Color is a golden haze with thick white head. Lots of lacing on the glass. Smells of grapefruit and lemon some malt. Excellent dry taste and finish, slightly sweet on the front end. Just a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can. Pours clear pale with a frothy white head. Aroma is dominated by floral and resiny hops. Flavor has only a bit of a, and is again dominated by hops, resiny, piney and herbal. F labor falls off towards the end, leaving a relatively mild, dry hop bitterness. Light body with a thin mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, some nice hop aromas, but otherwise, nothing noteworthy. Not enough malt character to balance things out.

Canned. 10cl sample. Thanks Menno. The aroma has citrus, some grass and is somewhat herbal. Clear, golden coloured beer with a medium, white head. The taste is light-moderate bitter, has grass, citrus, unions. Refreshing, nice, but a bit too herbal/veggie for me,

An excellent any time beverage. Pairs well with all meals. Sufficiently complex taste.

Emptied this can into a true pint glass. I was greeted by a bright and hazy yellowish orange and a just off-white head. Aromas of sweet fruits like peach and pineapple with a nice hop infusion. Taste is just as pleasant accompanied by fruity notes with just a tint of resin and malt backbone playing along. This is a damn fine Pale, see it, buy it. Gotta make it to the taproom soon.

Pounder can picked up as an extra in a trade with Pmoney over on BA... Nice trade Patrick, thanks for the cool extra. Poured into my standard tulip... 2 finger rises up and sticks around for a while leaving good lace as it drops... fairly clear golden brew. Aromas is citrus and floral hops... pretty clean. Bitterness up front on the palate reminds me of Dandelion brews I have had in the past... hop flavors trail off a little quickly, doesn’t really strike me as "West Coast".. Very drinkable. Light body with good carbonation.

Tap @ Half Acre: Had this from a can plenty of times, but it deserves a draft review. Cloudy, semi-translucent golden color, topped with a clump white head that leaves some nice, chunky lacing on the glass. Lovely, pure & raw aroma with an abundance of fresh hops. Grassy, wet, leafy, with a touch of back-end peppery spice. Could easily be mistaken for a wet-hop beer. So vibrant & clean, like smelling a freshly cut lawn. Hints of mango peel & slight sugar cookie malt for a finishing tropical sweetness. The best word I can think of to describe the taste is "bright". Daisy Cutter is so familiar, yet still stands out from many other pale ales due to its excellent balance & ever present freshness. Grass, wet floral notes, hop leaves, faint white pepper, bitter citrus peel, a touch of mango... Just a great execution. Solid bitterness, but not overdone. There’s no mistaking this for an IPA. Crisp, medium body, finishing mostly dry. Highly drinkable with tons of flavor. Wish this was available in Michigan.
