(Served in a tulip glass)
Batch 43
A- This beer pours a deep orange body with a rocky light beige head that takes up half the glass. It sticks to the class in sheets and is supported by a tiny carbonation.

S- The plastic note turns into a new sneaker hint and is taken over by a slight yeasty green hop aroma that finishes with a bit of a caramel malt hint popping through.

T- The spicy hops note leads to a creamy pale malt flavor that changes to a green pungent hop finish. There is some woody hop character to the finish with a cardamom quality to the hops as it opens.

M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a tight little fizz in the finish.

O- This is a nice easy sipping pale ale with a spicy pungent hop flavor that takes on an odd plastic smell. This just got put on the shelves at the local Binny’s and I didn’t realize it was from batch 43 until I cracked it open. I hope to find a fresher sample and re review.

Poured from 22oz bomber into tulip glass. Dark golden color, a bit cloudy with nice two finger head. Leaves alot of lacing around glass.

Aroma pungent pine, resin and citrus rind with some slight sweet malt overtones.

Taste more muted than the aroma. A quick burst of intense hops and clean finish with very little malt overtones. Very creamy that backs off the bitterness but not too sweet, real balanced.

Medium bodied beer, good carbonation with clean finish. Very drinkable like a a pale ale so was surprised by the ABV on the bottle.

An excellent example. Probably my second favorite Pale Ale after 3F Zombie Dust. Another winner in my back yard. I wish the ABV was lower, like 5-6%:).
