On tap at 16 tons the other day.

The beer pours a golden amber color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is very attractive on this bad boy, show casing an unusual blend of light skunky weed, light sweet malt, light pine and dry citrus. I say unusual, because this level of hoppy bitterness is something I usually only find in a really good IPA. The flavor profile replicates the nose, but might be even better. The beer is light, very well balanced, with a great hoppy bite on the crisp, dry finish. Mouthfeel is fairly light, but the beer delivers plenty of flavor, and so this beer is incredibly drinkable. The finish is long, crisp, bitter and satisfying.

How good is this pale ale? If I had to choose between this and zombie dust, I'm not entirely sure I would take the zombie dust. This is just excellent stuff.

On tap at EB Pizza on 6.18.13

A - Served a pale hazy light orange with a thin off-white head in a pFriem pint glass.

S - Tropical Mosaic hops and not much else. Maybe a touch of citrus.

T - Again tons of tropical fruits. Papaya, mango, yum.

D - Good carbonation with a lighter body an no bitterness.

O - This was the mosaic single hop. Not sure if there are other versions but this one is good.
