3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Chilled and into tulip. The picture of health in the glass. Misty, deep orange that glimmers in the sun. Frothy, two layered off-white foam holds for the length and manages a thick lace. Bold, piney, passionfruit dominated nose that nudges tropical fruits, camphor and nettles, Chenin grapes, vine clippings and soft perfume. Palate is noticeably sweet on first sip with a yeasty, biscuity caramel coming through on the tip and mid-palate. The swallow is assertively bitter but fades rapidly in the finish. Pine-wood and pot pourri linger. Good, firm body with soft carbonation and a viscous, oily back-end. Toasted malt, bitter, blood orange, passionfruit and just a faint hint of burnt matchsticks hide away in there too. Refreshing stuff, but not overly sessionable. It does sit heavy in the stomach.

Can. Clear medium gold with a huge fluffy white head. Active carbonation and lots of lacing. Aroma is citrus and tropical fruit. Lemon, apricot, pineapple and some wheat-like malt. Apricot shifts up front in the taste with a citrusy finish and solid hop bitterness throughout. Light plasticky funk also persists. Palate is surprisingly creamy with moderate carbonation and a clean finish. Super drinkable and surprisingly complex. Really like it.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is light biscuit, oranges, lemons. A light beer, more citrus, some earth, caramel, zesty lemon peel, banana esters. Pretty nice. Reminds me a bit of Uinta Cutthroat.

12 ounce can into pint glass, canned on 9/27/2013. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden orange color with a 2 finger dense and fluffy white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Spotty foamy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, light pine, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt notes; with solid strength. Taste of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, cracker, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of earthy pine/floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, pear, apple, citrus rind, pine, floral, grass, bread, light caramel, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hop and pale malt flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice pale ale. Good balance and robustness of citrus/earthy hops and pale malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Pale, a little bit hazy colour, medium but inconsistant head. Floral and citrusy, explicit aroma. Dry - which stiffens the bitterness, moderately hoppy. Lively carbonation. Good beer, but not at this cost - for god’s sake.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Appearance: slightly hazy golden / light amber with a medium sized white head. Very nice looking lacing.
Aroma: malty, fruity, notes of citrus. Refreshing, yet a bit too delicate. Was expecting something more intense tbh.
Taste: mostly citrus, resin and grapefruit. Also a bit floral, with some pine notes in the back. Nice malty base. Pineapple finish. Medium, grassy bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied, soft to medium carbonation.
Overall: Very enjoyable, yet a bit "standard" pale ale I guess. Would be better if the ABV was lower, like 4,5%. Still, worth recommending.
