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.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Plumpjack Noe. Pale ale, just another beer, right? Sometimes you get a good one though. Perfect appearance, clear deep copper with lively bubbles, a lasting off-white head, and great lacing. Great balanced aroma with pine and grapefruit complementing floral notes and caramel. Dry flavor with big hops balancing out the caramel/bready base. Hoppy, fruity, floral flavor. Nice clean but resinous mouthfeel. Really excellent pale ale. Stands out within its style.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. Pours a copperish reddish orange with a small white head. Aroma has some very faint hop notes mostly floral. Flavor is mildly bitter with a bit of oxidation and a bit of diacetyl. Medium bodied, slightly below average carbonation. Finishes kind of butterscotchy and flowery. There’s potential here but they need to figure out the diacetyl/ oxidation problems.
