COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop-forward character of this Pale Ale shines through in the unique, tropical fruit flavor of two American hop varieties. Enjoy this offering with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

Sampled in a can. A nice brew. Decent hop levels. Worth a try and priced nicely to enjoy.

RedSox2004 (1392) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - APR 6, 2015
Clear amber orange with a one-finger off-white head and moderate lace. Stale hoppiness countered by solid caramel sweetness. Medium body, sticky mouthfeel, medium carbonation and a slightly metallic finish.

floydslip (231) - Washington DC, USA - APR 3, 2015
Light amber beer with a thin foamy eggshell head. Waxy nose of soap, resin, and perfume. The flavor is quite different than the smell with a decent hop blast up front with pine and subtle citrus, which gives way to a light caramel malt sweetness and then everything kind of ends. Very little finish here. Decent, not great.

RasmusOtt (1378) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 2, 2015
Pours hazy amber with a beige head. Aroma of Faded hops, sweet caramel, malty sweetness and weak honey. Taste is bitter along with some sweeter notes. Bready toasted malts, grassy hops, weak citrus and sweet malts.

MPA (860) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - MAR 30, 2015
Can from Systembolaget somewhere in Stockholm. Slightly hazy golden with decent off white head. Grass and lime aroma. Sweet malty flavour with a lemon fruity bitterness in the finish. Mediocre.

Terminus (3316) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - MAR 28, 2015
Can from beer of the month club Pours hazy orange hue with a nice soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is really musty, slight tropical notes, dirty gym sock, earthy, never had a pale that smelled like this. Its not bad but not great either. Flavors are very earthy, piney slightly chalky, herbal, slight grapefruit. Some nice malt base here. I find these beers better than the average ratings. Maybe because i got them super fresh. I dunno. Nonetheless, a decent pale ale for the masses.

Beer of month club. Pours from can an ice tea color with one finger of foam head - very attractive in the glass. That is the high point, unfortunately. Nose is a bit muted, mostly malt. Taste is malt, caramel and lemon zest...it's actually pretty simple tasting. It's not bad - definitely drinkable - but nothing memorable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

jsmerig (1310) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2015
Pours a deep golden brown with a tan head. Aroma of sour buscuity malt. Taste is full of hop flavor without a large amount of bitterness. Interesting. The malt backbone has an odd taste. Otherwise it's a pretty good pale ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AdamJackson (3309) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 19, 2015
Dark orange appearance almost no head. From a can and didn’t make a sound when I cracked it. Nose is weak, resinous. Weak. Taste is just not good. Old shoe, mulch, earthy. Almost no bitterness. Thin, flat mouthfeel

CervezaCabeza (46) - Le Mans, FRANCE - FEB 24, 2015
Pours cloudy copper gold with a thin white head. Moderate lacing. Aroma is slight bread, pine, tropical fruit, and citrus. Flavor is hoppy, pineapple, spicy grapefruit, lemon lime, with a malty balance. Tart and refreshing has a heavier mouthfeel for the bright flavors. Pretty decent pale ale offering.
