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

12 oz bottle was poured into a tumbler.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a small layer. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Floral, citrus, lemon, grassy, pilsner, and pale malts.

Taste : I get some booze and tingly bitterness on the palate.

Mouthfeel: A little chewy, tingly, light to medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little booze.

Overall: Not too shabby out of a bottle, but better on draft. Good to see it in a bottle when I can't get it on draft.

A - For a double IPA it's a little light. Not hazy, golden orange as expected, but more on the lighter, yellowish side. Poured to a one finger, white head.

S - Lemon, citrus, and hoppy. Very nice.

T - Acidic lemon and hops are very present.

M - Medium. Good carbonation.

O - One of my favorite Beer Works offerings. A very solid DIPA. Glad they put this in bottles.

3.66/5  rDev -9.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: 1/4 inch head, gold in color, high carbonation, clear

Smell: citrus hops

Taste: apricot, tangerine, grass, and a bunch of pale malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with slight bitterness towards the end, dryness at the end, light bodied with moderate-high carbonation

Overall: A good citrusy pale ale. The alcohol is very well hidden here. One I would sip on a hot day.

Note: This is a review of Beer Works Pale^2, the newest release in their 4pk overtime series. If this is not the same beer, then mea culpa.

12oz bottle poured into a globe.

A: Golden/amber color with a good amount of chill haze that begins to clear as the beer warms. Fluffy and creamy looking bone white head. Retention is very good. Lacing forms thin rings that plaster themselves to the glass.

S: Pithy and floral hop aromas, notes of pulpy tropical fruits such as mango, lemon, and white grapefruit. More playful scents of passion fruit, kiwi, and honeydew melon begin to emerge. half baked and doughy yeast character. Doughy and honeyed malt base.

T: Sugary and tropical hop flavors up front. White grapefruit with sugar, lemon peel, mango, honeydew melon. Raw doughy yeast blends into the doughy and honeyed malt backbone. Another dose of bitter, leafy hops come to the foreground. Sweet sticky bud. Touch of alcohol toward the end. Honeyed malt and leafy, bitter hops linger on the finish.

M: Medium bodied. Doughy and creamy texture with a chewy feel. Carbonation scrubs lightly. Gritty hop astringency, slight spike of alcohol warmth.

O: Yet another example of citra hops used the right way (I'm beginning to think there might not be a wrong way). That tropical and sugary yet leafy and bitter citra hop dichotomy takes center stage, but is supported well by the raw and homemade yeast character and some doughy malt flavor. In my mind it draws parallels to Southern tier Live and maybe even some Treehouse offerings in that regard. This is easily the best beer to emerge from the Overtime series so far, but it's been a sleeper in the market. Don't pass it up.
