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 I’ve had in awhile and I give it a lot of credit for being balanced, hop flavor delicious, and with malt nuance. It’s hard to pull that off. Yum.

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.

4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
(Bottle) Pours clear pale golden with a creamy off-white head. The aroma holds boatloads of pine, black currant tea, melon bubblegum, kiwi, herbs, grass, litter box and flowers. Undertones of banana candy, Swedish snus and white bready malt. Clean and refreshing on the nose. The flavor is light sweet, medium bitter and tiny acidic with citrus, pine, fruits, grass, flowers, herbs, black currant and white bread. The mouthfeel is clean, soft, light astringent and light tart with a light to medium carbonation. Yummy, green hoppy aftertaste. Light to medium bodied.

From a growler. Pours clear amber with a small head. The aroma is outstanding. Citrus and pine dominate with a bit of malt sweetness. The flavor has a bit of malt up front and the hops coming later. The finish is very dry.
