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.

Very easy drinking pale ale...lots of aromatics, moderate body. Mostly aroma for the hops, not a lot of bite in the body, but still very very good.

Poured a bottle from a beer trade from Kaser. Bottle dated 10/14/14. Aroma - WOW. amazing aroma from a pale ale. Extremely piney - awesome. Appearance - Hazy orange color with a good finger of fluffy head. Taste - Very good. Very light bodied beer. This would be a great spring summer sitting on the deck beer. Palate - Crisp, clean tasting. Lively carbonation. Overall - great pale ale. At 6% it is close to an IPA, but a very good beer. Thanks Kaser!

On tap at the Red Star Bar in Chicago -- This is an amazing pale ale. Aroma is fragrant and strong citrus. Flavor follows the same profile, extremely juicy hops in this guy. I loved everything about this beer.

Pours slightly hazy gold with white head and nice lacing. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, and melon. Taste is the same with some lemon zest. Very dry finish. A little thin, but still awesome.

PapaSkeetSkeet (859) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 7, 2014
Hazy-cloudy yellow-orange with an inch of frothy cream-colored head that fades slow leaving frothy film. Aroma is huge pineapple and orange juice, passion fruit and guava. Yum. Body is light, oily, medium fine carbonation with a bit of bite and sandpapery texture. Flavor is, again, guava, pineapple, and some light graininess. No apparent sweetness, just enough to blend in with the fruit. Bitterness is herbal, moderate. Not out of balance for the style. Amazing.

500ml bottle from New Beer Distributors, New York

Bottled 102814 - Pours orange with a smooth white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, grass, pine, caramel and grapefruit. Taste is smooth, citrusy and hoppy with some fruits, pine and grapefruit. Finish is sweetish and citrusy with some hoppiness and piney grassy notes. Pretty good.

Rating #1062 - April 20, 2014 - Bottle from Coop 6% - Golden amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable

Clownoisseur (264) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Pours a vibrant golden color. Two finger white-head. Good retention. Aromas come wafting out...pine..orange peel...lemon peel...papaya. Hell yea. Taste mimics the nose. Loaded with big juicy hops. Snake juice. Pine, earth, citrus, tropical...great bouquet of hops. Light bodied. Slight malt sweetness. Low-moderate bitterness. Great pale ale.

jercraigs (8059) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
2014-11-09. Very lightly hazy bright golden orange body, modest off-white head and nice lace. 3+ Aroma is pleasantly hoppy, with sort of a fruity straw Nelson Sauvin like character (though I’m not sure what hop it actually is). 7+ Lightly bitter throughout, pleasantly fruity hops, light straw and lemon touches. Finish is ever so slightly astringent at times but almost pleasantly so. A tad past the recommended drink by date but tasty nonetheless. Very quaffable. Bottle via trade with Duffman.

brigg (521) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 15, 2014
(Bottle) Hazy orange body with medium disappearing head, wispy lace, constant stream of fine bubbles. Aroma of spicy hops, pine, melon, orange, sweet malt. Dry bitterness up front and in the finish, some underlying sweetness in the middle; orange, resin. Refreshing. Medium body, soft, oily.
