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.

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.
