On tap at the source. Pours a standard looking pale ale, golden in color, soft 3/5" white head on it. Good clarity running through it, plenty of carbonation evident just from looking at it.

Aroma, hits the simcoe without any interruptions or distractions. Is this 100% simcoe? Wouldn't doubt you if you said it was, thats what the aroma is all over this beer.

Taste, easy drinking, high hopes, strong, but not overly extreme bitterness that washes away in the mouthfeel quickly. Mild grain bill. Stays out of the way, dry, light. Its plenty herbal and zesty, there's so much Simcoe all over this. Far from complex, its a very drinkable, very hoppy pale ale.

Its not going to bump pte, blind pig, row 2, hopfather from their upper echelon of awesome products, but this is certainly better than happy hops or seagal select. A good lighter yet still hoppy option.

On tap at the RR Brewpub.

A: golden amber; excellent clarityr. Somewhat weak head still leaves some lacing.

Aroma: mild for style -- more like an APA; fruity and floral with hints of herbs and faint spices. Some light malts evident.

Flavor: some light malts and a very nice mix of hops. Excellent lingering aftertaste. Clean.

FeeL; smooth; light body and light for style; good medium carbonation.

O: excellent and I preferred this to the high rated Blind Pig that preceded it: a matter of perference in hop loads.
