COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We love the piney, fruity flavors of Simcoe® hops. This is a classic pale ale, with a generous dry hopping of Simcoe®. Because of the restrained malt profile, the hops really pop, like flora in spring.

Not sure how important organic is, but it smells great! Lots of tangerine and hops with a light aroma of wet-mowed grass. The taste was pretty hoppy and bitter... this is NOT an IPA!? Finishing dry and clean, this beer reminds me of a solid IPA.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2012
This one straddles the line between a standard pale and something hoppier. It has a grassy citrus and pine aroma and a lightly hazed orange color. Found the taste to be predominantly grapefruit, and hopped just enough to avoid being truly bitter. 55 BUs maybe. Good medium body, very crisp. Better than the same brewer’s india.

Foxbush (1258) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 27, 2012
This was tasted at the Capital Ale House in Innsbrook on their "steal the glass night". This APA was very mild, The clear color and nice head were the strong points. I fail to see the benefits of organic ale. I need to learn what is positive about that. This was a mild verison of APA. Some mild bitterness but very tame. Smooth finish with no bitter aftertaste.

drpimento (2173) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 16, 2012
Different brew; instead of the resin/citrus slam there’s more of a cut grass flavoma that is comfortably pleasing. Radical change for the good. Color is a clear amber. Aroma is grass, hop, malt. Flavor is like nose with emphasis on grass. Body is easy, chewy, and drinkable. Finish is like flavor, on the short side, and just flat out good.

60minuteman (697) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 6, 2012
Poured a light brown with small white lacing. Not much smell...hops and wheat mainly. A nice conflux of fruits and hops in the taste. Watermelon? Light, creamy texture. More hops.

scarletfire65 (907) - Rockaway Park, New York, USA - MAR 5, 2012
Tasted at NYC Craft Beer Festival. Nose is grain and sweet, floral hops. Light bodied. Has a grainy, corny quality. Rough around the edges.

rjplumer (378) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 4, 2012
Piney grapefruit aroma. Soft deep amber color with a light filmy head. Sharp bitter start. Clean dry finish. Refreshing and light. Nice example of the style.

LilBeerDoctor (3422) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear brown-orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of simcoe hops (very sweaty and grassy) with a hint of tropical fruits and citrusy notes. Flavor is quite hoppy upfront with again citrus, sweat, and sweet fruits. Some caramel and bready malt in the finish. This is a hoppy and tasty APA. 7/4/8/4/14 [3.7/5]

decaturstevo (4929) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - MAR 1, 2012
Hazes orange pour with white head and lace. Catpee and bready malt. Sweet malt with a very hard bitter. Thin and watery just a tad out of balance but drinkable.
