I’m not ashamed to admit I had it straight from the can, @ the NK Wielrennen in Ootmarsum. Firm oily grapefruit-like hopflavor. Long earthy, almost plastic aftertaste. Grapefruity hoparomas. Thin to medium bodied. Bone dry with a long aftertaste. Tart and pleasant.

Can from jrallen34. A canned pale ale rating in the high 90s? Thanks for this one guy!!! Popped the top and had a real foamer. Quickly to the glass for a four finger off-white head that did exotic foamy things. The aroma is like a NW IPA. Med+ body. Flavor is lots of citrus and floral hop over a roasted malt. Hop wins!!! This is good stuff. The bitter is not harsh, but it’s really bitter. Brilliant!

16 ounce can pours a deep golden yellow had a huge white head that retained really well. Had a great aroma of hops, floral notes, and citrus. Its very light and refreshing, a really good APA.

Thanks to jrallen. Pours a thick foamy head that subsides pretty quickly with minimal lacing. Cloudy orange brown. Nice floral aromas with a little honey after it warms. Hoppy bitterness but needs more malt for a fuller mouth feel. Some mild but unattractive ’wheaty’ elements. Mostly mid palate. Decent not great.

Can from bauermj. This is my first beer from this brewery and if this is a good representation of the rest of their lineup then I want to try more! The aroma is bright and citrusy; a real nice floral and citrus hop scent here. A little catty as well. This is crisp, refreshing, and fairly bitter for a Pale. The flavor, again, is very citrusy and floral, like a bunch of oranges, lemons and wild flowers. Dry finish with a note of pine and lots of lingering citrus. Light caramel malt lends support but I really like the fact that this is fairly light in the body without a ton of thickening malt getting in the way. This is one of the better Pale Ale’s I’ve had and it definitely has that West Coast feel to it. I could drink a lot of this is the summer. Thanks Matt!

Crushed at GABF ’10. This is possibly the most floral beer I have ever had. It’s like being out in the middle of a field, except it’s beer, which makes it better. Tasty, refreshing, and awesome.

Drank a few of these over the weekend. A: Wonderful cloudy and I think unfiltered there are a lot of "floaties" in here along with a perfect level of carbonation. This beer just looks mouth watering! S: Very citrusy and floral. T: BAM! as Emerald would say, Wonderful hop character really fresh and refreshing, I can’t pinpoint the taste I was getting but I loved it! O: This was a great surprise to me. I am normally not too big on IPAs and DIPAs but this beer just really opened my eyes to the style and its also the perfect lawn mowing beer.

Can from the very generous CanIHave4Beers. Pours slightly hazy deep golden with a big white head. Lighter than expected. Nose is a great bouquet of hops backed up by sweet caramel malts. Fresh grass, floral notes, citrus. Mild resin. So refreshing and yet so light. This is a great beer.

Fresh citrus, little grass, medium bitterness, average carbonation, long finish. I’m lucky I still have three more in my fridge!

16oz can from douglas88, thanks
Appearance: Pours slightly hazy golden with a big frothy white head and lots of sticky lacing as it slowly dissipates so can get a drink
Aroma: Tropical fruits, grassy, citrus and some sweet caramel
Taste: Fruity, grapefruit and nice pine bitterness in the finish
This is a great APA. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Wish I had a few (lot) more of these.
