Canned. No clear date. Pours honey golden, slightly hazy, small off white head, some lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, cherry, fig, super malt bomb. Like a Barleywine. Flavor is yea, malt bomb. It’s a good malt bomb though! Some citrus undertones. Almost slight funk. Probably was pretty good fresh!

mrjaxson (438) - .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 (236) - 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.

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.

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.
