Can from a trade. Solid APA here that reminded me of Dales Pale Ale - good balance of malt and hops.

Now this a good pale ale. Enough hops that they don’t get lost in the malts. Enough malts that the hops don’t overwhelm. Could drink many of these with a variety of foods.

12oz can courtesy of Greg G. Dark orange pour, murky clarity with mostly diminishing off-white head. Good lacing. Moderate citrus hop (grapefruit) and lemon on the nose. Heavy bitter dry citrus hop up front with a light dry citrus finish. More malt on the finish once this warmed a bit. Light body, dry texture, lively carbonation.

A little dark of a beer for me. Has some floral hints and sweetness at the start, but ends with a heavier, stronger lasting hit.

There is definitely a note of spruce here, as described. Good hoppy head with nice follow through of malt. Medium bitter finish. Very nice for style. Can at Solly’s.

Draft. Light amber/copper color with a fluffy offwhite head. Resinous pine dominates the nose on this guy. Taste is pine forward with a solid caramel undertone that doesnt outshine the pine. Very quaffable.
