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.”

VeinAle (112) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 31, 2014
The title of this APA rings true, watery. Way too easy drinking. Tasteful, quickly fading, just keep drinking it. Was part of sampler pack.

Nephilium (1462) - Ohio, USA - DEC 18, 2014
Moderate hop aroma, with earthy, floral, and caramel notes. Pours a clear amber with a quickly fading white head. Very full flavored, with a kiss of caramel sweetness which then goes to the hop notes. Flavors of citrus, and floral notes predominate, which slowly fade to a lingering bitter finish. A very nice APA to sit down and have a couple of.

ghostbeer (37) - Nebraska, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Complex and full of hop aromas and a good hop flavor but there is more to it than just that. It is artful in the simplicity and yet pages could be written about it. I am a fan of the brewery in general and this beer in particular.

Obfuscate (228) - Minneapolis, - NOV 25, 2014
UPDATED: FEB 7, 2015 I’ve had these many times on tap up north and always really liked them. Drinking this one out of a bottle. Big nose of hops and citrus, some caramel. Tastes quite balanced.

Light retention and light lacing. Smells of floral, caramel and pine. Tastes of floral, caramel malt and citrus peel. Semi-bitter aftertaste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Oldschool_Mike (141) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 11, 2014
Bottle into IPA glass. Pours a clear golden colour. Aroma is of citrusy hops. Taste is of citrusy hops and a little breadyness. Quite a good beer. Could drink this all day. -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10
