3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
All Summit dwarf hops, this one, and ringing in at 5.2%...named after assistant brewer Josh.
Coppery/ bronze coloring, solid white head...
Grassy, herbal hoppy nose...
Taste: juicy red fruits, brisk bitterness, with a toasty malt feel. Very English style pale ale, Bass-like, caramel malt controls the character, but there’s still an ever-present hop kick.
Medium bodied, with a hoppy finish. Nice stuff, but not exactly my style.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark Gold Apricot Color with Light Sandy Head. Dry Aggressive Citrusy Hops Aroma. Light to Medium Bodied.. Hazed Hopped Dry Mouthfeel. Sweet Light Malt, Citrus Notes...Smack of Hop and Citrus Notes Throughout..The West Coast Hops Really Make This a Solid Pale Ale and Although Aggressive, Balanced Fairly Well...Sweet Dry Aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Yep, most definitely an American Pale. Full slam of west coast citrus and pine in the nose and in the taste. Great almost cloudy dark amber, wonderful lacing. Great bitterness, great finish.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Finally! After all the weak "bitter" beers I’ve had in the last few weeks, this American Pale ale delivers. Brown color with off-white head. Sweet citrus hop nose with faint bitternes. Intensely bitter body with the faintest grain character and a vaguely citrus hop flavor (almost grapefruit). Very smooth for such a bitter beer.
