4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled in a twelve ounce bottle. Pours a nice golden color with a creamy head. Good aroma with citrus hops and caramel malts, plus orange and a touch of graitfruit. The taste was very pleasant resulting in a good session beer. I would like to try one of the IPAs from this brewery because I imagine it would be very good like this Pale Ale.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle: Light/medium amber w/ a thin, but lingering white head. Slighty grassy hop aroma w/ some grainy malt & very light toasted malt. herbal hop aroma most of all w/ hints of grapefruit. Well balanced w/ some herbal and piney hop flavors; Toasty malt w/ hints of citrus. Very light caramel, almost non existant. Medium fruitiness. Smooth overall, light body, medium carb. Not bad, but a run of the mill APA.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured a copper color with a small, off white head, that left spotty lacing on the glass. Muted, well balanced, citrus hops and malty aroma. Sweet caramel, piney, resiny hops, lightly minted taste. A surprisingly nice pale ale.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 18/20
Beautiful pour…brilliant copper body with a tough white lacy head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy…I can smell it at arms length away. Delicious flavor; piney hop bite, malty background, bitter finish; yum. A bit too light bodied, but otherwise a winner.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a copper color with a little bit of whitish head. Aroma is subdued citrus. Taste is nothing special. The hops are there, but very very subdued to the point that you can barely tatse them. Overall, I have to say I was pretty dissapointed with this one.

3.8 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Deep golden in color with a pale white head. Aroma is citrusy, resiny, and fresh with some toasted, dry malt. Flavor is the same as the aroma (good) with just a touch of sweetness in the finish. Bitterness hits at mid-palate and holds into the long finish. My only criticism is that there is a slightly gummy, proteinaceous malt character in this beer. Otherwise it is perfect objectively.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. From Sampler. Pours with a frothy lasting head. Looks like this will be a good one. Good lacing with a clear amber color. Heavy grapefruit aroma with hints of leather, earth, and musty hops. Some toffee flavor with a medium body and creamy palate. Nice lively carbonation. Good lightly sweet malt with immediate floral hop bite that stays solidly and nicely even as it finishes. I like more citrus and pine in my hops with a pale ale, but this one is still good.
