3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle bought from Fred Meyer store in S.Salem.
Pours a slightly hazy golden with a good sized frothy/bubbly white head.
Nice enough aroma, of caramel maltiness and a good floral/slighly spicy hops.
Very well balanced taste the hops and malts ,meld beautifully with the hops only coming out at the end.
Good mouth-feel! smooth,well carbonated and with a really nice hop after taste that invites more drinking.
Overall a very nice APA.

750 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark copper color with a medium white head. A light bready and toffee nose. Light flavors of berries, caramel, toffee, some tea. Actually quite tea-like. OK. Very light.

This beer is produced in Southern Oregon so I have it on tap frequently. Pretty strong ale taste for a pale but quite good. Highly recommend.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22. Pours a murky burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy, though short-lived, whitish head. Spotty lace. Mild caramel and grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Toast, caramel, grapefruit mid-palate...this is fairly standard stuff for an APA. We’ve had this beer before, but it’s done with no obvious flaws. Appealing oiliness to the finish, nice crisp grapefruity wash on the end.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bomber purchased at Belmont Station in Portland, OR pours a pale amber color with a finger of white head that leaves some decent lacing. Aroma is caramel and cereal grains with some citrus and floral notes. Taste is light citric hop bitterness over a solid malty sweet backbone. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. A nicely done American classic pale ale that is quite tasty.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from PC Market of Choice in Ashland. Pours light copper with a creamy/bubbly white head. Smells a bit of light pitted fruit. Approaching med body. Flavor seems to have significant diacetyl. But there’s various fruit and mildly roasted malt to sort of cover for that. Barring the one problem it’s pretty refreshing. Rerate: With time the diacetyl thing sort of diminished. So I’m adding a point.
