On tap in a sampler at the brewpub 4/8/11.
Lots of citrusy hops in the nose. I'm liking it already!
Clear amber liquid, topped with a lacy white head.
Definitely hop accented in the mouth, but with enough malt to back it up. Lots of flavor but not at all heavy, this one walks the balance line very well. The finish is hoppy with a slight coarseness in the lingering bitterness.
Nicely done, and eminently drinkable.

Pours dark amber/honey colored with thick foamy head. Head retention and lacing on the glass is excellent. Citrusy, hoppy aroma. Great hop forward taste followed by a smooth citrus malty taste. Aftertaste is bitter but not too bitter. The hops and malts are balanced very well. Great beer!!

This is a walnut-colored beer with a small, airy head. The aroma gives off herbal, grassy hop notes, with a slight amount of toasted malt underneath. The flavor is a good balance of malt and hops. Bitterness is medium-high, with good grassy, piney hop flavor. The malt is lightly crystal with some nutty, toasty characteristics. Light bodied but well-carbonated. Not exceptional, but very drinkable.

Pours a rich copper, small head. Smell is fruity, gummy bears, and fresh but subtle. Taste is smooth, very fruity, gummy bear malt, light bitterness. Very drinkable with medium body, light carbonation. Might prefer a touch more spritziness, but the flavor is nice, hoppy but not harsh at all and it goes down easily. I like it. Like a bowl of dry hopped melted gummy bears.

Hop aroma bursts from the can and spills into your glass.An orange-amber color greets the eye. A one -finger head disapates fairly quickly. This is a great smelling beer for a pale ale ..grass, pine, and tropical fruit.The brewer says this is dry-hopped with simcoe and I believe it. Wonderful balance and very drinkable, I really like this beer.
