3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Shaker pour at Lockdown. Gold to light amber in color. Not much to say about this, I was hoping for a light clean hoppy beer from Cali. What I got was an uneven, characterless, and muddled beer. Hops weren’t directed, just wayward hoppy flavor. Malt was dusty and getting in the way. Sharp bitterness doesn’t help in the structure of the beer. Meh.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear yellow gold in color... Aroma is fresh boiling wort, grains, fruity malts... Flavor is thin, with off fruity malt flavor, minimal hops on finish... Pretty bad for an XPA

A really nice easy drinking brew. A typical smooth low color beer. The Malta and hops are easy and enjoyable.

12oz bottle pours a clear orange with some frothy, white head. Nose has some sweetness, some citrus, a little grass, some straw. Flavor is lightly sweet, lemon, soap, some grass. Clean finish. Good, sessionable.

Amber Color, Long Lasting Foamy Head, Decent Lacing. Pine Aroma. Slightly Sweet, Citrus, Malt, Pine, Bitter Hop Finish. While the body seems light, it has pleasant buttery Creamy Mouth feel. Lasting Bitter Aftertaste. Love Prohibition Style Themed label. Live and refreshing. Nice. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle on the balcony. Aroma is very fresh, with apricots, cotton candy, and brown sugar in the forefront. Higher than medium bodied, rich malty base with bright floral hops up front. More bright fruits and berries, caramel, malt, the finish is sweet. A few more IBU’s would be welcome, but all in all it is a really nice pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pretty simple pale ale that has a nice light flavor and hop bite to it. It’s not overly aggressive anywhere but sometimes you just want a simple pale ale. Good stuff.

Serving: 12oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a gold color with a small white head. The nose has a mix of citrus and spicy hops. The flavor is zesty with those spicy citrus notes kick past a light malty body. Light to medium body with a medium finish. Easy drinking and you can certainly do worse flavor wise.

Had a sample in a flight at Mohawk Bend. Delicious, refreshing, balanced, hits all the right notes.

Smells of sweet biscuit and malt. Looks good. No retention and pathetic lacing. Tastes doesn't live up to the good smell. Tastes a little like stale hops.
