32oz growler filled 2 days ago. Thanks John. Poured into a brandy glass today, 5/2/2014.

A- Hazy straw yellow body much like lemonade. Very effervescent two finger white head that quickly drops into a thick film that retains quite well, lacing abounds.

S- Bready sweet, yeasty (in a Belgian style), a bit of tropical fruit, some floral notes.

F- Bread, caramel and oats mixed in with yeasty spice; citrus hops complement this sweetness. Finish is more floral than citrusy. It almost has a distinct Belgian type flavour which is kind of odd.

M- Medium bodied, not particularly bitter and actually very drinkable. The finish is dry, refreshing but a bit odd with that mix of the yeast and malt.

O- A fairly solid pale ale that is quite different than the others, but didn't impress too much. Good for a year-round, but the finish is kind of odd. The best description I can come up with is: American-hopped Belgian-style pale ale due to the yeast.

Not feeling it with this brew, extremely cloudy and a mess to say the least. Staff at the pub should not be pouring it. Milkshake beers are not a trend or acceptable with modern styles... No excuses.

32 oz growler poured into a pub-style pint glass.

Extra cloudy straw-yellow with a 1/2 finger of loose white head that dissipates quickly.

Grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, candy sugar, and dank pine.

Grapefruit juice, sugar-coated tangerine, and pineapple juice. Bready backbone with nuances of candy sugar. Finishes with pine sap and dank greenery.

Medium-light bodied, silky, smooth, and juicy.

Juicy as all Hell with a very low bitterness. I could drink these all day long. Superb Pale Ale.

Bros are idiots for giving this a 64. This is the greatest Pale Ale I've ever tasted.

Tall white head that fades to a fizz on top, lots of lacing. VERY pale body - looks like a light beer.
Nice clean citrus hop aroma, but fades to be pretty faint given time. Taste is overwhelmed by sharp acidity with some messy hops at the back end, lingering dry and bitter. The acidity is felt more than the carbonation, leaving it somewhat astringent.
Disappointing overall. Tastes and feels like an extra-hopped light beer. I guess at 4.8% it sort of is one, but I still wouldn't choose it over any readily available pale ales.

Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Hoppy aroma. Grapefruit coloured and lacey. A little yeast, surprisingly. A big smooth mouthfeel. Citrus,fruity, complex and subtle tastes, a good pale. I would like to have a six pack in my fridge. Perhaps the best on tap tonight.
