While not quite in the same category with beers like zombie dust, bone-a-fide and RR Hill/Row, this is still a very tasty, hop driven pale ale. The low alcohol makes for a very easy to drink (in mass quantities) pale ale as well.

poured from a growler that was filled earlier today.

Clear, brassy, golden with a thin, foamy white head.

Light citrus and pine notes with a crackery malt backbone. Light bodied, medium carbonation.

Well done pale ale. A bit thin bodied at times, but a tasty flavor profile regardless.

Huge hop aromas, sweet bright citrus.
Very clear and light bodied
This is my favorite of Barley Brown's two current APA's the other being Tumble Off. I always seek it out when it's pouring around town

Growler from Uptown Market.

Pouring a burnished copper with a dense, off white head with decent retention and lacing, this looks solid. The nose is pungently hoppy with a pronounced grapefruit pith, pine and plenty of citrus. Mandarin, citrons, mildly tropical with hints of mango and papaya. Just a touch of burnt sugar is present on the nose. Awesome.

The palate opens with a beautiful hop character, bright, pungent and refreshing with a pleasing, resiny bitterness with gobs of fruit as a counterpoint. Tangerine, grapefruit, green grapes, mango, citrons... This really is a fruit riot. The mid palate has a hint of sweetness that only amplifies the juicy palate. Drying on the finish with a resiny bitterness, this beer is light in body, moderately carbonated and is just a treat. A hint of a chalky, mineral like character is also present on the finish. Awesome. This new-to-me brewpub is really impressing me.
