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

On tap at Tired Hands

A- pours a hazy golden-.yellow color with a small creamy white head that reduces, leaving good lace behind.

S- nice mix of fruity hop aromas; pineapple, mango, guava, grapefruit and fresh cut grass

T- sweet and fruity hops give flavors of pineapple and mango with a hint of orange. Toasted malt kicks in to add good balance and drinkability. Slightly sweet on the finish with an emphasis on sweet guava fruit

M- medium body with moderate prickly carbonation produces a creamy mouthfeel and a smooth finish, very drinkable

O - super drinkable pale ale , with nice fruity hop notes

Tap at Tired Hands. From notes.

A - Poured cloudy yellowy/golden with a finger of white head. Film retention, good lace rings.

S - Zippy citrus, grass, lemon.

T - Oh ya, very pleasant mild malt and a nice complex hop profile of zippy lemon, grapefruit, and mango. Tasty.

M - Good carbonation, light to medium body, not that bitter.

O/D - Seemed fairly sessionable. Very nice and tasty with a great combo of hops. Enjoyed it.
