3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz. bottle from On the Vine. English pint shows a murky amber color with great retention and fluffy lacing sticky all the way down the side. Average carbonation. Big grapefruit nose with bready malt. Taste is nicely balanced with the sweet bread malt and fruity / herbal hops. A bit of a grainy flavor. The hops linger on your palate well after the sip. Finish is mostly a dry texture, yet the hops make me salivate. This is a finely made APA.

Very nice color and nice head when poured. Easy to drink and we enjoyed tonite with spicy chicken wings and tacos. A very smooth ale.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22 oz bottle from The Beer Store. Pours a hazy amber/orange with a one finger off white head. A bit of weak lacing. Bready, caramel aroma hints at the sweet caramel base to come in the flavor. Also, some floral hop flavors as well, but the malt is dominate. Full, smooth palate with low carbonation. Quite nice, will have to revisit this one.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a deep reddish copper color with a healthy white head that shows moderate retention and lace. Smells of bready, toffee and caramel malts with just enough floral and earthy hoppiness to keep this fairly balanced. Taste is kind of sweet and a bit heavy on the caramel. Lightly fruity flavor with just a hint of chocolate and enough floral earthy hops to almost counter the sweetness. Finishes fairly dry with a lingering earthy hop bite. Medium body and level of carbonation with a sweet slick almost syrupy mouthfeel. Nice pale ale, but a little heavy and sweet for the style although I would drink this again.
