Thank you Adam for shipping me this want. I poured the can into a Sam Adams glass it gave off a wonderful big white head that sat on top of a clear golden colored elixir. The hop presence hits you first in the nose. You get a ton of citrus and resin character coming right at you, not much in the way of malts at all. In the taste it reminded me of an IPA so I think if you are looking for a balanced brew this isnít for you but if you are looking for a hop bomb I highly recommend it. It had a good amount of carbonation so was light and crisp in the mouth. To me this would be a great summer BBQ brew if it was local and available that is

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught pint at The Rock in Beloit, WI, August 29th. Clear pale amber verging on gold, with a thickish lasting creamy head...nose is faint lemon-piney, grows slightly more distinct with warmth to include a vague herbal character (thyme, rosemary)....barely a hint of sweetness throughout, very dry with a strong citric acidity throughout, woody, slightly resinous hops dominating the whole taste...slightly watery but decent enough body, moderate to strong carbonation. A disappointment given itís reputation for sure; I didnít actually even finish it, not that it was that bad, but what was the point? The Surly Todd I had before this was too sweet, this was too dry, I guess like Goldilocks I should have had a third beer that was "just right" but alas didnít have the time.

Draft at Good Beer. Good pale ale. Fresh grains. Some pleasant sweetness in the aroma, and a little acidity. Not especially exciting but could be a good session brew.

16 oz can poured at home to a can glass. Glass seems half the size of the tall boy can, but itís been proven. They are pint glasses. Amazing. Thanks to luttonm for gifting this can. Pours dense cloudy orange color with a mountain of cone foam head. Hop centered aroma, with a pleasant invitation. Mild sweet malt, juicy hops, cool, low bitter finish. With the name and illustrations, I expected a total floral bomb going on here, but itís not the headliner here. Iíd guess more of an orange peel soft bitter over a floral bitter. All adds up to be a refreshing pale, that rivals some of the hop heavy delicious pales here in the NW. If accessible, I would totally get on board with this one. Very nice beer here.

Can from Chicago, consumed in Seattle. Almost clear yellow-gold, small soapy foam. Fresh, but also quite biscuit malty. Pale, drying bitter. Tart bitter hop but robust cardboard malt body. Drying bitter finish. Robust but not a great profile.
