3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a deep gold/amber with a light head and lacing. Aroma was of piney and citrusy hops. Taste was similar - piney and citrus (grapefruit) w/ a decent malt background. Mouth was pretty good - nice density. Overall, a decent pale ale.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Kind of lackluster for a pale ale fine overall, spicy hops, nothing that special but passable...fine fresh taste and stuff. Definitely no magic here.

Bottle thanks to the Moncada folks during RBESG 2014 Grand Tasting. It pours clear amber with a small bubbly white head. The nose is soft, fruity, caramel and generic stone fruit. The taste is bitter-sweet, pine, tropical fruits, straw, light pepper and grapefruit with a dry finish. Medium body and fine carbonation. Simple enough APA, but not bad.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle... Pours clear and apricot-colored with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma offers citrus fruits and fuzzy stone fruits, along with a nice caramel undercurrent and a suggestion of resin. Medium-bodied with adequate carbonation. The flavor strikes a perfect balance between caramel, grapefruit and bright, juicy peach. Tongue-numbing, Novocain-like finish.
