COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This is base camp, where any craft brew exploration begins. A distinct hop nose and hop-forward flavor make Mirror Pond the quintessential Pale Ale. It is aromatically complex, multi-layered, and unmistakably “right.”

Rated based on notes taken 25 Sep 2013 -- A very nice pale. Classic West coast example. Just enough malt and more than enough hops.

floydslip (247) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Murky amber beer with a medium foamy eggshell head. Juicy hop nose of citrus, spruce, and grass. Flavor is less citrusy and more on the resinous side, which is a bit of a let down after the aroma, but it is pleasant enough with a soapy bitterness followed by a subtle cereal sweetness. Some of the bitterness returns on the finish, which is surprisingly dry. Decent beer.

Pours dark gold/amber with lots of head and lacing. Noes is plums, peach and some grass. Flavours same, plus cereal, maybe some grapefruit. Taste medium/light bitterness, light/medium sweet. Medium/light body, lively carbonation.

Great, fruity/spicy yeast character. Nicely balanced hopping with a juicy malt center. Good aromatics - great pale ale with food ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

JMCtime (73) - Washington, USA - APR 25, 2015
Smooth and mild. Light on the citrus and tanginess that usually come with IPAs. Still very flavorful and well balanced.

DrunkSanta410 (587) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 19, 2015
Bottle at home, Amber pour, good head retention. Slightly hoppy, fruity aroma balanced with heavy caramel malts. Taste is light spice, grains, light fruity hops. Average body, mouthfeel. OK pale ale, just really didn’t do much for me.
