Travlr (20881) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - JAN 15, 2016
Bottle courtesy of nuplastikk, thank you! Hazy deep golden amber color, white spider web head with good staying power. Aroma has orange and pineapple. Taste is bitter citrus, but there’s a very bitter and slightly papery component underlying it that detracts.

serviceable pale ale. Bottle from Woodman’s. Drinkable though not as hoppy as the style normally is these days.

mango and caramel on the nose. Easy drinking enough but nothing to stand out so many great pale ale’s on the market. I enjoyed the hop dish much better.

Bottle poured a clear tarnished gold with a small lingering ivory head. Aromas of bread, earthinmess, pine and a hint of grapefruit. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a smooth dry finish. Flvors of caramel, light earthiness and light pine with a smooth dry lightly bitter finish.

DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 10, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennan’s in Madison during GTMW. Mostly clear orange amber color. Thin off-white head. Some particles floating in the body. Decent reaches of lace, kind of loose, though. Caramel malts, some metallic. Bigger earthy bitterness. More dry finish. Medium body. Kind of rough, lighter carbonation. Some grapefruit peel, not much to the aroma hopwise, though. Bigger bitterness, lighter sweetness. Not a great pale ale. Kind a little astringent, and a little metallic. Kind of an acidic roughness in the finish.
