4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
Much like anything 3F this is a pretty aggressive pale, drinks more like an ipa. Pours a clear amber color nice lasting off white head. Huge pine lead aromas, lemon led citrus. Pine on the forefront, followed by a sweet malt bill with caramel flavors, finished by a bitter palate. Everything works in this pale, nice color, carbonation, palate, flavors and finish.

Bottle from Dale. Almost as good as Zombie Dust. This could be the benchmark for rating APAs. Other than an average pour, this brew’s got it going on, an and then some. Aroma is perfect blend of hops and malt, taste follows with equally excellent blend of sweet caramel malt and bitter hops. Bliss!

12oz bottle from my buddy J. Reddish orange hue, murky clarity with mostly lasting white fizzy head. Virtually no lacing. Crisp orange hop aroma, grapefruit and sweet floral notes. Orange hop taste up front with more of a floral hop finish. Crisp on palate.

3.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Amazing aroma of tropical fruit. One of the best smelling beers I’ve had. Pours a nice copper color with lacy white head. Initial taste is grapefruit/citrus. Goes down very dry and slightly bitter. Dry aftertaste lasts a while. Overall it’s good but expected better from a 100 rated beer.

Many thanks to jsquire as my Secret Santa 2015!. Great smooth floral beer. Moderate bitterness, great floral aroma. Pine, citrus, tropical fruits. The sweetness is moderate, the floralness of the hops intense and long lasting! Great stuff!

Sampled from a bottle from Macy's in Chicago. Pours a clear copper colour with a white head. Aroma of orange peel and syrup. Very full mouthfeel, and a taste of mango, orange marmalade, hay and coriander. Very long, dry finish. A characterful, well-balanced and very tasty American Pale Ale.

Pretty much an IPA. Will rate on how I liked beer not that it’s not really a pale ale. Huge pine hop aroma and citrus. Poured orange and clear. Nice malt balance and bitter almost to harsh arena but pushing envelope in good way. Awesome beer tipping the edge on a pale ale.
