4.28/5  rDev +3.9%

Draft at Toronado San Diego.

Pours a dark golden orange color with a one finger white head.  Good retention, slowly settling into a lasting, thick ring.  Chunks of soapy lace left behind.

Earthy, floral aroma with dank, resinous hops giving off lots of pine and citrus.  Hints of pineapple and grapefruit counter the earthier notes.  Pale biscuit malt presence.

Medium bodied wih a blast of sticky, dry hops that linger throughout into a slightly boozy finish.  Bitter and dry with dank pine needle flavor countered  by tropical and citrus fruit, especially pineapple and orange peel.  Subtle malt backbone for balance with hints of graham cracker and biscuit.  Very well balanced and extremely quaffable.

Pizza Port
Carlsbad, CA

Golden amber with a inch-high off-white head and leaves tons of sticky, splotchy lace down the glass. Gorgeous!

Pungent citrus and tropical fruit aromas along with a strong punch of pine: this just smells fresh!

An incredibly hop-forward pale--there really isn't much else here, though that's exactly what I love about it! The pine, floral, and citrus hop notes are here in abundance with the grapefruit and orange leading the way.

Medium mouthfeel with ample carbonation.

A fantastic, incredibly delicious, fresh-hopped pale. This is tremendous beer!

*from 09/30/11 notes

A: Arrives a light copper color with streaming carbonation and great clarity. Beige 2 finger frothy head with hangtime and a really nice window dressing.

S: Smells just herbalcious with freshy fresh wet hops. Grapefruit zest. So floral and fruity.

T: So Fresh!!! Citrus-Grapefruit, florals, pine. Just danky wet hops lingering forever from sticky hop resins. Packs a decent amount of bitterness with a nice caramel backdrop bringing in some sugary balance. Awesome batch. Insane to be called a Pale Ale.

M: A creamy light texture. Great carbonation. Sticky resinous hop oils that coat the tongue and bitter the palate.

D: MAN THIS BATCH IS ON POINT!!! Not sure if it is because I only get this brew once a year or just a good crop but man this is so tasty. With fresh nugs and refreshingly light body.

One of the better fresh hop Ales around. A real hop treat and must try each year for me.

A- Great light golden color with a darker golden hue in the middle. Awesome retention, with a nice white head.

S- Lots of hop resins!! Smells like a freshly cracked hop cone. Great hop aroma thats balanced out a very mild malt sweetness.

T- Hops, hops, and hops. Bitter, piney, and ends with a subtle citrus. Awesome use of bittering hops.

M- med light body, good carb on the palate, and with a great finish.

O- amazing fresh hop pale. Drinks more like an ipa or even DIPA.

Draft. Poured at Toronado San Diego into a pint glass a orange amber color with a fluffy white head. Nice lace. Danky, citrus and piney aroma of hops in the nose. Sweet start gives way to building hoppy bitterness. Nice medium mouthfeel. Decenlty solid wet hop.

On-tap at Pizza Port Carlsbad

A: The pour is a clear, golden orange color with a dense white head and some sticky lacing.

S: Wow, lots of citrus aromas to this one. Tons of grapefruit along with pineapple and bitter pine hops. Really no malt whatsoever.

T: A nice bitter bite of pine and grapefruit peel. Great grapefruit and pineapple flavors are present as well and provide a well rounded and dominating hoppiness.

M: The body is medium with a fairly high level of carbonation and a nice crisp finish.

D: This beer was just fantastic. So easy to drink and wonderfully done hopping. I had no problem drinking my glass of this.
