3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Guest bottle at the 2Bros tap house. Rather fruity tasting pale ale. Citrus and herbal hops. This is one of those very hoppy pale ales that would have been considered a IPA back in the early days of the microbrew movement. Serving: Bottle

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pros: Nice pleasant hop character, candied citrus and a bit of resinous bite.
Cons: Super basic typical caramel and crystal malt interplay. Carbonation a bit coarse, body a bit thin.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz from the bottle. Aromas of light citrus rind, light pine, and a touch of toasted grain. The flavor follows the aroma, but is super refreshing! Damn drinkable and right in par. Bring this brew on

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours clear golden amber with a scant head of bone white foam that fell fast to a cap and ring. Left nice lace and constantly refreshed. In the right light has an orange hue.
Nose is out of this world. Citrus, lemon and orange with apple behind that. Light malt sweetness, grains and light bread. Generous spice, sweetly floral and herbal.
Taste follows the nose all the way. Citrus twang greets you first followed by a light sweet malt. Cereal grains carry it to the back with an earthly presence and a healthy helping of spice to tingle on the tongue. Ample carbonation lightens the body. Mouthfeel is sticky, creamy, crisp and light. The apple is sweet and tart like a good apple should be. Lingers whole in the aftertaste with no one characteristic able to be separated from the others. Terrific balance and the aftertaste has a slight mineral quality.
This is one of the best pale ales you will have. It’s refreshing, it’s delicious, it’s well made and you want to have it always in your refrigerator. It’s confident and brisk.
