Hazy golden coloured body with a thin white head. Aroma of fresh hops, grapefruit, citrus and a lot of pine. Medium-bodied; Strong fresh hop flavour with a great piney flavour and a good strong malt backbone. Aftertaste shows quite a bit of bitterness, but very nice and well-rounded. Overall, a great fresh hop beer and a nice first sample here at Hop Cat. I sampled this pint on draught at Hop Cat in Grand Rapids, Michigan on 06-November-2010.

Firkin at Soup Spoon (from backlog). Golden pour with almost no head. Hay and citrus aromas and flavor. Super smooth, medium body (I’m sure that’s attributed to the firkin though).

Bright yellow-orange colored harvest ale. The body is fairly hazy. Three finger bone white head is set atop. The head dissipates at a moderate pace. Thick, heavy clumps of lace are left cemented to the glass. Bright fresh hop aroma oozes from the glass. Sweet citrus aroma is followed by a fair amount of green grace and fresh floral aromas. Subtle pale malt sweetness lies beneath. The bright citrusy aroma carries through to the flavor. Orange and tangerine flavors are fresh and juicy up front. The fresh floral earthy flavors from the fresh hops are present just behind. Soft bitterness, much more complimentary than biting. The malt is subtly sweet but overshadowed by the hops for the most past. Medium body Pale Ale. Carbonation is moderate and appropriate. The texture is almost creamy, I find this rather enjoyable. The finish winds up on the shorter side. A fantastic wet hopped beer, I hesitate very little to say this is my favorite hoppy option from Arcadia. Bright assertive flavors while refraining from ever becoming overpowering extremely drinkable, very enjoyable.

draft.... murky borderline ugly dark straw, almost a shade of neon in there... dead nose, just nothing going on... taste has a ton of flavor, fresh hops, wit a bit floral and pine, super easy to drink but has a yeasty finish that lasts to long on the palate

orange color, creamy quickly disappearing head, somewhat lacy. nose of citric hops. falvor of creamy caramel, citric hoppiness. medium bodied, nicely bitter, lingering finish. this would be a fairly pedestrian brew were it not for the finish.

On tap at the Hopcat. Pale yellow, a touch hazy, with a thin white head. Aroma of cat pee, resinous hops, honey and sweet malt. Taste is floral and resinous with medium bitterness. Moderate amounts of malt to balance it out.

On tap at Crunchy’s, East Lansing. Slightly cloudy straw-orange body, medium buff head. Resinous nose with citrus rind, herbal, soapy notes, and bitter pine. Bright, citrusy body, leafy and piny, with sweet caramely malts and berries. Good complexity.
