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.

Bottle. Pine and malt aroma. Flavour is resin and pine hops with a considerable amount of caramel malt. The malt was more prominent than I was expecting but it is nicely balanced with the hops.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2013 Keg at Jakeís Place. Second rating of this beer. Hazy amber body with a medium off-white head. Light carbonation. Average carbonation. Great lacing. Big caramel aroma with pine and light notes of orange. Flavour of maple syrup, caramel and lightly roasted malt. Orange and grapefruit hints. Medium body with a very oily, creamy texture. Average carbonation. After reading the blurb on the bottle, I expected this to be much hoppier than it is. Itís still a tasty beer, but I think the malt flavours are slightly more prominent than the hop flavours.

Has a slightly flabby scent, not at all citrus in nature, a little dull. In the mouth soft, sweet fruit predominates with a vegetal hint to the proceedings. Has a light bitterness to the close. Drinkable but not great.

Jonb5 (348) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Half pint at the Rake. Served in a small goblet. Amber colour, hazy, decent sized head, good lacing. Aroma was off fruit and malt. Tasted malt and cranberry, corky finish. Less hoppy than expected. Smooth, thick texture, low carbonation. Overall passable but more malt forward than expected from an APA.

sfontain (802) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 26, 2013
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. Iííve had better. Hmmm.

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.
