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.

32oz growler poured into Spiegelau tulip.

A: Pours a hazy yellow-orange with about 2 fingers of creamy, off-white head.

S: Tart lemon, grapefruit, pineapple, and mango.

T: Tart lemon up front, followed by mango, pineapple, grass, and a bit of maltiness. Pungent and mildly bitter.

M: Slick med-light body with light carbonation. Refreshing.

O: This is a very good APA, definitely sessionable. The up front tartness was different, but pleasant. A total tropical hop-bomb as well.

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
