3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the brewpud during the Farm Hands release. Poured a pale yellow body with a foamy white head, easily the least impressive part of this beer was the apearance. Aroma starts to step it up with notes of lemon, cirus rinds, bread, grassy hops and a slight touch of white pepper. The body was damn super, so delicate overall with a lighter mouthfeel and soft carbonation that made you want to drink this all day long. Flavor of grains, toast, ligth drier lemon rind and yeast. Great beer that I could drink all day.

32oz growler in a tulip. Pours cloudy golden with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of fruity and citrusy hops, some light pale malts, and good doughy yeast. Flavor the same with lots of fruits and citrus. Average texture. A good pale ale.

On tap at the brewpub. Nice that they keep the two stand-bys on deck at all times, and this was a well realized and quite dry APA. Light gold pour, with moderate cloudiness and an impressive head. Nose was piney, citric at times, with hints of cracked pepper and pungent flowers. Lively mouthfeel, very sessionable and refreshing. Flavors are slightly brighter and more floral than the nose suggests, but there’s still plenty of dry and peppery flavors in the finish especially. Nuanced session brew, well done.

Growler shared by GT2 at rbwg. Another awesome ipa from
Gene. No surprise there. Lot of lighter citrus, soft lemon, orange creamsicle, zesty finish. Want a keg of this for my refrigerator at home.

Draft. Hazy golden pour with white head. Herbal and piney hop aromas. Flavor is pine and herbal tones with light sweetness, reminds me of something but I can’t put my finger on it.

On tap at Tired Hands. Beautiful aroma on this one. Apricot, grapefruit - juicy and delicious. Sweet and succulent. Cloudy pale golden with foamy lacing white head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Starts with big juicy hops. Fruity and spicy with clean finish. Right level of sweetness, bitterness, and carbonation. This is a phenomenal APA. Delicious.

One liter growler thanks to Reggie Dunlap, thanks Kerry! Hazy yellow with fleeting white head. Pleasing nose of lemon, grapefruit and pine notes. Flavor is an extension of the nose with the addition of nice grain, bread type pale malts and dry herbal tones in the finish. Fresh cut grass and the herbal flavor lingers slightly after the sip. Bitterness lingers for a decent amount of time after the sip. I see why the brew master has rebrewed this APA. Highly drinkable and You can knock back multiple glass real easy. I killed the one liter growler with ease.
Personal note: this was my number 100 rate of American Pale Ales and also my 100th rated beer from the state of Pennsylvania.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, garlicky hops, tropical fruits, grass, caramel malt. Flavor of light garlicky hops, grassy hops, earthy fruits, a touch of light citrus fruits. Very hoppy, very flavorful, the best pale ale I’ve ever had...(really it’s an IPA)
