COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Unearth your bottle-opener because this Pale Ale is something you can Dig. Sorachi Ace hops provides a fresh Spring zing with incredible lemon aroma. Nelson Sauvin is next in line with bursts of passion fruit, mango and peach. American favorites, Cascade and Centennial round out this crisp, clean Pale Ale. Dig in!

On draft at Tap 25. It pours golden orange with a small off white head. The aroma is very peachy, lemony and grassy. The flavor is the same. There’s some mild vegetal thing going on here too. Decent malt background. A good pale ale.

Fratto (2845) - Arlington, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2012
Bottle from the Fort Worth Central Market. Reddish orange pour with a small white head. Aroma is dirty hops, a little earthy, and citrus. Taste is old fruit, caramel, a little dirty, sappy, and an awkward finish.

Smells very much like hops. Gorgeous color. Golden red. Tastes like an IPA. I know it is an IPA but I have yet to develop the ability to really differentiate between IPAs. Lingers on the tongue. Not a bad IPA overall.

Amber with a good head. A nice dose of hops hits the aroma and the flavor - light fruit flavors mixed with the malt.

kjohns (131) - North Dakota, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Clear light amber pour with moderate bubbly cream-color head. Citrus and light piney aroma with hints of caramel malts. Initial taste is a nice mix of sweet malt and citrus hops, but then the flavor just seems to fade into nothingness. The somewhat light mouthfeel and the lack of an appreciable lingering taste makes this one seem really "light". An OK pale ale, but not one of my favorites.

Vir4030 (591) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 5, 2012
UPDATED: FEB 18, 2013 Pours a clear reddish medium amber with a huge head. Aroma is a little burned caramel. Flavor is watery burned caramel. Light aroma taster at brownstone. Yellow clear thin head. Little sour flavor sickly shade of green. 6/3/4/2/6 compared with 5/3/4/2/6 from last rating. Glad I’m consistent.

wlajwl (5501) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Aroma is yeast, tropical fruit and citrus with an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is tropical, bready malts and a dry, medium bitter finish. There have been very few ales (at least knowingly) that I’ve had that are brewed using Nelson Suavin hops in some way. If this and the other (Anchor) are any indication, these hops definitely help make an ale unique and this one was very good all around.

rougeau13 (2493) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2012
Clear amber with a moderate off-white head and slight lacing. Aroma of herbal, pine and citrus hops, tropical fruit and faint bready malt. The taste is bready, herbal and citrusy. It’s pretty unique in my experience. Light-medium bodied and slightly dry. Refreshing and sessionable, this will be great for the Super Bowl.

rollinsr (547) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - FEB 5, 2012
Pours a light amber with some white head. Aroma is nice piney citrus hops. Taste is an initial hop bite that finishes nice and sweet. very well-rounded Pale Ale for anyone who is looking for something with some nice hop flavor but not a lot of bitterness.
