COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pigskin Pale Ale is light in color yet high in malt and hop character. Crisp and clean like a well-executed touchdown pass, Pigskin Pale Ale finishes off with an end zone celebration of zesty, floral hops that says 6 points, American Style.

TheRealMGD (551) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2012
Tap @ PW. Light, clear, orange-gold pour with a short white head leaving heavy lace. Good head retention. Nose is light toast. Bread, light citrus, grass, sprouts. Crisp, medium-light body with moderate carbonation. Finish has some caramel, biscuit and some vegetal bitterness. Sessionable and quite tasty, but a bit more aroma would suit this APA to the ground.

Bomber. A malty American Pale Ale with light bitternes and a hint of citrus. Finish has some bitterness to it but is a bit flat.

Bomber pours a cloudy light orange haze. Purchased at Portland’s Whole Foods. Nice combination of bready malt with biting hops on top. This pale ale tops 98% of the competition - I cannot think of a single east coast competitor that trounces this except for Victory’s offering, I would go for a "pick 6" and score! on this one. Very well done.

Ibrew2or3 (6890) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2011
Bomber pours clear gold with slightly rocky tall light tan head. The aroma offers up spicy hops, sugar sweet malts and a touch of hoppy earthiness. The taste is similar with sweet sugary malts mixing with the spicy and faintly earthy hops. The hops grow a bit in bitterness midway and into the finish.

DuffMan (6745) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle, shared with JJ. Light amber gold, hazy, with a huge lasting white head. Aroma is sweet malts with a nice citrus hop dominance. Palate has sweet malt (golden syrup) supporting a nice fresh citrus hop character with a medium bitter finish. Solid.

presario (4626) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2011
Tap at Collins Pub. Crisp amber with thick foam. Light fruity hop scent. Interesting flavour! A praline coating on chewy bread and strong hops. Well balanced. A little mediciny in the aftertaste. Drinks like hoppy water.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Light bronze amber with thin head. Bitter floral aroma with some citrusyness. Bitter citrusy body with a honeyed finish. A pleasant harmony of bitter and sweet. Medium to think bodied. An easy drinker in the British bitter style.

TimE (3184) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 19, 2010
Light amber color. Lots of caramel malt and citrus hops going on.Fairly full bodied for a pale ale. Decent, but hardly particularly memorable.
