3.53/5  rDev -7.1%

An ideal first beer of the evening.

Lovely off-white head, which stays nicely, and lovely lacing thoughout.
Crisp and refreshing, but neither bland nor overpowering. Citrus and floral notes, with a balanced bitter backbone.

Reminds me of Fat Yak, interesting tho to compare the industry/public profile of these two beers!

Could have had a couple more of these, sadly I moved on to the Bavarian Red...

Tasted at the brewpub as a part of $15 "Tasting Crate".
Submitted a correction to this; it's American Pale Ale, and has ABV of 5.0%
Big grapefruit bomb of a beer. Nice hit of late aroma hops . Passionfruit seed spiciness. Smooth and crisp, but somewhat sharp on the palate.
This is arguably up there with LCPA. Recommended.

Pours a pale yellow colour with light haze in the glass. Body looks nice. Head is decent, thin but good retention. Lacing is alright too, speckled in spots, looks good.

Lots of cascade hops on the nose, nice floral hoppy character, with some pineapple and passionfruit seeds - possibly sauvin as well? Not sure. Definitely a pleasant West Coast character, very fresh and floral.

Nice floral hops and passionfruit on the palate, with a fairly distinct bitterness throughout. Fruit seed character on the mid and an earthy, organic bitterness. Nice hop flavours throughout and a good balance. Mostly bitter but it's a tempered bitterness, doesn't rip the roof of your mouth out like a mega-hop-raped 4IPA might do, it's just a nice clean ale.

Mouthfeel is alright, but pretty thin. Lots of carbonation produces this fizzy feeling, don't really like that, gives it a soft drink kind of texture. But not too horrible.

This is definitely a pleasant drinking beer. Good, disciplined use of hops makes it nice and clean.
