3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours a clear, light grapefruity color with a nice, white lacing head. Light hoppy aroma, but tough to figure out. Light, dry hopping in the flavor. Slightly watered down, but very crisp and clean. Probably wouldn’t get it again, but not bad.

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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A - Pours a clear golden-yellow color with a finger of frothy white head atop. The head fades down fairly quickly leaving behind some nice lacing.
S - Aroma is a light mix of citrus hop and some lemon zest. There is some sweet biscuit malt in the background as well.
T - Sweet biscuit malts with some citrus hop and light bitterness. Through the middle, some bready malts and some lemon come through. Finish is a mix of biscuit and some lemon zest.
M - Medium-light bodied with moderate lively carbonation. Smooth and very crisp.
D - Very drinkable. The flavors could be a bit stronger, but this is a very sessionable beer.

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, it’s not bad, just middle of the road.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a nice golden color with a small white head. Aroma is malt, touch of hops, grains, water. Flavor is malt, water, biscuit, touch of hop bitterness and a little caramel and spices. Decent for a pale lager.

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 didn’t awaken my primal desires.

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 doesn’t quite live up to the same level of character but it’s a well-balanced and refreshing session beer.

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.
