Bottle. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor with some maltiness. Medium bodied. Grapefruit and light pine linger with malt and light earthiness.

Pours a transparent light gold with a big creamy white head. Crescents of foam cling to the walls of the glass after each sip. Spot on for an APA. The aroma is honey, caramel, tangerines and pine needles. Nothing too strong, nothing too weak. The taste is just a touch too sweet at first with some crystal malt notes, but it finishes with some dry yeastiness, hop bitterness and lingering honey. Mouthfeel starts smooth and kinda creamy but is fading and getting watery before I can finish my glass. Having purchased the bottle due to an impulsive need to try new local beers, I expected practically nothing from this beer and was pleasantly surprised. This is a very quaffable APA with good hop flavor and balance.

Bottle shared by Shane, thanks! Poured a clear amber orange with a white head that dissipate quickly to the edges. Aroma had a pretty strong sweet malt backbone with a strong citrus and grapefruit combining with strong pine as well. Flavor was more dominated by pine with a sweet grain backing and a bit of grapefruit coming through in the finish.

Sampled at the Rose and Crown. Pours very cloudy like a hefe. Actually was surprised to see this as a pale ale. A really nice brew. Drinks nice. Big malts to this that are very refreshing. Nice brew.

Wow, what a difference a new contract brewer makes. The old version of this beer brewed at Devils Canyon was pretty mediocre, but this is actually very good. On tap at Rose & Crown. Appearance is excellent. Clear golden with a soapy-looking white head that lasts and leaves great rings of lacing. Aroma is fresh bright citrus and floral hops along with a little honey sweetness. Flavor is sweet pale malt and grain along with lots of floral and citrusy hops, with sweet honey on the finish. A little bit of butteriness/diacetyl is the only flaw, but it’s hardly noticeable. Medium body with a dry and hoppy mouthfeel. This beer is really excellent - a huge improvement over previous batches, really a totally different beer. Great job, Kasim. I’ll be having this again for sure.

From tap at Rose and Crown. Pours clear and golden orange with a creamy and chalk white head. Aroma is dry and grapefruity to pine hoppy. Smooth hoppy, dry pine and grapefruity hops flavoured. Solid bitter and dry into the finish.
