3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz can, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during my stay for GTMW. Best by 8/16/14. Labeled 5.2%. Golden orange color, mostly clear. Fine particles suspended in the body. Thin finger of white head, good retention. Leaves good, thicker rows of lace. Looks pretty good. Medium body. Good full mouthfeel. Smooth, lightly soft kind of crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly dry finish. Good peppery hop, mildly piney, some grassy herbal. Bready malt, nice lack of caramel taste.. Light spiciness. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Just a light roughness to the taste that holds back drinkability, but taste is nice overall. A solid, enjoyable pale ale to sip take swigs at. Pretty solid now... Would be cool to try this fresh

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice solid pale ale. Nothing special in any aspect but has a decent malty aroma and bitter flavor. A little too light in aroma, flavor and body but overall a pretty good beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought mistakenly chasing SD tick. Pours hazy orange. Light nose of citrus and malt. Tastes of orange peel, floral, resin, hard candy, and caramel. Watery palate with drying finish. Not worth the subway ride it took to get.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance was mostly clear golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies within twenty seconds, some light clingy spotty foamy lacing graces the sides of the pint glass.
The smell has a light amount of citrus/orange coming forth in the hops, and another light amount of pine coming through, ever so slight amount of malts.
The taste is mainly bittersweet and smooth, no aftertaste, dry finish.
On the palate, its light, sessionable, and has a slightly sharp carbonation but still good for the style and leads to a good smooth feel coming all around.
Overall, I would say this is pretty good for the style and very good to me, I would definitely have this again.

Drunk from can. Smell of citrus, hops, flowers. Aroma of hops, orange peel, a faint of fruit. Mildly bitter, mildly sweet. Carbon is soft but plentiful. Doesn’t challenge inany way but is nicely balanced.

4.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
Appearance: pours a 1" sudsy white head which recedes slowly with significant lacing. Color is a mostly clear golden-orange with plenty of carbonation present.
Aroma: pleasant combination of floral and pine hop aromas with a sweet caramel bready malt.
Mouthfeel: fairly light bodied with a slightly sticky mouthfeel. Finish is dry.
Flavor: delicious combination of well balanced hops and malt. There is some floral, pine, and citrus from the hops. This is met with a sweet maltiness as well as some cracker flavor.
It is easy to see why this ale is a multi-year medal winner at the GABF.
