3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Hazy copper color with a medium head. Grassy aroma. Fairly grainy and grassy flavor. Moderate bitterness. I would never have guessed Galaxy hops, as it shows none of the character of that hop.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
16oz can into Duvel tulip.
A- Golden flax with lacy two finger head, hazier than expected, but for some reason looks really appealing.
S- Weak aroma of dank hops, really have to swirl it to get much aroma.
T- A bit of light malt, some weak citrus and dank hops, overall pretty underwhelming.
M- A bit thicker than expected given the ABV and overall lack of flavor, crisp carbonation.
O- Pretty unimpressive pale ale, the flavor and aroma just arn’t there. Would not buy again.

Tap. Pours clear golden orange with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is tropical fruity esters, biscuit malt, pine, resin, and citrus hops. Flavor is medium hops and heavy bitterness, supporting malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

This has a wonderful taste. The can is so nice and sraws you in. The taste leaves me wanting more. I would drink this again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured from a pint sized can. The hops are muted, maybe due to oxidization. Cardboard hop character. Malty, bready malts. I would like to see a stronger hop profile. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Impressed by this brew. A very good APA (With Australian Hops). Smells great, cloudy appearance, tastes like a better than typical APA. Love it.

I like the name of this beer and the can design, but, Pale Ales don’t rank high on my list. And this particular one wasn’t able to redeem itself with any sort of quirky, unexpected qualities.
