On tap at the Muddy Pig in St. Paul, MN. Served in a chalice glass.

Appearance: Color is a pale straw golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. About two fingers of off white head with decent retention. Leaves a lot of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A very hop forward aroma with lots of earthy, floral, and citrus hints. Big upfront hop presence with floral hints and earthy hints of grass and pine resin. Citrus hop hints of grapefruit, orange peel, tangerine, mango, pineapple, and lemon. Decent scent of malts in the background with hints of caramel, grains, biscuit, toast, cracker, and yeast. A pretty solid aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma, a juicy and nicely bitter hop forward taste with big earthy, citrus, and floral notes. Upfront floral and grassy hops along with some dank pine resin. Juicy citrus hop notes of orange peel, grapefruit, mango, tangerine, lemon zest, and pineapple. Bready malt background with notes of grains, biscuit, caramel, cracker, toast, and yeast. A solid fresh IPA taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Juicy and fairly oily. Smooth and drying.

Overall: A pretty nice fresh hop IPA. Very hop forward but moderately bodied and pretty clean and smooth.

Big thanks to Penguin3200 for the bottle. Bottled 9/18/2012.

Appearance: Pale straw with some slightly darker gold hints. Almost perfectly clear. Head it bright-white, chunky, and loose. Drops to a thin cap with big notches of chunky, fluffy lacing. Moderate retention on the tiny cap.

Smell: Lightly floral with some pine needle. Grapefruit flesh. A touch of tropical fruit. Pale bready malts. Mild spiciness in the background. Cracker like malt snap. Slightly earthy and herbal. Some grass. Nice orange zest in the back. Very delicate and mild.

Taste: Floral. Incredibly floral. Backed by an oily grapefruit and orange zest. Pithy bitterness builds over some delicate malts. Crisp, clean pale malts. Bready, crackers, and earthy. Mild herbal spiciness in the back. Bitterness lingers. Pure Centennial hops.

Mouthfeel: Lighter side of medium on the body. Carbonation is moderate, but lively. Incredibly drinkable with a lingering dryness.

Overall: Clean, fresh hops. Clean, fresh beer.

Crazy amounts of flavor packed in to a super easy drinking pale ale. If Centennial hops aren't your jam, avoid this. If they are, drink this now and get more as soon as possible.
