3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. Over a year old, hope to try a fresher sample down the road. Aroma of biscuity malt, some tropical fruit notes, grapefruit, caramel, pine, hops. Flavour is light sweet and moderate to medium bitter. A bit of a tame APA. Looking at other reviews this was malty to begin with.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Light hoppy nose, citrus, pine, fresh and grassy. Deep golden amber color, creamy head, and good lace. Pleasant malty initial, orange, pine, light caramel. Finishes with small citrus and gentle bitterness. Medium body. Very well-balanced stuff. Tasty, without overdoing anything.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pour on tap, clear golden pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice pine, grass, floral hops into a bit of orange and citrus peel, some slight spice into a hint of biscuit, mild on the malt. Taste was a nice mix of orange and grapefruit, lemon peel into some spice, floral hops into some slight biscuit, finishing fairly bitter, more dry. Excellent APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Gold pour, white head. Pretty tame pale. More malt than needed, kinda has a stale hop flavor, biscuity malt, yeast. Its just ok.

Type: 500ml (16.9 oz.) bottle
Glass: Pint glass
From: My sister-in-law Sarah
Consumed: Nov. 27, 2014
Poured a caramel, amber, semi-clear color with two fingers of khaki, rocky head. Streamy bubbles coming up from the bottom of the glass throughout. Good amount of foamy, spotty, spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention. (Sight - 4.00)
Smelled wet Cascade hops, German Munich malts (like Stone’s 17th anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA), floral hops, Citra hops, orange rind, slight Simcoe hops, orange creamscicle, orange wheat and caramel. (Smell - 3.63)
Tasted similar to the nose, maybe slightly better. More of a fruity taste. Wet Cascade hops, bitter German Munich malts, floral hops, Citra hops, orange creamscicle, orange bitter orange rind, grainy wheat grass and light herbal hops. (Taste - 3.50)
Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt finish. (Feel - 3.50)
A pretty good pale ale overall and I was glad to give it a try. (Overall - 3.63)

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft. Kind of an eastern pale ale with lots of malt support for a fairly mild hop presence. Smooth. Adequate. Does just fine.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
50 cl bottle.
Pours clear copper color with a large frothy head. Resinous and hoppy on the nose, orange peel and some mandarin with sweetish malt characteristics. Bitter malts and resinous hops on the flavor, mild caramel, orange, faint grapefruits, finishes to a lingering gooseberry crispness. Bitter and kind of oily palate. An okay APA but nothing special.

Hazy amber beer, small pale cream colour head. Palate is light and dry and crispy. Smooth malts, slightly sweet and creamy. Light citric peel hops and a mild carbonated nip at the finish. Drinkable and fun!
