COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It’s fitting this experimental pale ale was the first beer brewed at our Portland Pub. This XPA gets its bitter twist from Nugget, and Northern Brewer hops, then delivers a pronounced citrus kick from Cascade, Centennial and Citra hops. Consider this your next hop obsession.

Malt: Crystal
Hops: Nugget, Northern Brewer, Citra, Cascade, Centennial

solid effort at an APA, equal too, or perhaps surpassing mirror pond, depending on the mood. MP strikes me as a slightly more english leaning pa (although a little too hoppy to be classified as such). this one is slightly more unabashadly hoppy, a little paler, and a little cleanre. tasty brew."

Pours a medium amber-orange with a short white head and lacing. It has a mild aroma of amber malt and pine, and a flavor that is hops and malt up front with a malty backbone and slightly sweet finish over a medium body. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Terminus (3311) - Las Cruces, New Mexico, USA - SEP 25, 2014
Bottle-Pours dark orange slightly cloudy chill haze hue with a nice fluffy soapy off-white head and sparse lacing. Nose is herbal tea-some lite citrus but mostly herbal hops here. nothing special. flavors follow suit with quite a bit of floral herbal hop presence-again nothing special. subtle session pale ale here if anything else. Fair for what it is.

Bomber. Clear medium orange copper, off-white foam settles and mostly lasts. Fruity citrus hop aroma, slightly floral. Fruity orange citrus hop taste, mildly sweet pale malts, some floral herbal notes, clean and lightly bitter. Softer than average carbonation, lighter bodied, moderately hopped. Very nice.

I had a pint of this on a nitro draft at Funck’s near Hershey. This is a fantastic APA! The pour was light golden with a huge, soft and pillowy white head. The head left a huge amount of lacing around the glass. The nose was quite hoppy with some bready notes. The body was soft, velvety smooth and extremely drinkable. The flavors contained plenty of delicious, floral and resiny hops, along with some citrus, wheat and bread. This was an incredibly awesome APA!

Ernest (6516) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, off-white, mostly lasting. Body is medium amber. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain, cookie), lightly to moderately hoppy (flowers, apricot, orange/grapefruit), lightly to moderately yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety/creamy texture, lively carbonation. Simple, plain, and mild, but pleasant enough. A bit doughy.

Nice aromas and flavors of sweet fruit, mostly citrus. Not as bitter as many other pale ales but definitely sweeter. Body was a bit thin. A very good pale ale.

Un pale ale très malté. Pas trop amer. Facile à boire et très agréable mais rien de trop spéciale. Très bien équilibré. Couleur du cuivre avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme est du malt et agrumes mais c’est un peu sourdine.
