3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a soft and clean straw yellow with one to two fingers of white head, laces well.
Nose is grassy with some soft sweet malt notes. A touch grainy.
Grassy/grainy flavor with a prominent citrus rind bitterness. Light bodied and dry on the finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
The New York Times called this one of the best new pale ales in the country. Whatever! This pours a very pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is floral hops, grainy malt, and some yeasty tones. The flavour is weak, almost watery. I’ve tried this on both draught and bottle with the same result.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Side Door Pub in Chalfont, PA. Far more tolerable than the Brawler, but the flavor just doesn't hold long enough to make this a good beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at Philly Airport Marriott. Well, it could be worse. Bright golden pour, well carbonated. Mild fruits, muted hops, and some grain in the nose. Initially bright carbonation but tapers off quickly, urging you to chug. Dry and clean taste, with a lemony thing, some anonymous hops, but a disconcertingly bland impression overall.

Ok pale ale. Sweet fresh hops,not incredibly complex but pretty simple and enjoyable. Sweet citrus flavor lingers, not much bitterness. Not exciting but average without any big errors.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Light amber pour from 12oz bottle. 1/2 inch foam, white, with persistent thin lacing. I have to admit, this is the fourth of these I’ve had, and it gets better each time I’ve had it - from being a non-repeater to, "sure, I’ll have one." Bitter hop lingers in the mouth for minutes after, and the palate is reasonably weak, but it is crisp and refreshing. Citrus hop nose.
