Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a clear ruby color with a small white head. The aroma is mostly hops with a bit of lemon tossed in. Nice flavor.

355ml can.
L: Amber, hazy, thin head, lots of lacing.
S: Earthy, old grass, compost.
T: Stewed tea, woody, earthy, dank, zero lemon notes, mouth-puckering bitterness.
F: Light body, hint of carbonation, very dry.
O: Lots of tea-like earthiness...but not my cup of tea.

Depp amber colour. Nice fruity aroma, lemon, orange. Quite bitter, earthy, hoppy taste. Gentle finish.

Can poured into Spiegelau IPA glass.

A well made pale ale. Smells lovely and tastes.........like most other American pale ales. Very drinkable and perfectly pleasant but I’m unable to apply any superlatives to this one. Enjoyable but in no way memorable. Cheers!

Absolutely solid, crisp, refreshing, flavorful, delightful, just-right malt with hearty hop, go-to, keep-em-comin', staple brew. For bonus points, great policy giving back to help preserve and protect the watershed that provides the excellent water to make this brew.
