Thx Ferris! Bright cloudy yellow gold. Grains, lemon, earthy, plenty of lemon, very nice. Flavour is a bit weak - mellow brew , soft malty stuff, lemon, earthy, some biscuit. This subtle brew is really enjoyable to drink so muh so that I almost wish the bare minimal bitterness didn’t exist.

Bottle to tulip
Light sour citrus, wheat, spruce and grass.
Pale cloudy yellow and a creamy white head.
Taste is grass, lemon, and a little bitterness. Enjoyable, but a little too grassy.

Great sessionable drink. Smooth, finish with hints of the caramel coming through. Hops that were added were floral with hints of citrus. Not a mind blowing pale, but is going to be revisited often with this limited release.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle - 2012 Nice lemon grass and citrus aroma. Clear pale orange with an awesome thick head that looks like it will last forever. Lots of grass and lemon, much like I expected from this style. A mild bitterness that fades nicely. This is very comparable to Deschutes Chasing Freshies but much better in my opinion. Great mouth feel as well. 2013 Leafy vegatal hops with some light lemon. Clear gold with a thin bubbly white head. Leafy hops, light but great. A very light sessionable IPA, probably the best fresh hop this year.

Bottle pours a hazy deep golden with a thin white head. Scent is citrus and bread. Taste is biscuits and a touch of lemon. Will try again when fresh in September.

Sample at the brewery. The bartender said they had found a few extra kegs and put it back on in February. Still had very fresh tasting hops. A very nice pale ale. Amber. Nice head.

22oz bomber pours clear deep gold with semi loose off white head. The modest aroma has some spicy hops, earthy to slightly dank hops as well as a bit of citrus like lemon to lime notes. The taste is similar with some spicy to earthy to dank like hoppiness that have both bittering hop and hop flavor going for them. Around those notes are lesser amounts of floral hops, some malt graininess, stale sort of organic malts and a yeastiness that seems to pull this apart rather than add to the experience. Regardless this is a decent product.
