On tap at Mac's Northern Steamship Brewbar

A: Hazy golden color with one inch white unstable looking head

S: Smells pretty strongly of hops, mix between west coast frutiness and two hearted spicy/floral hop aroma. Apparently hopped with first harvest cascades. Left dainty lacing down the glass.

T: Very bitter and unbalanced at first but the malt came out a bit as the beer warmed. Flavor was a bit thin

M: Medium body with medium carbonation and a lingering finish.

D: Not a bad go at the american pale ale style, not as balanced and therefore drinkable as some of my favorites, but wasn't hard to finish.

It's hard for me not to wax nostalgic about this beer. It was one of my "a-ha" beers that first showed me what beer could be. That said, I have a clear and unabashed bias towards Brewjolais. Furthermore, I drank it years ago when my palate was not as accustomed to flavorful beer.

A: Amber with a light head that dissipated quickly. Moderate lacing down the glass.

S: Beautiful grapefruit and citrus, simply delicious fresh-hop character.

T: Same as the smell, hoppy, citrus, grapefruit, lightly malty and delicious.

M: Couldn't tell ya.

O: This beer changes from year to year, as they use the first harvest of the hops to brew it. When I had it, in 2008, it was simply outstanding.
