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.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This starts with a strong grapefruit hop aroma, surprisingly strong for a pale ale. Pours a clear light amber, with an ample white head. This beer truly showcases hops, with a big punch of citrus, fading to a mild bitter finish. There’s not much malt noticeable, just a touch of biscuit in the center. This is an outstanding Pale Ale, if you like hops.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16 oz can. Pours clear golden orange with a creamy white head that retains well and leaves some lacing.
The aroma is sweet biscuity malts with some earthy, fruity hops.
The flavor is biscuity malts with some spicy grassy hops and a little fruit. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.
Overall, OK biscuity pale ale with decent hops.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
1 pint can. A slightly hazy amber pour with a thick beige head. A pretty standard APA aroma profile with plenty of citrus, caramel, pine, and spice. Goes down thin and crisp. Semi-sweet upfront in the taste with some caramel and wheaty cereal grains. Spicy. Tangy citrus at the end. Quite drinkable, but way too thin. Forgettable.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Pours a clear, medium copper color with a fluffy white head. Some lacing as the head settles. Nice aroma of malty caramel and fruity citrus hops. Medium mouthfeel. Nice slight sweet start that has a building level of citrus rind bitterness. The dry hopping really shows in both the aroma and taste. Ends with a lingering bitterness. Pretty tasty.

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.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Indy Brewers Fest 2009 - A well crafted brew to be sure. The hops and malt play off each other in both the aroma and flavor. Not bad considering some of the pale ales I’ve had lately.
