4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
One of the best pale ale out there, could sub for an IPA for fair weather drinkers.
Beautiful golden orange color with a small white head leaving a good amount of lacing.
Aroma is very fragrant with floral and pine notes. Flavor is similar to nose with a big, bold and brash taste.
A bitter sweet finish, literally.
A good west coast pale.

355ml bottle. Pours bright copper with white head, solid lace. Big spruce hops nose - bigger than a lot of IPAs. Not quite as hoppy in the mouth but enough to tell you these guys are all about hops. Solid and refreshing.

I’ve always been looking for a beer that went well with broccoli. I still haven’t found one. Maybe I should have tried the original. But then I couldn’t have rated it, since that was before ratebeer.
