Review from BeerAdvocate Magazine Issue #39 (Apr 2010):

Professional nano-breweries could be the second coming of craft brewers, brewing beer at 1 barrel at a time with "green" thinking in mind.

Heady beginnings, the lace wants to be noticed as it clings to the glass. Shiny copper color displays the bubbles in its true beery fashion. Orange blossoms, ripe pears, shortbread and dusty yeast are in the nose. Long smoothness, a bit of creaminess in the medium body ... bottle-conditioned brews are a step above the rest when it comes to sheer mouthfeel. Orangey hoppiness dials in somewhat strong (not the bitterness, but the flavor). Malt character throws down a crisp, cracker-like flavor, which stays on the palate for a while. The hops and malt go together well, no battle ... just harmony. Finishes with some yeast but more fresh, crisp malt and orangey hop flavor.

Impressive small-batch ale to be had; by far one of the most interesting Pale Ales out there. Different in that the complexities ask the taste buds to work hard, but the beer manages to stay quaffable at the same time.
