Highly carbonated with lots of pine hop aroma and flavor. Tasty but more hops presence than an a traditional APA.

12oz bottle. Gold amber color with one finger head. Earthy aroma, doesn’t seem as strong as a normal dry hopped beer. Slightly citrus taste, mostly earthy. Alright beer for me.

On cask at the source! Delicious. Pours a slightly hazy golden with the kind of white small bead head retention, and lacing of the glass with each quaff, that’s only possible with cask conditioning. Aroma is hop spices from the dry hopping, pine oil mostly. Taste is smooth sweet pale malt, bread dough, a bit of grapefruit and pine, as well as mild bitterness. Goes down easy!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle into pint glass, amber hued golden color with light tan head. Aroma of caramel malt, grainy and mango-y fruity/citrus hops. Taste adds notes of grass, bread and pine/grapefruit hop bitterness. Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, crisp, slightly creamy with some lingering citrus finish. Nice well rounded pale, need to try one fresher to see if hops pop more.

Good beer but not the hop bomb as advertised. Malt and grass in the aroma, quite nice. The flavor has the malty base with a nice citrus balance. Very clean and crisp. Excellent for hot weather.

Pours a nice amber color with off-white head. Pine, floral notes, citrus, and some spruce on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a good amount of malt letting you know it’s a pale ale. Very good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pale amber, slight haze, with thin white head. Fruity and piney hop aroma. A little citrus at the back of the teeth. Pretty good. Aroma oversold it.
