COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hop lovers, this is the beer for you. Four different styles of American hops are artfully staggered against a sturdy malt backbone to create a unique, drinkable and balanced Pale Ale.

Toffee apple sweetness up front what was interesting about it was from such a sweet kick it turns into a bitter aftertaste. While i normally like a hoppy beer this was just not doing it for me, i’d like to try it again, in case it was just me or the bottle.

Rune (7943) - Tromsø, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2013
Tap, 6.7% abv, one third pint measure at Jake’s Place. Clear, red-brownish coloured body. Fair off-white head, spotty lacing. Malt-fruity smell, marmalade-like. Semi-sweet grapefruit taste with bread-like malts beneath. Fresh deep bitter ending. Well bodied. Nice (Edinburgh 09.08.2013).

rumproasts (2846) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
bottle. Golden with small head. Unexciting pale ale. Moderate hops that seem a bit past their prime. Slightly below average.

PorterPounder (5446) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Trade with Aurelius - thanks! Pours a cloudy dark orange with a sticky off-white head that leaves a nice film of lacing. Aroma has some light spruce notes, some peachy notes. Flavor is full bodied with some syrupy piney notes, a touch of bittersweet grapefruit notes and some caramel sweetness. Mouthfeel come off a bit starchy. Overall, decent.

MadRobin (1880) - Silver Spring, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Poured from 12 oz. bottle. Clear, dark copper-red with a 2-finger khaki head and excellent lacing. Aroma of pine, floral hops, caramel and bread. Taste of floral hops, bread, pine, caramel and a bit of grapefruit with a bitter finish. Medium body and medium carbonation with slightly gritty mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Hazy amber beer, little cream coloured head. Smooth palate, slightly soft. Mild fine carbonation. Light creamy malt, light toffee. Sweetish citrus with mild minty pine. Finishes smooth. All very civilised, perhaps too much so.

355 mL bottle. They used all of the right words in their description, and this one looks right and smells great. But the taste, while solid, doesn’t quite measure up. That’s not not to say, however, that this isn’t a solid, drinkable, and somewhat different (good thing) pale ale.
