2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, eight centimetre tall soapy tan head - not very pleasant. Aroma of pale malt, light hops, earth, flowers and some yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with a bunch of floral and herbal notes and a lot of cardboardie malt with little else. Aftertaste shows some yeast and a biting floral note that shows decently. Overall, way too much carbonation in this one and the hop flavours were a bit overshadowed by the malt and there wasn’t enough complexity throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 13-July-2013 for US$2.00 sampled at home in Washington on 09-August-2013.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is very similar with a few additions. I get a lot of orange and pine notes as well as some earth and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Small white head over coppery clear body. Looks more like an amber than a pale ale. Aroma of hops and some oxidation. Taste of much the same. Pity, since past the oxidation I could taste a fairly clean beer and I imagine that when fresh, with less oxidation and more hop aroma this is probably quite good.

Aroma is light citrus and malts. The flavor is citrus, light grapefruit, malts, a small hint of hop resin and a tangy/bitter finish. Think I got a partially opened bottle

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
I’m not sure how this beer is rated as well as it is. Pretty mediocre pale ale. Amber in color and hazy with an average head. Aroma is piney but the flavor is stale and overly sweet.
