3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Brew #3 from the tacklebox. IPA for last. [A] Somewhat stale, kind of lake water caramel primarily. Citrusy hops present. Pale malts are doughy, and compliment the caramel. Astringent graininess. [A] Gold. [F] Orangey citrus. Big, malty caramel backbone. Slightly English-y. Not as big a hop bite on end as most APAs Iíve enjoyed. Caramel finsh. [P] Another nicely drinkable brew. Wonderful mouth. Just not as hopped up as Iíd prefer. [O] From the tacklebox, Iím pretty disappointed to say the fruit beer has been my fave so far. The SchíWheat and this were average. Something I would grab over a Sam Adams if nothing else were available. On the other hand, Iím sure this would go great with some chronic.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle shared by my brother-in-law. Smells like grain, kind of like a cheap mass-produced lager. The taste is better than the aroma, super-bitter pine and citrus rind hops with not enough malt to balance it. Super-dry palate. Not a bad APA, but not exactly a good one. I am definitely glad I only had one of these.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a nice and easy drinking APA. It is slightly hazed orange w/ a thin head of fine white bubbles. The hop character is surprisingly floral given the varieties used, very lavender-like. This is try, crisp and bitter. Itís a medium bodied brew w/ moderate carbonation. Aside from the floral accent, this doesnít really hold many surprised--not that thatís a bad thing. I could down a sixer of this and thereís plenty of hops and thatís pretty much 100% of what I want from this style.

From tap. Nice frothy white head, copper, color. Yeast, caramel, hints of pine. Light body caramel, bread sweet, slightly dry. Uninspiring.

UPDATED: APR 7, 2015 Light copper color. Mild spicy hop aroma. Taste dominated by hops, smoothly bitter that leaves dry aftertaste. Medium body and light carbonation. Overall solid pale ale, real bitter.
