Growler citrus aroma. Light bready malt and hint of that cat pee aroma. Flavour is nice lemony citrus. Smooth body medium bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Part of a flight at the taproom. Clear golden yellow pour with a small white head. Pine and citrus city. Bitter and clean. Really enjoyed this one. Nice, hoppy pale ale.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Clear yellow, and it doesn’t look like much...but beyond the appearance, it is much more interesting. Lovely aroma and flavor, with fresh hops bursting from it. Great--perhaps it is the Simcoe that stands out. (on tap at brewpub)

On tap at Brewpub. Yellow golden in color with a small white head. Citrus aroma and flavor with some resin notes. Light sweet body. A very hoppy pale ale.

Growler shared by drabmuh. Dude, you rock! The beer is light golden hued and pretty clear, sporting a small white head that leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. The aroma is fresh and inviting. Hops all the way. Floral notes and citrus. A delicious beer, and refreshing. On the lighter side, and at a mere 5.4%, one could easily go through a few pints of this. Good stuff!

BVery (6266) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - DEC 22, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Tap at the brewpub. Clear yellow to light gold pour with a small white head. Mostly pineapple on the aroma and taste. Crisp palate. Slightly bitter late but pretty well balanced.

MadIndian (2380) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2012
A serious hop lovers brew. Huge hop, mild fruit aroma. A serious hop, floral and citrus taste with a bitter pineapple finish. Now here’s the weird thing. I’m usually on here complaining about eers not being blended properly. This one is over the top hop. However, it works. Great brew.

Had it on cask, creamy yellow color, slowly became more visible. Tall white head, had a light bitter taste.

brokensail (10921) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 16, 2011
A: This one pours amber in color with a thin layer of off-white foam. S: Smells kind of funky at first, almost like feet. That gives way to a pretty malt forward aroma of toffee and bread. There is a nice floral hop character to this beer as well as some grass. T: The flavor is also quite malt forward. Lots of toffee and bread, maybe a bit of toast. The hop profile on the flavor is surprisingly different to what I picked up on the nose. Definitely a bit of grass but also some grapefruit and other fruit notes with a moderate bitterness. M: This one is medium in body with a moderate level of carbonation. D: The nose was just a little too off-putting for me. The flavor was pretty decent, however.

Winter 2010 growler. Nice, sweet hop aroma. Dark gold body with little visible carbonation. White head. Discernible hop profile. Not quite balanced enough; should be sweeter. A little thin and weaker than you’d expect for a winter apa. Otherwise solid. Brought it to a holiday party and one guy really liked it and the other, whose go to beer is much golden, didn’t really care for it.
