GABF 2007. A hazy light golden beer with a thin orangey head. The aroma is sweet grassy combined with notes of peaches, and so is the flavor, leading to a dry grassy and bitter finish.

Very hoppy for a pale, not a whole lot of fruit or sweetness going on, and thats all good news. Maybe the best pint I have had at Piece, although some of the higher abvís that come in snifters are pretty good.

Tap@ piece. Poured a nice golden transparent color, thick head. Aroma of crisp hops and citrus. Tastes is excellent hops, bitter and refreshing. Nice finish, excellent with their pizza. Another great one by piece.

A very hoppy pale ale. The aroma is mild compared to the flavor of the beer. Crisp and refreshing. Lots of citrus. I am a fan. I have had too many pints of this a couple of times :)

Obviously tried it on draught, as they donít allow growlers of this beer to be sold. On the nose, citrus hop aromas emerge with grapefruit, and lime as the malt lingers in the bakground. The hops translate in an almost herbacious way, but the citrus is still driving the flavor. Large amount of bitterness all the way through to the finish. After cooling down, the malt has a bit more to say in the flavor, but overall a little out of balance.

On tap and enjoyed a couple pints with JSquire and MrFacto: Slight hazy light amber with a fading head but left very good in itís wake. The aroma has notes of fresh citric and herbal hops, biscuity malt, sage and mint, and dusty yeast esters.
The taste starts with a hoppy and fruity overtone, fresh resiny hops abound. Lovely soft and chewy pale malt gets ya in the middle. The finish has a light pepper and clove tone. The mouth feel is lively, crisp and refreshing. A very enjoyable beer indeed and I can see why it won a medal at the GABF. I dig it and you need to get ya some.

UPDATED: MAY 19, 2008 From the brewpub, obviously. Copper and hoppy, decent pale ale. Nice sticky head with a good hop aroma and flavor, plenty of bitterness. Pretty nice (this is an update).

On tap @ the Brew pub: Pours a copper color with an off white head. Aroma, citrus and floral hops, pale malts. Flavor, bright floral and grapefruit notes, some caramel, a little thin, grassy on the finish. The finish was a little harsh and unbalanced on the bitter side.
