3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from BeastieFan2k (aka Peter Parker aka Spiderman aka Webslinger aka That Russian Jew). Not that pale, if you ask me. Certainly not Extra Pale. More like a light auburn, or a dirty gold. Foam is fleeting, sitting only lightly upon the top of the beer, like spit in an ocean. Light does pass through, but minorly so. Through the bottom of the glass this appears as honey, yet leaves no legs with vigorous swirling. MaLtY oUt.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle thanks to ucusty. Pours a golden color with a white head. Very little aroma and has a decent body. Not enough flavor for me though. Decent beer for the style.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
From bottle : Pours a clear carbonated medium gold color, with a finger of white foamy head, with nice lacing. My nose is a tad bit stuffy right now, but i can still smell tons of big citrus hops coming out of this thing. Some malt backbone. Taste is nice, hoppy with a balance of malt. It gets a little thin a watery toward the end, that would be my only complaint. Medium body through the first part, with a sticky palate, and a faint hop aftertaste. Decent APA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap at ATL airport brewpub. Pours copper with moderate tan head, lacing. Aroma is passionfruit, pine, light toffee, overall quite pungent. There is a bit of herbal-type skunkiness – my gf said maybe that’s why it’s 420. Flavor is sticky caramel maltiness, lightly sweet fruitiness, piney resin. Moderate lingering bitterness and pine needle flavor in the finish. Palate is creamy, lightly oily.

This is by far one of the better american pale ales out there. I had two in Georgia and i was impressed. The aftertaste was mute and made it a very session-able beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle: This one pours a fairly clear , amber color. There was some white head and lacing to it. The aroma is quite good. Mainly citrus hops, with a few floral notes tossed in there also. The taste is quite good. Just enough bitterness with a good malt body. Very smooth drinking. A very well balanced Pale Ale, and a fine example of the style.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours hazy copper with a one finger, quickly dissipating, white head. Some sticky lacing. Subdued nose of citrus, and fresh greenery. Not the hop profile I was hoping for. Flavor is a lightly sweet orange-apricot, bready, with a slight touch of hiding bitterness. The flavor is smooth, clean and crisp. The overall palate is good...but would be better if the flavors were more pronounced and the IBU’s were a lot higher.

On-tap at the brewpub in Atlanta. Creamy soapy head on a light grapefruit colour. Hoppy and cramy maltiness, and good lace. Freshness.
