4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a dark amber with a medium sized head. There is a lot of nice lacing. Aroma is of hops and citrus with some grapefruit. Flavor is very complex for this style. there is a lot of hop bitterness mixed with some sweetness from fruits. The finish is very smooth. My favorite APA.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
From bottle. Pours a dark amber hue with an average white head. Aroma of citrus, malty, and pine aroma. Taste of orange, grapefruit, pine, sweet malts, hint of caramel. Mouthfeel is light with light carbonation. Finish is bitter and dry. Well balanced pale ale, but I typically like the cleaner finish. Lose some of the malt flavor and this could be top 5 IMO.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
From notes... Pours a deep orange color with a thick off white head. Ripe citrus and floral hops dominate both the aroma and taste. Wonderful. Some resin and caramel malt balance round this out well. Medium bodied with a dry crisp finish. Very enjoyable!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours a dark amber color with a big fluffy white head. A strong lacing. A small citrus aroma. A nice hop character upfront. An almost candy like quality. Really drinkable. Leaves a bitterness on the tail. Good stuff.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Batch 06/09/14. Very slightly cloudy dark amber pour. Softly lacing off-white head. Slow moving bubbles. Nose of wood, sappy resin, earth, and maybe even a little whiff of smoke. Old honey, almonds, peach. The hop almost seems secondary to the malt.... it’s very balanced. Toasted bread with burnt sugars. Hops are grass. somewhat pithy, with notes of lemon candies.
I’m not entirely sure if this bottle was mislabeled. It’s a touch oxidized. The beer was good. Not sure what to do with this conundrum.

Pours golden. Smells nice, tastes great. Sadly I wasn’t in optimal condition to give the a good shake down, but it’s a great beer.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of several American Pale Ales that I think are exemplary. Very nice hop bite that melts well with the malt. Could drink this all day.

Really there isn’t anything lacking in this beer. It could have more hop aroma But really? its called a pale ale so amazing. Yet high abv for a pale ale. Malty with an awesome head and appearnace. SPOT ON. Hop is not bitter it is citrus. A great beer. All in all what I want!
