3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 30, 2014 A benchmark of the style. It manages to be both fully flavoured and perfectly balanced while maintaining a laid-back presentation. A superbly sessionable brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Amber color. Aroma is hoppy, pine, citrus and somewhat sweet. Taste is hoppy and citrusy. Bitter taste at the begining but very enjoyable. A favorite one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours slightly misty copper with off white ringed head. Clean looking beer. Aroma is very dull, some orange marmalade in the distance, coupled with hop-spicyness, lager fruitiness and some generic malt. Reminiscent of a British ’IPA’.
Spicy-bitter hops dominate the flavor, evolving bitterness grasps the palate. Some caramel malt is present but it remains subdued like all qualities in the beer. Perhaps not very fresh but fairly dull & unadventurous - based on this instance.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smallish but long-lasting white head. Mild aroma. Hints of lemon flavors which dissipates into a dry finish. Good session beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 8, 2014 Had experienced pine, two-row malt, American yeast, and hay on the nose and in the mouth. Why is it the day I actually tried this, was the day I had decided to visit California? Could have had this 20 different occasions. Strange. Went well with a bacon, spinach, and feta-topped pizza in town.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bottle. Dry bitter hops with minor pine and slight malt sweetness in the aroma. Taste is aggressive, dry bitterness with some pine and background sweetness. Clean mouthfeel. Okay.

3.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Just a solid APA, a go-to. Caramel malts and bitterness to counter, a well balanced beer
