Poured from a 16oz. can into a Sam Adams glass.

A- Pours a light amber with a two finger white head, great clarity.

S- Great aroma here that reminded me a tad of Zombie Dust but to a lesser degree. Has that sort of Juicy Fruit gum hop aroma with some dankness. Slight toasted malts coming through.

T- The aroma gave me a bit of Zombie Dust but the flavor doesn't really. More of a straight forward citrus and pine pale ale. Pine mostly and some citrus peel with a light toasted malt note. Finishes with a medium bitterness.

M- Light, very easy to drink.

O- Got this as an extra in a quick IP trade and really appreciate the chance to try it. This is definitely a great pale ale an is one of the best smelling pales I've had. Really enjoyed the drinkablity of it. If I lived in their distribution I would certainly have this in my rotation. I thought maybe there was a touch of Citra in here given I think it smells a bit like Zombie Dust but all info online seems to say it's Warrior, Centennial, Simcoe, Amarillo, and Columbus. Maybe the combo of Centennial and Amarillo and Simcoe is giving me that Juicy Friut hop aroma. Guess I'm not getting any better at the identifying hop thing.

Had it on draft at a place with brisk craft beer sales. The first couple sips reminded me of Zombie Dust (which I love). Each subsequent sip revealed more and more pine resin flavor, until I found it to be unbearably astringent.

Tried it again to confirm my initial take, only from a can this time. Same impression. This beer is just not for me.

Not sure if it was just the can I had, but this one had a sour taste. I was expecting a hoptacular blow out but it didn't deliver

Poured from a can into a tulip

A. Pours a hazy amber color with a white foamy 2 finger head.

S. Sweet pumpernickel bread malt aroma. Piney and floral hop character.

T. Nice sweet malt character. Piney hop taste with some bitterness. Finishes very clean. Borderline sessionable.

M. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation that lingers.

O. A nice pale ale from half acre. Nothing really special but nothing bad at all. Very easy to drink. A safe bet for an always satisfying beer.
