A- Moderately clean golden pale with a robust bone white head of about 2-3 fingers. Soapy lacing that clings well to the glass. 4

S- Intense grapefruit and citrus notes. Slight resin and pine notes on the back end. Sweet malt base. 4

T/M- Follows nose very well. Big grapefruit again. Cringe worthy bitterness. Big flavor for 5%. Finishes crisp and dry. Hints of pine and floral character. 4

O- I could drink this all day. Fantastic pale ale. Lots of bitterness.

Pounder can picked up as an extra in a trade with Pmoney over on BA... Nice trade Patrick, thanks for the cool extra. Poured into my standard tulip... 2 finger rises up and sticks around for a while leaving good lace as it drops... fairly clear golden brew. Aromas is citrus and floral hops... pretty clean. Bitterness up front on the palate reminds me of Dandelion brews I have had in the past... hop flavors trail off a little quickly, doesn’t really strike me as "West Coast".. Very drinkable. Light body with good carbonation.

Got some of this in a trade for Pseudo Sue. Poured with a small head. Really nice looking cloudy straw, slightly orange body. Fresh citrus aroma. Some earthy smell too. Taste is awesome. Very bitter, but still nice and juicy. Like eating fresh grapefruit.
