stevoj (3716) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 18, 2016
Can from Boise Co-op. Pale golden pour with foamy head, fades, but leaves curtains of lacing. Citrusy, piney hops, kind of resinous in the aroma, grapefruit and Pine-sol. Taste had the hops tinge, and a lighter malt bill, again recalling a pils taste. Astringent hops finish though, leaving a slightly soapy taste.

Pine Box, Seattle. During SBW, as ’SBW Session’. Hazy bright yellow, cloudy, creamy white foam. Lovely pale, great fresh juicy hop. Clean, tasty. Typical pine-citrus mellowing in to cereal grain. Tons of flavor. Delicious and fresh.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazed gold with a medium sized white head. Soft citrus, a touch of grapefruit and again a touch of mango armpit sweat. Medium bodied, big green onion flavor, overwhelming everything else. Big grapefruit through the finish, more of that onion sweat thing on the end.

onceblind (6741) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 22, 2015
Hazy light golden with a rocky white head. Very pungent aroma loaded with hops, with that earthy leafy dry-hopped tone I love, a bit of grassiness, and a stern bit of grapefruit rind. Crisp and light body with a nice flavor of grassy, leafy, grapefruity hops, a wee bit of earthy resin, crisp leafy dry hops, and a pale, crisp, balancing pale malt body. just a hint too pithy and resiny but otherwise quite nice. Could have also used a little bit of a sharper flavor, as it is it tastes just a wee watered.

Capa (2566) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Glowing orange with a firm white head. Quite full of citrus and floral goodness. Flavor is similar to the bright aroma with a light nudge of toasted malt. Very fresh fruit and tropical overall. Quite refreshing. A real nice session brew.
