Canned. Extra sent in trade with my buddy pantanap. Thanks Kan! Hazy light golden color with a small white bubbly head. Light aroma of butter and pine needles, with cereal malt underneath. Good strength bitterness in flavor, flavor a bit lacking. Bitterness is all I really get here. Tasty, and easy drinking.

UPDATED: MAR 20, 2012 On tap at quay in Chicago, big citrus flavors, pale Malta, light finish. Tasting some tropical fruits in there, simcoe or citra, not sure but it works well.

Ported from BA. Appearance: Holy head. Bubbled up too fast to finish the pour. 3 1/2 fingers of white head with HUGE bubbles. Fat bubbly lacing too. It actually makes the top of the glass look kind of messy, since it doesnít dissipate evenly. The beer itself is orange and has a bit of a haze to it. Smell: Hoppy grapefruit scents pour out of the glass. There is a sweetness behind it that really reminds me of the scent of a double IPA over all, and not a pale ale. The scent is just super powerful. Taste: As much as the scent is reminiscent of a DIPA, the taste is distinctly different. Much less sweet than the smell leads one to believe, and a mild bitterness. Dry grapefruit is the big taste here, with a surprising pale malt depth. Mouthfeel: A thin body with medium carbonation. The grapefruit flavor really sticks to your cheeks. Overall: I would love to have this with a burger, or in a hammock. Maybe both? It definitely has a summer feeling to it. Overall, itís a highly drinkable pale ale that I can definitely enjoy.

Hoppy, grassy and excellent right out of the can. Drank 3 pints and felt just fine the next day. Smooth drinking, with just enough booze to balance things out. Cheers!

As far as pales go itís tough to beat this one. Mostly clear gold. Aroma of floral and herbal hops, orange peel, grass. Taste of sweet fruit, grain and lightly bitter hops. Medium body, soft carbonation.

16 oz. can. Pours a hazy golden amber color with a large white head. The aroma is typical of PNW hop goodness: citrus, pine and grapefruit. There is a fruit juice type character as well. The flavor has the citrus, grapefruit and hints of pine with a bready type malt in the background. This is decent, but I donít think the flavor was as pronounced as the nose.

porterhouse (1581) - Boothbay, Maine, USA - SEP 24, 2011
(16 oz. can via trade with pantanap, thanks Kan!) Pours hazy light gold-orange with a stiff and sticky off-white head per all the hops. Straight up super-hoppy aroma of pine and grapefruit. Mouthfeel is smooth but thin. Flavor of grapefruit-citrus and pine overlaying barely-there vanilla and caramel. Big bitter bite at the end and a bitter aftertaste. Hop assault.

pours golden with a nice white head. Aroma is citrus and floral hops. Flavors is about the same. Hints of grapefruit as well. Has a nice crisp, but bitter finish. One of my top APAs.

Thanks to Brophmonster for the 3 day old 4 pack. Talk about freshies!!! Hazy gold pour with a fluffy whiye head and drippy/spotty lace. Aroma is defintely hop forward. Bitter, citrus, and light caramel. Very Good. If I had to choose I would go w/ Galactic Daisy Cutter tho
