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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
16oz can from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a crystal clear, deeper gold colored body with an inch thick, dense and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves lots of soapy lacing. Aroma is grass and citruses with a grainy pale malt backing. Some soft florals, a bit of an earthy resin, and grapefruit. Flavor is similar. Slightly bready pale malts with a nice grapefruit and grassy citrus. More soft florals, a bit of a resiny pine, and a light earthiness before this finishes dry and slightly resiny with a light-medium, grassy, somewhat citrusy bitterness balanced well with a lightly sweetened bready pale malt. Lengthy aftertaste following a light, but a very smooth body with a soft, medium-light carbonation. Overall, a well done pale ale. Nice pale malt backing with some breadiness and a solid, grassy, citrusy hop backing. Very easy drinking and enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can from the brewery - Pours golden with a filmy off-white head. Nose is grapefruit, apricot, mango, and a touch of pine hops with a sweet, lightly bready malt base. The malt isn’t overly sweet and dries out after an initial fruity blast.Taste is the same, with the hops balancing between grassy and herbal and citrusy. Dry malt base with just a touch of sweetness peeking through on the finish. Thin and well-carbonated--a bit bubbly. Solid stuff--reminds me a bit of New Glarus Moon Man, though with a slightly different hop profile and a bit sweeter.

Pint at Chumley’s then again at Radio Radio while being blown away by the sound of Caspian. What a combination. Anyway, there is not much to really say about this beer if you’ve had dozens of American pale ales. This one is very approachable and textbook with modest grapefruit and citrus with comforting malts. This is very clean and on the lighter side of the style. Fantastic for a session, just don’t expect anything out of the ordinary.

The aroma is a bit light, some citrus and crisp zest. The beer pours golden amber with an awesome creamy white head. The flavoris crisp grapefruit citrus with a bit too much of a dry finish.
