COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This amber colored pale ale was the first beer we brewed together, so it was only fitting to name it FIRST BITE. Generous additions of American hops, light body and a dry.finish give it plenty of flavor and aroma while still remaining highly drinkable. YOU GOT BITTEN

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - SEP 7, 2013
Bottle:   Fiery golden, moderate sudsy white head, spotty lacing.   Hoppy nose, slightly dank and wet.   Strong pithy start, slight sweetness, hoppy, with a touch of floral notes.   Tastes better than it leads on with the nose.   Average body and mouthfeel.   Somewhat of a stale hop exit.   Moderate example, not too bright, but decent enough.   Just needs to be brighter, more vibrant.

jgb9348 (5096) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Copper coloured body with a ridiculously large, eight centimetre tall soapy tan head - not very pleasant. Aroma of pale malt, light hops, earth, flowers and some yeast. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour with a bunch of floral and herbal notes and a lot of cardboardie malt with little else. Aftertaste shows some yeast and a biting floral note that shows decently. Overall, way too much carbonation in this one and the hop flavours were a bit overshadowed by the malt and there wasn’t enough complexity throughout. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from New Beer Distributors in New York, New York on 13-July-2013 for US$2.00 sampled at home in Washington on 09-August-2013.

Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle. Orange with a white head. The aroma is full of orange citrus and biscuit malt notes. The flavor is very similar with a few additions. I get a lot of orange and pine notes as well as some earth and biscuit malt notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
