From ratman197’s bottle at Bistro DIPA. This amber ale poured with a thin white head and a strong genever aroma. There is a smooth caramel malt body with some nice hopping to produce pine at the finish.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle $5 from Total Beverage. Nice heavy orange color, transparent, bubbly, and has a foamy head. It has a nice hoppy smell, floral, pine, good. The flavor is a seriously hoppy pale ale. the smell made me think it might taste like an IPA but it is more like a hoppy pale ale. This was a good beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampled at Big Pour Mesa, AZ. Crystal clear golden nugget pour with a small eggshell head. This IPA exhibits a ponderosa, douglas fir, and spruce nose...very piney. Flavor has less obtrusive evergreen and citrus. Malt enough to make this sessionable. Okay.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A very unusual brew indeed. The aroma alone caught me off guard. I thought I was smelling Gin or something. Big florals and some herbal essence on the nose. The flavor and body was on the light side making a good session style Pale Ale.

On tap at The Big Pour in Mesa AZ. Pours a nice brown color with a small white head. Aroma of hops, malt. Flavor is much the same. A little different than most Pale Ale’s but I can’t pinpoint exactly what it is.
