3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thin and clean tasting, hoppy and bright with an apple juice finish. This is a great example of a lite Pale beer, almost IPA in character but subdued. Clean and light with a bursting flavor.

A very crisp, refreshing beer. Aroma and flavor are both dominated by grassy hops, with a subtle hay, almost Pilsner flavor behind the main grassy taste. Some mild hop bitterness as well. Basically, it tastes the way a freshly mowed lawn smells. I’m a fan.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Decent bubbly head, while the color has a golden yellow color.
Aromas of the fruitiest orange blossom and bright lemon, balanced by biscuits and bready, sweeter malts. The nose anticipates an IPA with a dominant malt base, which will be as important as the hops in the beer.
Begins with bready malts, moderate carbonation and toffeeish hints, which add a subtle sweetness to the beer. Orange and Papaya flavors come up in a gentle, enjoyable way, with just a little bitterness. Sweetness fades on the finish as sticky, bitter resins emerge and linger together with the tropical fruitiness. The palate is light bodied and well balanced between a present maltiness and fruity, mellow hop flavors.

simple, clean, quality. Fresh clean hop flavor profile with a bit of nice lingering sediment on the bottom of your pint. A++++

This beer is really well balanced with a bit of herbal character as well. Finishes nice and crisp, goes down easy. Very good beer

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Beautiful crystal clear gold pour with a fluffy half-inch white head. Positively bursting with citrus and pine hop aroma, with a touch of white grape scent mixed in. Flavor is very hop forward. Dry, grassy bitterness with a crisp pale malt character. Champagne-like dryness to the finish with a light lingering bitterness. Body is light and clean. Fantastic session beer. Really impressive compared to the seemingly endless array of over-malted "pale ales" on the market right now.

12oz bottle. hazy copper in appearance, generous white head. citrus and floral hops dominate the aroma with some hints of sweet malt mixed in. pretty hoppy for a pale ale but balanced out by the sweet malt flavor. nice lacing and good head retention throughout the duration of the glass. solid pale!

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear bronze with a minimal white head. Nose is semi-toasty cereal, I’m thinking cheerios, with an herbally, grassy (somewhat skunky) hop profile. Flavor is also toasty cereal grains, a little sweet, the hops have a bit of a resinous and floral character. I can tell that the water makes a difference. I really think the brew tastes "cleaner" but not "better". It finishes bitter and slightly metallic. Medium-thin mouth feel. Not worth the $11.50 a sixer you have to pay for it here.

This pale ale pours a clear dark copper color. Huge white fluffy head. Lacing everywhere. As soon as I put this up to my nose I was impressed. This is one hopped up pale ale! Full of floral and piney hops with some citrus lingering. Nice presence of caramel malt.
The taste doesn’t quite match the amount of hops that the smell has but it’s still very hoppy for just a regular pale ale. Some IPAs would be jealous. The citrus comes in more here with the piney hops following. The beer finishes with a nice toastiness. Kind of like a biscuit.
Mouthfeel is a little bit on the light side, almost watery but it all fits together nicely and I don’t mind this kind of mouthfeel for a 5.10% beer. Goes down just really nice
