4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 Re-rate because of bad rating earlier. No problem since this is an absolutely amazing beer.
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden with a lacy, frothy white head. Aroma if citrus, pine, grass, some caramel and malts. A bit creamy. Quite bitter, light sweet. Very well balanced, maybe the most balanced I’ve seen so far. Very drinkable. If I had to choose one beer I could have for the rest of my life, this would be it. Medium body with average carbonation.

On tap @CBC13. Aroma is very hoppy; graprefruit, citrus, and faint tropical fruit. Taste the same hop notes, malt and sweetness. Bitter and clean finish.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. 5/17/13. Pours pale gold with a thin, bubbly white head. Aroma is nice, simple, very aromatic; tropical fruits, sweetness, spice, citrus. Taste is similar; tropical fruits, a good amount of citrus and some spiciness. Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Some light lacing. Crisp, refreshing; full-flavored. This was excellent, no questions asked. However, it is absolutely not worth the hype that surrounds it.

Soft finish on a stellar beer. Took me a while to hunt it down but well worth the wait.

4.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pour is a gorgeous clear golden orange, with a fluffy white head that leaves a ton of lacing. Lots of bright fruity notes on the nose, very citrusy, some white grape, nice hoppy smell and there’s a hint of a grassy floral character there. Wow, amazing taste. More floral hops than I would have expected, but still its very much a citrus dominated taste with lots of orange and mango, slightly sweet with a dry finish, maybe some pineapple on the finish too. Easily the best and most well balanced pale ale I’ve had.

A gift from my friend Mike. Classic glowing orange color. Really nice toasty hop aroma. Call me crazy but it reminds me of a toasted English muffin with butter and honey. With a hop salad on top. A little thin in the middle but it adds to it’s drink ability. Awesome beer.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Draft at Hopleaf. Pours clear light amber with a foamy, slightly off-white head. Aroma is huge amounts of graprefruit; just incredible. Aroma also has notes of other fruits (citrus and tropical) and a touch of pine. Taste has a lovely balanced bitterness, with notes of grapefruit pith and rind, tropical fruits, hops and some light sweetness. Finish is clean and bright with a nice bitter bite. Really great stuff.
