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

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

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

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

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

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

8 oz. pour on tap at the brewery poured into their flute-like glass, unknown brewing/release date, drank over 30 minutes

A: 2/3 - golden-off yellow coloration; low clarity (cannot read through) with intense hop haze; tight white bubbles pouring off the bottom of the glass; initial frothy white head settles into a 1 finger head that persists throughout the drinking

S: 10/12 - moderate citrus and floral hop character - grapefruit, mango, lemograss and dandelions - with some biscuity bready malts and oats; no detectable alcohols; no flaws

T: 18/20 - taste profile immediately follows the nose but is subtle and gentle - this is a citrus delight with some mild pine; in the middle of the mouth, the citrus hop complexity continues with Centennial and Amarillo notes (less so Simcoe) and gentle oats, malts and alcohol; finishes dry and inviting

M: 5/5 - moderate-to-high carbonation; moderate hop oils that coat the tongue and instill a creaminess not typically found in this style; moderate alcohol presence

O: 9/10 - wow, this is a beautiful hop symphony that is one of the most balanced and inviting aromatic pale ales on the market; I could session this all night and still be a delight the following morning; highly recommended for all hop hands on deck! On my visit to the brewery on Sun., 3/23/14, the only beer that I had that I thought was better was the First Level NS IPA, but these beers are very different and this one is more balanced and delicate!

TOTAL - 44/50

Thanks to one of the finest BA's around, Retail1LO

A finely clouded, dark straw pour holds a finger of white foam fleetingly, ends with bubble islands and a nice ring.

Wonderful wafting aromas of orange and lemon zest, sweet grapefruit, neutral sweet, melon form a bouquet that is indescribably delicious and enticing.

All the flavors of the nose combine into a balanced whole that also features the lightest bit of herbal drying at the end. Stupid delicious, I wish I were a better reviewer and could let you read this and know just how fucking good this is.

Nicely low carb, easy drinking, light body but full of lasting flavors that make a superb finish.

Tired Hands, huh? In the words of no one in particular I shall give worthy advice: "Get yo ass some of this beer, y'all gone like it fo sho!" Highest recommendation.

On tap at Tired Hands. Pours a light yellow-straw color with a good head. Nice lacing. The nose is exceedingly complex and strong for a beer of this size with fantastic citrus rind, light pine, and hints of tropical fruit. Flavor has a malty dryness to accompany the hop bitterness. Flavor packs in fresh citrus peel along with a light dosing on pine needles and a faint earthy dankness, which must be the Columbus speaking. Body is light and crisp. Uber drinkable. I see many growlers of this in my future.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Arrives with a pale lemon color capped by a dense head of foam that leaves excellent lace patterns

Smell: CItrus and tropical fruit aromatics

Taste: The hops dominate the flavor profile from start to finish here, with the malt basically providing the backbone and nothing else; citrus and tropical fruit flavors build, though they never verge into overwhelming bitterness

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Really enjoyed the well-attenuated character of this beer; the hop profile was just how I like it and stepped up to the border of IPA territory but never crossed the line
