3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Serving: 12 oz. Bottle from Wegmans Leesburg. It pours a nice gold color with a small white head. The nose faint with a slight graininess. The flavor has some sweetness up front with a touch of grain and a slight bitterness on the back end. Very sessionable fare for the summer months but a little lacking flavor wise.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Smells pleasant, sweet herbs and grassy. Poured clear copper with a thin white head. Taste is all citrus, lemon comes on strongest, but overall kind of bland. Fizzy and tingly in the mouth.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle, shared by the fine folks at Hank is Wiser brewery, while admirable for the description the beer is lacking in execution, a poorly hoppy APA which concludes on the skunky flavor of a heineken. No thanks.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a finger and half of head on a mostly clear, medium straw colored body.
The aroma was faint: grain and citrus of what there was.
The taste is clean with moderate lemon bitterness. Fairly simple, but good.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
Itís a solid ale and an easy drinker.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle. Pours a golden color with a thin off white head with lots of carbonation. Grapefruit aroma from hops comes through. Thereís a nice hop bite throughout but a good balance and very accessible. Its nice to have so much flavor from a beer with ABV of 4.7%. Good session beer.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Love me some DP, but not so much this beer. Pale orange pour with a small white head. Very soft citrus nose. Taste is fairly bland - kind of a watery APA. Not bad, just not even close to interesting.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Citrus aroma, fluffy head, golden bodied ale. Light bitterness and body. gateway beer for macro drinkers. Right taste and alcohol for a business lunch or an all day tailgate.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Medium brass gold body with a bright white head. Nose of faint citrus and bread crust. The taste is light and smooth with only a hint of potatoes and just a touch of oranges. I like the Dan Patrick Show, but this is weak sauce. So light, itís barely there for an APA. This is more like a watered down amber. Meh.
