COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The second in our 2014 seasonal trail series, this sessionable Pale Ale is the ideal complimentary to the natural surroundings of the open trail. A rugged citrus hop character carries its weight against the grain with an easy going drinkability. Be sure to find room in your Daypack for a six-pack!

Skyview (5310) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Picked up single 12-oz can from Heritage Liquors in Maplewood, MN. Pours a clear golden light pale colored brew with an average sized off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of floral and citrus hops with some golden grain and some tropical fruit. Taste is medium bodied, with flavors of golden grain malt, citrus and tropical fruit and some tasted biscuit. Finish is semi-dry, with aftertaste of grassy hops and dry toasted golden malt.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Can… Pours lightly hazed and peach-colored with a mid-sized, foamy, white head. Good retention. The bouquet is heavy on the citrus fruit – pink grapefruit, tangelo – and also presents a resiny note. Full-bodied and lightly creamy with airy carbonation. Leans a touch toward the bitter side of balance, featuring a moderate amount of citrusy, rindy, resiny bitterness. Finishes modestly bitter and bone-dry. There’s a whole lot going on here for a 4.7% abv beer. Can courtesy of BVery!

Atom (1812) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 19, 2014
12oz can pours a semi-hazy copper/orange with a large white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and toffee malt with some slight citrus hop spice. Taste of dry carmel malt into a dry hop spice, light citrus and bitterness. Overall pretty light on flavor, drinkable forsure.

Sampled at Northgate Tasting. Overall a nice session IPA. Aroma is decent, taste is fleeting... but not bad overall.

arminjewell (8672) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - OCT 2, 2014
Pour on tap at Beer Dabbler, hazy orange-yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice orange, lemon, hints of pine, touch of mango into some light biscuit/bready notes, some yeasty spice notes come through as well. Taste is a mix of grass, pine, orange, lemon peel, some earthy, spicy hops into some biscuit, honey, finishing bitter.

madvike (3105) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 26, 2014
On cask at GTMW - Pours hazy yellow with no head. Nose is garlic/onion/citrus hops and pale malt. Taste is bitter grass, garlic, and pale malt. A little too astringent. Thin, with limp carbonation.

Braudog (6024) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - SEP 2, 2014
Draft at the brewery. Golden amber beer with a bountiful aroma of orange citrus. Drinks with a tangy bite and an earthen basis. Quite tasty, my favorite here. (#5670, 8/29/2014)

Stine (1662) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 28, 2014
Bright orange look; kiwi and peach summer aroma, fruity and feathery. Ferns. Soft caramel for some cleanly balance. Glacial moss, superior rocky water and tropical hop acid flavor. Herbal notes are fleeting and buoyant, balancing. Super clean palate, crisp and reviving as morning on the lake.

Trev (2012) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Dark gold pour, big white head. Aroma is citrusy hop dominating. Flavour is big hop over biscuity malt. Light to medium bitter lingering finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
