Sample at Odd Side. This beer was really pale and clear with quite a bit of white foam on the sample. Aromas were lovely Simcoe... Resin and pine... Flavor was very robust and clean for a small beer. Nice! Can’t wait to see this in bottles.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Light golden body with frothy white head. Aroma of citrus, grapefruit, pine. Hint of biscuit and caramel. The flavor is lightly to moderately sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. It finishes lightly sweet and lightly to moderately bitter. Thin to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Hop taste of grapefruit and citrus with some grass. Aroma was bold enough, but the thinner body (not surprising in a session ipa) was a bit of a weak backbone for the hop flavors.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On draft at Captain Joe’s in Whitmore Lake on September 26 with Tara Dye. The pour is a bright golden yellow color with a frothy white head and some decent lacing. It’s foggy. The aroma is different. There is a strange dankness to it that I wasn’t expecting. For the most part, it smells like someone just threw wet whole cones in there, and waited to see what happened. There is a little pine resin, but for the most part it just smells like damp hops. Not great. The flavor is similar, if not a touch worse. There is a wet pine thing happening, and the wet leaf comes back in greater force. Light resin, and just a dominating dankness. The mouth feel is light and watery, hardly carbonated with a lingeringly messy finish. Like I just pulled some hops out of a barrel of water and sucked on them. Not a fan at all.

Bottle. Gold with some particulate and a medium beige head. Strong simcoe and piney aromas. Hops and a little malt. A surprising amount of flavor for a session although the finish is pretty watery.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a fully hazy pale amber golden with a large white head. Strong pine hop aroma, resinous, with grassy and citrus backings. Similar flavors, more grassy than citrusy, with just a hint of malt. A simple but good pale ale.
