In my neck of the woods this beer is on tap all over the place, so iv'e had my share. It pours a rich golden color with little head. It has some lacing that can be seen sip after sip, but nothing crazy. Bitter hop presence is found backed by a timid sweet malty backside. Very earthy smelling beer that reminds you why its label is green. A very refreshing APA that doesn't separate itself from the pack too much, but enough to deserve a spot in your fridge or cooler for a hot summer weekend. They didn't screw this brew up.

Pours to a golden-tinted copper with a skimming of off-white suds.
It noses of doughy breads, graduating toastier over times, with a floral, piney, and lightly citric hop backing.
Doughy up front in the mouth, toastiness grows and grows from underneath until it becomes the feature. Hops bring lime juice, floral, and a dab of pine, but seem overmatched, as more bitterness could be used to override the lingering sweet-toasty flavors.
Medium bodied, with little carbonation.
It's not entirely bad, but lacks the balance- and thus the sessionability- that I look for in a Pale Ale.

12oz single, Riley's

never heard of this brewery, so glad riley's had single of their main brands

appearance: poured into a standard pint glass, clear copper-amber body with a light beige froth and light lacing

smell: toasted grain, toasted malt, crisp hops

taste: a well done pale - not a hopbomb by any stretch but a nice balance of grassy herbal hops and toasted grain and malt. i had 2 of these and could see drinking this again over the summer

mouthfeel: light and crisp

drinkability: great

Poured a slightly hazed copper with a thin soap ring head, no lacing or retention.

The nose is very faint with a light off bit of hops, almost euro lager like.

Wow the flavor is just bad, very metallic and full of diacytle oilyness. Very bad, I hope this just an off batch.

The mouthfeel is thin and watery.

This is bad, Not sure if I'm going to even be able to finish it, its like a really old oxidized green bottle eurolager.

Pours a hazy amber color with a large head that has excellant retention. Heavy lacing is left on the glass. Has a citrus aroma, mostly orange. A little mustiness from the malt is also noted. The flavor is a bit odd. Mostly citrus, like Sunny-D or some other orange flavored drink. I cannot detect any flavor from the malt. The body is on the thin side but the carbonation is at a decent level. The flavor did not really appeal to me but others may like it more. Could of used a different malt bill to compliment the citrus flavors. I will likely pass on this in the future.

A: The beer pours a large, almost overflowing white head, about four inches tall. The beer is an amber golden with fairly good active carbonation. The head, as it settles, makes a nice mousse on top. It's very, but not perfectly, clear. 4.5

S: Hoppy, but not extremely so. It's strongly American hops, piney and citrusy, but there is a slightly spicy note in there as well. I'm impressed with the balance and restraint. 4.0

T: The flavor, like the aroma, is restrained, perhaps more so. There are the same mild pine and citrus notes, but a slight astringency in the finish. The whole finish sort of falls apart. It's nice up front, but leaves nothing to long to return. As I drink more I find less and less to like. 3.5

M: Creamy smooth, which very nice, but the hops don't add too much sharpness, nor does the carbonation, which is a problem. 3.5

D: It's drinkable, better than average either, but this is not something I'll be seeking too much of again. 3.5
