3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle shared by Anndiesel. A very pleasant Pale Ale, my kind of beer. Medium bodied, clean, balanced. While it has a mild, straw-grapefruit rind hoppiness, it also has a creamy, smooth mouthfeel...leans right back into the malt..some nice citrus in the aftertaste. Solid beer.

Bottle from Firings. Pours a nice clear copper with a little white head. Aroma and flavor are weakish but bitter hops. Nice flavor, one of their better offerings.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Gift 12 oz. bottle from neighbor’s last Minn. trip stash. Poured to a Czech-pils glass with a hazed, orangy gold color, a decent amount of soft white head foam that gradually reduced to a ring & film, and clingy, wavy spray to the lacing. The aroma started with some sweetness, then a little tropical fruit, orange, ruby grapefruit, and a touch of resin on the back. The flavor presented a substantial hop bitterness that was earthy, dry, rind-like, and lingering, medium malt, and lively carbonation, all in a medium body. Dry finishing and a pretty drinkable Pale.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light hop aroma, would like just a dash more citrus on the nose. Light gold/straw color. Taste is also lacking a bit of hop bite , but there is nothing offensive tasting about the beer. Overall this beer is very drinkable , would make a good session pale ale

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Picked up a single 12-oz bottle from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden amber colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head that leaves behind a thin film top and white ring. Aroma of light fruity hops, a hint of caramel malt and a touch of bread dough. Taste is medium bodied, a little extra carbonation with flavors of citrus and light grassy hops, light caramel malt and just a hint of dark pitted fruit. Finish is semi-dry and has a faint spiced hop aftertaste followed by a light caramel and fruit flavor. Overall, it’s a light amber ale with some multi-hop flavor.

Not bad but after you come the big boys you lose some of the details of a great beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz. bottle that I received through a trade. Pours a cloudy gold with a thin off-white head that barley made it to the second sip and left scant lace. The aroma is malt with some notes of orange. The flavor begins with malt and is followed by some mild-moderate hops bitterness that has a bit of orange to it, but is more pith than fruit. Medium bodied. So so.
