3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Aroma: Nice mellow hop resin. Little pine and floral
Appearance: dark for a pale, but only a little. Golden in color
Taste:citrus presence with a light bitter finish. On the dry side but not overtly and well within style. Very good
Palate: very nice mouthfeel and presence. Hops add character without over loading it. Perhaps a little heavy for a summer session, but very quaffable.
Overall: there are few beers I buy repeatedly these days as there is just so many new styles and offerings to try. This has become a solid go to for me when I just want a beer I can drink and enjoy. Never disappointed and on sale for less the $8.

Bottle, Beer52. Light golden colour, white foam. Slightly bready malts, quite dry. Medium slightly non-descript hoppy feel. Some bitterness, not strong. Ok, a bit safe and ordinary. berkshirejohn (6771) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 13, 2018
12oz bottle from Beer52.com. A pale amber pour with a thick cream head and lively carbonation; a pleasant crisp floral aroma with a hint of citrus; a smooth malty body with a light floral bitterness; and a biscuity finish. Clean and refreshing. Bullit (4825) - Buffalo, New York, USA - JAN 12, 2018
Can from Wegmans. Light malty, citric, fresh, well executed. Very drinkable. biologynbeer (6) - - JAN 11, 2018 does not count
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2018 Purchased from costco. Bottled 12/07/17. Poured from bottle into pint glass.
Pours golden yellow with relatively thin head but persistent lacing.
Aroma - Lots of dank. Some pine and citrus.
Taste - Light malts, light bitterness that dissipates quickly, lemon citrus and yeast on the back end, bitterness returns for a balanced finished, refreshing and very drinkable
Texture - Very light and refreshing
Overall - Very drinkable pale ale with unbelievably dank aroma for the mild bitterness. This would be a good starter beer for someone who doesn’t love APA/IPAs. It would also be a great summer beer spacecube (1810) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2018
Bottle, clear golden brown pour, small white head. Aroma is light caramel malts, pine and grapefruit hop, light bodied, slightly oily palate drying to a pleasant balanced finish with a little bitterness. Carbonation is soft.

Pours an ever so slightly hazy golden colour with minimal head retention after a minute or so. Aromas are big floral and citrus New World Hops, big piney hop hit. Taste has some fruitiness and caramel notes but is dominated by quite an assertive piney hop bitterness. A beer full of flavour but lacks a bit of balance from malt sweetness for my taste. brownaler (742) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - DEC 26, 2017
Bready malts present in the body with a toasty finish. Great beer by Firestone. Miły (109) - Kielce, POLAND - DEC 26, 2017
Wygląd: Barwa blado złota z drobnopęcherzykową pianą złamanej bieli, początkowo lekko wychodzącą z butelki opada do kożucha pozostawiając lacing.
Aromat: Cytrusy w szczególności cytryna, zest cytryny, pomarańcz, mandarynka, min. słodki grejpfrut z owocami tropikalnymi (słodkimi) jak mango, brzoskwinia; multiwitamina. Delikatna słodowość chlebowa. Trochę żywicy, lasu i iglaków.
Smak: Cytrusy i owoce tropikalne podobnie jak w aromacie, lekko kwiatowe, trochę lasu i żywicy, niewielka ilość słodowej chlebowości i nuta karmelu. Goryczka niziutka i krótka, może minimalnie ściągająca, cytrusowa. Wysycenie dość wysokie, treściwość niska podbita przez nagazowanie. Finisz żywiczno - cytrusowy, lekko trawiasty.
Aromat i smak jest lekki, nic nie atakuje, pijalne. Bottle on 22.11.16 panda_brewmaster (151) - Bournemouth, Dorset, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 26, 2017 Hoppy, crisp and lively carbonated. Bitterness overpowers the pale malt sweetness. Quite average. matstrange (265) - Kent, ENGLAND - DEC 21, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2017 Distinctly average. Nice and easy to drink session IPA, even quite refreshing. But everything is dialled down. Weak hop aroma and flavour, thin head and only a little citrus flavour.
