nuplastikk (4908) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Growler from the brewery. Quite steady off-white head. Filtered. The simcoe and citra description got me hyped, but this is pretty much a classic APA at the end of the day, maybe a touch more pronounced hop bill. Good, but kind of standard.

mcberko (8444) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours a clear pale golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out earthy notes and floral hops. Flavour is nicely balanced, with floral hops, earthy notes and a dry biscuity malt backing. Dry, smooth and drinkable. Solid pale ale.
