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.

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.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Aroma: (7- noteworthy quality) Moderate grapefruit, quite juicy and fresh, light cereal background.
Appearance: (4- high quality) Still gold with sticky white head.
Flavor: (8- very high quality) Grapefruit up front, and grapefruit centric overall; the finish reveals a bit of cereal and pine/grass as well, not overly bitter.
Palate: (4- high quality) Medium body, sticky texture, soft carbonation, somewhat bitter finish.
Overall: Another well crafted Upland beer; shared a pitcher of this at the brewery with friends.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle - pours cloudy and like straw with white head. Nose is lemon peel, floral, and piny resin. Flavor adds grapefruit and a little bread. Quite bitter but short lasting. Goes great with this banana! Exceeded my expectations.

Bottle sample at the Upland tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 7/25/13. Pours clear gold with a thick off-white head. Piney and grassy hop nose with a bit of malt. Flavor starts malty, then turns to grassy and slightly spicy hops before a bitter finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sample at Pint House during a tap takeover. Cloudy dark golden color with a medium foamy white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Short strings of lacing. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of grassy hops, toasted malt and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with a hoppy aftertaste. Decent overall.
