COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale. For batch number 1500, Josh & Brian decided to brew a big hoppy beer, yet make it quaffable by keeping the alcohol level down. Turns out everyone liked it so much, that it is now brewed year-round. Loads of Simcoe and Amarillo hops are blended in the fermenter, just after fermentation has finished, to impart a huge aroma of pine and citrus.

olio (9004) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 8, 2016
355 ml bottle. Bottled on 19.01.2016.
Pours clear pale golden color with a large white head. Very resinous heavy aroma, sweet topical fruits, some hay and citrus. Bitter malt on the flavor, citric fruits, somewhat oily hops, some pineapple and some mandarin. Slick, oily palate, lingering fruity finish. Sadly not as fresh as I would have liked, decent.

Nocturne (1731) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 7, 2016
Keg at the 23 Club, Liverpool. Hazy golden/amber colour. White head. Fresh grapefruit hop aroma with piney and grassy elements as well. Taste is clean, resinous, moderately bitter. Nothing standout but seems like a classic example of the style.

harrisoni (16931) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Cask handpull at Clove Hitch Liverpool. Haze amber lasting off white head. Sherbet hop. It’s a very decent pale ale. Too carbonated. But the lemon grapefruit comes through with some balancing malt. Caramel aroma. Yes it’s ok but not a great pale ale. Caramel then bitterness some of which is carbonation.

Koskela (501) - Marysville, California, USA - FEB 28, 2016
I get a bitter hoppy aroma with a slight sweetness aroma in this hazy yellow brew with a small white head forming around the glass. Sweet then immediately bitter than sweet again ending in a decent balance in this medium bodied brew. The hop flavor is very grassy.
