COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Sometimes you want a beer, then you realize how much crap you need to do before you call it a day. This is it. Nicely dosed with Big, Round Hop Flavors and a Toasty Malt Foundation to satisfy your every need. But it still lets you stay in the game to do what needs to be done. Yup.

Pours clear yellow / light gold with a soapy white head. The aroma has grapefruit, pineapple, funk and pale malt. Its quite dry and very hoppy for a beer less than 5% abv. Medium / light crisp body with a decent amount of fairly soft carbonation for the style. The flavor begins with more balance than the aroma. There is pale cracker-like malt and hops that highlight pine and grapefruit. The finish shows some tropical fruit and is very dry with the malt and the grapefruit pith notes of the hops. Very nicely done.

Clear pour from 12 oz bottle. PRetty serious floral aroma. Light color, minor malts and not as hoppy as scented. A good beer for light session.

Stanley’s Beer Fest 10/6, TAP. Smells good... but faint smell of urine. Upon drinking, more urine aroma. I also get resin, grain, pine hops, and some citrus. Aroma and taste is complex but the body is watery. Not impressed.

Goes to show that you don’t need a big ABV for a really tasty beer. This has a pale yellow pour but don’t be fooled. Take a whiff of the hop goodness to come. The flavor is nicely balanced. Goes down so easy, very dry and refreshing.

Tap: clear light-yellow with small white head. Aroma is grassy and citrus, pine, and cat pee hoppy. Flavor is grass, straw, pine, orange, grapefruit, and a light honey sweetness. Palate has a nice sweetness balancing the hoppy bitter and a somewhat thin body. Nice smooth, flavorful easy drinking beer.

Bottle at home, from my Minneapolis Town Hall glass. Pours deep honey-gold, with a thick, persistent white head, that laces extremely well. Nose is big fresh pine, pineapple, grapefruit, lots to like in the nose here. Flavours of spicy juniper, grapefruit, really makes the mouth tingle. Malt background is perhaps a shade lighter than "appropriate", but I really like how the hops shine through as a result. A thoroughly excellent beer, one that I see buying myself many times in the future.

RedSox2004 (1210) - Pacific Palisades, California, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Clear gold body, bright white head, and very nice lace. Citrusy aroma, mostly grapefruit and orange, with hints of pepper, doughy bread and spices. Crisp hops bitterness accompanied by toasted malts, nuts, leafy greens, and black pepper. Medium body, lively carbonation, and a crisp dry finish.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Pours a clear golden yellow color with a one finger white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring. Spotty lacing left behind. Floral hop aroma with a balance of resinous pine, tropical fruit and pale malt. Spicy hop character with hints of grass, pineapple and lemon peel followed by bread, biscuit and grainy cracker. Medium bodied but fuller than expected with a complex hop profile countered by a pale malt backbone. Some dry, earthy bitterness up front followed by tropical/citrus sweetness. There’s a spicy hop bite with some sticky pine needle flavor countered by hints of pineapple and lemon juice before finishing with biscuity malt. Crisp, refreshing, extremely drinkable and packed with delicious hop flavors. I could drink this all night.
