Notes / Commercial Description:
Since Born Yesterday is bottled and shipped the very same day—probably the freshest Fresh Hop ale you'll get your paws on—the arrival date is kinda in the air 'til things get closer and nature says so. Kinda like a fresh lil' newborn, only this puppy is made from whole-cone, un-kilned Mosaic, Equinox, Citra, Simcoe and Amarillo hops from our farmer friends in Yakima, WA. It's borning soon. Wanna be the first to know when? You've gotta guess first …

Bottle borned on 10/16/17
L: Poured a beautiful bright and pale yellow orange.
S: Strong aroma of juicy fruity fresh hops with a touch of dankness, apricot and peach. Very good.
T: Hop candy in liquid form! Not too sweet, not too bitter. Very good.
F: Nice zesty zing of carbonation. Light to medium mouthfeel. Very good.
O: Pale Ale??? Come on, I wasn't "born yesterday" (ha ha), this thing has DIPA flavor running through it's veins, just a little thinner, lighter and milder, but not much. I've been writing the review as I sip and admire, then it happened, as I hoped it would... Born Yesterday hit the sweet spot in temperature; it's like everything comes together in agreement. The bitterness subsides and lets the hops dazzle your palate with their smooth and rich hoppy goodness. IF this is a Pale Ale, then it's the best drinking and most flavorful Pale I've ever had. Thanks to MBLWAFLTM for this gift!

12 oz bottle borned 10/16/17 poured into an IPA glass. A hazy golden orange with a two finger fluffy white head. Aroma is strong dank and citrus. The taste is right in line. Pine and some tangerine. Bitter finish. For as strong as the aroma is, there is a moderate amount of balance. The mouthfeel is medium light, carbonation is medium light as well. Slightly creamy. A well made pale ale.
