2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draft. Clear, pale straw color. No head. Musty aroma. Taste is off, bitter but not right. I love strong hoppy beers... This is not for me.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Mild aroma, with just a couple of hop notes, more of a caramel aroma. Pours a clear amber, with a dusting of head. Nice hop bite in the start with this beer, with a fairly short finish. This isn’t a bad beer, but there’s very little out of the ordinary about it. Solid and enjoyable, but there are better in the style that are available.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle, enjoy by 4/29/12. Pours a clear yellow gold with a smallish rocky white head that retains well and laces the glass some.
The aroma is sweet bready malts and piney hops.
The flavor is sweet, slightly vegetal, malts and a little fruit with a good sized resiny grassy hop finish. The mouthfeel is medium bodied with some prickly carbonation.
Overall, a decent pale ale.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from Bierkompass.de. Amber, clear body, with a medum, creamy, slightly yellow head. Aroma of flowers, citrus, tangerine, some ropical fruits, grass, herbs, some candy. Taste with about the same aromas. Mouthfeel is light, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes medium bitter, slightly dry, with lemon zest, grass, slight pine and some sweet malts. Nice one. A lighter version of their HopDevil, also with lots of grassy notes. Refreshing and easy to drink, but overall nothing special.

Recently I’ve been searching high and low for an awesome pale ale but living in seattle everything is a damn 7% IPA and a quality pale ale has been shunned. Now low abv "session" IPA’s are all the rage but they are usually just bitter hop water. What happened to a normal goddamn pale ale?
Finally! Not surprised that this comes from one of my favorite east coast breweries. Handedly hopped with flowery and earthy hops. Light bodied but a enough malt to perfectly balance it. I’ve been moving away from IPA’s because they have become too syrupy and heavy and then bittered to hell. This beer is well crafted and proves you can get a flavorful hoppy beer without all the alcohol and malt. Please tell me this will be an all-year offering.
