3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap in Portland.
Clear amber body with fair clarity.
quite hoppy but with average bitterness, at most, for style. In fact, there’s a nice note of sweet malts hiding in with the hops. Medium bitterness in the finish with the grapefruit peel bitterness building in the aftertaste with repeated sipping.

I rarely drink Pale Ale’s anymore, but this one is one to remember. It has a beautiful aroma, it looks beautiful, and it drinks so smooth. Very very good.

Aroma was the best thing for me about this beer. Served with a small thin off-white head although plenty of lace. Taste had some malt but it was Dominated with hop resin but also a little grapefruit, quite dry and minerally.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
n tap at The Growler Guys, pours a clear faded yellow blonde with a medium white head. Aroma brings piney and herbal hops, with a biscuity backing. Flavour is very hoppy, with loads of piney hops, herbal notes and biscuity malt to back. More like an IPA than a simple pale ale. Strong flavours and very good balance. Very good.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Brouwer’s. Pours clear medium copper with thin creamy white head that laces well. Aroma is lightly sweet caramel malt and faint fresh floral hops on the back. Taste is similar - clean light caramel malt with crisp lightly aromatic hops, mild grapefruit notes. Clean finish with a bit of lingering hops. Awesome pale, really well balanced, super easy drinking. I could drink this all day long.
