Pours a clear gold with a white head that lingers with plenty of lace. Smell is pine and hay. Nice citrusy hop bite that quickly smooths out leaving behind fruit and a touch of malty sweetness. A favorite of mine, perfect session APA @ 4.9%

2nd beer tasted at Salone Del Gusto, went the wrong way doing Double Jack first. Pours golden with slight haze, big white head the nose tells you to expect a big pallet with a Pine burst coming through, First sip is big and for a Pale Ale its a big beer. Hop forward and big length. Not bad

Golden color with white short head. Strong aroma of hops. Very bitter, almost covered other tastes. Long bitter finish. Good one but not my type. I must say I like strong IPA more.

7 week old can from mixed 12 into a tulip.
A: Clear slight orange tinted gold with slow bubbles feeding a 1/2" head with fair retention and elaborate patches of lace.
S: Light grapefruit/tangerine scent with a bit of honey.
T: Bitter pith flavor up front. Tart citrus fruit and zest note coming in finishing with a hint of pine and wood. Pith lingers. Great balance of flavors.
M: Crisp and light with stiff carbonation tingle and pithy but fresh clean finish.
O: Very nice in all aspects. Easy recommendation.

There it is, the famous pale 31 had it before and going to rate it now. From the bottle poured into nosing glass. Clear straw coloured with huge white head. Intense grassy herbal nose and light floral citric notes. Taste is intensiv grassy herbal slightly bitter while still floral. All time classic with an original hops Profile that is not that comon in times of super hoppy IPA’s

Yep, like it. Nice appearance, okay aroma but above all good mouthfeel and aftertaste. Fruity in smell, taste and aftertaste.
