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.

Draft at pizza Luce hopkins. Hoppy aroma with grapefruit evident. Murky Amber with a thin ring if head. Some lace. Wonderful citrusy hop flavor with juicy grapefruit. Tons of flavor for a pale ale. Excellent.

Very well done. One to try if you like IPA's. I don't remember much of the specifics of this beer as I am just now getting around to ratting this one.

Orangey tan pour, quick head. Nose is floral (as the label says) with a hint of wood in the background. Bitter. Middle is a nice medium malt backbone, apricots, citrus zest. Finish is bitter and satisfying.

Pours a clear orange-golden color with white head. Citrus fruits, pineapple, and mango on the nose; follows onto the palate. Very fruity. Finishes with a nice smoothness to the hop bite.

Clear orange gold with a small white head. Very orangey. A bit of floral/earthy stand out as well. Aroma is especially nice. Quite dry. Light bitterness. I like it.

Bottle to tulip
Grapefruit, pineapple, pine, grass, and perfume aroma. Pours a slightly hazy yellowish amber with a 2 cm frothy head with moderate retention and a little lacing. Taste is grapefruit, pine, hop resin, and a little orange and a long lasting bitterness.

Bottle - Nearly clear gold with frothy white head. Nice powerful hoppy, juicy fruity, piney aroma. Taste, yes could be an IPA, fruity, citrus hops, sweet malts. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, nice dryness, nice long bitter finish. My sort of APA.
