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.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2008
Nice looking PA, golden straw body with a light hazy and a soft, frothy ecru head. Good pale malt backbone, light caramel sweetness with a soft grainy body. Sharp, astringent hops upfront that really sting the palate but slowly loosens its grip to segue into a great rlight resiny hop profile with subtle pine and soft citrus notes. Well done.

lb4lb (2546) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 29, 2008
Bottle as a bonus in trade with hopdog. Thanks man! Pours orange with a fluffy lasting white head. Smell is mild fruity orange and tea like earthiness. Taste is very balanced with a nice malt presence with slightly strong orange fruity bitter hoppiness. Moderate hoppiness and spot on for a pale ale. Medium to full body with crisp carbonation. Solid, enjoyable pale ale.

Rusty (1536) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - NOV 18, 2008
Aroma of malt, pine and hops. Flavor is oily reinous pine and bitter hops balanced out with just enough malt. Decent pale ale.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2008
Bottle. Poured medium orange with Thick white head. Aroma of citrusy hop. Malty flavour, with a hop spine and edge. Thin mouth. Hop in the finish, but not a lot. This smells like a Cape ale and tastes like a pale.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - OCT 28, 2008
22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a hazy golden color with a one finger thick off white head. Light lacing. Aroma is big citrus and pine hops with some underlying toasted malt hiding in there. The flavor has a bit more malt to it, but the hops still lead the way. This is one of those beers that will balance out with a bit of time. Medium body. A decent APA.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2008
Too sweet by half, fruity, malty and overpoweringly scented. Smell clings and permeates the taste. It does look purty though!

boFNjackson (4133) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 19, 2008
Bomber bottle... Poured orange with a think white head, nice lacing. Beautiful, floral hops on the nose with a little spicy residue. Great drinkability and a satisfying hop bitterness for a mere pale ale. Other flavors of citrus and other fruits and a mild candy like sweetness probably from malt.

trokini (1025) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2008
Pours hazy orange with a lasting short white head. Earthy caramel malt, nuts, and toffee in the nose with grassy hops. Smooth, robust taste with apricot and grapefruit hops, light resin, butterscotch malt, and a slight vegetable taste. Nice APA.

vulcanmeister (196) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - OCT 4, 2008
Pours light coppery on tap with medium white head. Because I got it in a restaurant, it was colder than I would normally drink it. First taste was a nice light sweentness, floral notes and a good kick of hops. Continues with toasty malt,citrusy zest, and spice. Nice crisp bitterness at the finish.

hayduke (3366) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 23, 2008
From a 22 oz bottle this poured a golden to amber that looked like rich apple cider with a moderate dingy white head and good lacing that stuck to the glass like glue. Nose of citrus hops, mostly grapefruit, with light caramel malts. Very nice mouthfeel that was just short of sticky. Flavor was bitter and it tasted almost like an IPA, but not quite. Bitter finish that rounded off a very drinkable APA that I would easily go back to again.
