Poured ontap in a shaker pint, the beer is a pale, hazy, copper coloring with a sparse, filmy, white head. Aromas of tart grapefruit and lime forward, subtle berry fruit, toasted grains, and subtle funk. Flavors are more of the farmhouse funk and spice forward, with notes of sage, clove, evergreen, allspice, and subtle souir funk, with a resinous and piney hops character, and a toasted backbone. Light, crisp, effervesced body with an herbal and medicinal aftertaste. The finish is spiced and funky linger, with a dry, effervesced feel. Interesting.

a great can of beer here, blue collar still, a strong pint, but a darn well refined one, and this is frankly way better than any other beer i have had from these guys in recent memory. its frothing over white fluff on top of a rich looking brassy clear base. the nose is juicy and tropical, pineapple juice i smell, and maybe galaxy as a principal varietal, although its hard to tell. the flavor doesnt quite pop on the hops like the aroma does, but its equally delicious. when i drink it fast, it looses its uniqueness a little, but when i set it down for a minute or two and smell and taste it again, it sort of blows me away. fuller bodied from the grain, but not overly flavorful on the malt side. pale two row and some light crystal probably is all. i like its clean cold nature, and i am glad they packaged something different finally, even if it was rather limited. great use of the hops, i would love confirmation on what kind they are. this is great pale ale, pushing ipa on the hop scale, and appropriately big for winter.

A: 2014 vintage. Yellow-gold; clear (previously [pre-2014] unfiltered). Decent head.

Aroma: fruity with pineapple and tropical fruits. Also a touch yeasty and floral.

T: mild floral hops up front, lightly-toasted malts; hints of caramel and tropical fruits. Mild for an IPA.

M: Medium-light body; crisp feel

O: well-balanced, but don't expect normal US (or OB) IPA hoppiness.
