3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle from ucusty, thanks Dave. Pours an orangey amber with a small to average fluffy white head. Aroma doesn’t really have the hop prescence that I was looking for. Mostly a sweet malt thinkg going on here. Palate is on the watery side with average stingy carbonation. Flavor is very similar that has some initial sweetness but is a little on the weak side and finishes only with a tad bit of bitterness. Not really what makes this an "extra" pale ale, "extra" average beer seems more accurate.

The king of Atlanta brews. I’ve enjoyed this beer while living in the Atlanta metro, with its sweet, lightly syrupy notes and muted aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a nice orangy-yellow with a pale head. Citrusy and hoppy aroma with a nice clean pale ale taste. Just a touch of lingering bitterness. Overall, a very nice pale ale from a local brewery.

Pours orange yellow with a little bit of white head. Slight citrus to the odor. It’s got the crisp taste of most pale ales, but with a nice citrus hop aftertaste. One of the better American Pales I’ve had.

At the brewery. Straight up pale ale. Crisp. Clean. Nicely done. While not exciting, not bad at all. Drinkable.

Poured yellow with a fluffy white head. Aroma of citrus. Pretty good hop presence in this one. Light and watery finish. Good session brew.

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.
