mrjaxson (417) - .08 Junction, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 30, 2015
Exactly as advertised, Grind Line is an extremely well-balanced pale ale with the hops and malts exchanging prominence throughout the imbibing process. Both grapefruit and caramel are present in the aroma and the finish is both sweet and bitter, though neither in great amounts. Very tasty. Poured from a tall boy can.

Lutz2jm (220) - North Carolina, USA - AUG 29, 2015
Good hoppy pale ale. Malt notes up front lead to a mild hop finish that leaves your mouth slightly dry wanting more.

jksipa (636) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - APR 29, 2015
Flight at the tap room. Clear medium amber with a good sized white head that lingers. Light toffee and pine with some floral notes. Light malt base supporting a medium bitter middle that fades through the finish. Medium- mouth with average carbonation.

blackflag321 (592) - Lansing, Michigan, USA - MAR 12, 2015
Several from the can and poured to shaker or pint. Good basic working man’s APA I drink because it’s reasonably priced and brewed not far away.

czar (6511) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
can. pours hazy if not cloudy very pale golden with a small off-white cap, some retention and lacing. cascadian spicy oranges and other c’s, pepper and pine, earthy undertones, candied oranges and other fruity notes, clean yeast. light carbonation, light body, balanced yet assertive grassy-spicy-peppery-grapefruity finish. simple (not linear) slightly underhopped apa with classic c’s. nicely crafted - nothing off. quenching.

Ferris (9776) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 12, 2014
Draft - Pale malts, light hops and some biscuit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Biscuit, hoppy bitterness and a pale malt sweetness. The sweetness and dry finish don’t work for me.
