Damn good pale ale. A true classic in the craft beer world. For many a moon, I despised hoppy, bitter beer and this was at the top of my "hate to drink" list. Then something extraordinary happened. My palate changed and I started to like more complex hopped up brews. This beer has now become a staple for me. Very crisp and clean on the nose with lots of floral notes and big hops. Foamy white head leaves some moderate lacing. Mouth feel is slightly oily and medium bodied. Taste is lots of crisp clean and bitter hops with pine cone, floral, wheat grass, and honeysuckle to boot. The caramel and cereal also come through. A true craft classic to be enjoyed on a regular basis.

From bottle; Pretty color and stable foam. Slightly malty, but not really hoppy nose. Nice bitter taste. Overall a good beer, probably better when fresher

Heavily overrated. Barely any hops to this. No tropical scent or taste. Feels bland for a "craft beer". This beer must have been better when they released it in the beginning. Maybe they’re being cheap with ingredients?

lello4ever (403) - ITALY - FEB 4, 2016
Colore dorato scuro, completamente limpida. Schiuma bianca compatta. Al naso malto, qualche nota floreale. Sapore di malto con leggero finale amaro e secco. Corpo e carbonazione media. Una buona birra da pasto ma senza gridare al miracolo.

bulldogops (1681) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 25, 2016
Rating #1595 - 27.03.2015 - Bottle from Palm Liquor. Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is citrusy, tangerine notes, mild grassiness, mild floral, piney scent.Taste is a blast of Magnum hop character whose bitterness evolves to define this beer, a bold bitterness following a crisp, floral,resinous, citrusy sweetness. Not unbalanced, and extremely drinkable

wiadran (95) - POLAND - JAN 25, 2016
aroma not very intense, hoppy-fresh. color of dark gold. very well balanced taste, sweet with good dose of bitterness. would be a great "every-day-beer" just if price was lower (quite an expensive one here)
