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.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 9, 2013
In short: A very bitter fruity/citrusy pale APA for hopheads.
How: Can 12oz. Consumed fresh a week after receiving it from oakbluff, thanks a lot Scott.
The look: Clear golden-orange body topped by a persistent small off-white head.
In long: Nose is bright and fresh fruity hops with mandarins coming out strong along with some tropical and exotic fruits. Taste has pleasant honeyed cereals, a lots of hop-related fruity flavors, an assertive citrusy bitterness of medium-high intensity, a sharp citric/lemony bite, a bit resinous in the after-taste. Medium body, a bit oily and with a medium carbonation. Overall clean and polished. Very tasty beer, actually if anything this APA is too much of a palate destroyer to be truly sessionnable, most IPAs are less aggressive than this APA. This is a beer I drank a while ago, I’m slowly entering my backlog, I’ve been sober for 14 days now, not consecutive though, here and there in the past 10 years, still pretty impressive imho.

crowderm (382) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2013
This is a really good pale ale. Looks and smells like what you would expect, maybe a little more hop-forward in the nose, but the flavor is outstanding. The real trick here is that they’ve managed to push the upper limits of hoppy bitterness for the style without sacrificing the balance and drinkability I want from a pale ale. Bitter, clean, and refreshing. Excellent brew.

Shared by bhensonb. Pours cloudy golden with a thick beige head and a pine aroma. There is a nice mouthful of bready citrus flavor with a dry finish. Has the taste of a pale ale with more hoppiness.
