3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Yellow Springs / OH --- Clear light amber with a white head cover, blobs and dots of lace. Taste is English malts that grow well through the palate, adding biscuit and honey before a solid floral hoppy finish brings things right back into balance. A really solid Pale Ale that shows its English roots very well. Recommended.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
It pours a small, white head over a hazy, golden body. The aroma is citrusy, lemon peel mostly, with pine cones, resins and some pale malts. There’s a little sweetness in the flavor, balanced well by the bitterness, with additional flavors of citrus peel, pine cones and resins. Medium to full body and a nice carbonation level. Semi-dry, with a lasting citrusy finish. Sort of feels a bit old this one, wonder if it is or if it just could use a tad more hops. Anyway, it drinks easy and it’s quite enjoyable. 150227

Spritzig hopfiger Beginn, geringe Süße. Grasig hopfig bleibend, weich, im Mittelteil werden die Aromen durchgereicht. Weicher Nachhall mit steigendem Hopfen. Gut! 10/11/11/11//11

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Cincinnati Winter Beer Fest 2015. Clear golden orange color. Off-white head. Loose bits of lace. Great big spicy citrus hop. Great big bready malt, biscuit. Medium-plus body. Smooth, kind of soft, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet taste. Decent zest. More dry finish. Great citra IPA. More assertive and biting than ZD, if you want to make that comparison, but great in it’s own way.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft in a sampler at the brewery. Pours a clear gold color with a white head that laves some lace. Notes of citrus fruits, hop oils, pine resin, pale and lightly sweet malts, straw, grass, and florals. Not much of a tropical fruit presence here. Light-bodied, with a bitter mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Good APA.
