3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light golden color, minimal head, mediocre lace. Powerful hoppy aroma sports a bouquet of floral and juicy hops. Fresh citrus, grapefruit, melons, and tangerines be all up in mah grill.
Taste of piney hops, lemon rind, a bit of malt, more juicy hops. Finishes dry and only mildly bitter. Pretty nice, actually; I could see myself sessioning this on a hot day.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can. Pours a hazy gold with a high, white, fine-grained, lacy head. Nose is very potent -- citrus, lavender, and rosemary. Hops on the front, hops on the back, and citrus all around, surrounding a middle-palate core of caramel malt. Well-balanced and clean, with a long, mandarin orange finish. Nice riff on a good beer.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma of grapefruit, pine, with caramel notes. Pours a golden amber with a mostly diminishing white head and no lacing. The taste is replicates the nose. Grapefruit at first with a nice biscuit middle and pine/resin bitter finish. Medium body with medium carbonation. Crisp mouthfeel. Overall, a nicely balanced beer (malts to hops) which is a pleaser on a hot Texas afternoon.

Pour is an attractive hazy amber with a thick creamy white head. The nose is not overpowering with hints of resin and citrus hops. This tastes closer to an IPA than a typical blonde ale. It has a medium mouth feel an nice clean hop finish. It is probably my favorite beer from Real Ale. Highly recommended, especially to IPA drinkers looking for something a little bit different.

6-pack all plagued by clumpy yeast particles which detracted from appearance. However, this was a sturdy beer with nice citrus-pine-floral aroma and well-balanced IPA on the hoppy side of the ratio.

Pours hazy lite orange with a one inch fuzzy soapy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is big resinous c hops here grapefruit pinneaple with a touch of floral notes as well. Flavors are bigtime grapefruit lite pine some rindy bitterness (orange and lemons). The beer has a very medicu
Inal asprin like hop profile its really all hops and no malt at all minus the crystal sweetness to balance the bitterness. I like the hop profile a lot in tbis beer. Bitterness in tbe finish is mild and somewhat subdued to what I was expecting. Its not an ipa its not an apa I don’t know how to classify it really. Maybe an ipa but it would not do well in that category. Very soft pillowy palate tbat I really like. Very nice brew here!

Good gateway craft beer. Tastes like Amarillo hops for sure and citrus zest, but not much else. ’Merica

Pours a hazy gold with a foamy white head and lacing. It has a great aroma of grapefruit and citrus. The flavor is bitter citrus hops up front followed by a more mellow hoppy middle and semi bitter finish over a medium, slightly fizzy body.
