growler fill, poured into my curved pint glass.

A- a perfectly translucent light amber/orange, with a very fluffy off-white head. Great lacing down the glass.

S- a biscuity/english malt base, with some hops that are really quite nice. Notes of hemp, peach, and a restrained tangerine note.

T- Taste is pretty good. Certainly an English Pale as the malts are a little drier and the hops a little more restrained than the American interpretations. A nice Biscuity malt base, not too sweet, leads into a hop bitterness, but the notes of peach, hemp and tangerine I get a bit of on the nose, are really harder to pickup on. (but they are there)

M- light to medium at best, and very drinkable. A nice medium carbonation as well.

O- A well done pale. If they could get the hops to transition a bit more flavor, it would be epic. As it is, it's still pretty darn good. (876 characters)

Golden color, nice citrus aroma, some tropical fruit in the taste. This will be a great summertime "session" beer (113 characters)

Had on the handpump at the Bulls Head on Sep 24. While it looked fine in the pint taper glass -nice and gold with a generous head; the aroma was somewhat musty and I couldn't pick much else up. The taste was also musty like some other types of fermentables were used and I couldn't identify the hops which were somewhat muted. Mouthfeel was OK but not a very satisfying beer and unusual for this maker. (402 characters)

-Growler. 08.22.15. Consumed/reviewed 1 hour after pour.

A: Bready textured off white head is thin on the pour from the growler. Bubbly covering, light spacious CO2 rise is slow and lazy making its way to the top. Rustic tangerine orange coloring, good clarity.

S: The nose is sweet and fruity, tropical semi-dry pineapple and citrus. Fresh apple sauce, hints of citrus and pear juice. Smells like citra hops with a clean belgian yeast strain. Mangos, sweet orange, and apricot rounds things out here.

T: Flavor is fruity, lightly dry tropical hints as first impression. Filled with dry citrus-apple hopping, grapefruit, and, citrusy hops come alive mid-palate. Dry tropical orange-pineapple notes, papaya, and citrusy-peach add a tropical punch against a crisp pale malt backing.

M: Had a decent amount of carbonation, not particularly sharp, but faired much better then their others in terms of crispness. Mid body fullness, warming of piney-citrus afterglow on inner cheeks, dry hopping flowery presence off the tongue.

O: This is very crushable, and available in crowlers. Maybe just as bittering as thier libation, this is an easy drinkable, growler worthy beer, that was very well balanced with a good smack of hoppiness per style. This as well thier libation, an easy must try when in town. Citra hops are well represented here. (1,347 characters)

Pours translucent light amber with an off white head with beautiful lacing down the glass.
An aroma of English malt base with some hops with subtle hints of peach and tangerine. Taste is very clean and dry, slightly bitter with medium carbonation. Overall an excellent example of an English Pale Ale. (300 characters)
