COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Light in color but not in hop presence. The citrusy sweet hop presence makes this beer a gateway to the world of hops.

6oz on tap at the brewery. Labeled on the menu as 5.5%, 36 IBU. Whoa, on first sip, my first impression is that itís surprisingly hoppy. A big amount of cat-pissy c-hop. This batch is less "gateway", and closer to "session IPA". Some herbal hop, and mild resiny hop. Mild bready caramel malt. Very surprisingly hoppy. Is it a case of F.A.F.? I dig it. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Almost entirely hazy golden orange color. Thin off-white head. Few bits of lace. Medium body. Smooth, kind of soft, lightly crisp lighter carbonation. Lightly slick texture. Pretty awesome session IPA. Er, excuse me, I meant pale ale.

Tap at North High. Unfiltered tan. A nice, hoppy, classic APA. Pleasant fruity aroma. Thickish malt tones compared to say, a Session IPA. A pinch odd, canít put my finger on it. OK.

UnionBrew (4) - Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2013 does not count
Even with several attempts, there was little to no aroma detected. Very basic looking pale ale, and disappointingly unbalanced. Although the bitterness was in attendance, the typical floral zest from the hops was not.

Draft sample at NHB. Poured a clear amber color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate balanced aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.
