madvike (3054) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2012
On tap at Apex - Pours amber with a foamy white head. Really citrusy nose, with a bit of onion. Super crisp and pungent. Light, clean malt. Taste is super clean, pale malt, with a blast of citrus, light herbal hops, and a long, clean citrus hop finish. Nice light effervescent body. Reminded me of NG Moon Man, but with more pungent, juicy hops. Love it.

500ml bottle received in trade. Thanks! Pours a clear, light amber color with a white head. Aroma is hoppy, citrus, grapefruit. Medium on the palate with average carbonation. Flavor is sweet, malty, bready, a nice dose of pine hops, with a light, bitter hop finish. A very tasty pale ale.

corby112 (2214) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 14, 2012
Draft at Monk’s Cafe in Philadelphia, PA. Pours a slightly hazy, pale golden straw color with visible carbonation bubbling up and a two finger frothy white head.  Excellent retention, only slowly fading into a lasting cap.  Large streaks and spots of soapy lacing left behind. Delicate floral hop aroma that becomes more prominent as it warms.  Slight grassy/piny with subtle citrus and light fruit notes.  Hints of apple, pear, pineapple, grapefruit and lemon peel with a light biscuit malt backbone.   Medium bodied with tight carbonation and a spicy, floral hop bite up front that provide some dry bitterness that lingers throughout.  This is countered mid-palate by pale malt, subtle citrus and some light fruit.  Bitter but not too much so with the perfect amount of dryness that’s countered by bready yeast, biscuit and pale malt.  I’m also picking up hints of straw, apple and pear.  Well balanced with great hop flavor making this beer very quaffable.

rodenbach99 (3466) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 14, 2012
Bouteille rapportée de Californie par ce cher Beuf. Boul. Bue en compagnie du Slovak. Cette bière est superbe, la robe est dorée et une fine couche de mousse blanche-beige la protège de l’oxydation. Le nez est tout en simcoe (trop facile), avec de agrumes, aiguilles de pin et surtout des pêches. La bouche est fraiche, la structure moyenne, quelque peu mince mais combien rafraichissante. L’amertume est marquée. Le goût est persistant. Un superbe produit.
