COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This deep amber, American-style pale ale is brewed with five different barley malts, generous additions of Cascade and Centennial hops, and a unique strain of yeast. The British, German and American malts used provide a complex blend of caramel, biscuit, and nutty malt flavors. The hops provide a gentle, pleasant bitterness with an intense floral and citrus aroma. It is dry-hopped, unfiltered and unpasteurized. We hope you enjoy this fresh, local beer. Brew details: OG 1.064. FG 1.016. ABV 6.3%. SRM 9.6. IBU 34.7.

Draft. Poured copper with a slightly off-white head. Well balanced but a weak flavor profile. Decent but forgettable brew.

MrTipple (3180) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 15, 2016
Light citrus fruit, grain and bread malts, light caramel. Slightly hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Light bitter. Bitterness continues, light floral hops, light citrus fruits, sweet orange, soft carbonation. Just about OK APA, aroma a bit of a miss, palate ok-ish. Keg at Mondo Taproom, Battersea.

ByTheirLimpin (269) - New York, USA - APR 29, 2016
Can to tulip. Hazy orange in the glass with a head that stands up and runs away. Nose was a little vacant. The palate picks up the pieces with a nice blend of Belgian notes, subtle banana is right as described, little zip from the hops carries through the finish, and the well selected grain bill ties everything together with a nice balance. Decent pale ale.

mike67 (1077) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 20, 2016
12 oz can. Pours amber with tall, long-lasting, fluffy white head, nice lacing and lively carbonation. Aroma is of caramel malt, citrusy hops and ripe fruit. Body is medium and slightly crisp. Herbal hops, pale malt and ripe fruit nicely balanced on the palate. Finish is long and dry. Very nice brew.

luttonm (4486) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2016
Draft at The Strand in Queens. Amber gold, stringy foam. Balanced citrus malt aroma. Nice citrusy hops with a lot of malt flavor to counter. Lighter body. Clean, tasty.

jflopsu (1163) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2016
Pours amber. Has a hop, malt, and caramel aroma. A sweet caramel taste with hops, malts and spices. A dry malt and grain aftertaste.

Heidbummer (171) - SCOTLAND - JAN 4, 2016
Swift pint near Times Square before dashing to JFK for flight home. Ruby/russet, a little thin and not much aroma, but it has loads of malt and a fair bit of bitterness. Deceptively drinkable for the abv (I’d have had this down as a session ale - just as well we only had one or we’d have missed our flight!). Nothing earthshattering but a fine drinkable nicely malty and bitter pint. Might well check out their tasting room next time we’re in New York.

Rich amber color; Medium slightly creamy body; Aroma of caramel malt, hops, & some fruit/citrus; Flavor of slight sweet malt/biscuit, caramel, herbal hops, and citrus; Finish is slightly bitter; Not bad.

Dogbrick (11180) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Sample at the taproom. Slightly hazy copper-orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily to a film. Short strings of lacing. Hops, fruit and malt in the nose. Light to medium body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and pale malts. The finish is mildly bitter with a short grassy hop aftertaste. Decent overall.

solidfunk (7230) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 26, 2015
Light citrus here and not much else besides a light malt backbone. Pours hazy amber with good lacing. Crisp finish. Tap at NY Beer Company.

gripweed57 (1325) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - NOV 23, 2015
16 ounce can. Amber orange color. Large rocky beige head. Pleasant toasted malt nose hints at walnuts and chalk. Bittersweet malt flavor has notes of baked bread and toasted nuts. Hops come through in finish with a floral and citrus burst. A decent pale ale.
