COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A pale golden ale that is both super crisp and super hop forward with a refreshing mouthfeel and a summer friendly 6% abv. Mosaic & simcoe hops lend tart blueberry and fragrant pine to a pleasingly bitter dandelion finish. We wanted the hops to be the star in this seasonal offering taking its name from both the hop plant, Humulus Lupulus, and its light color and cloud-like feel, nimbus.

*Pairs well with a wide range of foods from roast chicken to burgers to fish and chips, appropriate cheeses could range from a mild blue such as Gorgonzola to a traditional cheddar or Derby with Sage.

Shot (178) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2013
Had this on tap at the Seventh Son brewery. Medium amber color with thin head. Aroma is loads of fresh hops. Flavors are light on malt, but heavy on the hops. It’s almost too much, but not quite. Light to medium mouthfeel with a fairly dry finish. Enjoyable pale ale with a kick. If you like hops, you’ll like the Super Pale ale.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Slightly hazy gold pour with a small head that fades to a ring. Big pine and floral hop aroma with some light citrus and grass. Tastes like a mix of grass and pine mostly. Light, sweet, bready malt and a moderate bitterness. Medium body. Stinging carbonation but still fairly smooth and easy to drink. Pretty solid IPA.

ARH (563) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap, poured into a sampler glass. Floral aromas including of mostly pine are noticeable with a citrus lemon note late. The beer is crystal clear and oily with a honey color and a dense, off-white, fluffy head. A thick ring and full island are retained with a good amount of lace. The taste is a balanced, medium sweet and bitter. The oily textured beer has a fizzy carbonation and a medium body. Pine, citrus lemon, and grapefruit flavors hit the palate with a crisp, citrus rind finish. Mellow flavors of burnt bread and caramel remain in the aftertaste.

Panzuriel (1361) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - DEC 8, 2014
On tap at Matt the Miller. This brew is a pale golden with a firm head of white bubbles. Noise is moderately full of floral hops. Taste is crisp, body is lively. Immediate impression is floral hops resolving into good bitters. A decent ipa.

From a can. Pours a slightly cloudy golden yellow color with a big fluffy white head. Lots of lacing left on the glass. Very nice aroma of citrus zest, orange peel, and light malts. Taste is not a powerful as the aroma, but still good, with the citrus hops up front, a bitter dry bit following. Overall, not a bad offering from a local brewery. Would recommend to others.

16 ounce can, guess this was canned within the past week or 2. It was the most recent batch they received at my local store this week. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a hazy golden/orange color with about a half inch off-white head that stayed around for a long time. There’s a good amount of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like citrusy (grapefruit) and pine hops, along with some light tropical fruit. Taste is similar to the aroma, but there’s also the addition of some light blueberries and sweet malt. However, this brew is all about the hops, it really is a "Super Pale Ale" like it says on the can. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit slick and has moderate carbonation. It’s a good selection to be one of their first canned brews. Hopefully they’ll keep canning this one, I’d buy it again. $9.99 a 4-pack.

Can to tasting glass at Ohio Brew Week 2014. Aroma includes grapes and blueberries; initial sweetness in taste quickly followed by bitter grasslands and then well-balanced aftertaste.

Tasted from draft. Pours a clear amber with white head. Good lacing. Aroma is earthy and pine. Taste is big time pine hops. Some earthy tones and a mild sweet backbone. Nice clean bitterness throughout. Above average pale ale/IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft to taster. Looks good for the style; a transparent orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of piney and mildly fruity hops with a light pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, but a bit more bitter than fruity (and still some pine as well). Average on the palate. Enjoyable.

Tmoney99 (11093) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2014
Draft at CBWF 2014. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate complex citrus and earthy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
