3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thick, persistent head over light copper. Cascade hops meets electrical fire aroma, but in a kinda good way. Flavor is a well balanced typical APA but has a tingly, almost smoky character to it in the background. Power of suggestion? I dunno.

A nice golden appearance, with a thin white head. Mainly hops on the nose, both floral and bitter. Taste was initially sweet and finished with a mix of bitter and floral hops.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear copper color pour with a small foamy head that leaves touches of lace. Aroma of citrus and floral hops, some caramel malt, and yeast dough. Flavor is good, though not overly complex. Pretty decent balance of malt and hops. Ovarall a higly drinkable, refreshing brew. Glad to see it in bottles!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a rich orange gold w/ full creamy froth the quickly rests to a shallow creamy pond. Aromas of big biscuits and bright citrus fruit (puppies breath). Full nectar w/ soft creamy residuals. Flavors are freshly blakened biscuts w/ a fast bitter twitch that supresses the butter. Becomes too bitter too quick. I feel robbed of the full biscut butter. Finish is citrified bitter w/ the same biscuit. This brew has no mid palate leaving a hollow sensation. Overall: a nice English style with a big hollow mid-palate.

Pours golden, small white head; pretty standard for a pale. Aroma is full of floral and citrus hops. Flavor is the same with just a hint of apricot. Very nice palate finishing a bit bitter. Great pale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cloudy copper color with a frothy white head. Slight hops in the aroma, but nothing too dominant. Bitter, dry hops in the taste. Kind of different. Nothing jumped out at me about this beer. It’s OK, but thanks Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing this to me.

Bomber from spark-diggity-dog! Thanks !... Poured into a sam adams lager glass. No head? Light orange in color. Aroma is light hops and malt. Intial taste was a little cinnamon. Minor touch of hops and malt. Light and crisp. Easy to drink, good example of what a pale ale should be. Thanks again E.

Spankin Fresh 22oz bottle. Glad t o see the boys at Sonoran bottling again.
Pours a golden caramel color with a nice white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, pine, malts, hops. Flavor is piney hops, a decent malt backbone, a touch of citrus with a nice bittering finish. Oily slick mouthfeel with decent mid-palate on this one.
