3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Ei8ht Ball as part of a sampler. Pours a cloudy pale gold with a small white head. Notes of straw, lemon citrus, grass, pale and crackery malts, herbs, spice, and tea with a little sweetener. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a sweet, dry mouthfeel. Nothing special, but not bad. The artificial sweetener note holds it back; still, this seems a little underrated overall.

Bottle. Pours a hazy yellow with a thin white head. Grapefruit aroma. The hop flavor comes through with some grapefruit. Pretty light and mellow. Easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a thick, sudsy 3+" off white head which slowly falls leaving some moderate lacing. Plenty of streaming carbonation. Color is a cloudy golden-orange with some sediment in suspension.
Aroma: pungent citrus punch you in the nose along with yeasty bread dough in the background.
Mouthfeel: light to medium bodied, somewhat oily and sticky with a dry, slightly astringent finish.
Flavor: nice blend of citrus and earthy hops, some caramel and white bread flavors, lingering hop bitterness in the finish.
Overall: well done and one of the better beers I have had in this style.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cloudy banana yellow. Looks gorgeous. Thick swatch of icy white head/lace.
Aroma is hops that have, admittedly softened up a bit. (Best by date is January ’14, drank in August ’14.) Has that flowery, somewhat chlorine aroma. Perfectly pleasant.
The flavor has pillowy malts, pollen-y hops.
The feel is soft and creamy. It’s one of the better organic beers I’ve had, I have to say.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can from Tipples. Best before 9/9/14, poured 7/31/14. Pours clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of nice floral hops, some lemon peel, a bit of soapy hop notes, and mild malt in the background. Flavor is nice bitterness up front, some grassy hops, hay, hint of citrus peel, light bready sweetness, and a slightly dirty flavor on the finish. This one is light and crisp with plus carbonation. The malts are waaaaay in the background. Other than the slightly weird finish on this--and it’s not all that prominent--this was very nice. Maybe a bit more malt sweetness would be nice, but the. It wouldn’t be Extra pale I guess. I don’t get the low ratings here. Good beer that I could drink all day.

Pale golden, yellow, small white head. Orange citrus, fresh hay. Light bitterness initially, countered by mid sweetness that compromises the majority of the taste. Light body, some acidity-driven effervescence. Mild carbonation. Pleasant.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
From Can. Nice fresh aroma of citrusy hops, with mild notes of pine. Hazy light orange amber color, solid tan head. First taste is citrusy hops mixed with some sweet malt/ bread tones. Malt flavor is on the mild side. Finishes with mild hop bitterness. Light mouth feel. O.k. but nothing special.
