Thanks to Sara and Craus for this one. Bottle code: 9/3/13D. Poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy yellow, with just a bit of an orange tint, with less than 1/4 inch of off-white head that had very low retention and very light lacing.

The aroma had some light malts upfront and underneath, then mostly citrus hops, with a bit of pine in the background. On the tongue, The was pretty much the same, a nice base malt, with citrus and pine hops making for a nicely balanced brew.

The medium body was good, very smooth and with a nicely dry finish. Drinkability was very good, the beer went down quickly and easily, and you could slide several down with no trouble. Overall, a pretty nice beer. Not really outstanding or memorable, but certainly enjoyable and worth a shot if you see it.

Picked up a 6 pack of bottles for $7.99

Poured from the brown bottle into a pub glass. About an inch of foamy white head forms up, receding slowly and leaving a thin cap with sticky full coverage lace.
The beer itself appears fairly light, golden transparent yellow, resembling a pils or somthing other then an apa. Lets just say the color is not doing anything for the beer.

Aroma is terrific. Plenty of fresh hops with an intense dank weed aroma. Bittering pineapple, grapefruit and leafy floral hops. A touch of green tea. Just a bit of buttered rolls too with a hint at sweetness.

Mouthfeel is slick with a full bodied feel and mild carbonation, making this ultra smooth.

Hops in flavor are not the same as what aroma put off.
Creating a balancing act on the pallet. a mild sweetness to start the becomed muted fruity hops that turn to a more wet cardboard flavor of hops. Malt shines through with a buttery bready yeast flavor. Hops are much more herbal in taste. A mild green tea flavor with herbal leaf.

A decent brew, but I'm not a fan of the color and flavor seemed to lack a bit. What was great in aroma was not as noticeable in taste. Still a good beer, but I had higher hopes.

An interesting beer...not sure what to call it
Poured into a tulip

Medium amber color with small amount of lacing

No dominant aroma, a little piney and fresh hops

A nice sharp clean bitterness and maybe a biscuit-y bit.

Overall pleasant, clean mouthfeel and little aftertaste make it very drinkable.

Dated 10/18/12A

A - Pours a light, slightly hazy orange with a large near-white head that lasts forever and leaves tons of lacing.

S - Very subtle all-around. Subtle malts and a tiny bit of hops.

T - Very similar to the nose. Subtle pale malts and a hint of hops.

D - Tons of carbonation and a lighter body.

O - A very pale ale with a hint of hops.

Bottle (2012)

Thanks for opening this with me, Josh!

Hazed golden in color with a moderately sized off-white head that leaves lines of lacing down the glass.

Some citrus, bread, and earth in the aroma. Simple enough, and nice.

The flavor is similar to the aroma, with a fairly high level of bitterness for the style, bread, earth, and citrus combining for a nice enough pale.

Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation.

Above average.

Poured from 12. Oz bottle into nonic pint glass
BBD 10/2/13
A - light amber color with small head

S - citrusy, resiny hop aroma balanced by a bready malt smell. Fairly nice and balanced

T - lots of flavoring hops in the taste but, again, not overpowering. A little spicy hop flavor as well. A little saltine like flavor with the malt side and some caramel malts slide down the back end.

M - medium mouthfeel, moderate carbonation.

O - not a bad beer at all but nothing worthwhile as well. A good sipper for a couple
