Clear orange body, medium sized white head and soapy lacing. Orange, other citrus, toffee and sweet grainy malts. Too malt forward for my liking. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation and a rounded finish.

On tap. Pours a clear and light amber with a average-sized white head. Aroma is grassy/floral hops and some matly notes. Flavor is much the same - the hops are slightly bitter. Very nice drinking. Tasty. This was probably my favorite of the sampler.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On handpull, @ UBW. Pours a mostly clear amber body with a nice creamy off-white head. Light aroma of leafy hops and a bit of toasty and caramel malts. The flavor is fairly green and leafty bitter hops with a very light malt base, toasty and dry. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with a nice cask conditioned carbonation level. Overall, just your basic APA, decent, but not a stand-out.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft and on cask at the brewpub. Light amber color topped by a fluffy white head. Smells of earthy, grassy hops, faint citrus. Taste is very similar with a touch of caramel. Somewhat on the dry side for a pale ale but that is how I like my hoppy beers. I think this was the best one that I tried during my visit to the Barrel Works.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at brewer. Huge Goldings nose! Hazy amber pour with lots of soapy lace. Pale malts, biscuits and flour notes grace the tongue, with a nicely clean dry-hopped finish. Cleanses the palate decently. Dry citrus notes come in at the back of the pull, still bittered. A bit reminiscent of an American take on the English ESB.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Moderate amber-bronze color with an easy hop aroma of cascade and honey. Mild English Hop (Kent Golding) flavor with a moderate raw hop finish. Decent, English style Pale Ale, albeit one with some PNW hops.
