Bottle. An orange-amber pour, the head is thick, frothy and sticks to the glass quite well. The earthen aroma invokes the deep woods, pine, dirt. The beer drinks with a robust body, and is full of nice mountainy bitterness and a meaty, malty backbone. Oomph. (#5733, 9/13/2014)

Lovely aroma with a touch of bubblegum.beautuliful sheet lace, hazy brown. Really good pale ale. I was expecting something with a little higher gravity given it's a collab but this is a fairly basic, albeit excellent, APA.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
FoCollaboration Pale Ale is a peachy bronze colored beer that has a firm head of off white bubbles of various sizes. Nose is a bit of apricot with a crisp bite of hops behind it. Taste is initially quite dry but the flavor broadens on mid taste to the end of the taste. the beer has a good malt base that has some nice toasted oat presence. the hops are good and not too overpowering. just a smidge of bitters on the finish. a nice beer.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a pale amber with one fat finger of pillowy off-white head, great retention and well-defined lacing. Nose is bright piney and citrusy hops, light malt. Taste is balanced sweet malt, floral and citrusy hops, tropical fruit. Medium body, smooth texture, low carbonation and a long bitter finish.
Really excellent APA! Beautiful bright hops balanced with just the right amount of light sweet malt. The beautiful dense head keeps the aromas and flavour from dissipating no matter how long you linger over the pint.
