“750 cc from Whole foods Plymouth. Pours translucent medium coppery with off-white head and a lot of carbonation streams. Nose is malty, with hops, some funk, yeast, and maibocky fruity wafts. Tastes caramel malty, with notes of hops, pine, funky yeast, and fruit. Finishes like a maibock/bier de mars hybrid.” -- by DocLock

“On tap at the brewery. Pour is hazy golden orange with a big white head and great lacing. Juicy fruits, orange peel, some vanilla, tarragon, light biscuit, some cherry pit, and graham crackers in the aroma. Taste is tart lemons and oranges, light lacto, a hint of grass, tangy, white pepper, and spice with a semi-tart finish. Medium body with crisp carbonation. Super refreshing. Another nice Kombucha blend.” -- by Steve_0

“on tap at green dragon. just had a great poetry reading and went here with Caey. i didn’t take notes. I was talking a lot, a crazy beer, bulges out in places but stays balanced--a little sweet, lacohol, belgian tang. 60 IBUs on a Belgian is serious, northwest belgium. smooth and light, track this down and try it. ” -- by raphael

“A lot of breweries use wet hops in IPAs, but you don’t tend to see them in pale ales that often. That makes The Beer Diviner Fresh Hops Pale Ale rather unique in a way. And while it certainly is an enjoyable beer, the fact remains it’s a familiar palette of Centennial and Cascade hops – only more dank than you’re used to.

I poured a 16oz growler into a tulip glass. It cost $5 ($0.31 per ounce).

Appearance: Dark orange color over a translucent body. Pours to a small, white, soapy head which retains and laces fairly well.

Smell: Hop-forward nose of orange and tea notes. Mild overall.

Taste: For a pale ale, there’s a lot of hop presence in this beer. Right away I get strong orange flavors, though sweet, such as orange sherbet or orange juice concentrate. Some more earthy/piney notes towards the middle and distinct tea flavor on the back end (Centennial always has a black tea flavor). Note that I said hop flavor and not bitterness. I’m sure the IBUs on The Beer Diviner Fresh Hops Pale Ale are pretty high for a pale ale, the fact remains it’s not an especially bitter beer. I would like to see more malt presence here, though. It’s a strong foundation for sure, but isn’t making for much distinct characteristics. Mild notes of honey, and a general sweetness, which is fine. The hops do linger in the aftertaste, leaving a dank and astringent flavor. This is enjoyable.

Drinkability: At 7% ABV, I was expecting to have to brace myself as I started on The Beer Diviner Fresh Hops Pale Ale. The body is surprisingly light for the weight, though. The mouthfeel is a bit thin, but with a smooth texture and easy finish. There’s a lingering aftertaste of resin and herbs, but it’s easily tolerable. ” -- by Chad9976

“On Tap at Bells 9/6/14. Pours darkish, bourbony nose. Supposedly a barrel aged quince infused Wheat love. The wheat love is obvious in the background, but the sweetness takes over slightly and kind of masks any real solid notes that are hiding. Pretty good overall.” -- by coyotehunter

“On tap at Bells 9/13/14. Very bourbony aroma, no head, pours dark brownish red. Flavor is bourbon up front, figs and dark fruits, light citrus. Very sweet and on the edge of too sweet. Good twist on a very good barleywine, yet I prefer the original.” -- by coyotehunter

“Tap at the brewpub. Tulip filled with black and a puffy 3 finger dark tan head. Aroma is very dark; rather sweet chocolate, and identifiable maple. Full bodied, or nearly. Flavor is rather earthy chocolate with some maple. All backed by strong coffee and some dark, treacly malt. Arguably complex.Pretty tasty stuff.” -- by bhensonb

“Pours a clear, dark golden with a short white head. Big coffee nose. The hop character interacts with the coffee to yield a chili pepper character on the nose. No carbonation. Very smooth mouthfeel as a result. Full-bodied. Flavors closely approximate the nose except coffee is less bold.” -- by DocJitsu

“Bottle shared at Great British Weekend (day 2) in Belgrade. Sour eggy aroma, very sweet buttery beer. Not tasty at all, a very odd house style. Not winning.” -- by luttonm
