3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 tap at brewpub. Hazy gold, thick frothy white head that laces everywhere. Super bright nose, ultra resinous with heavy orange, light sweetness with a few off paper hints. Flavor shows ultra bite, orange candies and earth slowly disappear across mid as beer dies in a dry, doughy end, absolutely no sugar anywhere, though salty orange returns in finish. Breezy and airy, it brings wonder and then disappears, teasing in that delicious, "I want more" way.
