3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Damian Beer and Ale. Aroma mostly hoppy, resiny, zesty citrusy, grapefruit, orange. Biscuity. Hazy amber colour, rather small head. Very nicely balanced in taste. Rather high carbonation lends it a crisp refreshing quality, assertive hops with citrusy resiny flavours is complemented sufficiently by biscuity malty background. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a brown from a bottle. Smells of brown sugar, flavor has none of that, floral hoppiness is up front with a nice malty roundness. Good beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from Harvest Market, Bedford NH. Aroma is bready roasted malts, some yeasty dough and basement. Appearance is hazy amber brown with thin foamy white head with fair retention, nice lacing, nice sparkle. Taste is moderately sweet malt balanced with light bitter and hint of fruit. Palate is medium bodied with slightly slick texture, average carbonation to support the beer and an abrupt, dry finish. Overall, a rich but highly drinkable beer, without huge complexity.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brassy amber with nice head. Smells like iced tea. Again, the hop flavor is of iced tea, which is complemented by an easy malting and a slight tannic bitterness. Very ESB-like.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, best before 9/3/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy deep orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy light khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, light pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of piney/spicy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, apricot, lemon/orange zest, pear, apple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice compelxity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balace and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a damn nice American pale ale. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of citrus/fruity hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
