COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beer dedicated to hop heads and the brewers favorite. An aggressively hopped American pale ale that is fairly light in color with a noticeable citrus aroma due to late hop additions. The slight bitter finish will keep the hop heads coming back.

It gets an overall 14/20, which is pretty much my go-to rating for a standard hoppy pale ale that doesn’t have anything special about it. It’s good, but there are a lot of very similar brews available for cheaper than $10 for 6, but I still wanted to try it because Fountain Square’s amber and porter were so good.

Sweet bitter not very great. An average brew from fountain square. In general not impressed by their brews. Much better options exist. However nothing is below average either.

mojoman (158) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 30, 2014
Bottle: cloudy and dark amber in appearance. Nose of cider and old fruit but not bad. Tastes like bread and hops but again tastes pleasant. Above solid. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

patrick767 (3584) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 28, 2014
tap at the brewpub on Sep 1, 2013 - Pours copper colored and has ample caramel in the aroma along with some citrus. The flavor is also led by caramel malt and pleasantly accented with citrus. It has a medium body, gentle carbonation, and a moderately bitter finish. Quite good.

ben4321 (4015) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Location: 12 oz bottle from Andy, thanks bud, 1/17/14

Aroma: The aroma has some citrus and floral hops, caramel, toast, and a hint of butter
Appearance: A hazed orange color with a small, frothy, off-white head and heavy lace
Flavor: The flavor is light sweet, and medium-plus bitter, and just a slightly off/buttery finish
Palate: The body is medium, it has a decent feel, average carbonation, and a dry finish
Overall Impression: I thought this one was decent, but there’s just something slightly off that causes the score to dip a bit for me. Not bad though.
