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.

Pours gold with a good off-white head. Lots of pine both in aroma and taste. Hoppy for a lower-alcohol IPA. Pretty good overall.

Pours a light copper color with a caramel malt aroma and taste. A nice light, easy drinking beer with a dry aftertaste. Slight biscuit and toast flavor.

ciocanelu (1053) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - JUN 12, 2016
Slightly hazy deep golden color with slightly off-white head. Aroma has some citrusy and piney hops, slightly dank and vegetal. Taste follows, citrusy, slightly resiny and grassy hops, a bit of underlying malt sweetness, medium bitterness on the finish but mostly in the aftertaste. Medium body with smooth carbonation. Overall it’s a classic, easy drinking pale ale.

J_man (910) - Tustin, California, USA - MAY 10, 2016
Crystal clear medium golden yellow with a fluffy white head. Lots of pine and dry hay aromas that come through in the taste. Surprisingly light bitterness on the tongue but very dry and grassy as it goes on. This is offset nicely by the lightly sweet honey and light caramel body. Tastes quite light, seems even lighter than the 5.5% ABV. Very refreshing yet still very interesting and tasty.

SeniorZozo (1092) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 7, 2016
Clear amber, modest white head. Huge hop nose, but surprisingly malty start. Very fresh character, with bone dry bitter finish. Gets the job done.
