NOTE: The recipe for this beer changed significantly in 2011.

A light, refreshing, hoppy pale ale. A showcase for the incredibly aromatic North American hop – Citra. It has a lovely citrus aroma, with juicy fruit flavours in the mouth. Medium bitterness.

Bottle at malamačka. Pours a slightly hazy light yellow color, topped with a big frothy white head. Fine retention. Fruity aroma, mild notes of tropical fruits to be precise. Slightly herbal, mild bitterness and some gentle herbs in the aftertaste. Nice.

MartinT (8619) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
My Bottom Line:
This frothy and fragrant American-style Pale Ale lays elderberries and flowers upon grass and citrus fruit, a mighty engaging profile seguing into lengthy resinous bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam tops the misty golden.
-The mouthfeel is dry and bubbly, perfect to showcase all these beautiful hops.
-The hoppiness may be intense, but drinkability is still very high.
-A mineral touch is felt within.
-All this flavor and 4.1% abv? Sign me up for more!
