3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
This beer is not as "richly hopped" as in its description. A fairly regular pale ale. Smooth and refreshing. Moderate alcohol sets it slightly apart.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a beautiful redish amber ... pillowy head (two finger plus) .. settles to an attractive short head with impressive lacing. Not much noticeable about the aroma ... pretty neutral. Clean taste with a hint of fruitiness ... nicely hopped. Clean, crisp finish. Silky smooth on the palette .. very pleasing mouth feel. A good ale that I wouldn’t hesitate to have again.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Caramel malts. Clear dark copper with a nice beige head. Sweet watery caramel and light orange hops. A very mild APA, to the point I think it may be poorly classified. Much too sweet.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: pours a beautiful golden color with a medium white head. Smells of light flowers and citrus, along with a sweet maltiness lead to a flavor that is well balanced to a tad bit sweet. Delicious beer, wish there was a tad bit more bitterness, but just a "hare" more... Haha
