Served on tap in a pint glass

Appearance – Served an amber colored brew with a one finger pure white fluffy head. The head fades fast to a thin film leaving a very light level of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is very light overall, but consists of some light bready smells as well as aromas of lighter fruits (apple, pear and orange) and citrus hop aromas of a more grapefruit and lemon variety.

Taste – The taste begins with a bready and biscuit taste with an upfront showing of some citrus hop tastes of a grapefruit nature. As the flavors advance a light sweetness of brown sugar and honey comes to the tongue as well as a small amount of an orange and pear fruit taste. The brew by no means takes on a sweet taste at this point however, as some flavors of a more grassy and herbal hop as well as an intensification of the grapefruit hop come to the tongue. In the end one is left with a somewhat off slightly sweet and rather citrus bitter hopped bready taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the thinner side with a carbonation level that is quite high with tons of fizzy carbonation bubbles. The feel is quite appropriate for the more session style of the brew and make it quite easy to drink.

Overall – An alright APA, although there is something a bit off at the end of the taste with the combination of the bitter grapefruit hop and light honey and brown sugar sweetness, with the two combining in a not so harmonious fashion.

Can from Tipples. Best before 9/9/14, poured 7/31/14. Pours clear golden with a big fluffy white head. Aroma of nice floral hops, some lemon peel, a bit of soapy hop notes, and mild malt in the background. Flavor is nice bitterness up front, some grassy hops, hay, hint of citrus peel, light bready sweetness, and a slightly dirty flavor on the finish. This one is light and crisp with plus carbonation. The malts are waaay in the background. Other than the slightly weird finish on this--and it's not all that prominent--this was very nice. Maybe a bit more malt sweetness would be nice, but the. It wouldn't be Extra pale I guess. I don't get the low ratings here. Good beer that I could drink all day.

Excellent appearance with a huge, off white, thick, very durable head, lots of lace, and a clear, dark gold color. Aroma is simply fresh hops and a bit of malt. Flavor is dominated by the fresh hop, some sweet malt to balance, perhaps a bit too much carbonic tang. Body is decent; above average, but just as it does seem a tad thin. Not a bad drinking beer.

12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a medium straw color with decent clarity. The head is a four finger white color with lowish retention for the ABV. The center of the head retains itself more thoroughly than the edges. Lots of patchy lacing, too.

S: There's the typical grapefruit aroma expected from Cascade hops, along with some lemony esters. As it sits in the glass, the crackery pilsner malt shines through slightly. Not an assertive aroma, but it's likable enough.

T: The taste is very simple, but the few dimensions it features are pulled off well. Initial lemon and grapefruit flavors, before being finished off by lightly sweet maltiness. A very good blonde ale, though hardly extreme or mindblowing.

M: It could be a little less watery in general, but this is so easy to drink. Hell, it's practically a chugger. The light body and dry finish only help the drinkability.

O: Who needs Bud Light when you have this? This isn't designed to be a Zombie Dust wannabe, it's designed to be drank by the six pack, or with a good meal. Very enjoyable as long as you don't expect explosive flavor.

A: Pours a clear gold with a creamy, lingering white mousse.

S: Caramel, crackers, biscuits, and minerals mingle with grass, herbs, lemon, and pine on the nose.

T: Notes of pine, cedar, lemon, lime, grass, and herbs come to the fore on the entry, but are soon balanced by traces of caramel, biscuit, cream, crackers, and minerals. The finish is clipped and mildly bitter with pine and lemon notes underscored by minerals, biscuits, and crackers.

M: Medium-bodied and fairly dry for the style. Carbonation is very active and crisp. This ale is very easy to drink and would make a solid session beer.

O: The best thing I can say about this ale is that it is very solid. It's not particularly adventurous and it definitely doesn't do anything surprising or unexpected, but taken purely as a hoppy session ale, one could do far, far worse.

Strong aroma is quite hoppy and piney, with a hint of citrus, more like an IPA than a "regular" pale ale. It pours a typical but still appealing clear amber with a decent off-white head that leaves some good lacing. Flavor is quite hoppy with a malty undertone and hints of caramel and sour citrus. Texture is smooth and somewhat fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle. You can just about taste the wilderness.

Appearance – Light, slightly opaque, golden color

Smell – Fresh, clean hops, with some lemon hints.

Taste – Very refreshing. Piney, citrusy hops hit you well for only being 29 IBU. Got some sour (in a good way), lemony flavors from the hops. Slight malt sweetness. Had a clean, dry finish.

Overall – I was very surprised this beer got only an 80 rating. This would make for a great session beer. I could tip back quite a few of these in the summertime. I thought this had great hop flavor, and sour/sweetness balance for only having a 4% abv. Would've guessed a higher abv on this one. Would definitely have again.
