3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Burger Joint in the Ogilve Transportation Center, Chicago. A "mere" pale ale smell, not big on hops at first. A cloudy gold color, and the usual thin, sudsy IPA head. But once in my mouth, the large hop note grabs on and doesn’t let go. Big chunk of citrus and resin. I had not read the description before trying, so I thought it was just an overload of the usual Three C’s. Settles into a coating of pine tar on the palate, then some orange peel. Jealous that this train terminal now clearly has better beer than Union Station. All we can muster is The Snuggery.

Tallboy can as part of an 8-pack from Gomer’s in KCMO. Pours out a clear light golden color. Thin white head. Somewhat funky-earthy aromas. Flavor is nicer though. Spicy and bitter with layers of floral citrus. Very long bitter finish. This could be easily classified as an IPA though.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden color with a small white head. The aroma is citrus on the tart side. The taste is citrus, malt, hops and some floral notes. A good beer.

Like the can. I'm drinking local. Decent pale. Fairly piney heavy and boozy, but had decent honey sweetness to balance. Not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pint can, thanks Russ! Grassy malt aroma with faint notes of tropical fruit and melon hops. Pours pale golden colored with one finger of white head with good retention and very little lacing. Starts with grassy and straw malt flavors. Finishes a bit dry with tropical fruit and melon notes with a slight hop bitterness. Not bad, but not the best apa.

16 oz single can from the Craft Beer Cellar - Fort Collins. Clear golden appearance with a small, fluffy, off-white head and light lacing. Aroma of resinous hops, toasted grain and light grapefruit. Similar flavor, adding hints of fruit, pine and herbs. Medium body with mild bitterness and a light dry, lasting finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pale clear bright copper like a fresh penny, under a rocky white head. The nose is pretty earthy and grassy with a little biscuity undertone. Pale flavor full of biscuity and pale malts, balanced by some earthy bitter grassy hops. The can says Galaxy hops, but it tastes more...German? English? Not very unique. However, quite clean and quaffable and slightly caramalty at the end. Not world changing by any means but it’s just kinda there. A god old fashioned craft American Pale Ale.
