3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

3.6 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.

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