Pretty tasty for a beer straight up called a pale ale. Nice burst of hops and totally crushable. Put a bomber down in like 10 minutes. Smells super fresh, like all the Mother Earth beers do. Easy drinker, with a pungent hop flavor. Yay. Thank you!

Decent pale...too much hops for pale and similar rubber tire aroma as Kismet. Seems they are trying to push it too much, as there is some astringency. Still drinkable.

Had on tap at Tender Greens on Broadway. Pours a slightly hazy copper gold. Thin white head. Served much too cold and so little aroma was discernible. Just a slight pineyness. Flavor is also slightly pine with slight malt. Hop forward pale ale. Nice beer.

Small and unassuming ale with a big bite. Clear and dark golden, light hop aroma. Taste brings on the hops, finish is decidely astringent, piney.
