Aroma of resin, floral, grass, earthy hops; mild unripe fruit.cloudy. Appearance is pale cloudy golden with light orange hue. Large frothy off white head slowly fades to a thin collar and thin webs of lace. Crisp body, medium full, fluffy carbonation, light crisp finish. Slightly peppery and spicy from the start with a light fruit sweetness through the body and an excessively bitter and dry finish. Not much subtlety here for a sub 5% ABV APA.

ReggieDunlap (3047) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 21, 2012
Pours a clear bright yellow with a medium white head. Aroma has nice soft stonefruits and light grassy and pine notes. Flavor steps up the pine a bit...some spicy hop notes, soft and faintly bready pils malt backing but solid bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and silky and the finish is piney and dry. Bravo Jean!!

callmemickey (2654) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 13, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2013 Bright straw yellow body. Moderate sized white head and solid lacing. Nose is full of restrained pine, resin, grass, oranges, and a bit of lemon. Flavor leans toward the piney-grassy end of things and is complemented by a light grainy undercurrent. Medium bodied, assertive carbonation, dry, mildly bitter finish. Impressive APA. Rankings for cask versions from Magick Man’s Friday night casks:
1. Simcoe (5/3/13)
2. Mosaic (5/10/13)

Hazy dark golden color with a medium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, pine, citrus grass, and light malty notes. Taste of citrus, pine, grass,orange, light resin, and a lightly bitter finish.

GT2 (8352) - San Diego County, California, USA - AUG 5, 2012
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.

Pours golden-yellow with a big white head. Lots of sticky lacing. Big citrus hop aroma with nice sweet fruit there as well. Tons of hop flavor. Very drinkable. I get this one almost every time I visit the brew cafe.

Leighton (10681) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2013
Growler at RBWG. Pours clear, pale yellow with a fine, white foam head. Dry lemon in the nose. Light to medium sweet flavor, great balance, some lime, anise, lemon, dry pale malts, pine needles. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Very clean finish, lightly drying, light pale malt sugars, delicate lime. Really nicely balanced.

Growler @ Stephen’s house. Big thanks! Pours a hazy yellow appearance with a white head. Spicy, garlic, onion, herbal hoppy, citrusy fruity aroma. Quenching, spicy, garlic, grassy floral, a bit piney, lemony, onion flavor. Delicious.

Growler. Light yellow pour with a nice white head. Great lacing on this one if you’re 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. I’m convinced, this brewery lifts.
