Growler Fill from The Filling Station. This beer reminds me a lot of a light version of their Imperial IPA. It’s definitely a pale ale but leans ever so closely to an IPA. Big piney tropical notes on the nose, very hoppy aroma for a pale. Taste follows... lots of papaya, tropical fruit, bananas, and a semi-sweet malt back. Absolutely awesome pale ale.

RedSox2004 (1200) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Clear, pure gold, with a two-finger head and very nice lace. Aromas of sharp citrus hops - grapefruit with a touch of orange and lime - peppery spice and a pale malt background. Bitter hops up front is eventually offset with a gentle pale malt sweetness, but the bitterness is shighlight throughout. Medium to full body, gnerous carbonation, super smooth and creamy mouthfeel, and a wonderful crisp bitter finish.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, white head with some lacing, over a clear amber (SRM 10) body......nose is pine, citrus, slightly dusty, cereal, light herbs, no esters, balance to the hops.....taste is cereal, light sweetness, pine, resin, citrus peel, leading to a moderate lingering simple, slightly harsh bitterness.....mouth feel, body light of medium, mild astringency, no alcohol, finishing with a soft carbonation. The hop bitterness is dominant over the floral hop characteristics, and the malt backbone. An adjustment in the hop backbone would make for a more balanced and better beer. BJCP 7/3/11/4/6

AirForceHops (2939) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 28, 2014
650 ml bottle purchased @ Downtown Discount Beverage, Dover, NH. The color is a clear gold with an amber hue. Lasting retention in a shaker glass. Aroma is close to an IPA, big citrus and pine notes. The body is medium with a crisp finish that ends clean. No bottle date or code anywhere to be found but it must be a fresher bottle. This strattles the line of an IPA. Large bright hop profile. Nice.

theisti (3175) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Shaker pint draft at Tryst in Delray Beach, Florida. The pour is mostly clear copper golden with a ½ inch off white head. The aroma is fresh grass and lightly herbal hop along with a soft resin and a bit of grain cracker malt. The taste is the same balance of the nose - grass herbal resin hop with grain cracker malt. The palate is light to medium bodied with active carbonation and a dry grass finish along with some mineral and earth. Solid, worked nice with the tacos I was eating.

Bottle from Belmont. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A big nose dominated by marmalade, some lemons. A smooth beer, medium bitterness, grainy, a bit of lemon zest, orange peel, floral at times, resinous hops, tea-like. Quite drinkable and good. Lots of green leafy hop flavors.
