Pours in a pint glass at the Wexford Ale House. Nice deep bronze color but not opaque. Sort of cloudy. Head stayed a little while and lacing was good. Not real hoppy tasting but a very nice follow typical of a good APA. Had it with fried pickles and it paired great. Wife took a sip and said she liked it and she isn't a Hoppy kind of person. BTW she is drinking the Thirsty dog Barktober.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Serving Type - Growler

Appearance - Golden tan/yellow, with a nice 2 inch foamy head. Tons of sticky lacing.

Smell - Wet hops, orange, pine, grapefruit. Some lemon, grassy with a malt backbone.

Taste - Nice mild wet hop kick, mixed some caramel malts. Pine, orange, lemon along with some added sweet sugars makes a smooth easy drinking beer. A smooth grassy and herbal note from the wet hops mixes well with the malts.

Mouthfeel - Very smooth wet hops coats the tongue. Caramel malts along with some sugars coats the palate. The aftertaste comes up wet hopped, grassy and lemon smooth.

Overall - A nice smooth, easy to enjoy beer. Nothing groundbreaking, just easy to drink and enjoy. Cant beat a solid beer fresh from the brewery that you can sit at home and drink.

Served in a nonic at Piper's pub. The brew appears a clouded orange color with a frothy white topping. A full wall of lace hangs on the glass as the cap slowly fades.

The aroma is lightly vegetative like many fresh hop ales are but it isnt distracting. There is an accenting rindy note that gets somewhat fruity and floral as it warms up with little to no grain backing.

The flavor is quite grassy with that same vegetative hop aspect that is pronounced in the nose. it has a rindy bitterness zesty aspect across the back with a clean fresh grain appeal that hardly provides any contrasting sweetness.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is easy drinking for the most part and a decent example of a fresh hop ale. I would drink it again but im not in a hurry to go out of my way to have it again.
