“I am glad to have drunk water so long, for the same reason that I prefer the natural sky to an opium-eater’s heaven. I would fain keep sober always; and there are infinite degrees of drunkenness. I believe that water is the only drink for a wise man; wine is not so noble a liquor; and think of dashing the hopes of a morning with a cup of warm coffee, or of an evening with a dish of tea! Ah, how low I fall when I am tempted by them! . . . Of all ebriosity, who does not prefer to be intoxicated by the air he breathes?” - Thoreau, Walden.

And yet. September 1, 2012.

Pours a cloudy canary yellow with one finger of white head. The bubbles accumulate in the middle of the glass, forming something like a small hill of elevated head.

Clean citrus sweetness, citrus pith, tropical fruit sweetness, faintly grassy, with some light biscuit malt character. Very aromatic, highlighting the lemony citrus.

Soft maltiness—biscuity, wheaty—with some of the same clean citrus found on the nose. Just a hint of earthy bitterness on the finish, but without any real bitter bite, thankfully. Juicy melon.

Medium, medium light in body, fantastically balanced APA. I’d trade some green beans for it.

750 mL growler. Unknown original review date. Hazy with a white head. Yellow/orange body. Very wispy. Smells of grapefruit hops, just like Life without Principle #1, but more of an earthy pine hop presence. Pale malt is also more prevalent, which is strange considering this should be less malty. Taste is grapefruit hops and that same touch of earthy pine. More pale malts again than its other blonde cohort. Even a touch of bitterness to this one. Light, more body and bitterness than Life without Principle #1, which I don’t get. Not quite as easy to drink, though. Good. Very nice for a blonde ale. Light in body but still has a good hop bite to it. Impressive as always.

Scopey (10041) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2015
Tap at Farmhouse Tap & Grill. It pours cloudy gold with a decent white head. The nose is soft, juicy, fragrant, tropical fruits, grass and cracker. The taste is crisp, bitter, clean, minerals, grassy, grapefruit rind, pithy lemon and pine with a dry finish. Light - medium body and fine, foamy carbonation. Crisp, clean and crushable. Not big and showy, just very well-made and sessionable.

Taste is crisp, soft, light doughy malt with juicy lemon, citrus, tropical fruit, grass. Finishes dry, balanced bitterness, light cracker and dough with juicy tropical fruits. Awesome!

Dégustée en fût chez Parker Pie. Ohhhhhh que cette bière ricaneuse et éclatante est facile à boire! Le liquide est non filtré et bien voilé sous une couche de mousse éclatante et onctueuse formée de grosses bulles insistantes! Ces magnifiques bulles sont éternelles et collent sur mon verre avec une énergie et une volonté rares! C’est magnifique à voir. Nez de jeunes grains délicats mais surtout de houblons bien citronnés et légèrement gazonneux. Peut-être ma bière fut-elle servie trop froide, mais même en se réchauffant, le caractère olfactif de cette bière n’est pas remarquable. Dès son entrée en bouche, cette bière dévoile un côté très punché dans une singulière légèreté. Le houblon est vert, citronné à la limite d’être chloré. C’est court, frais, printanier et aérien. Aucun arrière-goût, juste du bonheur! Du gros petit jus mon DS!

On tap at the brewery. Cloudy yellow pour with a big white head. Citrusy/florally hop bouquet. Big taste for the low ABV. Florally hop notes dominate. Good body and mouthfeel.

bytemesis (5195) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
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.

WillemsUrenkel (1080) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - JUL 13, 2014
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.
