3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a glowing, hazy orange with a fair off-white head that settles to a thin ring and leaves some soapy spots of lace. Nose involves sourdough, funky earth and spice along with some floral notes. Lightly sweet, quite bitter. Medium bodied, creamy, somewhat oily, with a toasty and drying finish. Pretty decent, perhaps would have enjoyed some more aromatics, but a good solid bitter/pale.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from Lopez, who made a trip to the brewery and was kind enough to think of me (thanks brutha!) Pours a burnt-orangey gold, medium whitish head with nice retention and lacing. Nose is caramelly and candied oranges, biscuity malts, some dried grass, black pepper. Mouth is medium bodied, lightly sweet caramel malts and an easy bitterness on the intro, orange peels, some crackers, touch of soapy bitterness at finish. Nothing mind-blowing but certainly drinkable.

9/8/2014. From bottle. Amber color with a white head. Caramel, hops and malty aromas. Good bitterness, nice malt forward brew, but nothing to really remember.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle - poured hazy amber color with dmall head. Aroma - biscuity malt and cereal grains. Taste - not much going on here. I really like Short’s, but this beer is average at best. Palate is thin and finish is stale and blah. Overall - tastes more like an amber ale. Probably a good beer if you’re new to the craft beer scene but not enough flavor for me......boring..

I think I let this sit too long. Smells skunked and tastes the same. Cloudy orange pour from 12 oz bottle at home. Musty basement taste. I hope I rate this again fresh

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A pretty decent pale ale. Orangish yellow appearance, grapefruit tinge to the flavor but with a decent caramel balance.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap: Opaque, golden-amber with a decent sized, soapy white head. Aroma is very floral & earthy hops, bitterness apparent to the nostrils. Hop oil, orange & pineapple rind, grapefruit pith, just a hint of toasty malt. Bitterness & floral hops on the palate front & center. Citrus peel, orange rind, & bitter grapefruit come alive & lead into a toasted bread malt profile, just a mild hint of sweetness in the finish. Quite floral & bitter for just a pale ale, but a decent brew overall.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on tap at Short’s. It poured a clear, light amber hue with an off white head and streaky lacing. A malty aroma with a sneaky bitter taste.
