4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A - pours light orangy amberish yellow. Nice color. Low white head that doesn't last. S - this is a nice clean pale. Simple but bold and really nice. Fruity nose, citrus and a hint of tropical fruits, pine and light dank hops to a nice biscuity vegetal malts. M - smooth drinkable with a hint of bitterness and a nice malty end, neither of which is heavy handed. Really well composed. T - taste follows the nose well with the fleshy citrus leading into pine and a light grassy note. Palate is a nice biscuit and vegetal malts with some caramel malts as well. O - a nice pale. The best? Maybe not but damn. Good none the less. 4.2

Bottle poured into a tulip. Pours lighter yellow with medium white head. Great nose. Clean citrus and a little bit of pine. Taste is also very clean. Light citrus and simple hop bitterness. Probably the best pale ale out there.

Strong danky and fruity hops in the nose. Medium hop bitterness, flavor is full of grassy dank. Slightly sweet. Not bad, but a touch sweet.

In a word: phenomenal. The grassy citrus organic flavor and hops don’t overwhelm, but rather come together to create a slightly bitter yet extremely drinkable pale ale. Every sip you take, there’s something new in here to discover, it’s an endlessly enjoyable ale that shouldn’t be so hard to find.

One of the best beers I have ever had the pleasure of spending a night out with. Great bitter/citrus finish that stimulates all those hedonistic synaptic connections in my GM. I would battle a city of Zombies for one more bottle. Must extend a thank you to those boys at FFF!

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a hazy bright orange with a thick creamy white foam head.
Smells of grapefruit and lots of tropical fruits along with a nice malty sweetness.
Tastes is similar to the nose. I fall in love with this beer every time I have it. Loads of tropical fruits and grapefruit. Taste starts off a bit sweet rounding into a nice clean bitterness on the finish. Very well balanced beer as some malt presence is there, but the citrusy hops are the star of the palate.
Fairly light beer with a good carbonation level, but still a slight bit of stickiness.
One of the best pale ales I’ve ever had. I can’t wait until they start bottling this. We got a growler to go and ended up finishing it in the hotel room. I could drink this beer all day.

12 oz bottle from a trade with BrewJay. The pour is lightly hazed orange copper with a well formed 2 inch egg white head. The aroma is resin citrus peel hop, bright cracker malt, and a pleasant mineral earthiness. The taste is a spicy resin, some citrus peel bitterness, touch of grapefruit, the cracker malt, and more of the resin mineral in the finish. Bright flavors. The palate is light to medium bodied, spritzy carbonation, and the dryish mineral earth finish. Nice one, thanks Jay.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz bottle. Pours a clear deep golden copper color, with a billowing egg shell head, that falls slowly to a cap and leaves heavy rocky lacing. Big Citra hop aroma with, grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, mango and lemon rind along with some light pine and floral notes. The taste mirrors the aroma, with a fresh and biting grapefruit character that controls this with a zesty bitterness that spreads all over. Balanced through the middle by a sticky sweet blend of tropical fruitiness and sweet malts. Which then finishes with lingering dry notes of pine and bitter pith. Smooth, dry, and sticky mouthfeel, with a medium body and moderat prickly carbonation.
