3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy orange with a big, long-lasting head. Aroma a combination of fresh smelling domestic hops and sweet malt. Flavor is initially sweet, followed by an almost soapy burst of hops, which linger. Kinda rough, actually. Overall, a bold beer, but either somewhat over-rated, or I have a tired bottle. No way this is a better APA than Red Seal.

Attractive hazy copper coloring. Wonderful malt start with a solid hops kick to follow. Finishes dry but not overly bitter. As good an APA as I've had.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
This pours an amber colored beer that has a good head which quickly recedes. Clean aroma of hops with just a whiff of malt behind it. The flavor has an IPA like hoppiness with just a touch of hop astringency. The finish is slightly bitter. Overall this needs just a little more maltiness to smooth out some of the little coarse edges. A bid thanks to Slikwily for sending this trade!

Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.

Pours a light copper with a think offwhite head. Aroma is citrusy and full of hops. Pine, citrus fruits, and a hint of maltiness. This was a great pale ale. probably the best I've had.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle pours a hazy amber with minor dishwater head.   Good carbonation, average lacing.   Large aroma of hops, flora, and sweet candy.   Initial taste is a bit biting, but it quickly mellows and becomes quite smooth.   Bitterness that appears at the back of the mouth vanishes quickly... very interesting.   A bit malty on the finish, with some minor hop notes.   Flavor throughout is very subdued tho.   It definately pale and has a dry finish.   Points for that, but flavor could have been a bit more assertive.   Thanks goes out to Pabobcat for the trade!

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A slightly cloudy brown and orange beer comes out of the bottle. I won't discount for the cloudyness because it is from the yeast added for bottle conditioning. The color is quite striking. It has a wonderfully sweet floral hop aroma. There is a great citrus hop flavor that goes nicely with a cool sweetness that envelops the mouth. There is a nearly perfectly ballanced bitterness. A hint of the floral hop present in the aroma is distinguishable. This is a great beer. I'm so happy that there is good brewer in Indiana.
