Bad bottle.Infected. Smells like Heineken, tasted like rotten grapefruit. Had to drainpour this, shame as it looked real pretty in the glass. May re-rate a known good sample someday-but right now I’m kinda pissed that I wasted $6.99.

Tap at the brewery. Pours lightly hazy pale yellow with a medium, frothy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is citrus and dank hops, light cereal malt and melon esters. Flavor is moderate dank and citrus hops and bitterness, cereal malt, melon esters and a dry finish. Light body and medium carbonation.

hazy light gold short lasting big foam. Aroma gassy sulfurous grassy hops, dough, lemons. Tastes funky dusty like there’s bretta. grassy hops. strange light carb. lots of yeast almost belgian flavors. American belgo pale ale. odd hybrid. Right amount of bitter to sweet. I would drink this again at least twice.

Hazy golden pour, soapy head that vanishes quickly. Aroma is citrus, same as the taste, I would say grapefruit. Bitterness by hops and grapefruit is strong, if you don’t like bitter flavours don’t drink this. For me is quite good.

I must of had a bad bottle, straight up skunk aroma, pineapple juice appearance, andwatered down skunk water taste. To give a fair rating I need another bottle? But for now this was bad.

Impaled with hops. Nelson use was fantastic, really bitter hop bitter not astringent bitter. Somewhat one dimensional, but that’s what was intended when I bought it. Older bottle but still had huge spicy hops all way through.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Burgundian. Pours crystal clear pale yellow with very thin lacy white head. Aroma is earthy, oaky dry pale malt with light vinous note on the back. Taste is crisp clean light pale malt, dry and earthy grassy hops on the finish. Very light and dry and thin for a pale ale, but quite drinkable and pleasant. Plenty of flavor here regardless.

Bottled. Not sure what went wrong here but poured a dirty yellow and was a mouthful of astringent grapefruit. Couldn’t finish.
