2.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Aroma is great - floral, citrus, caramel - a good blend. Looks decent in the glass, a cloudy dark orange. The taste is a mixed bag. Up front the hops are crisp and sharp, and it’s refreshing going down with sharp carbonation. The finish is not as stellar, dry and metallic, with a mild cotton mouth feeling. Could be refreshing on a hot summer day, save for the strange finish.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a dark golden amber with an lasting off white head, some moderate lacing. Aroma and Taste of caramel malt, some fruity notes and light floral hops. A medium body with moderate carbonation on the palate. Finishes with caramel malt, yeasty, light floral hops with a bit of a nutty ending. Overall an good session brew for late summer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
From a twist off bottle. Aroma of dull hops and volatile metal. Slightly darker than a pale lager. Unique bitter hoppy combonation. Soft hops build to a sharp poker. Yes, over the top in flavor for a typical brew from this brewer. Rated at 6% and it tastes like it. Lots of personality on the finish, medium long. Good co2 saves it.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Did not pour into another glass; I don’t care about appearance. Smells sweet, carmel, a more toasted depth to the grain than I would expect from a pale ale (not necessarily a compliment). Taste is moderately hoppy, muddled sweetness. Probably would taste better very very cold like a macro. Light body with a thin, slightly syrupy texture. Doesn’t have as much of a contrast between the body and the slightly hopped taste as I would like... again, muddled, but an excellent attempt to throw most macrobrews off their paces.

Tried this beer on tap at Twin Peaks in Houston, TX. A classic American pale ale with light fruit and floral notes, hops give it a slightly bitter lingering aftertaste. Enjoy cold on a hot summer day.

Sampled at the Artisans Craft Beer Festival 2012. It poured a cloudy dark orange color with a white head. The aroma was mostly citrus with a hint of pine. The taste was lightly bitter with some citrus and pine. A good APA.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours amber with off-white head. Aroma is a little malty with some tartness. Taste is a little bit of sweet caramel malts with a hint of hops. Not a lot of flavor and there is an off-putting metallic aftertaste. Just OK.

12 ounce bottle from State Line. Pours a clear amber color with a large frothy white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of caramel malts with a bit of toastiness, Floral, herbal and slightly peppery notes. The taste is floral, pine, minty hops with faint malts. Thin-medium bodied. Smells great but the rest of the beer is a little underwhelming.
