12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a hazy golden amber color. The head is a two finger white shade with a frothy-looking texture. It doesn’t have the best retention in the world, either. S: There are some decent tropical qualities on the nose. I also note touches of grass, pine, and grapefruit. Aromatically, it’s hardly explosive, just oh-so-pleasant. T: It’s initially mildly bitter, with notes of piny hops and a bit of mango. I particularly enjoy the midtaste and its subtle fruit esters. The finish sees a return of piny bitterness. What it lacks in excitement it makes up for in drinkability. M: I think it’s a hair too fizzy and sharp on the back end - otherwise, I have little to complain about here, as the light, dry texture makes it eminently drinkable. O: Very easy to like. Granted, it’s not a fresh bottle, but beggars can’t be choosers, really. This really works well as simple refreshment.

Single best pale ale on the market, in my opinion. Lively carbonation, highly aromatic, citrusy hop profile. If they rebranded this a "session IPA" I bet this would sell huge.

hackobock (1708) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - DEC 4, 2014
November 8, 2014. Bottle at VilleValla Pub. Hazy orange with a small white head. Aroma is grassy and fruity with mango, pineapple, pine and caramel. Taste is light sweet caramel and fruity, medium bitter. Sweet fruity finish with a light dry bitterness. Light bodied, light oily texture, average carbonation.

MarkSachon (634) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2014
12 oz bottle from Giant Eagle in Pittsburgh. All the superlatives apply here. For an IPA, this was quite enjoyable and wasn’t ruined by the usual hop nonsense so many IPA’s are subject to in their ruination.

AbouAli (88) - Genève, SWITZERLAND - NOV 30, 2014
couleur jaune claire limpide avec une pas mousse plutôt fortement carbonaté nez très houblonné goût avec fort de houblon avec une impression d’amertume forte. manque de rondeur malgré quelques touches de malt.

Tessic (906) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 20, 2014
This apa poured a golden yellow colour with a minimal, white head. Slightly cloudy. Scents include pineapple, orange and lemon citrus, light cheese and dough. First swig was smooth and creamy with nice, not over the top citrus hops. Beautiful level of carbonation. Lighty malty finish with citrus hops lingering. Very good!

dwyerpg (4637) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - NOV 10, 2014
This one tastes old. A bit flat with a pale ale flavor that is just a bit off, like it’s more of an English style. Not good, which makes me think this beer got damaged.

HIGHB4LL (655) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 24, 2014
12 oz. bottle from Cash Wise in Williston. Appearance: 2+ fingers white head, golden color, light cloudy. Aroma: caramel, light pine, citrus, floral. Palate: light body, moderate-light carbonation, sticky texture, bitter finish. Taste: light sweet caramel, slightly more intense sweet fruitiness, into citrus bitter, than on into heavy pine bitterness and floral bitterness finishes it out. Overall, very complex hops makeup, not overly bitter despite light sweetness, very good beer.

Strykzone (5063) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Had a pint of this at Social Gastropub. Generally clear and golden with some decent foam. This beer was full of tropical and citrus fruit with the tropical out front. Grapefruit underneath. Some malts added nicely.

pinkzambia (1530) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 24, 2014
Tap: sweet hoppy aroma with a semi clear gold look with a small sustainable white head. Hoppy Flavors abound, almost an IPA. Slight Wheaties aftertaste. Yum!

Bottle from Bo Brooks’ Lighthouse Liquors, Baltimore. Slightly hazy gold, with a thin, white, head. Big, hoppy, grapefruit and pineapple notes, with some crisp malts and dryish finish. Very good.
