UPDATED: JUL 28, 2008 Clear pale red-orange pour with a nice thick white head. Sweet hoppy aroma balanced with malt. Smells delicious! Very hoppy flavor to go with the aroma. Piny and fruity. Bitter, but balanced and tasty. A good brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper with a fluffy beige. Aroma of hops, with some pine and citrus. Taste is hoppy, though not as forward as some others. Finish is not too bitter, body is medium. Not a bad APA.

330ml can (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, Bitter and Sour 2008)
Amber copper, tiny head. Citrus fruity hoppy aroma. Very lemony taste. Not lemonade, lemon. Very hoppy, grassy. Apart from that, or because of that, it’s pretty dull.

Pours with a slightly off-white head (long-lasting) and a copper body. Nose is of the flowery hops. Really earthy hops. Not too much fruitiness. Almost a little on the sweet side. Grass all around. Pretty good stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Canned) Hazy amber with a small, but firm and lacy head. Smoothly pine-hoppy aroma with nutty-toffeeish maltiness. Sweetish, very aromatic-hoppy, pine-citrusy flavor with a strongly bitter, dry finish. Medium-bodied, dry and bitter palate with soft carbonation. Bitterness is a tad harsh, but other than that, this is a pretty solid and balanced, strongly hopped pale ale.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Can. Body-dark honey brown with a lasting foamy off white head with good lacing. Nose-flat pale ale, crisp PNW hops. Taste-very clean, just the right amount of hops, biscuit malts, light unacidic citrus, grape, light grass, medium CO2, very light white spices, light bread, low alcohol, light earth/soil, light astringency on the finish. All in all, one helluva beer.

Draft for pint night at Greenleafe cafe. Reddish amber with ample slightly off-white head. Very fruity hop aroma follows through in the flavor. Malty backbone is not evident but clearly balances the beer extremely well. No lingering bitterness
