1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
From bottle to pint glass. Weird metallic and cardboard aroma with some earth. Nice looking enough hazy deep orange with white head that leaves a collar. Cardboard and malt with a dank-like grassy hop background. Lots of oxidation and phenols here. Watery mouthfeel with a dry finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
July 25th, 2014 - We continue down the line of tasters here at the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, like an execution line, gobbling down the beer one at a time, and now it is the Glacial Pale Ale’s turn. The scent is light and hoppy, with a pronounced note of pineapple, but the flavor is heavier, sweeter and danker. Curiously, and wonderfully, there is also a heavy hit of spices like clove, and a powerful weedy note. Whichever hops they picked for this, it is expressing itself to the fullest, and while this is good, it is a striking change from the previous two samplers which were far milder and weaker.

This is a reasonbly good pale ale, refreshing, citrusy, all that, and very drinkable. But it suffers from a certain flatness of palate. I find the label a bit messy, too. Still, worthwhile.

"eh. not a very good pale ale. luckily just had a brewfest sample and hadn’t really paid for it. a light mix of bready malt and herbal hops that don’t quite mx. aftertaste was lacking."

On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aromas of orange peel, some grass, and bready malt. Kind of lemony, too. Flavor is lightly bitter. A fair amount of grass, orange peel, and a bit of lemons. Maybe some white grape and a light bread note.
