3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fits within the broad range of an APA. Balanced correctly but there's a slight resin overtone that lingers. Not something I would order again but it's a very 'American' pale ale.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours cloudy medium orange amber. Small soapy white head, fairly lasting with decent lace. Aroma is sweet, medium caramel, peach, orange, overripe pineapple, perhaps a little grapefruit in there. Flavor is similar but with more bitter hop presence and a sort of sugary sweetness. Medium to light body. Finish is fairly dry, with some building pine and grapefruit bitterness. A bit watery. Tad too sweet. Perhaps past its prime.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Fairly hoppy, peach, citrus, pineapple. A little pine.
Taste-very hoppy, bitter, dry finish. Some fruit and pine as well. As with many oso beers, it’s not bad but not great, a fairly regular beer.

Piney, grassy, nose with hints of strawberry. Cloudy amber, medium head. Milder grassy flavor. Medium body. Really lacking in intensity and personality.

This is ok. Basic pale ale. Not much flavor besides the hops, which is only ok. O’so definitely has better, but this is still ok.

Aroma is dominated with hoppy citrus notes and the head is frothy and lacing. The taste is sweet with a bitter finish but overall doesn’t have too full of a body or too crisp of a finish. An average APA but refreshing and local.

Clear copper - soapy lace - thin and watery texture - tastes a little metallic and coppery up front - lightly citric and woody hops - moderate acidity followed by some bready malt and light caramel - meh.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours an Extremely opaque orange. Looks like apple cider. one and a half fingers of off white head. Very little lacing. Nose is very hoppy and bitter. Pine, citrus and bitter hops. The resin and citrus mix is very potent. A lot of grapefruit, pineapple and floral notes. Mouth is bitter With a decent hop bite. Sort of bland for my hop preference. A slight sweetness is present but its not much. Resin is more present here. Average beer, but definitely not engaging like the label says.

This is a nicely hopped pale ale. In fact i would have though it was a mild ipa if it wasnt labeled pale ale. Overall a good beer if you want to try an ipa even thoigh it isnt one
