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.

Pours a huge, dense head that has great persistence and GREAT lacing. INSANE, AMAZING, BRIGHT grapefruit aroma with notes of pine behind it all. Holy hell, this smells phenomenal! Radiant, gold color. Starts off with a bright, insanely brilliant pine-grapefruit hoppiness. The bitterness is a very nice, low-medium level. The hop bitterness shifts into the citrus rind, but with pine still throughout. Finish is a mix of grapefruit and pine with low, lingering bitterness and then a touch of malt.

This is STUNNING; maybe the best Pale Ale I've ever had. The hop intensity of this one is just off the charts...BUT, it keeps the hop bitterness restrained so well. This is just pleasant, pleasant, and more pleasantness. I think this is the highest scored bier I've ever had....

Black Husky's Pale Ale is harvest orange with tarnished copper highlights and a slight haze. Carbonation rises slowly to the ballooning, fluffy, dirty white head. The head is no less than three fingers in height on an easy pour and shows no signs of going anywhere fast. Craggy and dense foam leaves behind fat lacing.

The nose is bursting with pineapple juice, sweet orange peel, sweetened grapefruit, pine, and wildflower florals. Citrus is dense and sweet while the other aspects are simply complimentary. The hop profile shows a lot of depth over the caramel, white toast, and biscuity malt, the caramel playing boss. The complexity is deep on this pale although it does weigh in at a hefty 7.2%.

Citrus comes up big on the front, sweet orange peel, sugared grapefruit, and pineapple juice again. Caramel kicks in mid-palate with light toast and the pine resinous takes over on the backend leaving a lasting bitterness. The florals come through the nose more than anything and the pine lingers long after the swallow.

The body is slick with a touch of stick but the carbonation is active enough to keep it moving. Bitterness grows with each drink to firm and lasts the entirety. The finish is dry enough it leaves me wanting drink after drink, conclusion: this beer goes down much faster than it should for 7%+.

I had this beer on tap recently and it blew away some of my favorite IPAs, that will remain nameless, that I was trying side by side. The bottle isn't quite as fresh as the draft I had but it's still undeniably a delicious beer. If you ever find this stuff on draft buy one after the other, it's that good.
