3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at brewpub. Pours a clear yellowy golden yellow with an offwhite head, healthy enough. The nose is lightly sweet with hops. Not a ton, floral. Light pale malt. Corn, not a ton of it, but that special corn flake sort of sweetness, unmistakable. The mouthfeel is a bit fuller than I’d expect from the style, with standard draught sort of carbonation. The flavor is in line with the nose, though the corn is perhaps a bit more pronounced. There’s a good deal of sweetness to this. The hops are a bit low in profile for my tastes. This is however really very easy to drink. I’m just sad that the old pale was pushed aside for this pale! That being said, I was very enthused about the new experimental amber, which perhaps fills the void left by the departure of the old pale.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours slightly hazy orange-golden with a thin pale buff head. Malty aroma is not strong, and has a fruity hint. Flavor is more hoppy than malty, close to an IPA, slightly bitter with just a hint of orange. Mouthfeel has average fizz and slightly thin body, while finish is hoppy and woody. Nothing special, but good for a party or chilling on a hot day.

Descent but nothing special. Nice aroma and orangish look. Taste is lacking and it lingers for way to long.

12 ounce bottle. Decent hoppy pale with nice orange pour. Some good aroma that is a bit bigger than taste.

Very solid Pale Ale. Nothing stands out as exceptional though. Smells better than it tastes but it does have almost everything you'd want in a Pale.

I really liked this IPA. Clean and crisp, with aggressive citrus hopping. Lots of length, good flavor, and a rich finish.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz. bottle poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a lightly hazed, orangey gold color, with a fairly persistent, frothy layer of soft white head foam, and wavy lacing that turned web-like as the liquid decreased. The nose was some peach, orange rind, a bit of sweet grain, with sideline notes of foliage & woody stalks, and a bit of plastic. The taste highlighted citrus & pit fruit, with a lingering, citrusy & earthy bitterness, light to medium body, fairly active carbonation, and a bit of dryness to the finish. Nice enough Pale, but didn’t exactly pop for me.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy bronze-gold with a fluffy, rocky eggshell head that settles quickly and leaves some soapy, stringy lace. Nose involves sweet grain, some pine, spicy hops, and peach notes. Fairly sweet, decently bitter. Medium bodied, oily, toasty, finishing toward dry. A decent pale ale, snappy and quenching.
