Growler filled at Big Z and consumed two days later. Pours a hazy dull gold with a thin-moderate linen white head that lasted through the first two sips and left light lace. Very pleasant aroma of fresh Cascade hops that is filled with flowers, light spice, grapefruit, and fresh pine. The flavor is malt with a bit of a bready characteristic followed by some citrusy hops. Mild-moderate bitterness that lingers briefly beyond the swallow. Solid pale ale.

On tap, tried this fresh out of the tanks. Poured a murky brown with slight white head. Taste was quite good....very hoppy, somewhat nutty as well. Not a ton of carbonation in it at the time, probably because it was so new. Quite good...just a solid pale ale...Iíd love to have this again.

Draught. At Coleís, Buffalo, NY. Cloudy orange pour with an average lasting off-white draught head. Mildly floral sweet grain aroma, generic and a bit dry. The taste is quite solid - fresh cereal grain, not too sweet, a nice dry leafy bitterness balances it out. Average body, carbonation and linger - nothing special, but a great quaffer - the sum is greater than the parts, I would have this again in a heartbeat - well above their usual offerings.
