Canít quite be sure how good this was and how much of it was the setting: on tap at the Lake Crescent lodge, sitting on the pier watching sunset. Doesnít matter I guess. A memorable beer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Naked City. Pours a slight hazed peach golden with very little head. Nose is very delicate...peach, light citrus, piney butter, touch of bready caramel. Biscuit breadiness, light piney citrus, butter present...not overly to fault, yet distracting...decomposing peach flesh with ice tea. All of this sounds discouraging, bu this isnít super offensive.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazed medium amber pour, thin white head. Very soft nose that has a herbal, slightly caramelly smell that comes across as sweet tea. Still gives the same impression when drunk, with a bit of lemon rind flavor, floral notes, some resin on the finish. Was a pleasant pairing for burritos, but not quite what Iím usually after in a pale.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Nicely balanced pale. Pours copper in color. Good malty taste and hoppy flavor, perfectly proportioned. For what this beer aims to be, a job well done. Solid B/B+.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Can. Orange copper colored in appearance with a half-inch of beige foam. Mostly earthy hops, citrus and cereal malt in the aroma. The taste is sour grapefruit and orange rind upfront followed by some herbal hops bitterness and toasted biscuit malt. Lots of carbonation in the body along with a tangy, bitter finish. The overall flavor is slightly off-balance and tastes more like an Amber or ESB than an APA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUN 24, 2012 Aroma is quite yeasty with hints of citrus. Body is citrusy as well - lemon, orange peel, grapefruit. Nicely bitter, but balanced enough to be sessionable. Finish is long and full of grapefruit rind. I quite liked this.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange brick like color with beige like frothy head. Light caramel malt aroma. Medium bodied with malt notes of nuts and dark chocolate that do battle with strong hop flavors that take over in the long lasting astringent finish.
