3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampler at the Schaumburg location. Hazy brass color. A thin head with a bit of lace. Somewhat hoppy nose mitigated by the soap in the restroom on my hands. A nice, big hoppy burst on the first sip. The hop bill seems aimed more toward bitterness than flavor, then there’s a slight bit of citrus, pine and grass.

Draft. From notes. This beer is pretty weak and watery. Some light hops throughout with a weak malt backbone. Meh.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at C.B. Potts Greenwood Village location. Pour is hazy orangish with a frothy white head and great lacing. Hoppy, spicy, biscuity, bready aroma. Taste is earthy, grassy, somewhat caramelly, bready, and citrusy with a medium bitter finish. Medium mouthfeel with medium carbonation. Not a bad APA.

Decent for a craft pale ale. Very yellowish to gold in color with a distinct smell which I did not enjoy. Would not get again.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 5.5% ABV
Cloudy light amber color, with creamy head. The aroma is very nice, spicy, hoppy (Cascade). It has a fairly good malt flavor, with lean and aromatic hopping, very citrusy, lemony, with light hop resins in the end, leading to a long but balanced final.
Very pleasant and fresh.
