Draft service into a becker glass at Bruery Provisions in Orange, CA.

A: Slightly hazy, light amber color with one finger of persistent off-white foam head. Heavy, nearly-continuous sheets of lacing remain on the glass.

S: Floral and piney hops keep pace with each other, and also strike a balance with husky but dry crystal malt.

T: Begins almost dry, with intense rose flower and mild orange citrus hop aromatics. Acidity is restrained, appropriate, into the drying middle where hop flavors become more green herbaceous and a thread of toasted malt emerges. The finish is easy, mildly bitter with rustic malt that peaks late.

M: Thin to medium viscosity, wet and balanced on the palate, with moderate carbonation.

D/O: A world-class pale ale that possesses a remarkable and unusual hops profile that is worth remembering (and hopefully reproducing.) Not exactly West Coast, but obsessively dry-hopped and focused on appealing aromatic hop qualities. It is difficult to recollect a more floral ale, whose other qualities bear such marks of fine craftsmanship. (1,065 characters)

Thanks for sharing, NoSignsOfPain!

Clear golden amber. Thick white head and spots of lace left down the glass.

The aromas are of orange citrus, melon, pineapple, guava: an overwhelming aroma of fresh and pungent hops! The aromas are so bright, they practically leap out of the glass.

This beer is smooth, easy to drink, clean and disappearing, yet bitingly hoppy, pungent and citrusy. It's fruity, it's balanced, it's bitter, it's biting, it's tropical. It's everything I've ever wanted in a beer. It's superb.

Smooth, crisp, creamy yet airy, heavenly mouthfeel! This beer is extraordinary.

A masterpiece. One of those perfect beers.
The only pale ale better than Alpine's Hoppy Birthday. (728 characters)

Pours a surprisingly dark orange for a beer that is only 4.6%. Thin head, white. Slides down the glass, not much head or retention, but the burnt orange is really what is impressive to me. The smell is a fair funky hop presence. Funky citrra nelson type aroma. Grassy and loads of citrus.

Light mouthfeel in terms of malt body, the hops are flavorful, and not all that bitter, enjoyment maximized, thank you. Allows the pine to come out, you get equal mixes of citrus, tropical fruit and piney mild menthol. Very easy to drink, this makes it tough to go back to the usual stuff at the store. I think the carbonation is a little lower than their other humulus beers, that might be what is causing the oily slickness that a lot of people are talking about. Its far from a negative.

Actually pretty complex when you think about it. Orange, pineapple, pine. Yum Yum. (866 characters)

nice copper tone, with a good sized head that has some nice clumping and staying power as well as some decent lacing throughout. Smell is wonderfully hopped, like a pine cone dipped in orange juice! Fantastic full hoppy smell. Taste is right up with the smell. Full on hops from the gate. Piney, very grassy and citus, AWESOME. Very smooth with a nice dry aftertaste (366 characters)
