Growler courtesy of Jdadmond at his place for Dadtoberfest. Pours a lightly hazed gold with a thin white head. Spicy hops, a touch of crisp malt, cool citrus, lemon and sweet candied citrus peels. Medium bodied, grainy and a touch of malt. Long grainy malt and quick bitterness. Tasty enough.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with some head. Aroma is dank grapefruit. Taste is a bit thin. Hop flavor doesn’t stay through. Picking up an odd peanut flavor.

Very pale for a pale ale, looks more like a wheat, white small head with tight bubbles. Lots of carbonation. Aroma: WOW! Very fresh hoppy aroma of pine, citrus, grapefruit, orange, just like fresh squeezed hop juice. Taste is very nice, hoppy with pine, fruits, bitterness, grassy, very fresh taste, i get almost no malts. A VERY nice APA and just as I ewant it. This and Mo is my favorites among APAs so far! =)

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: AUG 11, 2012 tap at brewpub. Hazy gold, thick frothy white head that laces everywhere. Super bright nose, ultra resinous with heavy orange, light sweetness with a few off paper hints. Flavor shows ultra bite, orange candies and earth slowly disappear across mid as beer dies in a dry, doughy end, absolutely no sugar anywhere, though salty orange returns in finish. Breezy and airy, it brings wonder and then disappears, teasing in that delicious, "I want more" way.

Tap at Tired Hands. Chill hazed light gold pour. Thick, sheety lace. Dense pillowy head retention. Mega dank tropical melon hop nose. Big cantaloupe and mango. Similar to Pliny the Younger. Taste is very dry and fully grassy bitter. No sugar or syrup or astringency. Very dry finish with full grassy bitterness. Delicate. Small malt richness and oatmeal as it warms. Very delicious.

Pale orange witha a white head. Aroma is fresh fruit, light pine, flora, and soft biscuit. Medium bodied. Flavor is citrus, fresh fruits, light floral, a bit of sweet biscuit malts, and light pine. Finish has a nice lingering bitterness. A real winner of a pale.
