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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can: clear gold with a quickly fizzling out white head. Nice grassy, peppery hops with flavors off tanginess. Not super hoppy. The finish has a weird zing to it, almost a little hairspray. Not bad but was expecting more.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to JoePeesie! Clear amber pour with moderate eggshell head. Aroma is full of pine and earthy hops backed by plenty of caramel malt and bread. Flavor is hop dominant of spruce, orange peel, and dirt backed by caramel malt. Some lemon in the finish with moderate rush of hops. Really good!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass.
4.0 A: Clear yellow light orange color. Two and a half fingers of frothy, but somewhat dense white head. Good retention and tons of lacing.
3.5 S: Overall pretty clean with neutral malt aroma. Hops are mainly floral in nature with some herbalness in the background. They arenít that strong, but very nice smelling.
4.0 T: Soft bitterness. Again, really clean with neutral malt. Slightly piney and grapefruit hops.
4.0 M: Heavier light to lighter medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Very smooth and slight creaminess.
3.5 D: Not a bad brew and no problems. However, itís a bit too straightforward and perhaps a touch boring. Donít get me wrong, I really appreciate the craftsmanship here, but it just isnít that exciting.
Serving type: can

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.

Can. Pours bright orange with a small white head. Aroma is citric and clean, nice floral character, bright and hoppy, a touch grassy. Flavor is much the same, excellent bright citric character, not too over the top in bitterness, refreshing light and a touch spicy. Finishes grassy and clean. medium body and a sharp carbonation. Nice beer
