3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bought on tap at Savemore Beverage in Clifton Park, NY. Small, off-white head with some lacing. Grapefruit, pine and resin notes. Very nice APA: easy to drink, great summer session beer. Doesn’t give you the old El Kabong over the head and palate that a lot of the IPAs do (not that it’s a bad thing, but sometimes you want something you can just drink and drink and drink), but that’s OK.

nice fresh hop aroma and taste at the first taste. light head. Like a good IPA without the heavy bitterness which is ummm like a good APA. Nice drinkable beer.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Overall poorly balanced. More malty than hoppy. Not a refreshing finish. Could be drier.

Sierra Nevada called: they want their recipe back. Nearly identical in all aspects, from the color to the head, to the mouthfeel. Maybe a touch more intriguing with its hops.

The first time I tried this beer, I was not real excited. It was a very pale and DIFFERENT type of hops flavor. Several months later I was in the mode for something different and bought a whole case. Again, the first one was such a different twist on a hoppy beer, I thought it was so-so. But I have come to LOVE this beer! It has a sharp hops bite that is super crisp and not too much alcohol. It is tremendously more hoppy than Victory Summer Love, yet without the heavy richness of Victory Hop Devil or Yakima Glory. What a fantastically clean, dry and flavorful summertime beer.

Needed a pale to go with some curry I got to go. Bottle. Not a big fan of the hop bombs so I figured I’d give this a go. Nice lace and an unclear gold. Not copper at all. lots of floral and a mellow grapefruit overtone. Hints of almonds or something but as I delved in became more like a cedar. Not to shabby. Would buy again.

Has a very grassy aroma. Pours very nice with a great head. Is an incredible golden color that is very clear. Has a very wheaty flavor for a pale ale but it works nicely. Has a grassy hop flavor that balances well with the wheatiness. Has a medium body and is perfectly carbonated. This is not a typical pale ale but is very refreshing and kind of 1/2 wheat beer.
