4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pour out of growler, Darkness Day 2012. Straw yellow pour with lacing white head, aroma brought awesome notes of lots of orange peel, grapefruit, nice dank pine and grassy notes, some slight hints of floral and spicy notes. Taste is a mix of sweet orange, grapefruit, nice toffee, biscuit, bread, nice grass, pine and floral notes, finishing bitter. Very nice brew.

On tap at the brewery numerous occasions. Super easy drinking ale. Very refreshing on a warm day out east in Alpine. Bitter, floral and crisp throughout with citrus and pine character, very thirst quenching. Just like the rest of Alpines world-class bitter brews, insanely balanced from beginning to end.

Growler thanks to my pal Vince. Dry, crisp, and chuggable. A hint of citrus followed by a torrent of hoppy, grassy, bitterness. Excellent beer.

Growler shared at Woodshop 7. Not super fresh but way better than plenty of fresher hoppy beers out there. Sweet citric aroma with oranges, tangerines, lemons and mild stone fruit. Flavor is nice and tropical, grapefruit and orange and mango, a hint of sweeter malts in the back, dry finish and lightly bitter.

Growler shared by yourefragile. Thanks Michael!
The beer appears straw yellow and slightly hazy. The head is thick and white, displays lasting retention, and leaves ample lacing on the tulip glass. The aroma...wow. One of the best aromas in a pale ale I have ever experienced. This would give any IPA more than a run for its money. Fresh hops and a blast of varied citrus. The flavor is absolutely phenomenal. This is perhaps the most drinkable and enjoyable <6% beer I have had the pleasure to sample. Perfect? Ya, pretty much. My highest recommendation.
