Had this on tap at a restaurant. The beer has a slight amber appearance but has a clear gold look and a very creamy head and lacing. Faint aromas. Honestly can’t smell much. In terms of taste, the beer has a very light bitter flavor. The mouthfeel was light but creamy. Overall, this was nice, just wish aromas had dimension.

Excellent local brew, refreshing taste and very drinkable. Not going to blow you away with flavor, but nice and hoppy. New rebranding makes it more presentable.

This is an above average beer for the style. It pours a darker orange color, with a fluffy white head. There is a little lacing left on the glass.

Poured 12oz bottle into snifter. Copper orange with a 1 finger white head. Thick collar and some lacing. Fruity and piney hops along with a nice sweet malt. Starts off with sweet malts, bread and some caramel, moves into the hops which are citrus and pine. Finish has some bitterness. Medium to light feel with nice carbonation. A nicely hopped English PA with a excellent malt backbone.

This is an average tasting beer. It is a nice EPA but it is nothing over the top or to turn into your go-to beer. It does have very nice color, taste, and finish, but I definitely prefer other EPAs over this one.

This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a glossy pale orange with a finger’s worth of a smooth white level head. As the head dissipated, stringy lacing stuck around the sides. The smell had a cooked caramel aroma with a slight burnt pale citrus hops about it. The taste was basically bitter with a side of caramel running about it in the background. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was mild but somewhat there. Overall, it’s an extra pale ale that fits the bill for the style and is okay to me.

So what we have here is a pretty good American pale.

It pours nice and golden with nice lacing and little fizzies. The aroma is a weakfish slightly funky smell.

The taste is bitter and malty on the side, but also a little funky. The aftertaste also has a little something funk in it.

Not recommended.
