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.

Has some decent pine and citrus scents. Taste is more resin and has a lingering bitter, wish there was more.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity.
Pours just shy of clear with a golden amber color and a creamy white head that never gets too large or distant. Nice grapefruit and apricot aroma mixed with a hint of pine and hints of bready malt somewhere in the mix. Taste is a nice mix of bready biscuity malt with plenty of earthy pine and citrus hop flavor to keep me interested. Medium to light body with a fairly dry finish, moderate level of carbonation and a resinous creamy watery mouthfeel. Nice pale ale with huge amounts of hop aroma. I wouldn’t mind a touch more body here, but I could also see myself cutting the lawn with one of these too.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tallboy from StFun poured into a tulip.
Pours a light, crystal-clear amber with a small, short-lived beige head that recedes to a soapy swirl and leaves spots of lacing.
The aroma is mainly lightly toasted pale malts and some grassy hops with some herbal hints as well. Even some light citrus in the nose. Really solid aroma.
Fairly bitter taste with a metallic character that lingers in the finish and through the aftertaste. There is a light bready malt sweetness in the background. The enticing hop aromas just don’t deliver as well in the taste.
The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with soft carbonation.
This is not an overly impressive pale as the taste doesn’t deliver the complexity and hop profile that the aroma suggests. Too much metallic bitterness with too little flavor.

Can thanks to StFun! Light orange pour, good quarter inch head and sweet creamy oranges a very light hops. Flavor has a light hop profile, a little woody malt and a slightly creamy citrus aftertaste. Very good, could see drinking this around a fall campfire all night long.

Pounder? I barely know her! Can. Pours clear amber with a medium sized white head and decent retention. The aroma is a bit muted but has plenty of floral notes. The taste has a nice hop punch, a nice grpefruit citrus backbone.. and some sweet caramel maltiness on the finish. Very well balanced and solid offering.

Tap at the airport as I prayed I wouldn’t get snowed in. Pours hazy orange withbwhite head. Nose of big bright hops and tropical fruits. Tastes of grapefruit, pine, vanilla, rock candy, tangerines, bananas, and light ginger. Slight sticky but refreshing and nice

UPDATED: AUG 20, 2009 Draft at Spencer’s 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.
