Bottled 2/14/17. I've had three of these starting about one month after bottling and each time I am wondering if something is off with my smell and tastebuds. I get very little smell and taste, just the slightest malt hops. Very average and won't be rebuying, especially at the 3F price point.

Thanks to Grizzarky for this one, from NBS BIF #5. 12oz bottle poured into 12oz flared tulip. Bottled on 2/7/17. Poured a lightly hazy golden amber color, with about a half inch of off-white head that had good lacing and moderate retention.

The aroma was dominated by a bubblegummy sweetness. There was a very light grain aroma in the background, and not much hop presence. The bubblegum wasn't notable on the tongue, but the rest of the olfactory aspects were about the same on the palate. Nothing particularly notable, flavorwise.

The body was smooth and even, fairly typical for the style. Drinkability was decent, but the lack of personality makes one ask why they're bothering. Overall, not terrible, but not really notable either. I suspect that this is a beer that sells just on its name. The brewery probably sells a fair number of T-shirts with the label art.

Just a fairly average pale ale. Nothing remarkably good or bad about it.

This is a solid American Pale Ale with a lot of malt and bread flavor added to a hint of citrus and melon or pear favors on the bitter aftertaste. Not my personal favorite beer, but I'm not a big fan of a plain pale ales, but I had to give this a try since I got a chance to get my hands on it.

Pours a clear dark orange with a finger head. Aroma-a bit flowery, and lemony, grapefruit, hint of mango. Taste- ripe pineapple, and mango, a decent malt profile to this. A little minty. Mouthfeel has medium carbonation. Overall, this ain't knocking my socks off or anything. But it's a nice beer.
