COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of the first beers I brewed after moving out to California to begin my brewing education was a Pale Ale. This version is a true testament to the influences the Wild West had on my early brewing. My Pale Ale is loaded with US-grown Cascade, Crystal, and Columbus hops, so be sure to take a good sniff to enjoy their robust aromas before taking your first sip. Sensory Profile: An aromatic beer with notes of citrus, pine, a noticeable bitterness, and a touch of malty backbone to help balance it out. Food Pairing: Foods with a spicy kick are a great match, as the bitterness of the hops will help to cool the palate before your next bite. Mexican food and pizza are natural matches.

Bottle. Lots of garlic in this one. Seems like old hops, otherwise classic American pale ale. Not very enticing through lack of fine aromatics. Rough vegetables instead.

StueyD (1440) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2015
A mid gold coloured beer with a weak white head. A light hop aroma, citrusy and grassy. Dry mouthfeel. The taste is hoppy, bitter and grassy, some citrus fruit and a touch floral in the background. There is a mild malt flavour in the finish that balances the hoppiness. Draught @ The Beer Authority, New York.

American pale ale bem equilibrada... Muito saborosa... Aroma cítrico balanceando o aroma do malte...

RuneStumo (2410) - Haugesund, NORWAY - FEB 19, 2015
19.02.2015. 0,355l Bottle. From Bread & Butter, New York. Amber golden colour with off-whita head. Very bitter and rich. Notes of grass and hay. There is also a pretty desent aroma of darker malts. Very dry mouthfeel gives a fresh, but kind of heavy beer. Aftertaste is dry bitter with more malts and grass. At the end there is that ripe fruits dryness.

16oz on tap, poured a light amber colour, on the nose nice light grassy hops with spicy malt. Taste was well balanced with a hint of fruitiness in the hops.

probstblueribbon (3300) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2014
12 oz bottle from BOTW (Rochester), served at cellar temperature in a tulip glass. BOTTLED 12032013 (!)

App.: Clear light amber with a decent, fluffy, off-white head. Aroma: Fruity hops, grapefruit, lightly peppery, fairly forward melanoidin/caramel maltiness, a little dusty. Palate: Medium body and medium-ish carbonation. Flav.: Mostly citrusy hops, a little flat compared to the nose, herbal, slightly floral, reasonable Vienna/Munich malt with some graininess; dry with fair bitterness and a kinda dusty, vague finish.

Too old, too bad.

EithCubes (5242) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 19, 2014
Bottle. Nose is heavy on the caramel and pine, doughy and somewhat spicy. Pours hazy copper with abundant carbonation and a large sudsy beige head. Taste only lightly sweet with light bitterness, lightly grainy under the citrus but not too bad, green leafy hops character on par with the strong caramel, which is dominant here, and lesser pine. Crisp, clean, refreshing, but I’m not returning its calls.
