ThirstyBird (1587) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
Bottle @ RBBSG II - Thanks Dave! Pours a clear golden yellow with a small of-white head. The smell is simcoe hops, piney, some malt a bit of tropical fruit. The taste is more subtle than the smell - smooth and elegant. Very nice fine carbonation with light body. A nice drinker!

Nice but unremarkable pale ale. Good hoppy flavour comes through, less so than in the IPAs though.

On tap @ RR! Bright 14 karat pour with a decent ivory cap that left spotting inside the glass. Loads of grapefruit pith, orange zest, and lemongrass accompanied by evergreen and peppery spice. Highly drinkable! Yum!

bmerz (710) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAR 16, 2014
RR growler from RR drank within a few hours after the Pliny release. Pours a light clear yellow with great lace and a lasting head. Note I hadn’t quite kicked a head cold at this point so wasn’t getting everything through the Sudafed nose. Aroma is cooling with light peach and soft grain. Flavor is very clean with moderate bitterness on light grapefruit, pine, wood, and fresh steep grain. Feel is very dynamic, light, long. Amongst the best pales I have ever had.

Beautiful effervescent copper pour on tap at the brewpub. Aroma is outstanding, hoppy and reminiscent of Pliny. Great balance and high drinkability, clearly cut from the same cloth as the great RR IPAs I love so much. Fantastic pale ale, among the best I’ve had.
