Bottle courtesy of Porcelainbomb (reddit trader). Pours a hazy golden color with sporadic head that fades quickly leaving minimal lacing. Aroma is lemon zest, big sweet malts and bread, and finally some sharp grass. Flavor is an even mix of sweet malt and lemon bitterness followed by a big dose of bitter hops that diminishes into a clean aftertaste. Palate is quite heavy for this style as the beer actually sits and weighs on the tongue and with the minimal carbonation this feeling increases. Overall, this is a strange pale almost like a Pilsner/Pale hybrid based on the flavors that come through with the strong Pils bready malts mixing so much; also the bitterness is almost off-putting as it doesn’t do well with the sweetness and almost turns an off sour. I would like to try one fresh to compare but it’s barely above average for me.

A decent pale ale. Pours a cloudy yellow with a thick soapy white head. Smells of lemon. Taste is simple but refined, with lemon and herbs, and a hint of tropical fruit. Had on tap at the brewery.

At the HofD brewery in Portland-USA. Tap. Hazy dark gold color, off-white head with retention. Nose: the best combination of malts and hops ever. Sweet resin in a medium Amber scented maltiness. Great. Mouth: little carbo, bitterness is balanced and that mild sweet HotD signature. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
