2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. The pour was a clear golden orange with a small (less than 1 finger) white fizzy head that fully dissipated in seconds, and pretty much had no lacing at all.
The aroma was super light of a light bread malt, pine and citrus hops and a mild soapy yeast and had hints of citrus (orange and grapefruit) and caramel.
The taste was mild like the aroma, with a slight bitterness and a touch of caramel throughout and had a light citrus peel finish. The flavor was only around for a short time following the swallow, and was crisp and refreshing although it faded rather quickly.
Mouthfeel was light in body with a slightly dry texture and a mild carbonation.
Overall a this was a somewhat light Pale Ale, which did have a decent taste and a nice crispness along with a really good drinkability. This is a great brew for those really hot summer nights…

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle into tulip. Amber w almost no head which is disappointing as the beer looks almost flat. Minimal aroma other than some vague malty sweetness. Taste is half decent balance of hop and malt and quite full flavored but a bit too hoppy for my liking. Notes of pine, grapefruit and lemongrass. Undertones of malt. Strong bitter sharp hop finish. Low carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Translucent golden hue with a meager sized white head akin to a lager. Wonderful malty aroma containing notes of caramel, butterscotch, biscuit, as well as some minor spruce hop. Light bodied and quite smooth. Tastes very much akin to its aroma, with emphasis placed on malt rather than hops. It’s nice drinking a pale ale that isn’t solely focused on hops.
