3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour is a hazy amber with a large white head. Aroma is a decent pine hop with some caramel malt. Flavor is more of a dry malt with a decent pine and fruity hop. The caramel malt in there but not in a chewy kind of way, it’s just there to give this some body and the beer is quite thick by today’s APA standards. They were going for the old school pale ale’s from craft beers infancy with this one. It would have been ground breaking back in 1994 and it’s still good today.

A solid, if unspectacular pale ale. Nice to look at, copper with creamy head, and nice on the nose, although nothing really stood out. Great taste and mouthfeel, but reminiscent of late-90's pale ales - I would have been happy to get this at a restaurant with limited options, but was underwhelmed by it in a taproom with 20 other options. Regret is an ugly mistress.

Dark copper. Thin lacing. Grapefruit. Big body. If I were still on a hop kick I’d be in heaven.

Poursa dark hazy orange with an off white head. Aroma is slightly citrus. Medium mouth feel with aggressive carbonation. Taste is bitter on the tongue at first but ends smooth with a bit of citrus and hoppy bitterness that just disappears. Pretty good pale ale.

Hazy orange pour with a white head. The aroma is mostly citrus with some mild grass. It has a medium body with smooth texture and lively carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with an easy finish.
