Sammy (8912) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2009
Enjoyed on tap at the brewpub. Serviceable pale, served cold. Caesar head on grapefruit colour, and lacey. Decent bitterness, drying finish. Middling at best mouthfeel.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is very fruity and sweet malt. Flavor is a litle earthy hop, a little floral, sweet caramel malt. Medium and lively carbonation. Tasty with a hop forward flavor

SpudClampDawg (1029) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - SEP 22, 2008
<i>Draft at the brewpub:</i> This is a buttery bomb. Pours a yeasty gold with a thin, ivory head. Diacytel lays heavy on top of the otherwise hoppy nose. The citrusy hops are choked out by the buttery notes. More of the same in the body. Sweet caramel enters the mix as a healthy dosing of NW hops adds complexity. Unfortunately the butter makes this thick in the mouth and slick on the tongue, ruining much of the pale ale experience.

Overall was decent. Taste was crisp, yet light. Palate sat well, finished with a nice hop flavor.

holdenn (2083) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2008
On tap at the brewery. Poured a hazed copper with a white fizzy head. Fruity citrus hops in the nose. Sweet and tropical. Caramel malt flavors with citrus, tropical fruits, and hops. Touch of floral bitterness and spice in the finish. Surprisingly refreshing and tasty.

Tmoney99 (11066) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 31, 2007
Draft sampler at North Peak. Poured an amber color with a moderate fizzy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Light sour citrus hop aroma. Medium body with soft carbonation. Medium bitter flavor with a medium bitter of moderate duration duration. Good drinkable brew.

beerbuzzmontreal (3490) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 10, 2007
Pours a hazy orange color with a thin white head. Aroma of resinous hops. Flavor of resinous and piney hops, interesting but lacks a solid presence of malt to give some sense of balance, it finishes with bitterness. The body is light with an oily texture and lively carbonation. The best beer I had at this brewpub, which doesn’t say much.

auerbrau (3178) - Peace Dale, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 14, 2006
12 Oz Bottle. Aroma of dying plant material and crushed seeds. Pour of an almost opalsecent tawny green-gold. Rim of white. Flavor is disgusting, a real disagreeing bite of sourness and dry tannins. There’s not much malt or hop character, just a disconcerting pain of sour and dry fighting. It’s ugly.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 17, 2006
Tap at brewery. Nice orange copper color with no head. Nice fresh hop aroma and taste, that settles into the malt. Very refreshing. Pine and some grapefrut.
