3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. A dense, off-white head forms over a more or less clear dark golden body. Fresh aroma of orange, pine cones and generic citrus, leaving the malts in the back. Rather thin on the palate, with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Bitterness, pine cones and orange peel in the flavor. Bitter, orangey finish. A bit weak on both aroma and flavor, but overall, a tasteful and pleasant beer. 130819

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
From a can or on draft, this is one of my favorite pale ales, on par in my opinion with Oskar Blues Dales Pale Ale. It has a wonderful hoppy, citrus aroma. Flavor is hops, citrus; well balanced. Mouthfeel is crisp, strong, full-bodied.

This was pretty decent. Orange in color, but with some hops in the body. Iíd call this a pale ale (labeled under some local barís name). Pretty easy to drink.

This is pretty much the same as their IPA but a bit more citrus then pine and less of it. Again, a decent beer but really lacks a kick to get me excited.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 fl oz / 355mL can into a pint glass. Served cold.
Aroma: Same hoppy profile in Hopshock. Not as strong, but definitely that same piney, citrusy northwestern hop profile. Subtler hop profile, and a little bit stronger malt.
Appearance: Clear dark amber. White-ish head quickly dissipates.
Taste: Delicious balance between those hops and the malt. The arrival is citrusy, piney hops. The finish is some nice, sweet malts. The in-between is where the magic happens.
Palate: Medium body, short-medium finish.
Overall: Great beer for getting people off of AB InBev and miller-coors swill. A nice introduction into craft brews. However, it also stands well on its own. Quite good.
