The dry hop hits you right at first sip. Itís quite a great achievement to dry hop and make a beer such as this. Not sure if this recipe has changed since the green flash merger but really fantastic pale. Itís really an ipa that is masking itself as a pale ale with lower abv.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Hops and Pie. Pour is clear golden orange with a big white head and sticky lacing. Piney, citrusy, light caramel, grassy, somewhat dank, orange peel, and bread in the aroma. Taste is orange peel, grapefruit, marmalade, weed, and lemongrass with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Solid offering.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap at Toronado Seattle, pours a clear copper with a small white head. Nose is divine, with loads of piney and resinous hops, with some pot-like notes in there as well. Flavour is wonderful, with truckloads of piney and pot-like hops coating the palate. So much depth to this - itís pushing it to call this a pale ale - definitely an IPA. Phenomenal stuff.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Really liked this one. Amazing depth of flavor for the low ABV. And, could easily be the first "hoppy APA" Iíve had that *doesnít* taste like an IPA (previously, I always thought -- whatís the point?). Itís hard to explain, but thereís hoppiness, but not as much bitterness, and the pine/citrus notes of an IPA are much lessened. Highly recommended.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thick bubbled but thin head. Plenty of blanket lace on the glass. Cloudy dark amber color.
Semi-earthy with floral hop aroma.
Lots of biting pine and nearly astrigently dry malt. High carbonation but low richness. Chewy finish. Long lasting aftertaste of straight up bitterness.
