4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Wonderful pale ale, bordering on an IPA with hop bitterness and especially aroma...a showcase of American hops! Light golden color with a thick white head that had staying power. The yeast is light and fluffy when poured (chico?), so be careful if you don’t have a trained gut. The carbonation is a little low in my opinion. Great beer!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Gold with foamy head. Citrus hops on the nose. Taste - strong citrusy hops on top of a caramel, cereal malt base and some floral notes. Crisp aftertaste, fairly creamy texture. A solid pale ale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
The pour is a pale golden color with a finger or two of white head. Initially an enjoyable hoppy aroma: good citrus and pine notes, maybe even some weed and grass. The subsequent sniffs give a very off, vegetal and herbal aroma. The malt is very pronounced on the palate with the hop flavors being mostly of grass and only a minimal citrus note. Quite bitter for a pale ale, unpleasantly so.
