3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
just a nice american pale ale. good body and mouthfeel substantial as it is in flavors of pine flower and citrus hops combined with a good sweet and earth like malt that is caramel like in character. nicely bitter and refreshingly so. nice ipa like aroma of hops with just a certain german like spiciness to it. american traditional yet demonstrative. GOOD.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at the Brew Pub. Pour was a nice copper amber. Aroma was nice and hoppy. As was the flavor. Good, bittersweet malt flavor. This is how you make a pale ale. Although more like an IPA. Still, delicious. My face lit up at first taste because some of what I’ve had from WVBC has been mediocre. This is not. This is top shelf. Nice.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Enjoyed on-tap at the Morgantown brewpub. Good C-hop aroma, its 5.8% abv. Good bitterness, some would and used to call this an IPA. Drinkable and satisfying although nothing out of the ordinary.

3rd beer had night before bringing Kara home from WVU. Plenty of hops in the aroma. Starts off semi sweet and hoppy. Ends very hoppy.

Pours a dark copper color. Aroma is a bit bland with some hops. Flavor is a bit fruity with a nice hop punch, almost an IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample at the brewpub. This beer pours a clear amber color with a minimal white head that evaporates pretty quickly. Thin top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Hops and citrus in the nose. Medium-bodied and moderately hoppy with just a bit of bready malt and caramel for balance. The finish is citrus and hops and leaves a lightly bitter aftertaste. A little unbalanced but decent.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
11/1/07 - Sample at brewpub. Light amber color. Solid carmal and raisin/plum malt backbone with cascade/chinook hops. Fruit and floral popping in the mouth. Crisp finish. If not the best by WV, only the Appy ale comes close. Good beer.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2008 Floral hops aroma but not pine. Smells like IPA and looks like IPA. Rather clear. Somewhat like a lighter IPA impact but that is only on the beginning. Starts off fruity then it takes a while to morph into an offensive IPA blast. Perhaps a little lighter than many IPA. Not quite as mediciny as I expected. Lingering bitter finish that hangs for a while.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Another thanks to eagle for stopping on his way through WV for this one. Poured an orange color with small head and almost no lacing. Aroma was very grassy and earthy. Flavor was of dirt some malts and a little lemon/citrus. Not a bad beer at all.
