd bitterness that tasted like an orange rind left in the sun too long. Apple fruit in the flavor, but the orange bitterness is stonger. Different APA.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear copper color with a nice thick beige head. The aroma was of sweet apple hops balanced with a biting flowery hops bitterness...some caramel...some malt. The flavor was not bitter at all, just more of the fruity sweet hops and malt. Creamy mouthfeel. Very average APA...nothing outstanding here at all.
