2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear yellow with foamy white head. Smells distinctly of hops, light citrus and wet grass. Tastes of grain, light apple, and with hops on the after palate. Very crisp and refreshing, i guess i could call this an entry-level ipa, ya know, for all those bud drinkers out there. Very little lacing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours medium, clear amber, thin head, spotty lacing. Nose is gentle hops and sweet malt. Plate is gently hopped, with the maltiness building in the mouth. A bit oversweet, and none too complex, but enjoyable, you wouldn’t have to break my arm to get me to try this again.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. 5%. Clear amber/copper pour, with a weak white foam, very little retention. Aroma is citrus, hops, and mild sweet malts. Taste is quite bitter, citrusy hops, malt and grains. Finish is smooth. Mouthfeel is alright. I’m on the fence here, it tasted alright and poured and smelled good, but I think I expected too much from it. Still a decent pale ale. 6-2-6-3-10
