12oz can: pours a clear deep golden with a clingy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet toasted pale malty nose with fresh resiny citrus hops. Starts with good fullness and a clean malty sweetness well balanced with juicy hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a crisp bittersweet finish. Very well hopped and quite drinkable.

It’s nice to drink local beer and even better when it’s good. Poor is amber with a large head and a good amount of hop and citrus flavors and aromas. Easy drinker at 5.3 % but still a ton of hops great beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Look: Nice rich gold body lively carbonation, white head. Smell: Like a generously hopped pale ale. Citrus zest, faint tropical fruits, floral. Taste: Oranges, passion fruit, some grass, spicy herbal tea, in the background, bready malt, very mild bitterness plays on the palate. Feel: Light body, active carbonation. Overall: This pale ale is a to the point brew. It is not aggressively hoppy but it doesn’t lack hop flavor or aroma. Pretty well balanced but a bit monotone. Thirst quenching is what really sets this beer off. This brew is worthy.

Nice deep yellow color. The hops are not overpowering, and probably just about right. There’s a slight bitterness to it for a pale ale, but still quite crisp and refreshing. The bitterness sticks around a bit on the back of your palate.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Serving: 12 oz. can from State Line Liquors. It pours a slightly hazy amber with a very small white head. Nice herbal nose with touches of pine. Solid bitterness from start to finish on the tongue. There is a little crackery malt, but it’s mostly those herbal and pine notes. Light to medium body with a lengthy bitter finish. Clearly west coast inspired. Not terribly complex, but not to bad.

A little bitter but overall a good pale ale. It would be a strike with steamed crabs hon.

Draft at tugos. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head. The aroma has a mix of floral notes, light pine, some citrus, some grass. The taste has a fresh hop type jump with grass, a nice medium bitterness, and some grapefruit to balance. Impressive.

Tap. Cloudy amber, eggshell cream. Grassy, light lime aroma. Chewy, mellow sparkly mouthfeel. Light mealy base with a earthy, grassy counterbalance. Pleasantly drinkable. Quick salty finish.
