3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This pale comes close to IPA territory. I had this on cask and was expecting a more mellow palate. What I found was a smooth but carbonated yet dry mouthfeel. The aroma was of piney and floral hops. Light coppery color with a white fizzy head, almost frothy. Crisp flavors of mainly hops with some gainy malts but not much. Easy to drink with chili.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours light orange, very clear and very still. Nice refreshing aroma of hops, grass, and some biscuit notes. Flavor is mostly bitter with a finish even more so. Pretty refreshing, although quite has some dry qualities.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Medium amber with orange hues and a big puffed up white head. Big pure/zesty aromas of fruity citrus and some floral hops with just a hint of caramel. Flavors big on apricot, with an overall fruit/floral hop zest. Light resin with a bitter finish. A solid pale that is mostly like an ipa but the apricot flavor stands out more so than most of the other flavors of hops.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
This pale ale poured a nice golden colour with a medium sized, white, foamy head. Very small amount of lacing. To the nose there are scents of citrus hops, cut grass and pineapple. First sip was very hoppy/bitter with cirtus hops attacking the tastebuds. Finish is thin with citrus and bread flavours lingering.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear, classic golden color with a one-finger, creamy, antique white head. The head dissipates too quickly, or I would’ve scored its appearance a 4. A well, balanced malt/floral hop bouquet is noted. A relatively rich mouthfeel yields to some mild astringency late. There’s something peculiar lying a the flavor’s foundation that disrupts the malt and hop characters. Almost like petroleum jelly. Nearly flavorless, yet has a distinctive flavor. It’s not off putting. Just disrupts what would otherwise be the natural flavors of the ale. It takes on the hop character and bitterness of a session IPA, but with a smidgeon better malt backbone.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
pour a amber orange with small white head with little lacing. Aroma is of toasty malts, bread, grass, pine, and some citrus. Taste is of toasty breaded malts, grass, pine, caramel, and some grapefruit citrus. Has a medium body with a oily mouthfeel and a semi dry, refreshing finish. overall, a nice pale ale that makes a great session ale in the summer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Enjoyed on tap in a shaker glass. The beer pours a burnished copper color, with a low white head. The aroma shows fairly aggressive notes of west coast hops, with the piney, resiny notes of Simcoe seemingly predominating, along with lesser notes of citrus. Underlying malt aromas are evident in the background. The palate is nicely bitter up front, again showing a pleasant resin character that is unfortunately absent from so many examples of the style. Malt moves to the fore in the mid-palate, showing a nice toasted note, and a noticeable, if subtle, toffee note. The finish is clean and nicely hoppy; balancing the beer in a manner that allows it to be drinkable in quantity. Overall, a beautfully styled APA. Very enjoyable.
