Growler @ the Mini-Tasting, Naples. Cheers to Crosamich for scoring this. The pourís light gold with a tiny white head. Light floral hop nose. A bit oí pee. Some lemon rind and general citrus. Hints of sweet canned pears. The taste is more of the same. Light pear and white grape. Moderate citrus hop bite. Super light palate. Only a touch of bready malt. Soft carbonation. Overall, pretty refreshing.

Pours a slightly hazy yellow, almost no head. Nose is piney with hints of tangerine and coconut. very nice mouth feel, very bitter and the ABV of 5.2% is of course barely noticeable. Clean finish, lovely pine cone. Very drinkable.

Growler. Light yellow pour with a nice white head. Great lacing on this one if youíre kinky and into that sort of thing. Juicy fruit hop aroma. Flavor had some notes of lime zest that kep the beer from being one dimensional. Malt takes a backseat on this one. Clean finish, crisp, minimal bitterness. Iím convinced, this brewery lifts.

Growler at home with Aaron. Pour is golden yellow with a fluffy white head and great lacing. Grassy, weedy, grapefruity, light citrus, biscuity, straw, a touch of earth, and dough in the aroma. Taste is weedy, grassy, pungently juicy, tangy, biscuity, herbs, fruity, and light bread with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Really nice session pale ale and a real treat to try.

Growler, thanks Frank! Pours very slightly hazed golden with plenty even white head that settles down to a uniform layer. Tangerine citrus, some onion and a hint of cattiness. Very light and balanced and with malt and yeast really just proping up the hop aromatics. Light crackery malt, some peppery yeast character, slightly citrus and bitter hop finish. Drinks super easy.

Growler shared by GT2 at RBWG welcome dinner. Cheers, GT! Pours a hazy yellow with a white head. Nose is tangerine, orange, citrus, and light pine. Flavor follows with a bit of fruit, orange, tangerine, slight pine, and some caramel. Light to medium in body and a nice pale overall.

On tap at the brewpub. Not surprised to see that this gets a 100% for style at the time of rating and before having looked at any Tired Hands ratings, it was easily my favorite of the seven small beers I tried. Aroma beams forth with good tropical hop resins, steady and sturdy. Flavors start with the ethereal light and fresh green hop qualities and then merge beautifully into a n almost nutty malt base. One of the more broadly complex Pale Ales Iíve had in awhile and I give it a lot of credit for being balanced, hop flavor delicious, and with malt nuance. Itís hard to pull that off. Yum.
