3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can. Pours slightly hazy straw yellow with a medium creamy white head that quickly goes to a thin film that laces the glass some.
The aroma is toasted caramel malts with some grassy hops.
The flavor is toasted caramel malts and a little fruit with a light bitter grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with low carbonation.
Overall, a solid pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear and golden, but head is great and the only reason the appearance got any points; white, firm head, with some lasting and nice lace. Nose is lame but fair, orange citrus hops and light breadiness, maybe pine somewhere? Flavor is dissappointing, faint caramel maltiness and bread, with floral/earthy hoppiness. Bitterness is actually farily low for a pale ale. Finish is not really refreshing and with hops taking over, but not really bitter (weird?). Palate is fair, light bodied, watery, and lively. Not a great APA, but really loses me in the fact that it is not great in flavor and not refreshing.

Copper color with average head. Some what hoppy but apricot nose. Very big hops up front and finish, a little light on the mailt. Almost IPA bitter finish to it.

Thanks to my buddy SpringsLicker up there in Tennessee for this beer!
Pours a copper shade in the body with a meager little white head.
The aroma and flavor presents a mild hint of bready and graininess.. and a light hop characteristic, a hint of lemon.. more on the English side than the American, IMO. The body was medium thin… turned out to be a very casual PA.. Nothing even close to being over the top, it’s just there.

On tap: Toasty malts and C-hops highlight the aroma. Cirsp hoppiness, followed by subtle malts, light sweetness. Not much to say here, pretty standard APA.

12oz can pours a clear orange with a large white head. Aroma is sweet caramel malt, citrus, and slight hops. Taste is malty with a thin texture and finishing with a slight empty bitterness. Smooth and drinkable but forgettable.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 OZ bottle via trade with Indiana_red(thanks Ken!). Pours a clear golden with a sudsy/foamy white head. Lots of tiny bubbles race from the bottom of the glass. Floral aroma with notes of pine, grapefruit and a tad bit of yeast. Light-bodied, starts out caramel sweet, then some lemon, and a grapefruit/orange finish. Not much afteraste other than a bit metallic and a some mild bittersweet and sour grapefruit, but flavorful enough that I want another drink quicker than i can finish typing this. Refreshing summer ale. Main complaint is it is way too carbonated and a bit watery.

Ya know, for someone who doesnt like hops too much this is your beer. Very watery and muted but the flavour of hops is there, clean and crisp but not kick you in the balls harsh.

12oz can into a DFH glass. Aroma and flavor of fresh, cascade hops. Really nice regular-drinker" pale ale, given as an extra in trade with Atom. Thanks bud. Great palate on this brew. Pretty solid beer.
