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.

Idiosynkrasie (6301) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - JUL 14, 2016
355ml can. Slightly cloudy, amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Rather expressionless, piney hoppy aroma, caramel malty background. Taste is moderately sweet caramel malty, hints of pine. Monotonous, vacuous - neglectable.

StefanSD (2352) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle. Pours dark amber with a small white head that soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is faint and indistinct with perhaps just a trace of sweet pine oil. The taste is more along the lines of what I would expect from an amber ale. Lots of caramel with pine hops bite. The palate is medium. Finishes short. Overall: meh

FROTHINGSLOSH (6615) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2016
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a red-brown color with a medium sized foamy orange-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sweet and toasty with notes of tobacco and hints of pine and fruity hops. The flavor was bitter with tobacco, wood, toasted caramel and pine. Medium length finish. Medium body. Meh.

12 once bottle from brother in law. Surprised this didn’t get better ratings. Bottle says "bright, tropical, citrusy" and I get all that. Not a new favorite but I enjoyed it.

Derek881 (1247) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Poured from the bottle into a pint glass to drink. The beer had a clear rich amber-copper color with a large foamy/creamy white head with very good retention, and modest cling and lacing. Its aroma featured pine, straw, and grain hops, along with some light floral scents and a touch of malt. The taste was mostly a modest bitter blend of grain with a very slight malty sweetness at the finish. It was a fairly wet and smooth beer with below average carbonation for a somewhat lighter mouthfeel.
