3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber w/ a decent white head that leaves good lacing. The aroma is a subtle balance between malt & hop. The taste is quite bitter throughout but still pretty smooth & finishes rather clean. This is a solid beer but probably not as good as the ratings suggest!

bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Clear medium amber, beige rim head, stripes of lace. Aroma of malt and citrus. Taste is malt that adds citrus hops and carbonation on the swallow, the result being a sense of overwhelming the mouth for a second, dissipating and revealing citrus and malt in a silid finish. An honest brew, true to the style and satisfying.

Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear golden colour. Aroma is of light grapefruit. Taste is mild citrus and a little toastyness. This is exactly what a pale ale should be like.

Looks exquisite when poured. Lovely foamy head which lasts a good while and slides slowly down the glass with lacing. Nothing too distinctive about the nose. The taste is simply very refreshing. Nice bitter balance with a good fruity malt. I’d say apply but mellow, not sweet. It’s got depth around the mulled cider area and the mouthfeel is Devine. No thin watery ness but lovely water treatment warming slightly raspy bitterness. Oh this is good.

This is the plae ale Standard. Crisp, flavorful. Plenty of hops, plenty of malt. Classic example and delicious.

Classic beer. One that always goes down smooth. Darker amber color and well bodied to the fullest. Interesting aroma.

UPDATED: NOV 28, 2014 O grande forte é o aroma é complexo, remetendo a uma mistura interessante de diferentes lúpulos. - semelhante a cerveja "Baltic Alt" da Gievitzer Braumanufaktur (eick bräu) - Alemanha, porem com amargor mais suave.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into signature pint glass, bottled on 9/10/2014. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, bread, light honey, floral, grass, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good balance and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with good strength. Taste of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, bread, light honey, floral, grass, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon zest, orange peel, grapefruit, caramel, bread, light honey, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice balance, robustness, and complexity of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately crisp, and fairly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate dark/bready malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

About an inch head. Faint hop aroma. A little bitter in your mouth. Going down it almost tastes like a lager. Ok beer.

Di color giallo arancio con poca schiuma senza persistenza, al naso esplodono tutti gli odori dei luppoli americani (erbaceo, resinoso, citrico) che si tirovano anche in bocca ottimamente bilanciati dal malto. Corpo un filo esile e carbonazione giusta la rendono di una facilità di beva "disarmante"!!!
