A - a nice glowing gold with low white head and sticky lacing. S - So hoppy! Simple and very clean. Lightly dank piney hops. Grassy and some notes of stone fruit. M - medium body with a nice palate. Strong but very smooth. Spritzy carb. T - piney and almost dank hops lead the taste. Clean citrus zest and mineral water. Bready and caramel malts round this out. O - a very nice simple, clean, delicious pale. 4.1

Big grapefruit and fruity tropical aromas tangy and with a bunch of dissolved co2 for a spritzy feel. Pushing a very full aroma. Resinous surface real bitterness in the finish. Lean and dry but busy by fingers of neroli, cantaloupe and soft honey. Adairius does mouthfeel right. I love this beer.

Tap. Pours cloudy light amber with a small white head and some lacing. Aroma is light overall, with notes of cat piss, stone fruit, citrus. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, pine resin, tropical fruits. Medium body, a touch minerally. Nice and refreshing.

illidurit (2114) - Petaluma, California, USA - SEP 23, 2013
On tap at the brewery. Pours nice gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma is a melange of citrus rinds, grapefruit especially. Flavor follows with a ton of grapefruit rind and a very bitter, lengthy finish. Malt takes a back seat; this is all about oily hoppiness on the back of the palate.

Half pour at the brewery during the Saison Bernice release, poured into a snifter glass. Nice big soapy head sits ontop of the beer. Aroma of ripe tropical fruit: pineapple, mango and slight pear. Some dank citrus hops comes through, but mostly a sweet fruit aroma. Taste follows with a nice juicy mouth and lingering bitterness. Almost all the finishes of the Simple: series reminds me of IPAs. There is a light malt presence with a honey sweetness that goes along with the mango/pineapple flavor. Nice medium carbonation. The finish appears to be dry, but it could just be the bitterness being a bit overpowering. Nice beer. I always thought beers with Galaxy hops were pretty weak (Prairie, Hill Farmstead), but this and Crooked Stave Hop Savant changed my mind.

A lot like the simcoe very very fragrant bitter juicy hops. Very dry and bitter but oh so delicious.

Another APA from SARA in the Simple series, this time with Galaxy hops. Poured a cloudy light gold, with a medium white head. Huge citrus aroma with a balanced taste. Medium bodied beer with good carbonation, nice bitter finish.
