Very very carbonated and a tingly feel. Tasted kind if weak, almost watered down. Didn't seem real fresh and realized that the drink by date passed over six months ago. Maybe that was the problem. May try again if I can find one that is still in date. Not giving up as the other beers by this brewer have been great

From a brown 12 ounce bottle - Pours a slightly cloudy orange/yellow color. Smells sweet and hoppy. Below average carbonation. First sip is all grassy hops but is certainly missing a needed stronger malt backbone. Reminds me of terrapin's hop shortage ale.

12oz : tulip snifter.
bottled: 03/16/12

Fairly clear, golden-yellow. Foamy white head, average retention, nice lacing.

Light bouquet of citric, floral and pine hops.

Citric floral hops, bready, biscuit finish.

Medium light body with average prickly carbonation. Finishes a bit watery.

Fairly average overall, and just a bit disappointing/unimpressive.

Presentation: 12 oz short bottle, orange label with a tribal looking log and a USDA Organic logo. Bottled on date is clearly marked, but I don't see an ABV.

Appearance: Clear golden color, nice white head that fades slowly leaving some lacing as it goes.

Smell: Grassy hops, bready malt. Fairly typical APA aromas.

Taste: Hmm - thin, not much flavor .. tastes a bit like a watered down SNPA.

Overall impression: Seems like a lot of organic beers end up tasting thin and watered down - why would that be? This one doesn't have anything blatantly wrong with it, but there certainly isn't much to bring me back either.

A: Pours a hazy light orange color with some amber hues. Provides a loose off-white foam head with moderate retention. Provides ample amounts of lacing.

S: Truly the most disappointing part of this brew. Chilled and warmed there was not much going on. Some light grassy hops, wet hay and maybe some toast.

T: Starts off with a light pale hoppy taste. Some grassy hops. In the middle there is some caramel and toast malt flavor. On the back end there is some wet hay flavor that really takes away from the balance in the middle.

M: A medium bodied beer that leaves a slightly bitter taste on the palate. On the top of the mouth there is also a slight wet hay taste. Not overly appealing.

O: The beer started out alright but for me went downhill fast for me. Not much smell and the wet hey taste was not expected for this pale ale.

I poured this strange beer into my waiting tumbler at 50 degrees. The beer was a cloudy beer for a pale ale. The head almost immediatly fell away and disapeared forever. I thought the beer wasnot very good and tasted bad or maybe it was just a bad batch, The date was still good but I just did not like it. I will not buy again.

A - Light golden honey. Nice white head that settles into little pillows of cream. Nice lace.

S - Very light aroma. Woody hops, spruce. Light pine.

T - Pine. Touch of almost saison-like funk. Light malt. Coriander.

M - Waxy, mildly sweet finish. Unfortunately watery.

O - Ok flavor but the mouthfeel really holds it back.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Look: Very pale yellowish orange with a big light and fluffy white head. Appearance reminds me of a saison.

Smell: Very light citrus on the nose. Lemon and orange notes.

Taste: Flavor is almost non existant. Some biscuit like sweetness and an ever so faint citrus taste. Very light but highly carbonated. A small amount of grassiness.

I should have checked the bottled on date before i purchased because i didnt notice until i opened said bottle that this particular beer is about 10 months old already. Not sure how much hoppiness it's lost in that time. That being said i could session this on a warm day easily.
Plus it's organic.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a clear pint glass. Freshness date on side of label (07/16/09). Single purchased at Market Street Wine Shop (Charlottesville,VA) for $1.50.

A: Brilliant golden with 1-2 finger off-white sticky head with a good cap of lace but not much else.

S: Moldy grass hops aroma and a thin sweet maltiness

T: The hops are too grassy and not bright enough giving this beer a sourish flavor rather than bitter and crisp like an APA should be. Maltload is on the slim side with some pale sweetness but not enough to match the hops off-flavors.

M: Too thin for the style which again pertains to the dearth of malt. Feel is pretty dry in the finish but the moldy grass hops ruin the aftertaste.

D: Not a favorite by any means and not one to go back to despite the freshness.

Metallic like tinge to this copper and bronze colored brew. Great head and great foam, mediocre bubbling.

Nice , Springy grapefruit citrus hop aroma. Add to that some toasted crackers and bread crust.

Taste has watery toasted cracker malt, light citric hops. This APA tastes diluted, not bad tasting, just lacking flavor.

Sessionable if you like watered down tasting pale ales.

s- very herbal and flowery

t- disappointed can taste the flower hops but really no complexity or malt profile and there is a metallic ending/after taste.

m- decent light

Wow, 4%?! I hope this is good, cuz I love me some low ABV beer!

Grain yellow with a solid soapy quilt of whites. Smells of grain and grassy hops, some hints of lemon, but generally simple and crisp. Taste is crackers with a touch of bread and crouton, a bit of bitter and grass flavored hops; taste is okay, but a little more malty than I'd expect from a "extra" pale ale.... Medium on thin bodied with moderate on hi carb with a wet finish. I'm indifferent to this, if it was canned, I'd be all over it for the golf course.

Pours a light clear honey gold with good retention and moderate lacing on the glass.

Aroma of pine and floral hops, very weak.

Taste was citrus, floral hops, a slight hint of sweet malts and you were left with a pine after taste.

Mouthfeel was light towards medium body moderate carbonation with a crisp, dry feel.

Overall this was an average pale ale.

Overall this one was not that impressive, I found it to be a little bitter, I had this one with spaghetti, while at Solitude ski resort, I was not that impressed. I found it to have a kind of pear flavor to it. I should have stuck with the heiniken instead.
