Pours a hazy orange-ish to amber color, with an off white head. In the aroma, sweet pine hops. In the taste, pine hops and a nice balanced malt. A hop bite and medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry pine hop in the aftertaste. Nice pine hop in a pale and quite enjoyable.

Pours a copperish color with a nice one finger head which gives way to some lacing. The smell is of citrus hops with a sweetness present. The taste is of sweet malt with some citrus and floral hops. The mouthfeel is mediurm bodied. The overall drinkability is good, nice flavor and aroma, but could be a little stronger.

Purchased a growler at the brewpub.

A- Pours a cloudy light amber color with a decent white head.

S- Hoppy and flowery, a bit of yeastiness comes through.

T- Nice and hoppy, citrusy, the beer tasted as if it could use another week or so to age.

M- Smooth, medium bodied.

D- If it had been aged another week or ten days, I think this would be a very good beer.

Had at Piper's Pub, Pittsburgh, PA from their cask system.

Pours a nice mid-copper color with very excellent head and nice lacing. Nice scent, clean with good citrus hoppy aromas, although the scent wasn't as deep as I like. Wonderful taste, a nice crisp pale ale with a great American hop bite, which lingers on the tongue. Goes down great, very smooth, typical of a cask ale. A very good beer made even better for being on cask.

Growler -> Imperial Pint
5.5 abv

Pours a dark slightly cloudy orange amber with a generous head. Thin sheets of lace. Medium carbonation.

Nose: Citrus hops with some sweet malt tones.

Taste: Starts off with a quick burst of hops which are quelled by a sweet caramel malt. A glorious lasting bitter aftertaste is the highlight of this beer. More bitter than most pale ales i've come across, very similiar to the paleo ipa in the bitterness category.

Mouth: The mouthfeel is medium and right on the style.

A very drinkable pale ale. The nice bitterness is a real treat which some may not find suitable, but i think is just great!! Session this one just for fun.
