Can shared by a friend. Pours a clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma of earthy, oniony and piney hops with some malt. Malty flavor with a bitter earthy hop finish. Seems like they did fine with aroma and bittering hops, but didn’t do much on the flavor hop.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Smells like floral hops with some grapefruit, even grape. Colour is blond hazy, good lacing. Good head retention. Taste has more hops and fruitiness. Faint but not unpleasant sourness. This beer is wonderful - a great, original pale ale, so much more than the standard hops and malt standard. Among the better APAs I’ve tasted. On cask at Castro’s Lounge.

Bottle: Poured a medium copper color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of floral and lightly bitter hops is interesting. Taste is also dominated by some notes of floral and bitter hops with traces of pines and a decent caramel malt backbone. Body is about average with good carbonation. Missing some hops but still very drinkable.

473ml can. Minimally cloudy golden to amber colour with average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Caramel malty aroma, citrusy hoppy overtones, hints of grapefruit and pine. Taste is bitter hoppy, citrusy, notes of grapefruit, a touch of lemon, caramel malty background with a biscuity touch; super soft palate, fairly lasting crisp bitter hoppy finish. Clean, precise, superb soft mouth-feel.
