Draft. Pours straw gold with a white head, some retention/lace. Aroma of grassy/citrus hops, cracker/grainy malt. Taste is moderately bitter, grassy/melon hops, light cracker malt sweetness. Palate is lightly dry, soft, slick, bitter finish. Really nice.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Looks alright; light for an APA though. A transparent light gold with ample fluffy white head. Smells solid; bitter hops with a semi-sweet backbone. Tastes like it smells with. An average mouthfeel. Not bad.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared. Poured yellow color with minimal white head that dissipates quickly. The grassy hop aroma. Medium body nice flavor. The grassy hops are predominant but others surface throughout a little pine and light twinges of citrus. Overall a pretty good effort another one you can Irving all day.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a somewhat hazy straw golden with a thick eggshell foamy head. Nose involves lots of pine perfume and light sweet grain notes. Lightly sweet with a fair bitterness. Lighter bodied, soft, oily, creamy, with a long hoppy finish. Really enjoyable session ale with plenty of bitterness and aromatics from the hops. Very drinkable.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle courtesy of Anndiesel. Hazy yellow-tan. Massive, frothy, steady white head. Grassy sweet hop aroma, dry, a hint grainy. Has a real classic feel, but also has that nice citrus edged new school hop edge. It’s pretty awesome to see brewers nailing and perfecting Pale Ales. Clean, fresh medium body. Slight tropical, lemony undercurrents. Really well done, very enjoyable.
