Pours a cloudy orange with a fluffy white (And I mean pure white head). Lacing is perfectly distributed. Notes of pine, grass and grapefruit. Silky smooth almost like it was poured on nitro. Palate is slightly watery.

Had a few times over the week. Probably just easiest to read other peoples reviews. Fairly juicy and bitter but also extremely balanced. Grapefruit, citrus, cracker, a bit grainy.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2014 Golden peach colour. Aroma is fruity and very aromatic - lovely smell. Taste is oh so fruity for a pale ale; lovely. Nice hop resin on finish for an American Pale. Overall great American pale ale.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Cask at NERAX 2013, draught at Three Penny Taproom and Pro Pig, 3/15 and 3/16/14
The cask sample of this was just stunning. Wonderfully hoppy and beautifully bright and clear. Light malt sweetness and a touch of light caramel add just enough balance and character to prevent this from being just a mouthful of hops. Not that it’s too acidic by any means. Tons of simcoe juiciness, with all kinds of citrus complexity from all the C-hops. Soft and supple on the palate with no alcohol or flaws.
The draught versions seemed a little less "juicy" and soft, with more hop bitterness apparent. Probably the increased carbonation levels (and both draught samples were rather hazy, adding some dullness from the sediment). Still, like Susan, this manages a ton of hop flavor with very little fatigue from the acids. Deliciously dry and clean, of course.

Cloudy light golden with two fingers of soapy white head. On the nose there is citrus, pine, earthiness. The taste follows well in suit. One of the best APAs out there. Glad I finally got to try it.

UPDATED: FEB 10, 2014 Ce qui définit cette divine bière est son équilibre, autant dans le dosage de ses composantes que dans son goût. Trouble, dorée et mousseuse à souhait, la Edward a toutes les qualités de ce que doit être une bonne bière de soif : une bonne amertume gracieuseté du houblonnage généreux qui procure des saveurs herbacées, fruitées et épicées, et un goût de céréales bien présent pour soutenir le tout. Très très bonne bière!

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour is hazed pale golden amber with a perfectly tight white head. Nose is huge hop, well balanced pale malt and grain bill with notes of weed and a strong citrus punch. Taste is a touch more balanced, very drinkable. Grain bill is more pronounced with a light pale malt. Hops are herbal ad citrusy, grassy notes linger with a very light bitterness, assertive carbonation and a light airy body.
Growler - nose is stronger citrus, orange and peach. Taste also has more hops, some citrus and some fresh fruity green notes, still well balanced grain, clean and fresh. Bitterness is a touch less than I remember.
