COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg& bottles, regular.Dry hopped for extra aroma, this pale ale has a light malt base with just the right mouthfeel to allow the hop character to predominate. Grapefruit like bitterness is full and lasting and is balanced by a zesty citrus burst of aroma from two late additions of cascade hops.

CanIHave4Beers (3322) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - MAY 22, 2012
On Draught,
Pours a golden color with a small wispy head that disappears.

The aroma has some minerally character, a good bit of grassy hops, and a sort of buttery thing I’m having a hard time ignoring.

The flavor is nicer than the aroma; the hops are still grassy in a pleasant way and compliment a fair presence of herbal hops nicely. The beer has mild fruity characteristics and some mineral earthiness as well.

HogTownHarry (6126) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 17, 2012
February 15, 2011. Shared by garthicus with blankboy and me. 500ml bottle. Dry-hopped. Hazy orange with a smallish creamy/fizzy diminishing head. Aroma of apple, pear, floral bitterness, sweet, but reasonably balanced (can’t quite go 7); slightly biscuity. Taste is surprisingly bitter, floral (marigold), with appleseed - quite light. Light mouthfeel, weak carbonation, finishes dry and surprisingly (appleseed) bitter. Nothing wrong with it, a little generic and unmemorable.
