Bottle from Beers of the World, Henrietta. Raisin aroma. Hoppy lemony taste, raisin notes, bitter finish. Suspect it’s not that fresh, but still good.

Poured into a shaker glass. Light to medium amber with a foamy cream colored head. Great aroma with some bread and caramel as well as a lot of citrusy hops. Flavor doesn’t have a lot of detectable malt character but has a nice dose of hops with equal parts earthy and citrusy notes. Medium bodied with nice carbonation and a crisp finish. Overall really nice for a pale ale and better than a lot of average IPA’s I’ve had.

JohnRMurdoch (4056) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - NOV 2, 2015
Tap @ The Ginger Man. Orange brown, reasonable head. Grain malt aroma. Sweet chewing gum hop flavour. Perfume aftertaste. Not hoppy enough for a pale ale.

Ernest (7036) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, white, fully diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), moderately malty (grapefruit, apricot, flowers), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic, lightly to moderately astringent. Some raw doughy yeast hurts the aroma a bit, but the hops themselves are pleasant, not the resin bomb I thought this would be based on the brewer. Good quaffing flavor balance. A little astringent and watery, but overall a decent brew.
