On tap at the brewpub on 7/25/12 served in an 8oz tulip.

Pour: a great hazy golden yellow with a finger of white fluffy head.

Smell: Wonder juicy grapefruit, with some lemon zest and pne.

Taste: Follows the nose with juicy grapefruit and lemon citrus. Bready malt balances. Finishes with a clean pine bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Crisp and refreshing. Carbonation gives it an almost velvety mouthfeel.

Overall: Wow, what a start to my Tired Hands experience. This pale ale tussles with the giants, and is up there with Edward in my opinion. Definitely get this if you can!

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.
