My first disappointing beer from these guys. Poured a golden color with a white head. Aroma was of pale malt and grassy and bitter hops. Flavor was similar, a bit citrusy and wheaty almost, somewhet refreshing, but shouldnt be called hopgobbler.

bottle. Golden with one finger head. Very light malt base with substantial hops. Moderate bitterness accents a very crisp finish.

bwa5879 (541) - Portage, Michigan, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Deep orange pour with a half inch of white head and moderate thick lacing. Scent is strong pollen and cottony flowers. Average carbonation, frothy mouthfeel, leaves a slightly chalky feel on the finish. Nutty flavor and citrus and pine hoppiness. Pretty light and refreshing with great balance between malt and hops that is slightly malt forward.

bigtaster (527) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Clear golden color with off white head that recedes quickly. Nose if fuirty with pineapple and some floral notes. Initially slightly sweet with some nice fuits, but goes a little bit too sweet, almost diacetyl flavor. Easy to drink, hops are nice, but expected more.

ICEatALAMO (873) - Troy, Michigan, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle. The pour is a pale orange, hazy. The aroma is light hops, more lager. The taste is just meh, kind of metallically. A little disappointed ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. Pours a golden, light-hazed color with a large off-white head. Citrus and berry aroma, tea. Buttery hop flavor, tea, herbal. Not really my favorite.

Minimal aroma a bit of hop and citrus in the flavor.. not very good in my opinion, the bottle art was the best selling point

12 ounce bottle into pint glass; no bottle dating, but was released recently. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy golden amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange zest, lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Damn nice aromas with good complexity of dank citrus hops with a light-moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, orange zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, light honey, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of tangerine, grapefruit, pineapple, orange/lemon zest, citrus rind, floral, grass, pine, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Damn nice complexity of bright citrus/pine hops with a moderate malt balance; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and fairly sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish as expected of 4.75%. Overall this is a damn nice pale ale. All around good complexity and balance of bright citrus/piney hops with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
