4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
It smells like a lot of tropical fruits. Mangoes, pears, raspberry and some citrus all from the hops...fantastic. I also get a cracker like malt sweetness. I get all of those smells I just described in the taste as well with a sharp citric bitterness mixing in with the cracker sweet malt that mixes in with the sweetness from the hop flavors very well. Medium mouth feel not too light but definitely not heavy by any means. Definitely a pale ale by the way the mouthfeel is. If it was a bit thicker in body this could almost pass for an IPA pretty much. Excellent Pale Ale. One of my favorites for sure.

Tap at Eureka Burger. Pours a very light straw yellow with tiny white head. Aroma was hay, grass, slight dirt and an ever so faint orange peel. Taste is a very light lemon pepper, honey and grass flavor that has a very thin mouth feel.

6 months old. Very mellowed out, mellowed out fruitiness, extremely low fruitiiness, very refreshing. No malt base whatsoever, pure hop, but feels a bit mellowed out. Weak alcohol taste to it.

Bouteille. Saveur Bière. Robe orange clair, mousse blanche. Nez agréablement fruité, saveur exotique, houblon oblige. On retrouve aussi une note légèrement biscuité du malt. En bouche c’est l’amertume, agréable et prononcée, qui nous accompagne jusqu’à la finale. Saveur douce de malt caramel, léger sur la résine et le coté floral du houblon. Une pale ale d’ américain ni plus ni moins et c’est déjà bien.
