look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A - Dark pink body with orange highlights, clear, with minimal white head which fades quickly to a thin rim, with no lacing to see.

S - Primarily a nose of acidity, fruity, with a touch of fresh cut grass and flowers.

T - Follows the nose, with a strong fruit acidity over a quiet malt core, a touch of pine and menthol, and a close that is mostly sourness and a hint of bitterness.

M - Brisk, very brisk, carbonation, a light bright feel, and a lingering prickliness in the close.

O - What an interesting Pale. Hops are quite restrained, in favor of general tart fruit highlights. Not what I'd grab often, but a welcome exploration.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.
This ale has a fine looking Reddish cooter body that has high clarity and a short bit durable beige head.
Fruity and slightly floral aroma.
Flavor: floral, herbal and fruity hops dominate. Moderately bitter and lightly tart with lingering woody and grapefruit peel bitterness.
Medium-full body with soft, medium light carbonation.

Color is interesting with a pink or purple hue. It's a fruity beer with citrus and (I guess) dragon fruit flavors. Finish is pleasant. Overall it exceeded my expectations

Had it on tap and the fruity flavors almost made it seem like a gose, it was refreshing and easy to drink. It had a tart bite that was offset by the malty/biscuit backbone. I’m not sure I’d buy a 6 pack of it, but I’d drink it again.

In this partly hazy amber brew, toasted biscuit is paired with slightly tart dragonfruit and passionfruit that's slightly pungent with hints of orangey hops via a frothy medium body and semi-dry finish.

L: brilliant copper blanketed by 1" of white foam with a very fine bead

S: passion fruit, pear, carrot and fruit with light biscuit aromas in the background

T: Carrot and light vegetable leads the flavors supported by berry, pear and fruit

F: Exceptionally creamy texture with a medium body and above average carbonation

O: gets points for uniqueness and has an interesting blend of flavors that submerges the pale ale character a little bit

Look Deep Crystal clear ruby red with a medium white head with pink highlights. No activity.

Smell: A balanced blend of pear juice, dragonfruit, passionfruit, red currants, and floral notes. There tell tale dogfish head yeast note. It smells like a fruity 60 minute IPA.

Taste: Pear and passionfruit juice right off the attack. Then a slightly tart red currant note and a full dragonfruit flavor. All of these notes are fresh and in no way artificial. The body has a clean malt body with a earthy hop note.

Feel: Light bodied and refreshing. Very aqueous. No bitterness. A light tartness. No alcohol present. Prickly carbonation.

Overall: A nice refreshing pale ale with a interesting light tart note. It’s nothing too fruity or mind blowing. However, the fruit isn’t even close to artificial and it taste good. A nice treat for this hot summer weather.

This APA is trying way too hard. I don't think it could succeed except maybe as a really fresh ale.

It pours a bizarre rose color, with hardly any normal hear either, just some fine soda pop fizz. The aroma is a hodgepodge of all those adjuncts. The taste is not crisp or really bitter, but an amalgam of dragons and yumyums, whatever those are, being more fresh tasting than usual.

Not recommended. I'm not sure what need this beer filled.
