Growler from CWBlues, into a couple tulips.
Filtered redder orange, with a moderate white head. Good lacing and light retention. Nose of apricot, peach, nectarine, some butter and caramel. A bit of bread. Taste has apricot, peach, and fruity hops. Light tropical character with some bread and pale malt on the back end. Drying with a bit of bitterness. Light feel and low carbonation, although that's probably attributable to the growler. A tasty pale with a nice hop profile, splitting a growler was just about enough for me.

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!

Bottle opened and no explosion! Enjoyed from my BT batch 001 willie becher. Brew poured a foggy sienna orange with a thin fizzy head that had staying power from the carb that steadily swam to the surface. Nose is a malt bomb so this must be on the old side since everyone talks about how hoppy the beer is. The bottle has 111414 stamped on it, not sure what that means, but this is no hop bomb. Flavor is also malty with bitterness on the finish. Not a big fan of this one, would love to check it out fresher though to give it a fair shake. Not a drain pour but if this is what this beer is supposed to be like then it is not something I would seek out again, but I would definitely give it another shot considering the nice reviews.
