COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity Pale Ale is a light brown to copper colored beer whose rich caramel malt flavors are offset by rich hop palette that combines the aroma of a evergreen forest on a summer day with earthy and spicy notes.

Copper tones and biscuit malts and yet some sweetness. Very nice and not the usual APA .

Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy orange color with a one finger head of off white foam. The head has a good level of retention maintaining strength for a long time before fading away to leave tons of thick foam on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a bready and yeasty smell, taking on a drier bready aroma. Along with these strong aromas comes a little bit of a light herbal smell as well. Taste – The taste begins with a very bready taste mixed with a strong yeastiness as would have been anticipated from the nose. These tastes create the base flavor of the brew and are the dominant flavors throughout. There is a bit of lemon citrus upfront which fades a bit as the taste advances being replaced by some grapefruit and herbal hop tastes. A little bit of grassiness comes at the very end, leaving one with a lightly hopped but thick bready taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thick and chewy for a brew for a pale with a carbonation level that is rather low. The chewy body was actually kind of good for the big yeasty bread tastes of the brew. Overall – A very thick and bready pale ale with a lighter overall hop hit. Not a bad brew overall, although a little more hop and a tad less thickness may have better suited the style

maekchu (3460) - Hirakata, JAPAN - NOV 1, 2015
Bottle from Kumiyama AEON Mall liquor shop. Thick caramel nose, veyr fruity, bready, biscuity. Hazy copper/brown color. Malty initial, quite earthy, gently tart in mid palate, spicy, with light but clear hopping in finish. Medium body. Thick stuff, more ESB or light barleywine-like than pale. A touch high in alc.

shoulderbroken (3755) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2015
At Grub. Dark Amber colour, aroma is light lemony hops. Taste is biscuit malt forward with lemony hop finish. Not overly bitter, little bit spicy, speculoos, bit of brown sugar, quite nice.

maxwelldeux (4348) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - MAY 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours a very cloudy amber color with a moderate off-white head on there. Nose is a bit fruity and lightly grassy, but does seem to be a little past its prime (thanks, Total Wine). Taste is a bit bitter, but with some stale earthiness coming through. All in all, average at best.

mjg74 (3018) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 28, 2015
Bottle (6.1%) from LifeSource. Dark amber brownish in color. Somewhat hazy. Bready nose with a bit a little hoppiness. Some dry earthiness up front. Has characteristics of English hoppiness. Pretty good maltiness as well. Mouthfeel is pretty full. Tastes like a strong bitter or something.

Fatehunter (2249) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2014
Pours a thin head on a cloudy medium straw colored body. The aroma is sharp lemon with a little pine and grain. The taste is grain, moderate bitterness with a dry bitter finish. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Refreshing.

OldMrCrow (2405) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle.

Explodes out of the bottle all over the kitchen counter. Orange tan pour, yellowed head, sediment. Bready aroma, a bit of metal. ESB elements. Sweet with orchard fruit. Aged barleywine caramels (what’s that about?). An unusual APA to say the least, but entirely tasty.

Hanuta06 (444) - Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Serving: from tap at The Noble Fir. Aroma: couldn’t detect. Appearance: average-sized, frothy, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-amber body. Taste: lightly sweet, caramel malt initial flavor and finish with short duration. Palate: medium body with watery texture and lively carbonation. Overall: not bad. It was sweet but not overly so. I’d drink it again.

anders8000 (390) - aarhus.c., DENMARK - AUG 26, 2012
Poured deep bed with a thin head. A mild pale with forward malt tones and low hop resins and bitterness. Some yeast esters, light fruits, malt sweetness and a mild grassy, hop floralness
