3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can from Sake Taniguchi (World Beer Market). Piney hop nose, some citrus, with tropical fruit. Dark amber color, thinwhite head, some lace. Citrus/pine hop initial, caramel behin it in mid palate and final. Medium-thin body, with some hop texture. Simcoe and Cascade bomb the nose. Hopping also dominates the flavor. Fun stuff, but it is definitely way overhopped.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw colored body.
The aroma is loaded with citrus: lemon and grapefruit mostly, and a little pine.
The taste is balanced. Great malt profile with the bitterness taking over halfway through. Lots of citrus here too.
The texture is crisp.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
5.5 % Can from CBB bought to ring in my 100th APA rating. Served in a lager glass. It pours a good-looking deep gold with a big fluffy head and a wonderful citrusy hop bouquet with a touch of dankness. The taste is tropical fruits, citrus, white grape and a light bitterness with a crisp finish. This is a very good hoppy pale ale that is lightly refreshing and quite satisfying.
