COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Beer served was dated from October 2013 and was beyond recommended serving date. Nonetheless, it’s worth reviewing, as not every beer is served in ideal conditions. It had some staleness, though the bottle conditioning helped to preserve the flavor albeit it was more carbonated. Had good fruitiness to it and was malt balanced. It had a piney, dry finish. I would recommend this beer.

Bottle at whole foods shared by Huhzubendah, thanks Matt. Pours a translucent golden orange with last white head that leaves moderate lacing. Aroma is bright hop character with pepper, pine and mild citrus. Flavor is same with citrus notes. Medium bodied, full carbonation and piney bitter finish.

Draft brewery all in flight. Tropical fruit, mango, pineapple. Light, standard pale ale feel. Very clean and easy. A little pine and resin. I wish this was available in 6 pks! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cloudy orange with plenty of bubbles. Crisp, slightly citrusy aroma; hops, bread. Very, very dry. Pine, citrus, some spice. Lots of fizz in the mouth. Long, doughy aftertaste. Not really my thing.

Quevillon (2475) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 22, 2014
Drank on tap (13 oz) at Prohibition Pig in Waterbury (VT) on August 19, 2014. Golden blonde, small head. Fresh dry hoppy arome, with notes of lemon peel. The taste is as fresh as the arome, nice dry citrusy notes, fairly bitter. A fair and solid APA!

Bottle. Golden/light amber body. Frothy white head, slowly diminishing. Big hop aroma of flowers, mango, passion fruit and citrus. Light toasted grain, too. The flavor is moderately sweet and lightly bitter. It finishes lightly to moderately sweet and moderately bitter. Medium body, velvety texture, lively carbonation. Taste of tropical fruits. Lingering bitterness. Its delicate flavors hang on long enough to make a point before a dry bitterness takes over. Really nice. More and more, I appreciate extra flavorful beers in the 4-6% ABV range like this one.

Poured from bottle, decently priced at $6, pours a hazy golden orange with a thin head, aroma is of a good amount of citrus and clean hops, the flavor has a bright front end and a crisp finish, nice mouthfeel, good stuff

sudomorph (578) - Barrie, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 11, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear, golden yellow with a active, white head. Aroma is bright. Great notes of pine, tangerine, resin, citrus, grapefruit, and a bit of bread. Taste is a touch on the bitter side. Clean and smooth flavours of floral, pine, resin, citrus, and grapefruit. Medium body and carbonation. Clean and crisp in the mouth with a soft carbonation and a dry finish. Overall pretty tasty. Bright flavours with an easy drinking, refreshing mouth feel.
