got this one from a friend and and wow, I mean wow. Finally, a pale ale you can chew on. Nice big white foam, that lasts. Simcoe hops that are grapefruity and floral but neither dominates and both are laced with a full dry hopped flavor that is just at the edge of being bitter with dipping into it. Sweet and green, my new #1 pale ale. Getting it is the only hard part. If that doesn't convince you just look in howler's eyes.

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.
