4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A little too much bitter flavor for me, but it is a very rich citrusy malty beer. You can taste the quality.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nice malty and lightly hoppy aroma from a golden amber body with a foamy off-white head. Strong earthy, pithy, light grapefruit hop bite right from start. Well balanced caramel malt sweetness to tame the bitterness a bit, but the bitter keeps building and biting, but not overly so. Seems a bit like SN Pale Ale with a bit more hops kicked in. Nice pale ale, but probably the most mainstream of the Beer Camp case.

Bottle. Pours clear copper with fizzy off-white head. Aroma is pale and toasted malts, light caramel, light floral notes, and light berries. Flavor is dry malts, medium hop bitterness, light spice, and faint berry sweetness buried in there; dry finish with a little hop bitterness lingering. Medium body and carbonation.

From a bottle. Pours clear reddish copper with a fizzy bubbly beige head. Tastes like herbs, spicy hops, dry lemon, cracker malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like herbs, sweet citrus, and doughy malt.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle @ home. Clear orange/amber pour with a small dense off-white head. Nose is really quite bready and toasty. Hops are grassy with a hint of orange. Taste is predominantly grain with orange peel and an earthy hop character. Really a very nice pale. Very continental in its tendencies, but with some bright lively hop features. Mouthfeel is just a touch heavy for a pale ale. Feels more like an IPA. And I swear there are more than the 45 IBUs advertised. Well-balanced and delicious.
