3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from Made in Oregon. Pours hazy translucent gold with a 3 finger foamy white head. Aroma is fruity with a little spiciness. Med body or better. It is very freshly hoppy, but itís mostly earthy/pungent. But the nose continues fruity. Malt: yes. But not caramel. Light malt. This is very unusual, and extremely flavorful - but not in a hop burn way. Close, but not quite. Delicious.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
draft. pale gold body with a fine-bubbled white head. highly attenuated pilsner malt gives it a light body, low sweetness/high dryness and a moderately husky/biscuit/cracker-like flavor. the hops are bright and pungent with mild cheesecloth and heavier pine shavings. snappy, dry and lively, itís an interesting take on IPA using all pils malt, and while itís certainly drinkable and enjoyable I think the body would benefit from a bit of pale two-row.

My Bottom Line:
Lean-bodied and prickly, this Pale Aleís subtle citrusy, spicy hops build a refreshing brew.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A ring of foam circles the hazy pale golden.
-This is extremely drinkable (6% abv?!?).
-Mouthfeel is a tad watery though...
-On paper, this looks like Beneluxís Sabotage, but the Sabotage delivers much more efficiently.
-Malts donít offer much in the way of flavor or comfort (and I usually love pils malts).
On tap at Naked City.

GCBF 2010. Hazy yellow, grassy aroma, a little sweaty. Crackery malts, grassy hops, plays out more like a pilsener than an IPA for me. Nothing stands out. Hmmmm...

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Straw, very hazy, large frothy white head, nice lacing.   Dull hoppy aroma, a little sweaty.   Very pale hoppiness up front, minor citrus, very little zing.   Seems like a pale Pale Ale.   Body and
mouthfeel are a little chewy.   Lackluster finish, seems like a dull wheatiness.   Not really bitter at all.   Looks great, but pales compared to most.   Lacks any umph or zest.
