A very safe APA. Slight malty and hops aroma. Medium carbonated palate that was a little watery. Low malt sweetness and small hop aftertaste. Better than a standard bar beer and probably a staple for this brewery, just not very exciting. Easy to drink with a burger.

Fair place ale. Some decent hoppy aroma. Some mild malts. Hazy but not cloudy. Fair carbonation to bring out hops aroma.

"Nothing bad, but nothing really stands out in this brew either. Light citrusy hops and a touch of spice atop an adequately malty body. A so so beer that i likely wouldn’t get again...

Bottle into a fluted glass. Hazy gold pour. Thin white head. Grainy, lightly grassy aroma. Taste is..weird...kind of a banana taste. Easy drinking...but not great tasting. Weird for this style...drinks like a crappy wheat beer.

Taste at FyneFest. A deep golden colour. Quite thin consistency. Not great as far as beers go.

1" off white head at pour. Clear amber appearance. Mild malt and hop aroma. Taste is clean with a mild hoppy balance suitable for a pale ale. Grains of paradise add an almost indecipherable complexity at the finish.

On tap @ Wynkoop. Amber pour with a white head. Nose is sweet apple, toast, and bread. Some hints of citrus, pine, and floral hops. Flavor is sweet dough, toast, and bread. Floral hops, light orange, and some pine. A bit of orange peel on the back end. Fairly sweet with minimal bitterness.
