Canned 4-16-13, so pretty fresh.
A--Light copper, translucent, weak head. Pedestrian.
S--Outstanding aroma of earthy Columbus hops and malt, seems aggressive and complex.
T--Very good but not as complex and interesting as aroma. Fans of balance may love this, the finish is impressive, and the bitter-sweet combo is pretty unique. Ultimately, however, it is not only too sweet, but the bitter and sweet elements combine like a simplistic dichotomy rather than coming together in an interesting way that brings me back for more.
As a fan of hop-forward brews, I prefer Dale's Pale Ale.
Serving type: can

Born on date : 4/24/14 - Enjoyed 7/27/14
A: Honey colored with 1 finger of white head. The head settles relatively quickly. The can includes a very obvious, and readable, born on date on the bottom!
S: Piney and floral. There are mild hints of citrus. As it warmed I got more grassy smells.
T: Sweet on the front of the tongue. The finish is piney and grassy with just a hint of bitter.
M: Smooth and easy to drink. The carbonation is low.
O: Great overall beer. All of the parts play well together. Only a slight hint of the 8% ABV. This beer is complex and has lots of flavors going on. Also the bitterness is kept in check - which I like.
Serving type: can
