COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We realized that (shockingly) not everyone wants to have their face melted off by hops and alcohol. At least not all the time. This is our stab at a pale ale.

750. Pours a hazy orangish amber with a fairly dense head. Aromas have a bit of an off edge to them, but finish in soapy citrus. Not sure what the off smell is... kind of hard to describe. Flavor is pretty middle of the road. Honey and orange blossom with a zingy carbonation. It’s a decent APA, but not a great one. I hoped for so much more.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at Bailey’s Range (St. Llouis, MO). Pours a nice glowing orange amber hue, a deeper glow, faint haze and mellow carbonation. Frothy offwhite head stays as a decent ring, laces ok. Aromas show some orange juice, grapefruit pulp and gentle florals. A kiss of melon, bready malts and decent bitterness kicks in. Initial is lighter end of the fold, pleasant gumball and melon meet some orange, a bit of bready malt with firmer bitterness as we start to move on. Grapefruit rind and pith, bitter florals and a bit of weedy green. The bitterness is on point, fresh and enjoyable with a bit of juiciness. Dry and floral finish with a bit of a fruity gumball/melon kiss. The beer is pretty fresh, hoppy with some nice fruity vibes and juiciness at times. Tasty.

deyholla (6644) - Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at Bailey’s. Pours a clear gold with a slight orange hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice sweet citrus with a light fruit note and a sweet grain backbone. Flavor has same sweet citrus with a bit more bitterness and light fruit as well as sweet grain backing.

Homer321 (1889) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Draft. Nose is a ton of grapefruit with a hint of pine. Pour is slightly hazy. Taste is very piney and citrus dominant with a drying finish. Very enjoyable.

Bif (1451) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 3, 2014
On tap. Served a cloudy golden color with a decent head and ample lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, grain and hint of malt sweetness. Taste of citrus, malt sweetness and grain. Nice bitterness and a finish that is quite dry. Medium body, crisp and refreshing. A bit hopped for a Pale Ale but still enjoyable.

theisti (3241) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - MAR 23, 2014
750 ml bottle purchased at Royal Liquors in Kansas City, Missouri. 9/13 date sticker on the bottom of the bottle. Wish I had noticed that at the store. The pour is a hazed orange golden with an off white head. The aroma is faded mineral grass hops along with toasted malt. The taste is grassy earth hop along with the toasted malt. The hop character is faded and muted. The palate is medium bodied with the mineral grass after taste. Solid, though I definitely need to try this fresher.

Finhead (1187) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Cloudy, brownish-orange pour with a very rocky, white head. The aroma has grapefruit mixed with pine. It has a medium, lively body with dry mouthfeel. The taste is very bitter with a dry finish. The bottle was extremely carbonated and flavor seemed too bitter for an APA.

Bottle in Vail, courtesy of jcnielsen. Thanks bro! Pours a murky bright orange appearance with a foamy white head. Some citrusy, soapy/floral hoppy, slight bready aroma. Slightly sweet, orange, honey, soapy flavor that finishes somewhat bitter. Ok.
