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.

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.

Draft pour at whole foods. Clear orange with no head. Fruity citrus and candy aroma. Apricot lemon and tropical tastes. A little flat but good flavor. Pretty tasty overall

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear, lighter orange with a half finger, off white head that laces. Aroma is bright. A blend of new and old hops. Citrus, hop spice, grapefruit, and maybe a bit of pine. Taste is balanced. Mild citrus, resin and pine blended with more traditional, spicy and earthy hops. Short finish. Medium body and carbonation. Clean in the mouth with a semi dry finish. Overall a very refreshing brew. A bit more of a traditional taste. A good everyone beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Six-pack from Big Red Liquor. Pours a hazy orange body with an inch of fluffy white head that retains well. Very subtle aroma of citrus and pine. The flavor continues along a mild hop presence, spruce, lightly floral. Medium body and soft-medium carbonation. Just a tad flat, in my opinion. Not bad, but this is a fairly generic pale ale.
