This Pale Ale reminds me of most of the hoppy ales you get at your local liquor store. The appearance is a thicker, brown/orange color. The smell is refreshing and hoppy, the taste is good, nothing exceptional but a great hoppy beer. The mouthfeel is smooth, refreshing, and finishes great. If you are looking for a good, hoppy beer this will fill the need.

This is truly a great beer. It poured with an incredibly fluffy white head that became cavernous as I started drinking. Heavy lacing all the way till the last sip. It pours a really nice amber color and smells of wonderful hops. Orange, grapefruit, and a lemon brightness is there as well as some earthier fruits, like melon. It tastes like a wonderful hop and fruit bomb. Lots of citrus and a fruity but clean finish. One of the better APAs I've enjoyed.

Picked a growler of this up at the taproom a few days ago.

Appearance: Clear, burnt-orange colour. Good lacing.

Smell: Nice hoppy, citrus smell.

Taste: Very fresh, hoppy flavour, with a bite at the end. Finishes very clean.

Overall, a very well-done Pale Ale.

grabbed at the brewery a week and a half ago.

poured cold from the growler a crisp, translucent straw gold to a sun king shaped pint with a snow white, finger sized, short lasting head

aroma of citrus-y hops and fresh yeasty bread.

sweet yeasty bread up front, lemon rind and citrus in the way back.

crisp, clean, medium bodied, subtle sweet, no bitter presence.

very enjoyable and refreshing on this super hot working in the yard day.

Poured a very nice mid-copper with great head and great lacing. Nice sweet and malty aroma with nice fruity and floral hop scents, without being very deep. Sweet malty flavor with fruity and pine hop finishes. A bit of hop roughness, but still a nice beer overall. On tap at Tomlinson Tap Room.
