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.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from a trade. Nose is full of mushy fruit, almost banana, light cherry, moderately tropical and very inviting. Pour is a cloudy pale yellow with a small white head that makes a thin film on top. Taste is initially bitter with some crackery malt flavors. Some orange and citrus starts to come through in the flavor as it warms. overall a very nice and crushable beer.

Growler at home with Aaron. Pour is golden yellow with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, weedy, grapefruity, light citrus, biscuity, straw, a touch of earth, and dough in the aroma. Taste is weedy, grassy, pungently juicy, tangy, biscuity, herbs, fruity, and light bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really nice session pale ale and a real treat to try.

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)

Pours a clear bright yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has nice soft stonefruits and light grassy and pine notes. Flavor steps up the pine a bit...some spicy hop notes, soft and faintly bready pils malt backing but solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the finish is piney and dry. Bravo Jean!!
