Poured from the bottle. Not much to speak of in terms of aroma. Just hints of both malt and hops. Nothing significant. Taste is mostly pale malt with minor op bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium, and drinks pretty smooth. ok for a basic pale ale.

Bottle. This starts well, with a voluminous pour and a nice, airy, piney aroma. But then, although not imperfect, it mostly comes across as an "every day" beer, with little distinctive flavor beyond a very mellow, sip-able brew. (#6401, 11/18/2016)

Bottle. Grassy, lightly soapy orange malt and orange peel aroma (soapy aroma much more apparent in the head). Golden yellow with giant head. Lightly sweet orange biscuit malt and moderately bitter grapefruit peel flavor. Decent body.

Bottle, Wine Warehouse, CHO.
Pours slightly hazy amber with a small off white head.
Smells of citrus hops and earth.
Taste is an immediate funk of wet Lipton tea bags... some sour notes and bitter peel.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
APPEARANCE- dark golden yellow, like straw. perfectly clear. Amazingly tenacious head with luxurious lacing.
NOSE- moderate strength resinous hop. Slightly fruity hop scents color the resin scents nicely.
FLAVOR- good flavors with a little hop bitterness.
NOTES- nice pale ale that’s not overpowering with hop, which is nice for a pale ale.
