Had a growler filled at the Filling Station in Nashville yesterday.Pours into an impy nonic a clear medium golden with a nice looking sticky white one finger head,good clarity to the body and a nice looking sticky head.Nice hop complexity in the nose with a mix of leafy,grassy,and mild pine resin intertwined with a caramel maltiness.Again good hop compleity on the palate with the pine resin a little more assertive but the grassyy and herbal components are stille there,there is a mix of caramel/biscuit and crystal sugar-like sweetness to make it semi balanced.This is a damn fine APA,just great complexity and fresh tasting,top notch here.

(Served in a bowtie glass)
A- This beer pours a clear deep orange body with a thin film of white head that fades to a ring pretty quickly. There is a sluggish carbonation of tiny bubbles.

S- The rich apricot jam hops aroma is wonderful but a bit muted and there is some soft papery green hop notes in the finish. Some fruit cocktail hints grow as it opens.

T- The apricot jam hops are dry and wonderful. There is an unripe fruit cocktail flavor to follow with a light toasted graham malt hint popping through. The finish has a nice green pungency that lingers softly after each sip.

M- The medium-light mouthfeel has a gentle fizz finish that compliments the hop pungency.

O- This has a great aroma and a great flavor of that classic Galaxy hop. It is just a bit too soft and leaves me wanting more. As it warms, it does get a bit to dry in the finish that takes away from the nice malt character. Just turn it up a bit and this would be a rock star beer.

Pours a fairly clear golden-amber. Average head of off-white suds. Attractive tree-line lacing.

Nose is immediately recognizable -- aromatic Aussie hops with a spiky, sharp, and floral earthiness. Superb.

Taste is also wonderfully brisk and sharp, with notes of bitter grapefruit and earth again. A superlative pale ale that could easily be classified as an IPA, I'd easily pick this up again!

A: Pretty nice light copper color with lots of bubbles going up.

S: Literally the best smelling beer I have ever put my nose to! Wonderful fruits and florals, passion fruit. Just amazing how good this beer smells. It should be an air freshener!

T: Again, fruity, with some bitterness and a little hop.

M: Zippy carb with a medium body and easy finish,

O: If you get a chance to try this I guarantee you will smell this for a good while. DEFINITELY give this one a try.

Big thanks goes out to aasher for sharing this one during the One Year Anniversary of My Wreck Tasting! Served from growler into a Crooked Stave ‘Crooked Line’ tulip. Poured yellow-orange with a half finger white head that subsided to a minimal amount quickly. Maintained excellent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, citrus, pine, pine hop, and earth. The flavor was of sweet malt, pine, pine hop, and onion hop. It had a light feel on the palate with medium-high carbonation. Overall this was a pretty good brew. The aroma on this one really made it stand out for me this night. It was really well balanced, intense, and pleasant. The pine aspect going on here mixed in perfectly with the citrus portion. The flavor while it was quite nice was just not up to the level of the aroma. Would definitely suggest trying this one for any person out there that is curious or gets the chance. Highly recommended.

Gusher when opened, and a glass full of foam.... 3rd or so beer so far, I'm noticing a trend here. Clumps of sparkling foam that billows above the rim and looks like soap suds. Racing carbonation streams in the glass, tons of foam and carbonation.

Aroma is fairly hoppy, restrained and slightly resiny.

Bitter hops, resiny pine, bitter citrus peel in the dry aftertaste. Nice level of happiness, some IPA's aren't this balanced and drinkable. Carbonation seems high, but it may be a storage issue as this is the 3rd bottle from the same box. Want to try again to get a better overall impression.

Thanks Howard!

12 ounce bottle. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with an inch off-white head that sticks around a long time. There's also a lot of lacing. The brew smells mostly like citrusy hops (tropical fruit, mango), along with some light caramel malt. It tastes like citrusy (tropical fruit, citrus peel, mango, grapefruit) hops, bready malt, and a nice lingering bitter finish. Mouthfeel/body is light/medium, it's a bit slick and creamy with a good amount of carbonation. I think it's a good overall pale ale. I've had a few different brews from Flat 12 now, and I've liked all of them. Definitely worth picking up!
