Hoppy but astringent. On tap at new Amsterdam brewpub. I can see that this is the base beer to coffee, etc. Slightly orange body with head.

Tap at the Brewery Market. Deep amber pour with a tight off-white head. The aroma is great. Loaded with juicy citrusy hops and an almost tropical component as well. The malt base has a lovely softness but manages to remain dry. No apparent crystal malt but isn’t all pale malt in the base. Moderate bitterness that balances the malt well. This was the first keg to kick and it’s not hard to see why. Delicious.

[4339-20120318] Tap. Woody citrus peat aroma has a bit of toasted evergreen. Slightly hazy, amber brown body with a quick foamy off-white head. Bitter peaty citrus wood continues in the flavour with a hint of cat pee. Medium-full body. Tasty and bitter, just a touch too much pee-like notes but quite good. (7/3/7/4/15) 3.6
Overheard: "It’s nice."

Draught at Volo, March 5. Pours a bubbly deep orange-copper with an average size lasting frothy white head. Aroma of Citra hops, fruity and citrusy, along with pale malt -- simple but nice. Flavour follows the aroma, citrusy and fruity hops along with pale malt and just a touch of grain. Average bitter finish. Average bodied. A simple but pleasant, easy to drink Pale Ale.

May 10, 2013 - on gravity cask at Corks. Wow, all the times I have had this, I haven’t put a rating in yet? shame on me. Hazy orange-amber with a solid creamy/frothy beige head. Smells of resin and grain/wheat gluten - very lush, some alcohol. Taste follows, a bit sweet, quite malty, peach and floral notes. Average body, mild carbonation (but okay for gravity cask), medium-length finish, emerging grapefruit pith coating the palate, a bit astringent too - better on tap, IMO. (cask score 7-3-7-3-15=3.6)
