Wonderful aroma, great balance with bitterness. Does not try to be too much in any category, just plain good!

Not nearly hoppy enough. Smooth and easy to drink. A Pale Ale for the masses.

I am not quite a Pale Ale ’fan’, but this brew kept me interested throughout the glass. I would definately recommend this with a steak or even pizza.

Nice hoppy aroma, hop character more balanced than most pale ales, substantial mouthfeel.

complex character indeed, sweet, tangy, hoppy, not what i’d expect as a traditional pale, very unique flavor
