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.

12 oz bottle, Whole Foods. Lovely pour; brownish-red, hazy with discrete yeast particles; rocky tan head; heavy lacing. Aroma very strong pine, medium citrus and caramel, light toast. So far so good, but it falls apart in the flavor; bitter bitter hop and sharp, a little astringent, not nearly enough malt for balance. Thin body.

Dull. Bit of a burn. Lacks definition & structure. Sort of unforgettable. I’’ve had better. Hmmm.

altonbrownd (3766) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 20, 2013
On tap at Firkin Fox, Dulles Airport. Gold amber body with small head. Roasty and caramel nose. Taste is hoppy, sweet, some citrus and lots of bitterness. Quite nice.

AshtonMcCobb (2313) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - APR 20, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours amber with a nicely proportioned head. The nose is orange and pine - lovely aromatics - with a gentle malt backbone. The taste has malt and grapefruit. The palate has a medium body, a creamy and bitter texture and a dry refreshing finish. Overall, a good American IPA example.

McNeillR (1088) - SCOTLAND - APR 19, 2013
Firm orange amber body and slight white head. Tropical as you would expect nose from a hop combo. Sweet as a nut is initial taste is swept away by huge grapefruit and orange medley kept straight with a dry malt and firmer bitter finish.

Bottle, Marksman Tasting, Edinburgh

A tasty pale ale with ample hop aroma. Not quite enough malt balance. Still would buy this again.

chimpgibbon (277) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2013
Pretty dull really. Sturdy malt backbone indeed. So much so i don’t get much hop till right at the end. Not really a mountain then. It’s not bad or anything, but surely these days...

Bottle sampled at Great Grog. Slightly hazy dark copper/orange, thin white head. Very "American" nose - caramel, pine, slight alcohol warmth, spicy lemony Cascade (?) character. Slight sweetness, fairly dry, grapefruit, pine resin, soft bitter finish. Pleasant and drinkable.
