From a growler I had filled a few hours ago at Peg's Cantina.

A very pale straw in color with a nice super-white head.

Fantastic hop aroma of tropical fruit with a hint of herbs and grass.

The tropical aromas carry over to the taste, which is big on flavors of pineapple, guava and more. Being under 5 percent alcohol, the malt flavors are muted, but far from invisible. I imagine the hop aromas and flavors would fade very quickly; fortunately, drinking beer from the source eliminates the danger of stale brew.

Body isn't watery.

Cycle Brewing's description is accurate: This is a session pale ale that's also a hop bomb. A nice diversion from beers with 7+ percent alcohol.

On tap at Peg’s brewpub. Cycle brewing series. Bitter, big IBU taste, from big citra? But always hard to tell the hops. Grapefruit, lemon, a little astringent. Cloudy grapefruit colour. Hoppy aroma.Very decent pale, outside of the acid. Sutably carbonated.

32 oz. crowler poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Dull hazy orange body. Medium white head. Nice lacing and surface wisping.

Smell - Has that New Zealand hop combination of herbal tones and tropical fruit. A little grainy.

Taste - The hop flavor splits into two parts. Delicate tropical fruit flavor right up front. Toasty malt right behind it before the herbal flavors kick in. Very mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel - Light and drinkable. Well carbonated.

Overall - Unique pale ale. I wouldn't call it a hop bomb, as it is advertised, but it has a very nice hop profile.
