3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Appearance is a light orange and gold color with a solid layer of beige foam. Toasted grains and caramel malt dominate the aroma along with some floral citrus from the hops. The flavor starts out with orange citrus and herbal hops notes leading to a toasted malt base. Also a little bit of barley, honey and grassy bitterness in the finish. The body is fairly smooth with moderate carbonation and mildly creamy texture. Well-done APA.

Bottle thanks to bhensonb. Poured yellow with a white head. Aroma was clean and crisp with melon, citrus, and mango. Flavor was citrus, grain, and a small hop bite on the finish. Body was light-medium with medium carbonation.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle, thanks to Rachel. Pours silty gold... looks like a snowglobe, but without the little plastic snowman at the bottom. Not an entirely encouraging sign, moving on. Head is snow-whtie, medium to thin, lacing is above average. Nose is clean malt, some PNW hops, light citrus. Flavour is ’juicy’ with citrus, very slightly bitter. Tasty enough I suppose, but very forgettable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampler @ Chuck’s. Wow, I’m surprised this has such a high rating. Starts out with a nice hop profile but that quickly deteriorates into a fuzzy marshy mess of malt. The balance was all wrong on this. I even preferred the half-way hef over this. Interesting that the pourer said this was his "go to" beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Pours a clear ruby-orange color . Thin white head that dissipates to a thin ring that leaves decent lacing. Light hoppy aroma of citrus and flowers, with a bit of caramel. Flavor is sweet caramel and slightly bready up front, but quickly gives way to floral and grassy hops. Nice moderately full mouthfeel and a clean finish with some hop bitterness. A little sweeter than many pale ales, but not bad.
