3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
On draught at Slattery’s Irish Pub in the DTC
Poured into 12oz Great Divide Snifter. Golden straw color with high clarity and nice pillowy head. Super floral scent with waves of pine, mint and herbs. Taste is much lighter than the nose would lead on. Light cereal grain and subtle citrus bittering. Mouthfeel is slightly prickely from the CO2. Really good lawnmower type beer.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled on date of Oct. 5, 2012. Pours with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly. Very perfumy aroma with a little fruit and some slight malt hiding in the background. Brilliantly clear with a great dark amber/light copper color. Taste is medium-low hop flavor and bitterness with a grassy/resinous character and a peppery finish. Malt is lower than expected for a beer of this color, but holds its own against the fairly subtle hops. While this beer is fairly malty, some additional malt sweetness (not just maltiness) would have been enjoyable. Mouthfeel is fairly dry. Overall, this is a well-crafted beer, but additional malt sweetness would have helped more satisfyingly balance the resinous, peppery finish of 55 IBUs of wet hops.

Dark gold. Nose is small with a hint of stone fruit and grass. Great mouthfeel. Finish is singing to me. The hops are crisp and well defined. Clean grass and underripe peaches. Very nice.

On draft at Great Divide. Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is vegetal hops, some almost tomatoes, herbs, and mild green citrus. Flavor is mild malt, vetegal qualities, some herbs, and green citrus. Light in body and green citrus in the finish. Ok overall, but not my favorite fresh hop.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a fairly thick white head. Nose is very clean and hoppy, almost like it’s attempting to clean a beer palate. Little hoppy taste, but very light and clean.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep copper color on tap with thin tan head and great lacing. Aroma is that fresh hop, piney, zesty, earthy, awesome. Taste follows with a nice malty backbone and bitter tongue. Great pale ale.
