3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Draft at Spencerís Stadium Tavern. Pours golden with white head. This beer is a complete exercise of balance. You get a fruity hop nose with plenty of toasted malt. You get toasted malt flavor with some oraneg-ish flavored hops and a mild bitter finish. Light to medium body with a dry short lived finish. Flawless.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tasted on 2/11/12 from a 16oz can given to me by Matt Leff, big thanks. Pours clear, bright orange with an average white head that slowly recedes to thin lace, leaving some sticky lacing along the inside of the glass. The nose is full of citrus hops, with notes of resin and some toasted bread malt. The flavor is lightly sweet toasted bread malt up front, moving to pleasantly bitter citrus peel hops. The body is fairly light with average carbonation, and a long bitter citrus hops finish.

Tap at Scottys on January 17, 2012. Clear golden pour with nice head and lacing. Aroma was citrus with some spice. Taste seemed to be opposite with more spice and less citrus. Fairly smooth, kinda creamy and thin bodied.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Pours an amber gold with a thin film at the top.
Aroma: Big zesty piney hop blast.
Taste: Bitter, earthy hops, slight spicy sticky malt, finishes dry and piney.
Mouthfeel: Medium bodied, fairly carbonated.
Overall: Reminded me of the hop and malt profile I find in Pacific North West beers. Not my favorite APA, but drinkable.

Can. Pour is gold with a nice white head, good retention/lace. Aroma of grapefruit hops, bread, caramel malt. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/citrus hops, bready malt. Palate is dry, soft, oily, with a nicely bitter finish. Drinks closer to an IPA, nicely dry and bitter.

Refrigerated 1 pint can from JoePeesie poured into a shaker. Pours clear deep golden with big bright fluffy white head. Big bubble fluffy lacing, medium body, medium carbonation, slightly resinous texture, and nice hop aroma. Taste is citrus, some long pine, and slightly bitter finish. Better than expected.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location/Date:Can on July 10th, 2012.
Appearance: Pours an orange copper.
Aroma: Light pine, citrus.
Taste: Medium bitterness, piney, some grapefruit.
Palate:Light body, lingering aftertaste.
Summary: First off, thanks Dave for getting the beer! This beer has a lot of flavor, especially for 5.6%. Something in the taste is just slightly short of greatness to me, and thatís why I give this a very good but not great rating. Maybe itís bordering on IPA land and so I want more.

Sampled on tap at the brewery. An overall decent pale ale. A little lighter on the hops side then the West Coast Pales Iíve grown accustomed to but a nicely balanced one.
