Flanagan’s. Bottle pours gold with an eggshell head. Aroma shows biscuit, grass, and light citrus/florals. Flavor is bready with a touch of honey and a hint of apricot. Overall body is moderate and finishes with light to moderate bitterness.

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

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.

Having at the Indiana Brewer’s Cup. This has me worried for my entry as it won beer of the show last year!? What.The.Fuck? Not Upland’s best 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.

On tap. Reddish color with a white head. Hoppy, citrus smell. Taste is smooth, refreshing, pretty good.. Why is this rated so low? I can only imagine it does not translate to bottle well.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 12/20
Clear, bubbly amber-orange with a thick off-white head.
Scent is very light....orange, citrus...
Orange-peel, bitter-sweet flavor....orange malt.
Mild on all accounts..good, yet run-of-the-mill.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This isn’t a bad pale. It pours orange into the glass and has a small ring of a fine-bubbled head. This is a bit on the sweet side but is nicely balanced with firm bitterness so it works pretty well. As it warms, a resinous piny quality emerges in the finish. This is a medium bodied brew with gentle carbonation. It isn’t the most fragrant and vibrant hoppy beer on the planet but its solid.

On tap at Upland. Clear, golden amber. Light aroma--not strong enough to overcome the fragrance from my fish tacos. Light/medium carbonation. Not a bold flavor, and it is fairly tame as a pale ale, with a small bite at the end.

Bottle @ home, shared with LeninCat. Thanks to Adam for sending. Hazy dark orange appearance with a thin off white head. Smells a bit stale / dusty. Tangerine / citrus fruits in the nose. Some potpourri / flowers and cookie as well. Kind of doughy / chewy, lightly toasted malts in the flavor. Mild citrus. Moderate bitterness and sweetness. A bit too old but still nothing too special. LeninC@ ticks this 4/5 but I think he’s just especially thirsty for a boost.
