3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2010 Notes of citrus and pine and earth througout. Some light malts and caramel, too. Very well balanced. The hops and the malt play an equal part and compliment each other very well. Not a flavor explosion, just a great, easy drinking, session beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: Draft at Catch 54
It pours a deep gold color with a small, white head. The nose has notes of pine, slight citrus notes, a bit of caramel, and a bit of earthiness. The flavor highlights the use of hops, but not overwhelmingly so. The pine and citrus notes balance well with the caramel and pale malt notes. Light to medium in body with average carbonation and a lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink, this APA is a good every day brew.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at TJ’s: Aroma of generic hops and generic malt. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy dense tan head that diminished and barely lasted throughout. Clear. Lightly sparkling. Ok lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet. Tastes of generic malt and generic hops. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Malt and hop finish. Very boring, generic, uninspired APA.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at the Standard Tap. Pours a lightly hazy amber with golden notes and a smaller bubbly off white head. Aroma of floral and citrus hops, light caramel and a nice grainy maltiness. Flavor of orange, floral hops, caramel malt, lightly sweet hop notes and a touch of hop bitterness. If they made a hop candy it would taste like this. One of the beer Pale ales I’ve had in some time.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at the Craft Ale House. This is the beer that got the night started at the CAH, and it was a great start. This APA really satisified and refreshed. It poured a dark golden color with a white head. The head left ample amounts of lacing around the glass. The nose was crisp with lots of hoppy notes, along with some pine, earth and grass. The body was extremely drinkable, with lots of crisp and spicy hoppy notes. The finish was rather dry and spicy. This was an extremely enjoyable APA.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Craft. Wow, the RSD is high here, and I will resample this one next week. Pour is dark straw toward copper with nose of heavy Simcoey hops, sweaty female asscrack aroma, plus caramel malt, florals, and peppery. Tastes hoppy, on the sweet side, with a light and not very complex palate at all, and very unbalanced. After the nose, the flavor was a letdown, and i wonder why I sensed Simcoe when Cascade is the main hop here. Not bad, just not as good as the aroma would lead you to expect.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Six Puapers. There was a white head on top of a dark gold body. It left very nice lacing rings. The nose is full of piney and citrus hops, with a little bready malt. The taste is well balanced, nice piney and citrus hops with a good bready/biscuty malt background. This is a very drinkable beer.
