L: A good one and a half inches of head, thickish foam a good beige-ish off white color. Good retention on the head too. Absolutely clear perfect copper color I'd say 10-11 on the SRM chart.

S: Great aroma, immediately good amounts of both fruity and floral. There is a little toastiness and richness to it as far as hops - low to moderate like it says it should be 4 an American Pale Ale. The fruity scents are a little tangerine and I would say even blueberry, not strong, but I got a little whiff of them with the beer siting on the table about a foot and a half away from me. So, esters definitely present. Alcohol is definitely there, but not too strong.

T: Once I tased it, that's when the maltiness kicked in. Definitely a toasted flavor towards the dark end of the spectrum. A little earthy, a little grassy with a grapefruit flavor to it. A little bit of floral by the fourth sip, not much.

F: Mildly astringent at the very end medium body and thickness. Definitely dry at the finish. No sweetness that I could taste. Medium carbonation to the high side of medium.

O: Not bad. It hit a lot of the marks for the American Pale Ale standard. It wasn't jump out of the pack, but it wasn't bad either. I would say it fits about in the middle, but they did get a pretty color. Nice kick at 6.2% ABV though.

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Pours an orange amber color. Just a dusting of head and light blotchy lacing. A bit of pine in the scent. A well-balanced pale ale. Nice representation of the style but not memorable. (8.0)

I liked this one!!!! Poured a clear copper color into a pint glass. Big frothy white head with good retention. Thick bands of lacing on the glass. Smell is not that robust, but it includes some citrus and floral hops. Taste is more pronounced. Good bitterness, Floral (or herbal whatever) hops and some citrus hops and some balancing bready malt.

Mouthfeel may be a hair light, but it is crisp with good hops "bite". At 6.2%, you could enjoy a second one!!! I would drink this again. Good APA.

Decent APA but a little hard to figure out, malt and hops need a tad adjusting. Interestingly, seems like a malty bite with a sweeter hop taste. Appreciate a hidden yeasty taste and like the hoppy ending but generally at times a little rough.
