This pale ale rocks.
A lovely amber hue. The aroma is of roasted malt. The flavor is malty, nutty and especially hoppy. The hops definitely win out overall (hopheads take note). The finish is fizzy, crisp, clean and dry. Just bitter enough to satisfy a hophead on an off day. A great Summer beer for the rest of us.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap in Reagan Airport. Amber coloured beer. Aroma is lightly malty. A bit of herbal/toasty sweetness. Fairly generic though with not a whole lot of character. Low bitterness, kind of herbal. Meh.

Nice foamy pour. Cloudy yellow qppearance. Hop aroma is citrus. Begins malty, then Bitter grapefruit taste kicks in. Other fruit lurking in background. Hard carbonation. Fresh and drinkable. Refreshes. Lace remains in glass. Thanks for sharing, Radek.

Well-trained caramel and butterscotch malts lift the resinous, grapefruit hops high above their bulging arms. Screams "Come and get me".
Resinous, wooden hop bitterness proliferate on the full caramel/butterscotch soil. Oranges fall to the sweetness and marry both allegiances.
A boiling mind taking a break.

Draft. Pours copper with nose of hopcitrus, lemongrassy, caramel malt, with a medium palate and flavor of pretty heavy hops, a bit of fruit, and a solid malt bill. Very good, very hoppy, very crisp, and very assertive. Well done.

12 oz. bottle from a sampler, bottle 073108. Clear brown pour with not much head. Cascade hop aroma is strong with some vegetal notes. Very leafy hop taste with a grainy malt background. Medium bodied. Nice beer.

Orange hue with a gentle off-white ring. Fresh and crisp aroma boasts plenty of caramel malt developing a nice toffee and cookies side to pair with the rich hop profile, orangey and earthy, yet bright and vibrant. Surprising salty notes complement the vegetal, algae-like, earthy, herbal and globally natural flavour components. Pleasant oily medium body presents crisp carbonation that match well with the zesty hopppiness. Good stuff! Thanks a lot Hopscotch!
