4.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Holy flowers batman! I can’t say that I’ve ever tasted a beer quite this floral. The flavor is sweet, floral and hoppy, but not in a bitter way, not in an overpowering way, an absolutely amazingly delicious way. Flavor is a 10 (there is also some citrus), I give it a 10, I still got wood (Varsity Blues reference a decade later is fine).

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
On tap at Pizza Daddy. Very pleasant surprise. If I lived here in PA would be a great session beer. Hoppier than many pales, a little thin with moments of hoppy edge at first. Light in body for a pale ale. almost no head.

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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone pint glass
From: Holiday Wine Cellar
Price: $19.99 for the 6-pack
Misc.: Box said enjoy by March 10, 2013; Also a long and uninformative spiel about water on the bottle and not as much (really nothing) about the beer.
Poured a honey golden, pale, clear color with two fingers of snowy, frothy white head. Healthy amount of thick, foamy white lacing on the sides. Good thick retention on the top as well that lasted throughout the pour.
Smelled a sharp whiff of hops up front, somewhere between resin and citrus (grapefruit). The bitterness comes through unambiguously. Also lemon grass, hay and honey.
Tasted the hops first like the smell. Got that mix of resin and grapefruit. Also some lemon in there. Cereal and light bread.
Light body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish.
Just a really good pale ale. Will savor my other two in the Victory variety pack.

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.
