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.

Nice enough but 48 IBUs? Tasted a lot more bitter than that though it was a bottle at home so not super fresh.

Strong earthy grassy floral, citrusy hop aroma with bready malt Pours a hazy golden color with small wispy white head Earthy floral hop flavor with citrus and plenty of bready malt to balance it out Medium light bodied with medium co2, lingering hop flavor but not bitter. Enjoyable session beer for hop lovers. I could easily drink a few of these ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Base Camp Pizza in LT. Pours a a golden orange, slight head. Aroma is crisp and piney, very light amber. Body is medium-lively, finish slightly sweet, with some lingering bitterness. Very crisp and subtle, really a great example of the style.

hawthorne00 (2818) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 22, 2015
Bottle. Pale amber with a white head that lasts pretty well. Aroma of pine, grapefruit, oranges, peach, light bread. Light bodied, medium high carbonation with a little creaminess behind. Just a little sweet bready malt, some earth, lots of fruit - as much peach as citrus - less pine than suggested by the aroma but it combines with enough bitterness at the end to keep it from being fruit saladish. Very good, wished it were a little less fizzy.

Draft at Salt and Cleaver. Pours hazy golden amber with a fizzy white head. Tastes like mellow grapefruit, smooth citrus hops, light caramel, toasted malt. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like light grapefruit, citrus hops, and toasted malt.

On tap at the Serrano Hotel in San Francisco. Dank, citrus fruits, pine, zesty hops and moderate bitterness. Refreshing and easy to drink. A nice APA.
