3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft to pint. Looks good; copper with nice carbonation and sticky white lacing. Smells and tastes mildly sweet and hoppy; appropriately balanced for an APA. Average on the palate. Good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks to bittermestupid for this bottle. Pours clear copper with a bubbly creamy white head. Aroma seems floral over pitted fruit over citrus over caramel. Med body. Flavor is a lot of hop over decent roast malt backbone. And then something strange kicks in and makes it seem really hoppy. Not NW hoppy, but hoppy. Finishes dry with a nice little bitter bitterness. Like pure dry bitter. Above average "APA".

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Two 22oz. bottles. Both stink. Got them in Cleveland and drank promptly. No hops on the nose, nothing but caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt with a little bitterness, but no serious hop profile. This is a crappy pale.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a crystal clear copper color with a big fluffy beige head. Nice toasted malts, citrus and resin on the nose. Toasted malts and good citrus bitterness sum up this Pale nicely,

Botlle from bhensonb. Pours amber with a modest beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a musty caramel malt flavor with some serious hop bitterness. A lot of flavor.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Amber color with a little to no head. Reminds me of a cask conditioned beer. Aroma is of clove, hops and malts. Taste is of a biscuity, malty peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Youve got the roasted malts (peanut butter) and the clove and floral hops (jelly) along with the bread (biscuit yeast flavor). Complex pale ale that works. Enjoyable Ohio brew that is somewhat different from the mainstream. Would recommend, especially this time of year.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Really nice dry hopped pale ale. Pours light amber, moderate head. Well balances but very light and refreshing with a crisp piney hop back. Some citrus in the nose, but overall a clean, refreshing, light beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured from a bottle into a goblet. Appearance is a somewhat hazy copper with a white head of foam that diminishes slowly. Aroma is a little piney, with a noticeable burnt toast lingering in the background. Just slightly sweet aroma. Taste is mildly bitter and grassy with a bigger influence from the malt than the aroma would suggest. Quite balanced and drinkable. Pretty good, overall.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a light amber with just a slight head that quickly gives way without much lacing. Typical piney hops aroma chacteristic of the "Four c’s". Nothing special but a good, solid IPA.
