Bottle. Pours a hazy orange with minimal head and lacing. Wonderful aroma of strong hops. A well balanced strong hop taste expected from an IPA but delivered in this Pale. Solid!

16 oz can, thanks Ryan. Lightly hazy amber-yellow; frothy white head; huge lacing. Aroma grapefruit, pineapple, musty florals, bread, pepper. Flavor is similar to aroma, and in addition there might be a hint of pine resin in here as well; finish is pretty dry. Mouthfeel is medium and closer to frothy than to fizzy. Glad that this is a well-regarded beer without being over-the-top bitter; it’s actually quite a lot better balanced and a lot less bitter than I’d expected. This is certainly no 99th percentile beer overall, but a top example in the style for sure.

Tap at pizano's. pour is nice and great color. Head lingers a bit and is dirty white. Heavy hop and oil Nose. Super aggressive hop bitterness and little if any sweetness to balance it out. Has a strange earthy component but decent floral undertones.

16oz. Can gratis Mark, thanks! Pours pale orange with good lacing. Heavy oily hop grass aromas mixed with citrus. Crisp earthy flavors, a little forward on the bitterness, I still like the balance. Hops follow into the finish, making it refreshing and somewhat dry. Very drinkable!

On tap @ Wells on Wells. Pours slightly cloudy golden orange with thin head. Aroma is thin malt and big juicy fresh hops. Taste is clean light caramel malt with nice bitter hoppy finish. Plenty of fresh hops, grapefruit, and light pine. Really good and flavorful for a pale ale.

Can from brewery. The aroma was not quite everything I hoped for; good, but it didn’t knock my socks off. The taste, however, did. Beautifully perfectly balanced sweet malts fruity American hops and IBUs. Terrific stuff.

#1900! Exceptional APA! The Daisy Cutter poured a dark straw color with a small white head. The head left some nice, sticky lacing around the glass, though. The flavors right up my alley, dry and spicy! I tasted quite a bit of grapefruit, lemon and pine. The body was balanced very nicely with a touch of caramel malt and bread. Outstanding APA!
