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.

Au nez, on sent une forte odeur de bonbon a la pêche et le jus d'aloès. En bouche, c'est tellement doux, légèrement amère et fin tout en étant très goûteux et bien balancé. La finale est enveloppante, rafraîchissante et avec un beau sucre résiduel. J'ai trouvé ma nouvelle référence comme Pale Ale! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Gold pour, medium white pour. Great aroma of grass, orange, citrus and caramel. Flavor is by no means bad, but a bit of a letdown after that great nose. Fresh grassy and citrus notes. Crisp, fresh, refreshing.

From 9 oz bottle in a tulip glass. Pour is clear straw golden with a wonderful frothy head. Nose is dangerously fruity with lots of passion fruit, mango, and grapefruit. Medium sweetness. Grains and herbal aromas too. Taste is not as strong as the nose. Light citrus notes with a nice floral hoppiness. Some peppery notes are also present. A long light to medium bitterness finish rounds all this up. A perfectly refreshing pale ale with a strong flower and fruit character.

Bottled. Pours a nice hazy golden color. Aroma is hoppy, lemony, with a biscuity maltiness. Flavor is spiciness, hoppy, lots of lemon, and a biscuit sweetness. Wow, what a balance. A great APA.

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.

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.
