3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice APA, with a good, citric hops character and depth of flavor. It falls short of the best APAs, but would certainly do just fine most of the time.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
From the can. Clear amber with a light, wispy, white head. No lace. Nose is very lithgt citrusy hops, grapefruit, light lemons and very faint caramel malts. Nose seems completely clean and absent of esters and complexity. Flavor is dry and again medium light hop character and little to no malt character. Bitter crisp finish. Seems true to style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A clear, golden body with a rocky, white head. The aroma is fruity with notes of tangerine and mild apricot. It has a light, somewhat thin body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a more neutral finish.

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.

Tall can from trade. Aroma was of grassy and piney hops. Flavor was the same, but the palate was rather thin. I could see one consuming mass quantities of this brew. Pretty good beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From notes. First reviewed 7/7/2011. Poured from a 16 oz. can into a pint glass.
My pour is a transparent golden caramel color beer comes out of the can, creating a full, foamy white head.
Ah, a hoppy pale ale, I see where your head’s at. Tropical fruits and lots of grapefruit step in front of the pale malt in the nose.
The flavor starts with a light biscuity malt sweetness up front, then mango and grapefruit hop flavors, followed by a long, lingering bitterness that lasts a little long and rides well into the aftertaste.
The first thing I notice is that it is kind of grainy, maybe hop residue from the dry hopping. Medium body, above average lively carbonation.
This is fine, but nothing about it really blew me away. Maybe I was not in the right mode for this one. I would try it again to see if my palate changes.

Can, as pictured, courtesy of Howard. Poured a clear gold. Smells of grassy notes and citrus hops. Very drinkable, great example of the style, I think. Simple but well made. Would love to have more of this, but alas...

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2012 In the category of Daisy Cutter with a touch less edge and easier drinking. Pours a nice golden orange with a thin white head that fades fast and leave a trace of lace. Nice citrus and pine hop profile without being over bearing. A good brew to share with no craft fans as a gateway. A bit over priced for what it is.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear amber with a white head that turns into a lasting ring that does leave some lacing. Pretty pine forward in the nose. Taste is bittersweet - sweetly malty with a nice hop bite. Excellent beer.
