4.08/5 rDev -3.1%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a bomber into a Bell's tulip. The pour is very clear with a light copper color. It sports 2 fingers of dense off-white head with some pretty good retention. Fairly faint, flowery nose with notes of cedar and grapefruit.
Medium-light bodied beer with moderate carbonation. There are some toasty notes up front and a substantial, sweet malt backbone. The hops are primarily citrusy with just a hint of cedary, almost minty, spice. The breadiness up front and citrusy hops combine to give a toast and marmalade flavor that is neither too sweet nor too pithy. I could almost swear there is a woodiness or rye-like flavor lurking in there as well. I believe I also detect some cascade- or amarillo-like flavors. It provides a nice counter to the grapefruit. This is strong for the style, but I detect no booziness at all. It's very drinkable.
This is a hoppy beer that seems much milder than it really is. Where the hops of SNPA or FFF Alpha King can hit you like a grassy fist, this one seems subdued, but the hops are definitely there. They sort of wrap themselves in an herbal cloak and sneak in on the heels of the biscuity malt, then open up and treat you to all sorts of interesting flavors; some fruity, some vegetative, some piney. All good.

Black Husky Pale Ale
Tasting notes originally from 1/25/14. Enjoyed this on tap at the Honey Pie Cafe. This was served chilled in a shaker pint glass.
A) This was a honey colored brew, with a small off white head. The head settled to a collar. There was a fair amount of lacing.
S) Nice hop aroma of pine and citrus. A little malty sweetness comes through as well.
T) Delightful citrus, tropical fruit, along with a pleasant pine tingle. This is intertwined nicely with the malt, creating excellent drinkability.
M) A medium bodied brew. The carbonation was really soft, and not what I experienced from the bottle.
O) This is an outstanding pale ale... Excellent flavor and aroma. Really a pleasure to drink.
Paired with the pork fries... Those were really tasty too.
Serving type: on-tap
