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.

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.

355ml bottle pours straw color with a small white head which leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is light malts and some citrusy hops. Taste is light malty sweetness with a mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Decent carbonation and light body. A decent pale ale but nothing really special about it.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Citrusy. Lots of grapefruit in the aroma. Tastes like a below average pale ale until BAM! Detergent. Horrendous finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A somewhat astringent hop aroma. A bit lemon citrusy. This is good, some hops but not real strong or heavy. Decent, but not as good as I expected.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear golden amber, with a huge foamy head, leaves plenty of thin lacing. The aroma is subdued, but it is mostly floral and spicy hops, with some creamy tangerine notes. Light bodied, thin palate, high carbonation. Not much depth of flavor, but nicely hopped, and very clean. The 4% ABV is appreciated. Very sessionable.

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.
