COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When we first introduced “Aftermath” in our tasting room, we were looking to produce a drinkable Pale Ale that wasn’t just a reproduction of everyone else’s Pale Ale. We succeeded in creating ours with a unique blend of 5 hop varieties to produce a pale with HUGE hop aroma and flavor, without the bitterness of an IPA.
Hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, Columbus, Mosaic
Malt: Pale, Munich

Poured up on tap at the brewery where it exhibits a clear deep gold body that has copper hues and supports a near white head of foam leaving behind sheet lacing. The aroma is big inviting Mosiac and Cascade like hoppiness that pulls up the juiciness and mild maltiness. This smells nice. The taste hits with juicy tangelo and clementine malt sweetened hops. It gets resiny with grapefruit like citrus hop bitterness and pine hops to midway. Into the finish the malty base starts to make noise and joins in seamlessly with the citrusy hoppiness. Wow, a fresh glass of this is just delicious. I have been holding off buying this canned at a bottle shop since far too many pales go downhill fast. Fresh is best here.

From a tap at the brewery.The pour is a pale gold in color and has an amazing tropical hop flavor reminds me of olive garden tropical ice tea of PALE ALES!.

Type: 12-oz.can Glass: Can/pint glass From: Whole Foods in La Jolla (San Diego), Calif. Price: $9.99 for a 6-pack Purchased: April 19, 2014 Consumed: April 19, 2014 Misc.: Rated everything but the color on a train; rated the color the next day Poured a caramel, orange, semi-clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of white foamy head. Good foamy lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention. Smelled sugary floral notes, citrus notes, grapefruit, butter orange, resin hops, tropical hops and orange sorbet. Tasted similar to the nose. Got sweet floral notes first, citrus, orange sorbet, resin hops, tropical hops, mango and slight butter notes. Light body. Thin-to-oily texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Rather abrupt finish. A very good pale ale. Will definitely have it again.

adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a kind of murky, bright orange appearance with a lastin off white head. Aroma is really nice, lots of tangerine, mango, tropical fruits, and some spicy hops. A little bit bready flavor and moderately high bitterness, but tons of delicious tropical fruity notes, especially mango. Somewhat bitter finish. Fairly well balanced. Nice brew.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - FEB 24, 2014
12oz can. No date. Big aromas of ripe mango, peach and orange, with a slight malt undertone. Mouthfeel is medium-plus bodied, with a creamy, soft carbonation. Flavors of mango and orange purée, with a subtle malt backbone. Another decent example of dry-hopping, offering subtle bitterness, with ton of hop nuance. Good stuff for a shelf SoCal PA. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Aubrey (3432) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2014
Flavorful and fruity IPA. Creamy and smooth. Solid malt backbone with a nutty-toastiness and a nice amount of caramel sweetness. Hop flavors are filled with tropical fruits and sweet pine. Bitterness is moderate, balanced. Good stuff.

bhensonb (11060) - Woodland, California, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Can from Bine & Vine. Pours golden amber with a foamy off-white head. Aroma has lots of hop- a bit dank with citrus. Med body or nearly. Flavor is very hoppy with a little roasty malt backbone. Dank, citrus, and maybe other hop type flavors. It is really hoppy. Excellent.

gmellison (423) - Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head. Aroma is floral, spruce, citrus, a little muted. Flavor is citrus, pine, a little dank, overall pretty nice hop character, without much malt to even it out. One-sided, but pretty good, if not too exciting.

arminjewell (6175) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 2, 2014
Pour out of can hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of pine, lemon, orange peel, bitter pithy fruits, hints of biscuit and bread, slight yeast. Taste is a mix of yeast, spice, some hints of bread, nice lemon, orange peel, grapefruit, slight oxidation but not bad, finishing fairly bitter. Nice.
