Notes: This well known beer is brewed with an abundance of Maris Otter Malt as well as five different hops including Galaxy Hops from Australia! Presenting itself as a 4.5% Session ALE, this hoppy delight is one crowd pleaser!

On tap at Terrapin Brewery. Poured into a Terrapin pint glass. 

Pours translucent gold with a finger pale head. A little lacing. 

Smells sweet with a hint of hops. 

Tastes dry and bready with a mild hop flavor. Long moderate bitter aftertaste. 

Light bodied with medium carbonation. 

Overall this isn't for me. The more I drank, the more I appreciated it but I'll stick to thier Hopsecutioner and other "bigger" brews. Not bad at all but I prefer a little more beer with my beer.

Poured into a Florida Beer Company tapered pint. Label says seasonal 2012.

A- Pours a light amber color with a 3/4 inch white head that retains well before becoming an 1/8 inch head. Very resilient ring of lacing that sticks to the glass a long time.

S- Piney, grassy hop nose with not much malt underneath. Smells fresh and floral.

T- The malt backbone comes through much better in the taste with some grainy cracker-like flavor. Mild bitterness from the hops along with a light amount of citrus. Overall a very decent balance.

M- Somewhat prickly from the hops with medium carbonation.

O- A very solid pale ale that's more hop forward.

Smell: Citrus hops, medium malt, nice heavy hops

Taste: Decent citrus hops, medium roasted malts, nice dark bitter profile.

Mouthfeel: Nice carbonation with light to medium thickness.

Overall: Nice session ale, hoppy, but not overpowering.
