12oz bottle .. . Pours a deep yellow gold .. medium foam .. great lacing .. . lots of flowers, citrus, and fresh pine .. . clean mouth .. . a great assertive pale .. . . If trees could scream, would we be so cavalier about cutting them down? We might, if they screamed all the time, for no good reason..

bottle thanks to secret santa poured a light amber in color with a thin covering of off white head. aroma has citrus, pines, caramel malt, and some resins. mouth feel coats well and there is good carbonation to push this across. flavor has medium bitterness, citrus, some caramel malt, and a finish that is good and drying. an ipa. in my eyes and certainly showcases the hops well but does not get juicy like I had hoped.

Bottle via kbutler1, thanks for this awesome extra! Pours an orange to dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is citrus, more on the orange side than lemon or grapefruit. This stuff smells like heaven. Taste is off the charts for a pale ale. Crisp hops with more balanced malt/bitterness. Some more orange/citrus notes and just an awesome beer to drink. How I wish I could have access to this stuff off the shelf and fresh.

piscator34 (2034) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - DEC 19, 2011
Bottled sample via oakbluff. Dark gold in colour with fairly strong carbonation. Aromas are of orange, sour peach, and grass, along with both grainy pale and light caramel mats. The hops translate to more of a white grapefruit and green grape combo in the mouth, backed my crispy pale malt. Medium to light bodied with a finish that is both bitter and grainy. An enjoyable pale ale, but not the total hop bomb I was expecting.

Bottle many thanks to ICEatALAMO. Clear golden copper pour, with a nice foamy off-white head. Beautiful hoppy, fruity nose. Same nice hoppy flavor, pine, citrus, caramel, and sweet fruit. Lightly grassy. Light on the palate, very refreshing. Very glad to try this!

Received in trade from phisigben, thanks for the opportunity. Pours a slightly cloudy golden color with a huge fluffy white head that displays great retention and lacing. Smells of citrus, pine and resin mostly with hints of green onion and garlic. If there is malt in here I can’t find it. Taste is citrus, pine, resin, and green onion with maybe some bits of bready malt if I squint a bit. Long lingering onion hop bite in the finish. Medium to light body with a moderate level of carbonation with a sharp resinous mouthfeel. I’m glad I got the opportunity to try this brew, but to call this a pale ale is quite a stretch, we could safely call this an IPA. That being said, this is a great IPA.

Plovmand (6757) - Helsinge, DENMARK - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Thanks Kingcecil for sharing!! It pours hazy deep golden with a medium and steady creamy off white head. The aroma is first of all pine and citrus with some underlying peach and mango. The flavour is highly fruity and citrussy with notes of malt and pine. Long fruity hoppy finish. My kind of hoppy pale ale.

12oz. Bottle: Got in trade from Phaleslu; THANKS Peter! Aroma of hops, grass, citrus, pineapple, peach, apricot, hop oil, skunk, Citra hops, marijuana, and a hint of pale malt. Poured amber/orange in color with a large, creamy, dense, off-white head that diminished but lasted throughout. Cloudy. Sparkling. Full of tiny particles throughout. Excellent lacing. Flavor is light to medium sweet and medium to heavily bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, grass, citrus, hop oil, slight caramel, and a hint of malt. Medium body. Oily, then dry texture. Average carbonation. Medium sweet, medium to heavily bitter, hop, pine, citrus, hop oil, skunk finish is dry.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2013 Draft at FFF way before all the hype. Hazy, golden tan with a lacy off-white head. Smooth, medium to full bodied. Grainy solid hop tones, fresh and enjoyable. Soapy hops, but an excellent balance with the malt. Well done, well executed, but pretty straightforward and tame. 7-3-7-3-16 Just kept my brewpub rate here for shits and giggles. This beer is awesome. Always a treat. 12oz bottle. Scooping up some fresh sixpacks from the brewery is always a treat. Green onion, garlic, very earthy, zesty hops. Fresh, clean, bold hop aroma. Frothy off white head on top of a filtered orange-tan body. On the fuller side of medium bodied, very drinkable. Extra points for seriously raising the bar for American Pale Ale.
