3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz bottle from Akron area ACME FreshMarket. Pours coppery with a creamy, foamy head. Malt and hops dominate, both in taste and aroma, with a bit of pine, cereal and caramel flavors, and a hint of something floral I canít pick out. The hop bitterness is nice but not overwhelming. Very nice and well balanced.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Nose pine and caramel, woodsy-herbal, touch of mint, resin; pour rich deep (and hazy) golden with some darker orange/copper undertones, a rocky cream head. Clean but lightly rubbery strong bitterness, above-mentioned tones plus newfound lemony citrus, resin and wood backed way off. Moderately dry but with the threat of sweetness starting with the hops, malt is flat and the medium-full body a touch watery at times. Fine. [2016.08.23: 3.1]

Simple, straightforward and citrus-y pale ale. Nothing to write home about, but sticky and lengthy finish, some pepper and some soapy aromas. A good hoppy pale.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 ounce bottle into pint glass, no bottle dating. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus hops and moderate pale malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon/orange peel, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity and robustness of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and resinous sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an excellent American pale ale style. All around great complexity of bright citrus/pine hops and moderate pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
