COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rose-gold colored pale was hopped exclusively with our own mongrel mix of *fresh* whole hops harvested by the staff during our seventh annual 'Hop Drop'. Just a few hours separated these hops from the vine and this wonderful beer. This beer has a luscious malt character that marries delightfully with the herbal qualities of the fresh hops.

3fourths (8236) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - OCT 28, 2007
Pint at Selins Grove. Unfiltered amber colored, cloudy body. Lightly grassy hop oil nose, main scents of pine, sap, canola and pine nuts. Wet, fresh, oily, then crisp over the middle. Very good, but not fantastic. A good slightly dry pale ale, with a nice straightforward hop flavor.

kramer (5101) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 27, 2005
On cask at brewpub, 2005 version 5.5% ABV. Poured a dark copper, thick creamy off-white head, almost no visible carbonation. Light floral hop aroma with some sweet malt beneath. Flavor wise, the hop profile is as mongrel as the description would indicate. Not bad, but rather lacking in definition. Lightly malty base. Light to medium bodied with a wonderful cask conditioned mouthfeel. Not a bad beer overall, but lacks a little definition. Much better though then when I had it on draft a month before. Cask conditioning when fresh and well taken care of can really do wonders.

on draft at brewery, sweet thick malty with that grassy herbal wet hop flavoring. Good wet hopper right here

Hand pump. Hazy golden pour with tan head. Very floral and light fruit like malty aroma. Cask like texture but my entirely flat. Light floral and fruit flavored pale ale.

DiarmaidBHK (3578) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
draft at brewpub. pours with an orange tint and a half an inch of foam that leaves quickly. There’s a slight hint of citrus on the nose and slight bit of hop flavor on the tongue. Clean finisher. Not my fave beer here.

Consumed on October 27, 2012 at the brewpub. I’m finally starting to enter some of my backlog. Arrived at the table a lightly hazed orange-gold with a moderate linen white head that was gone after the second sip. Pleasant aroma of mild citrus. The flavor is mild malt followed by some grapefruit bitterness with a bit of pith. Moderate bitterness at the finish. No problems.

LilBeerDoctor (3505) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 30, 2009
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber/brown with a white head. Aroma of citrus, tropical fruits, and caramel malts. Flavor of the same citrus/caramel and sweet malt. Good APA, practically an IPA. 8/4/7/4/14 [3.7/5]

MrChopin (3474) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Draft at brewery. Tea-amber color, wispy white head. Nose is rather thin with light citrus, grass, and caramel malt. The flavor shows hints of bitter hop and more grass, also a surprisingly heavy dose of yeast and gum. Sticky body with a creamy, yeasty finish, light biscuit with warmth. An odd combo.

kmweaver (3207) - Petaluma, California, USA - NOV 23, 2007
Draft, Selin’s Grove Brewing Co. Pours a bright, clear golden-orange color; thin off-white head. Relaxed, resiny orange and citrus hop character in the aroma. Relaxed carbonation; oily, resiny orange and floral hops upfront; solid wet hop character with some oiliness and minimal rough bitterness; quite smooth; nice jolt of citrus bitterness on the tip of the tongue. Medium, resiny orange and sugar finish.
