3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle given to me by the host of the Super Bowl party I attended. Clean malt bill with some wheaty dryness. Solid, clean pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
12 oz bottle. Pours a pale orange with a small white head. Aroma of cheesy older hops, some grainy notes, a bit sweet with caramel and bread, though mostly stale hops giving it a funky note. Flavor is much the same, stale funky hops that give a cheesy character to the grainy and straw notes. Finishing with some bready graininess. Light to medium body and a sharp carbonation. Pretty nasty, stale tasting stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from 16 Tons. Hazy yellow-orange head with about a half inch of white foam. Grainy aroma with some light citrus and herbal hops. Citrus, lemon, floral hops with a grainy backbone make up the flavor. Mediocre brew, but not bad by any means.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle/12oz - Pours a golden amber in color with a small white head that faded quickly. Aroma is not strong, but elements of toffee/caramel, estery fruits, some grassy hops and a slightly unpleasant "starchy" character. Flavor includes some bready yeast, toffee/carmel malts and grassy hops. The "starchiness" persists and greatly detracts from the experience... not good, from a brewer that can do *much* better...

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Airy white head with murky deep yellow body. Aroma is extremely earthy and so is the taste. A bit too earthy, so the flavor seems a bit off to me.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Mild grassy hop aroma, pours a clear light amber, with a thin white head. Biscuity malts, with just a touch of bitterness. Quick fading bitterness for a finish, and thin bodied. For a session beer, itís not bad, just middle of the road.

1.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours a light orange with a white head. I can smell the simcoe from across the room. Pretty decent aroma, although the taste does not even come close to delivering on the promise that the aroma made. Very light, watery, watered down hops. Extremely light mouthfeel finish is bland and tasteless. This is terrible.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The best feature of this beer is its aroma, a great floral hop offering with some hints of pine and citrus. The taste doesnít quite live up to the same level of character but itís a well-balanced and refreshing session beer.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle pours golden-orange with a white head that laces rather nicely. Aroma is peaches and biscuit with some caramel poking through. Flavor is citrus, pine, and caramel, finishing on a bitter earthy spice note. The body is fairly light with a decent amount of carbonation. Definately a sessionable pale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle fro Whole Foods The ale poured a light golden color with a frothy head with lacing. The carbonation was lively and added to the positive appearance. I guess I am not a big organic beer drinker. This Extra Pale Ale missed the mark with me. The ale justs seems watery and thin. This is not a robust ale where the hops reach out and grab you. It just didnít awaken my primal desires.
