3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler thanks to 50belair! Pours cloudy golden, medium creamy off-white head with great staying power and nice lacing. Aroma is rich dank grapefruit, passionfruit, pine. Flavor is not quite up to aroma, but still nice, quite light sweet, light bitter, juicy, not harsh. Light body, soft on the palate, a bit watery.

On tap at the brewery on 21. June 2014. Standing two hours in line. Big thank you to Russel for his patience and driving. Unclear pale orange in the glass, small foamy head. Sweet fruity at the nose. Starts with a lot of fruity sweetness, scratchy. Low bitterness. Too sweet in my opinion.

Growler thanks to Seth. Pours a cloudy yellow with small frothy white head. The aroma is strong pine, resin hop. Thin mouthfeel with nice light bitter hop, and a bit watery and easy to drink, very impressive.

Growler. Very nice pale ale. Not enough bitterness or aggressive use of hops to be an session ipa. It is more of just a pale ale. Delicate floral aroma, very balanced. Good stuff.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Quelques verres, de growlers. Arômes invitants de houblons américains (agrumes, résine, touche végétale). Robe blonde pâle et trouble, effervescence moyenne et légère dentelle. En bouche, les houblons très aromatiques (surtout agrumes, conifères et résine) sont appuyés par une base maltée svelte mais développant de belles notes de céréales. Finale très sèche et moyennement amère. Essentiellement une version légère de Edward.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
2oz pour at the brewery. Pours a hazy light gold, with some thin white head. Nose packs a huge punch, bright chive and scallion and garlic scape, bright pine, perfume, herbs, grapefruit, lemon, floral, zesty. Very inviting. Flavor follows right along, big punchy citrus zest, bright onion patch, scallion, chive, scape, grapefruit zest, orange zest, even a little bit of lime, dried pine, only the faintest hint of sweetness to round things out. Dry, zesty finish. Incredible. Packs an incredible amount of flavors for a beer coming in at 4%.

Draft. Pours murky yellow with thin white head that lingers. Mild citrus aroma over light carbonation. Light session ipa with some complexity.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is a pale hazy yellow with a bubbly white head. Nose is balanced, bready and light dough with fresh grain notes. Hops are soapy and citrusy afterwards. Taste is strongly balanced leaning towards the grain and malt bill. Bread, fresh grain, balanced hop, faint soapy, balanced citrus hop, gentle bitterness. Carbonation is great, body is light and airy with a semi dry finish. Could be a bit brighter but darn this is drinkable and balanced. Wish I had a keg every Saturday to day drink for hours.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a hazy straw color with some head and some lacing on the glass.
The aroma is hop forward and citrusy with some juicy melon, & bright orange/orange-peel character. Really fresh and pungent, really nice smelling.
The flavor is again very fruit forward, citrusy with plenty of melon. It’s got some fruit rind character and a nice light bitterness. Very bright, very hoppy... not especially complex but that’s made up for by it’s brightness and charm.
A real chill low boost & not a shelf beer at all.
