ACHops (1083) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 29, 2016
On tap @ Ballard Beer Company. Listed as Dead Wreckoning here. Pours clear bright orange with thin white head. Aroma is thin caramel malt, oaky and dry on the finish. Taste is clean malty light caramel malt, oaky and dry and somewhat flat on the finish. Decent beer, flavorful for a pale.

kramer (5611) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2016
Tap. Pours a clear dark gold body with a wispy covering of white head. The nose is pretty decent, citrusy hops, caramel malt base, some light tropical fruit. The flavor is simple and straight forward, light citrusy hops, thin caramel malt body, and a short bitter finish. Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with some slightly clingy sweetness. Soft fizzy carbonation. Your basic Pale Ale, nothing to write home about, but better than the first two beers I had here.

ClarkVV (4841) - Allston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 12, 2015
Draught at Emmett Watson’s, 11/4/15.
Good clarity throughout this copper-brass colored beer, with ample carbonation creating a medium-sized white head that shows moderate retention.
Soft, but quite fragrant hops in the nose add a dusty, lightly dried floral aroma with just a hint of lemon. Bits of caramel and honey play about but it never seems biscuity or toasty, which is nice (I think). No alcohol, nor flaw.
Moderate carbonation and a soft, lightly malty texture go down very easily in this hoppy, but not overly bitter pale ale. Floral notes, vanilla, light baked bread and a lightly dextrinous chewiness to the texture, on the finish. Very reserved, and while it’s brewed admirably, I can’t help wanting just a little more brightness and punch to it. The delicate flavors seem to fade in to the more domineering malts while a lightly piney note appears on the finish, rather out-of-place for the rest of the beer.

On tap at Maritime Pacific, pours a hazy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out dry hopping upfront along with biscuity malt. Flavour is pleasant, with notes of floral dry hopping and biscuity malt. Well-balanced and clean. Very drinkable.

commonmac (819) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Tap at the brewery with commonshawn, rosskyle, and wildcard. Pint glass. Golden in color with a hint of orange. Minimal froth. Aroma has plenty of pine and floral characteristics. Vibrant and refreshing on the nose. Mouthfeel is oily and resiny. Taste is mostly bright, citrus with pine cones kind of running the show. Not necessarily overly bitter but definitely hop resiny. Not really unique or impressive. Harmless.

Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 20, 2014
Nice looking brew. gold to light amber. Lasting frothy white head. Slight citrus flavor with big hop bitterness. Medium body with a numbing mouthfeel. Mostly hop flavors with slight malt and citrus sweetness. Mostly dry but finish lingers on the tongue. I would guess this beer had higher than 5 abv because of the bold hop presence. Very tasty!
