Tall boy can from sherm1016...thanks. Pours a rich, hazy orange....but doesn’t quite live up to its hype from there....some hops but not really a ’punch’....a pleasant beer for a spring evening....

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This one from a tallboy can, I was responsible and didn’t rate the samples from the brewery. Huge hoppy nose, piny with citrus and especially grapefruit, resin heading toward soapiness. Bright coppery orange body with steady carbonation and a frothy beige head. Light body closer to IPA-level bitterness, really cleanses the palate and leaves a bready residue, though it’s pushing close to that threshhold for resiny astringency. Just bone dry. A good, potentially great summer beer, dry hopping has done wonders and it has that perfect hamburger and hot dog pairing potential.

Can from Stfun. Poured a golden color with medium nice head. Aroma was grassy and citrus. Taste was much more bitter than i was expecting which was a plus in my book. Pretty solid pale ale.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
A pint in a can provided by Sean, drank from a perfect pint glass... The beer pours a light watery copper with orange notes, looks ok but light. The head is off white watery, but good retention and lacing... The aroma is really nice, great fresh citrus notes, a hint of caramel then a perfect amount of hops. Just great... The taste is equally as nice, an easy to drink flavorful pale ale. Would love to get this and crush it 4 can packs of daisy cutter.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2011 Poured from growler a coppery, very clear color with a white head and lots of lacing from an aggressive pour. Aroma of citrus but not real strong. Light body with some bitterness and I can taste the hoppiness, but again, not real strong. Beer is a little thin with some bitterness. Thing is, I kinda like the taste and I think this would be a good beer to drink all day long by the pool, as I did today, minus the pool.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
16 oz. Can - Pours golden orange/yellow with foamy white head. Aroma is spicy/citrusy hops. Taste is slightly malty, a bit bready and ends with spicy/bitter hops. Not spectacular, but decently hoppy and quite drinkable.

Got this can and southern star at Village bottle shop. This beer was thin, not much hops , not much head no lacing, and almost like an american lager. Nothing funky so I don’t think it was infected, just weak.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tallboy can purchased at the brewery. Pours a light amber color with a white head. Aroma is mildly hoppy, grassy, citrus. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is hop bitterness with a touch of sweetness and a clean bitter finish. A nice APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Clear deep golden body. Off-white, frothy head. Aroma of pine, citrus and caramel. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture and lively carbonation. Flavor leans toward the sweet side for an APA, but there is enough hop presence of grapefruit and pine to keep the malts in check and leave a bitter aftertaste. This doesn’t grab your attention, but it gets points for being solid and an easy drinker.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
(16oz can courtesy of iii9ix3). Pours clear copper with giant 2 finger of-white head and lots of carbonation. Aroma of cardboard, citrus, and pine/wood. Taste is malt sweetness with hop bitterness. Its a bit thin, but it makes for a sessionable beer that has some nice flavors. A pretty solid beer.
