4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler: Golden-yellow body, bright, vibrant, translucent. Topped with a soapy & foamy white head that settles nicely as a chunky collar. Aroma explodes with generous notes of pine, citrus zest, orange peel, grapefruit rind, bitter alpha oils, hop resin, & a touch of back-end dankness. Very little, if any, pale malt character. This is ALL hops on the nose. Lovely interplay between the Amarillo & Simcoe, too. Crisp little bitterness up front with each sip. Pines, leaves, grapefruit pith balances with juicier orange flesh. Hints of lemon zest, hop oil, a slight kick of bready yeast & a faint touch of pale biscuit malt left lingering with the citrus remains in the finish. Crisp, semi-dry body. Fantastic pale ale. Great balance between the bitter piney elements of Simcoe & the juicy, citric elements of Amarillo with just enough malt body to fulfill its purpose, yet remain light & refreshing. Stunning!

Sam’s bottle share...small snifters. Pours a semi-cloudy gold with a nice fluffy pillow head. Aroma is pine and light citrus with cereal and wheat. The taste is really well balanced with a wonderful hop profile of citrus and pine, but very smooth and nuanced. Finish is hoppy for a pale ale. Very very good.

On tap at the brewery on 21. June 2014. Standing two hours in line. Big thank you to Russel for his patience and driving. Tastes not so far away from Edward but more yeasty in my opinion. Delicious.

Hazy yellow with a big white head. Grapefruit and lemon aromas lead into a light and friendly hop flavor. One of my favorite hop combinations. Finish lingers with the tart citrus flavors. Well done.

On tap at the brewery. Milky pale yellow pour with a white head. Sweet citrus and fruity hop aromas. Citrusy hop notes dominate with undercurrents of pine. Good balance with a somewhat understated malt presence. Good body and mouthfeel.
