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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours light golden. Medium lacing, decent head. Smells lightly floral. Roasted malts and spruce hops with hints of herbs. Body is a bit light and finishes dry and fast. Was ok but I wouldnít search for it again.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a light orange amber with a slight haze and some bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very scant head of white foam that fell quickly to a thin film and ring. Some soapy wet lace. Nose is very light. Gentle citrus and noble hops. Floral and herbal. Some cracker and biscuit on the nose. Soft hint of melon. Drinks really well. Itís an earthy cracker malt that starts you off and travels the palate quickly. The citrus, not tart and not really sweet either, make the drink mouthwatering and thirst quenching. It drinks quickly and very light with a watery mouthfeel and some spritzy carbonation. Settles in back with a slight bitter and herbal.
This was a nice very low abv pale ale that gives the all day ipa a run for itís money. This one is the winner with certified organic ingredients and a light refreshing taste that doesnít taste watered down. The noble hop character is not loud with intense fruit flavors but it is strong in itís own way and earthy. If itís a touch off balance it towards the malty side and has plenty of cracker on the back palate. Drinks very easily and great for a hot day.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A softly hazed, sunny golden body supports a short frothy-tight white head creating tiny dots and lines of lace all around with a solid ring
Bright, juicy citrus-tropical-melon with balancing earthy notes over subtle sweet biscuit malt on a smooth, medium-light body offering slightly sharp carbonation and bitters leading to a dry, refreshing residual

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.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Medium aroma of hops and grapefruit. Same to the taste. This is a decent pale ale, nothing too special about it. I like how the bitterness in the end is subdued as well as most of the flavor. This is a decent ístarterí pale ale for people wanting to try them but not wanting something too strong. Donít know where the "Extra" in the name comes from, cause itís about as plain as it gets. Not a bad thing, but it is what it is! I kinda feel this way about all the Four+ beers Iíve had outside of Monkshine - a bit too bland/weak, but always enjoyable. This is nearly as enjoyable as their Punkín beer, so thatís saying something (though Iíd take one of those every single time over this). 4% alcohol.
