Brewing the drink of knowledge and inspiration was too much for Talisen, without dipping his fingers to taste. A radiant pale ale, this brew is intended to be the beer of connoisseurs.

Spoke with the brewer regarding this beer. I dont recall the exact percentage he gave on this one, but I know it was in the mid to high 8% range. He states itís an APA with mostly Amarillo used. 3-4 oz draught sample. Very sweet, fruity bouquet. Lots of citrus orange in the nose. Transparent copper color with not much of a head. I thought I tasted a lot of "C" hops in the start. This is extremely dry with a big grapefruit taste. Smooth finish. This is a little too dry and too strong for my palate.

From a growler. Copper color, not much head but to be expected. Hoppy nose, balanced well with the fruity malt backing. Medium bodied. Pretty tasty, Iíd probably drink again but the odds of me doing that arenít so good.

Lightish nose (or maybe its the fact that Iím having this at a bar that allows smoking) A bit of lemon, toasted malt. Nice bitterness with a toasty, nutty finish.
