Iím not even a fan of the pale ale style and I thought this brew was great. Nice complement to my meal as well. No overpowering tastes- great way to cleanse a palette as well. Light hop zest with mild maltiness but not much sweetness- perfect pale ale!

Bottle from Systembolaget. (Bottle is six months old). Pours somewhat hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is mainly herbal (dill) and floral, light orange and peach, some malty notes as well. Taste is sweet floral with a medium bitterness in the background not overpowering the sweetness and finishes with a sweet kick before a dry herbal bitterness settles in. Medium body .

Well constructed pale ale. Piney hop aroma leads to well balanced malty pale ale with Cascade hops front and center.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Appearance: golden to dark orange color, thick and dense off white head,
Aroma: hints of hoppy grass, very faint bitterness, pine, citrus, a bit faint smelling all around
Taste: hoppy, citrus, some moderate bitterness, grass, can also get some roasted malt flavor, possibly some smokiness from the malt
Palate: pretty highly carbonated, feels light on the tongue, leaves a grass bitter aftertaste
Overall: this is an excellent pale ale, I wish I could get it here, besides the aroma being a bit faint it delivers every other way

Although I am biased, because I live and breathe in KC, this pale ale is much better than its ratings. Accordingly, I donít do the mouthfeel, taste, color thing -- while I certainaly appreciate all attempts to deciper the secret meaning of those fruity smells and frothy heads. Out of hand, this is my go-to beer, year round, and I love it. Didnít love it at first because I was a íseriousí beer drinker. As a ínormalí beer drinker who strives for freshness and awesomeness, it is KCís finest.

Moderately Hazy Orange with a moderate amount of carbonation with tons of lacing. Nose consists of Sweet Citrus & Floral Hops, Yeasts, Caramel, and Malts. Flavor is very Floral Hop and Malt forward followed by Caramel and a slight grassyiness. Aftertaste is a bittersweet citra-hop finish. Body is moderate in weight yet thick and the carbonation starts off strong but levels out to a milder level the more you let it sit. Itís a solid pale ale overall.

Lord help me I love a beer that looks as though you could chew it! One swirl in the tulip and this looks like a frothy caramel toffee. Poured from a 12oz bottle Iím diggin the hallmark bottle conditioned haze and the butterscotch creamy head. This beer succeeds on many levels. The malts are rich and well defined a tad too sweet perhaps but notable caramel and hazelnut flavor. The hop profile is very juicy with a multitude of fruit flavors including apricot, plum and orange. There is also a warm resinous pine throughout. The finish has an interesting sweet/ sourness to it. I think I prefer a pale ale thatís just a bit more dry.. but i would revisit this gladly..Worthy effort! RANT (brief) Donít sleep on Boulevard! Double dang good brewery. I just purchased their 2X6 mixed 12 pack (IPA-Pale Ale- Bock-Wheat-Porter-Amber Ale) at like $13.00 here in Minneapolis. Well crafted beers with variety, at the nice price is always a good thing!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Slightly hazy orange amber with a small head and decent lacing. A light aroma of mostly herbal and floral hops with some malt character. Herbal and floral hops come through in taste with some breadiness from the malt and a bit of citrus. Medium body and carbonation. An adequate pale ale but there are much better examples.
