Quantum was good. There were much less hops compared to most Ninkasi brews.

Draft at alewife. Pours a copper amber body with this white head and nice lacing. Aroma is faint metallic and stale hop. Dear Christ, I’m praying that this is old because this is god awful. Essentially like drinking wet pennies and stale malted-out hop juice. Not right.

drsandman (188) - New York, USA - JUN 16, 2014
Pours a clear light amber, small head. Aroma is pine, bitter fruit rind, caramel, bread, hops. Taste is super bitter, a little much for my liking on a pale... Not a lot of depth of flavor here, simple bitter APA.

fiulijn (14294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2014
Draught at Alibi Room, Vancouver
Hazy golden color with creamy head. Mild aroma of malt, a bit lemony. The mouthfeel is not too dry, quite round; the malt is present, but its profile is quite simple; the bitterness is strong, but the hop is not shining either, and it ends with some unpleasant chicory bitterness.
Ordinary Ale.

Salmoniform (459) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2013
Orange amber hue with thick creamy white head. Aroma is hoppy, floral, spicy, caramel, citrus. Mouthfeel is nice with medium body and moderate carbonation. Taste is sweet initial with a strong bitter following and slight CO2 bite in the finish. Overall this is a nice brew but is more of a hoppy amber than a pale ale.

coreyc1221 (260) - Truckee, California, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Hoppy light malt aroma. Golden red tint in color with a pillowy white head. Lighter in taste than expected. Light hay feel tingly zing on the sides of the tongue with a dry finish.

krumbum (500) - truckee, California, USA - JUN 14, 2013
