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!

Good hop expression: grassy guava and lemon zest, which is what you would expect from these hops. Quite hoppy and bitter in balance, with a little biscuit and caramel for balance but a dry and bittern finish. Body is in the lighter side and texture is smooth into a light astringency in the finish. The hops do get a little soapy in the finish, which detracts a little. The dry, doughy yeast character becomes a bit much as well. Can’t say I’m a fan. The hop blend sounded promising, but the rest of the beer needs more roundness and balance to be pleasing.

Amber color with a smaller, but stable off-white head. Malt and herbal hops along with a hint of butter. Light sweet start. Quite bitter from the middle to the linger. Citrus, pine and agave come to mind. 11/11

Seasonal beer that rocks the spring. This is a light beer with wonderful smell and tasty palate.

Hoppy with notes of citrus. Light bodied and a little unbalanced in the direction of citrus profiles

Bottle from 2012 notes. Pours a clear golden color with a medium sized white head. The aroma and flavor have some citrus and tropical fruit notes, toasted malts, hints of resin and soapy floral notes, nothing bad per say, just a decent straight forward APA.

"it may be Mighty Arrow’s equal with some time, but so far the replacer falls juuuust short of the replacee. Very nice pale, though, just wish they did both. nice hoppy aroma and bitterness for an apa. the flavor really shines with the odd sorachi lemony-soapiness and the tropical fruit. wish there was more of that in the aroma, but it’s still pretty dang nice."

Draft. Pours clear golden with nice white head. Nose is some bread with a little hops. Taste is some malt and caramel and a little hops. Dry on the backend.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Lemon zest, citrus, and floral notes on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a tropical fruit note. Not bad.

I had this at Global Brew. Pours gold with a white head. Taste citrus, sweet, grass. I thought this was good. I would drink this again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice lemony, citrus aroma. However, the taste does not match that well. Citrus, lemon peel, orange peel. Decent beer.
