3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Floral hops with a nice grapefruit bite up front. A touch of orange peel which adds to the moderate bitterness of the beer. Toasted malts and bread give a decent amount of sweetness. One of my favorite session pales.

Draught at Pour 24 New York New York in Las Vegas. There was lots of hops going on in both the flavour and the aroma with a long lasting hop finish. This one was almost medicinal like in flavour, chewy and full in the mouth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Strong aroma is quite hoppy and piney, with a hint of citrus, more like an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. It pours a typical but still appealing clear amber with a decent off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with a malty undertone and hints of caramel and sour citrus. Texture is smooth and somewhat fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle. You can just about taste the wilderness.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a orange yellow color with a floral aroma. Taste is fruity and light surprisingly light for a pale ale. Mild hoppy aftertaste which makes it drinkable.

1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma is kind of full of hops & floral scents. Appearance is a slightly cloudy burnt orange with basically no head. It does leave some nice lacing. The taste, however, is a different story. There’s some decent hop character up front but it’s followed by flavorless dryness. Essentially no taste after the initial hop front. I’m in no way, shape, or form a fan.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ The Bruey Provisions. Clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of citrus, pine and some toast. Flavor is mildly bitter with a light malt backbone. Medium to light in body with average carbonation. Decent enough pale ale, nothing that really stands out though.

On tap @ Pour 24 in New York New York. Medium golden, lasting white head. Aroma is sweet fruity hops, like tinned fruit cocktail. Pears-in-syrup fruit hops, clean malts, mildly bitter finish. Quite satisfying.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured a very pale yellow color with a huge stable off-white head. Aroma has lots of citrus, grapefruit, and apricot. Taste is nice and fruity with some peach flavors. A tiny bit skunky and watery. Some decent citrus and floral hoppy notes as well. Finish is fruity with peach and apricot. Overall very drinkable, but a tad watery.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ok pale, but ultimately forgettable. Pours straw with a little haze and a foamy, white head. Aroma thick with hops. Taste is a little bitter. Crisp, dry finish. Very fizzy on the palate. This is an enjoyable brew, I can see this paired well with meats, but it really doesn’t stick out.
