COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malts to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taught white head that keeps track of time as you sip. Then there are the hops – four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character that greets you in the nose and embraces your mouth with a clean, crisp bitterness.

Pour from a well designed can. Hazy golden pour with ample white head. Big resin and citrus on the nose. Strong hop character fades into grapefruit bitterness in the aftertaste. Nice pale ale.

Really solid all around Pale Ale here. Easy drinking and the first beer in the night for WBW night. Starts off with a crisp drinkable pale with tons of great citrus hop aroma.

Pours a mildly hazy honey brown with 1 finger head that quickly dissipates with mild lacing. toasted malt and citrusy hops hit you pretty hard up front. Moderately bitter to start and getting more so throughout the finish. Moderate carbonation, medium body and somewhat sticky mouthfeel. This is a fantastic beer. Very bitter for a pale, but i like it. Very hop driven, but balanced pretty well.

Pours cloudy, orange gold with a small, off-white head. Scent is orange peel. Taste is malt, bitter orange, resin. Not much beyond the hops, which are a bit dull feeling.

Pour from a can. Hazy light orange, with a spare white head and very sticky lacing. Nice looking beer. Aroma is big on the marmalade, dank pine resin, a light backing of malt. Light floral and peppery character as well. Taste is all about the hops. Moving from lots of orange and grapefruit peel to softer citrus and finishing with nice lingering pine resin bitterness. Slightly grassy Spritzy carbonation lifts the beer and makes it exceedingly easy to drink. At 5.4%, and packed full of hoppy goodness, I can see myself drinking a lot of this in the summer!

Bottle. Orange malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Lightly sweet orange malt and moderately bitter orange peel/quinine flavor. Okay.

Shared by Steve. I do love me some Minnesota. Need to get up there more often. Any who...the beer looks like a light hoppy beer. Seriously, who cares. That’s not a question. Hoppy and light. Really tasty. Light in body. Mild bitterness. Good citrus quality in both the nose and flavor. Hooray beer. Nice cans baby.

Bottle courtesy of Atom. Sweet tropical fruit, fresh juicy citrus as well as a little rind, bready caramel malt aroma. Hazy honey gold with a large off white head, thick creamy lacing. Flavor very similar to aroma with bready caramel malt, citrus rind, sweet tropical fruit, and some slightly resinous hops. Medium to full body, soft carbonation.
