3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (12oz). Shared with blankboy and biegaman, blankboy’s bottle. Clear, light gold, average white head. Pungent funk-resin sharp hop aroma, slight evergreen, simple light malt. Tastes a bit like a hopped-up pils, a little too sprucey for the light malt background. Light body, quite astringent - just okay, something didn’t click for me with this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12oz bottle from shp555 - Thanks Steven - Pours bright amber with a short white head. Aromas of lots of c-hops upfront but under that I could find some slight caramel. Flavor is lots of citrus. A lot of floral flavor upfront with some tangerine, and a little caramel in the middle before a pretty fair bitter finish. Light, crisp and very clean on the palate. Refreshing and a beer i could drink easily during the warm months were it readily available.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma of malt, hops and grapefruit. Almost smells like a german lager. Taste is strange, and similar to the smells. Lingering bitter finish. It tastes like a mixture between a german lager and an american pale ale.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
I have had this many times, and can’t belive I have not rated this. Clear amber body, foamy and creamy off white head. Hop nose that is not over whelming. Nice crisp hop taste, dry bitter finish. Nice brew here.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Very nice! The warm, cloudy amber color proclaims it as a beer worth your time. Head is thick and creamy. Flavor is somewhat hoppy, without bitterness - not complex, but robust and pleasant. Smooth as fine silk, it is a very drinkable ale that would probably make a good introduction to craft brews for someone who is used to macro-brewed lagers.

This is an excellent beer. Love it ice cold in the summer. I’m normally not a fan of hoppy beer but this one I love.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Nice orange, some-what hazy appearance, the head minimal, its a relatively hoppy Pale but not too bitter. The finish is somewhat sweet and smooth. A very unique but pleasant Pale Ale. Better on tap than out of the bottle.

bottle from Decaturstevo. Clear orange with no head. Mild hop/malt aroma. The taste was a good balance between the hop and malt with smooth mild hop finish. Easy drinkin beer.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer pours orange with a thick light tan head. The aroma is somewhat sweet and quite fragrant with citrusy hops. The flavor is malty sweet and stands up well against the sizable dose of hops. Most of the hops hit you in the form of aroma and flavor - not a whole lot of bitterness. The finish is long and somewhat hoppy. There is some yeast in the finish, too. The mouthfeel is bubbly and kind of thin. Overall, a nice session beer.
