3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Wegmans. Pours translucent orange with a medium sized head that hangs around a bit. The aroma has more citrus than floral notes. There is some earthiness in there and maybe some light pine. The taste has more of that pinecone, grapefruit, and almost a dryness. There is a nearly bready note to it. Solid but not as good as the Headwaters that preceded.

Golden/copper pour with a thin off white head and thick striped lacing ... aroma is of biscuity and caramel malts with a light hint of citrusy hops .... taste is of biscuity and caramel malts, bitter citrusy hops, light hint of pine and has a decent bitter lingering dry finish ... subtle is right, not the best way to describe your beer, but hey at least they were honest

Pretty average, yet better than most standard pale ales. Didn’t hate it, but nothing special

Pours a clear golden orange with a frothy white head. Aroma is subtle with citrus notes. Taste is balanced up front but the middle to the finish is a bit sour. Neither here nor there.

Fresh aroma of floral, grass, citrus, and hops. Gold with a hint of orange color and nice frothy white head. Nice balance of sweet malt and some spicy hops...Kind of watery on the palate...but finishes with some sweet and a tiny bitter note. Very good APA.

Overall a very easy drinking beer with a nice balance of hops and malt. Hops are light but add a nice note of banana and light citrus. A great beer to enjoy on a daily basis.

Draft to taster at Dutch’s. Looks solid; a transparent orange with off-white lacing. Smells of hops and pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle from Binny’s Lakeview. Pours a crystal clear, deeper golden, amber tinted body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma has some citrusy florals with a light pine note as well as a lightly sweetened, somewhat bready caramel malt backing. Flavor is similar. Lightly sweetened, bready caramel malt backing with a good amount of citrusy florals. Grapefruits grow a bit towards the end as this finishes dry, clean, and somewhat piney with a medium bitterness. Lengthy aftertaste following a crisp, medium-light body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, an easy drinking, well made pale ale. Nothing crazy, but crisp, clean, balanced, and enjoyable.
