COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A hard-rocking sly session ale (easy drinking) that smacks the lips with tasty bitter hops and citrusy grapefruit shots to the nose. It finishes crisp and dry, sustaining like a windmill power chord. All of a sudden it hits you...this is the one.

Surprisingly unique hops taste. Somewhat like melon and tropical fruit. Really refreshing and unique

Caramel malt aroma, with some hop notes. Pours a slightly hazy amber with a thin white head. Mild hop flavor, with a touch of grapefruit in the finish. Thin bodied, with a very short bitter finish. Not a bad APA, but nothing out of the ordinary.

4 String Pale ale on draft at Miller's Ale House Restaurant in Columbus, oh Appearance - nice light amber color. Very clear and see through. Light, quickly dissipating head. Nose - not much to speak of. Flavor - Good, light hops very refreshing 'lite' hop flavor like you'd expect for a pale ale. No particular hop flavor stood out. Notes - Good overall drinker. Enjoyable on a nice hot summer day, and I'll bet a cool fall day as well. I'd call it a good 'table' beer. Great with a meal, but nothing special for a 'tasting'.

Pours a clear light gold with a white head. Medium spruce hops with sugary malt. Medium to heavy bitter that doesn’t stick around. Medium body with a sticky texture.

12 ounce can. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet fruity resin nose. The flavor is lemons, oranges, tea, resin, mild bitterness, smooth, some caramel. Good.

Shot (166) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - JUL 16, 2014
On tap at Miller’s Ale House. Dark gold color. Thin white head with decent lacing. Aromas of sweet malt and floral hops. Upfront explosion of fresh hops, herbal tones, slight bitter citrus. What’s really noticeable is the long, lingering hop bite. It’s almost too much. Seems like it needs a bit more malt sweetness to balance it out. Fairly dry finish. Medium to light mouthfeel. It has the body of a pale ale, but this drinks like an IPA pale ale. Definitely not bad. I’d like to explore this one again.

nuplastikk (4667) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 10, 2014
12oz can. Hazy golden-orange body. Creamy off-white head. Pretty standard APA. Medium bodied, smooth malt backbone, some resinous murky NW hops. The lack of filtration takes away from any crispness. Not really hyped that I bought a sixpack of this...wouldn’t do it again.

MrBunn (2478) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Can. Pours a clear coppery orange with a thin head. Aromas are malty (almost a honey and dough mix) with a bit of light fruit and flavor is driven by grain dust and a bit of citrus and fruit (but in an awkward kind of way that makes me a bit sad.) It’s an OK beer, but it is pretty standard APA stuff.
