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.

Finhead (1201) - 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.

UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle in Vail. Pours a copper color with white head. Citrus hoppy, yet malty sweet aromas. Citrus, hoppy flavors in a balanced pale ale. Really solid pale ale.

justsayswell (60) - Missouri, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Pours a muddy copper with a pillowy head. Lots of lacing. Nose is dank pine hops, a little grapefruit. Great medium-bodied mouthfeel, carbonation is well-balanced. Taste is molasses bread, piney hop bitterness. Tastes like hop extract a bit though. Good hop flavor for only 37 IBUs. As it warms, the alcohol becomes more pronounced. Reminds me a bit of Dale’s Pale Ale. Really solid APA.

750 ml bottle from in-person STL trade. Pours a cloudy bright golden color with a finger of cream-colored head that laces the glass. Notes of citrus, bread, herbs, grass, florals, dry grains, and faint tropical fruit. Light-bodied, with soft carbonation and a bready, bitter mouthfeel. Nice, well-balanced APA.

Bottle. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hop and floral aroma. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Solid brew.

DrSilverworm (6818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 18, 2013
750ml bottle, shared by phaleslu. Mostly hazy orange amber color. Foamy off-white head, with good retention. Some citrus in the nose, a lot more in the flavor. Good grassy citrusy hop. Some loose bits of lace. Smooth, slightly soft, sort of crisp lighter carbonation, more dry finish. Moderate to bigger biter taste, lighter sweet. Pretty good pale ale.
