3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft to taster at Shoreline. Looks solid; a fairly transparent light caramel gold with eggshell head. Smells mildly bittersweet with soft notes of hops and malt. Tastes like it smells with a pleasantly light mouthfeel. An easy drinker, but could be hoppier, even for an APA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Full draft on tap at the brewpub to finish up (Michigan City, IN). Pours a rich well hazed golden hue, flashes of glow and touches of amber. A bit whitish head atop cakes and sticks around, laces ok overall. Nice. Aromas are gentle citrusy lemon, touches of grass, florals. Gentle crisp pale malts, bread. Mellow dry elements, touches of fruit. Initial is lighter end of medium bodied offering gentle fruit, touches of grapefruit, melon ball, lemons. Florals, grass, more melon. Touches of bready malts, cereal grains. A vibrant fruity front as the middle is citrusy, mellow dry pale malts and bread. Backend offers tart and tangy grapefruit juice, florals, dry hops. Gentle grass, lingering citrus and mellow melon. It’s got a bit more girth than Leaper, seems pretty well integrated.. A touch of sweetness more than the other. Lemons and dryness, gentle sweet fruit and pale malts linger on. A solid Pale. Prefer Leaper or Sum Nug though. Nose is mellow and could use more life, looks great, flavors are solid.
