3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: DEC 4, 2011 Bottle. The pour was clear medium orange with a small (less than 1 finger) fizzy white head that did not stick around too long and had what I would call OK lacing.
The aroma was of quite noticeable of citrus and pine hops right off, with a mild caramel malt and an earthy yeast undertone with mild notes of fruit and citrus towards the end.
It tasted nice and hoppy with a strong note of citrus (grapefruit) right off the bat then became a tad malty with a note of fruit and a nice strong hoppy finish. The flavor lasted for quite a while after the swallow allowing the bitterness of the hops to settle in nicely on the taste buds.
Mouthfeel was medium to full bodied and very smooth and a bit dry in texture with a medium carbonation.
Overall a very satisfying Pale Ale that had a nice blending of fruit, malts and hops.

A really solid pale ale with a unique after palate that makes me want to keep drinking it. Lighter but with that bitter finish it's an awesome balance of heavy hops and refreshing.
First pale of Father's Day 2015. Bottle.

Świetny owocowy aromat, z nuta trawiastą, delikatnie winna, delikatnie naftowa. Trochę pachnie nowozelandzkimi chmielami. Piwo klarowne, barwa złota, kapitalny lacing, kiepska piana. W smaku podobne nuty jak w aromacie, jedynie z dodana lekka goryczka w tle. Goryczą zostaje na chwile w posmaku. Rewelacyjne piwo.
