From the 650 ml. bottle with a tracking number of 14300001. This was released to the public on May 13, 2014 and it is the day I am also sampling it.

The pour is a handsome looking copper-amber color with a modest off-white beige head. Lacing.

The floral hops and toasted biscuit penetrate the nose beautifully and balanced. A bit of caramel but the floral and citrus hop notes are very evident in the APA.

The body is smooth, creamy, and about medium.

The taste begins with a toasted biscuit malt character but the citrus hops quickly erupt but never overpower. Modest and crisp bitterness at the finish. Gets hoppier as it warms.

Poured into a goblet. Color was a medium amber with a nice creamy thick head. Plenty of carbonation rose from the bottom. Aroma was a sweet floral hoppy smell, not overpoweringly so. Slight caramel aroma. Slightly hoppy piney flavor, with a bit of citrus. Small hint of malt poked through. Fairly well balanced. Coated nicely, plenty of tongue tingle as well. Overall a strong beer.

Bottle from Bert's
Pours a fairly clear deep golden color with a huge long lasting frothy white head. Aromas of caramel, bread, resin, and earthy pine with a touch of citrus. The flavor is bready with a touch of caramel and toffee with plenty of earthy piney hop flavor to balance. Light level of hop bitterness. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation. Flavorful easy drinking pale ale, I quite enjoyed it.

22 oz. bomber purchased from the brewery.

The beer leaps out of the bottle in a foamy cascade. It poured with a half-glass full of head that died down slowly into an orange haze.

Moderate scent of citrusy orange peel mirrored in taste. Light-bodied pale ale that has a biscuity malt character and a pronounced Cascade hop flavor. Well-balanced overall.

The over-carbonation definitely detracts from enjoyment of this beer. When I had it at the brewery, it had medium carbonation and the aromas and flavors popped out.

I will give it another try in the hopes that this was just an off bottle.

Poured into a 13 oz tulip glass, not sure of the bottle date. Pours a light amber, with a one inch sticky white head that leaves loads of lace.

Smell is tangerine, caramel, pine, mango, and some grapefruit.

Taste follows perfectly, very tropical, with some malt and biscuit with a little grapefruit finish.

Body is close to medium, nice light carbonation, not dry, and very drinkable, but drinks larger than its abv says.

Overall another solid brew made in my state by a tiny brewery.
