This was really tasty. Bright hops, green citrus notes. Light on the palate. Really astounding that a simple pale is this good. And @ 4% sooo sessionable. Iíll be stoked to try this again.

Light straw bonde pour with one finger white head. Nose is very nice, pineapple and citrus with some fruity overtones. Very hoppy with pine apple at the front of the mouth. Flavor wraps up nicely with a very light bitterness.

Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured golden/amber with a nice retaining, white head. Easy drinking pale ale. Good hop character with a bready malt balance. Some esters too along with a citrus hop spice. Nothing too crazy going on here, but a great session brew.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12oz can pours with a clear deep copper body that supports a nice off white head. The aroma offers up citrus hop notes, a light sense of dry malts, a sliver of lime and a faint earthy tea note. The taste is pretty crisp. I get citrus grapefruit and tangerine mixing with a lightly roasted malt note and then it seems to grow into a faint earthy black tea like hoppiness. Into the finish a mild cereal malt graininess joins and takes this into the after taste. Nice Pale. Just the right amount of depth yet plenty refreshing and sessionable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Samís, Durham, sometime last fall. Golden orange pour, minimal carbonation, just a few apple juice bubbles. Sharpish nose, more lemongrass bite than the pungency of most wet hops Iíve had. Occasional sweetness in the taste, but a lot more leafy and sharply bitter notes. Decent brew, but wasnít crazy about it.

on draft and i hope this is the right beer i drank. they called it wyld extra pale. but had kind of a belgium funky yeast on the nose along with some hop action. weird combo. poured a hazy yellow color with white head. it was a citrus hop aroma. flavor was a touch sour and citrus hop and funk. decidely different and i dont think this is a real style but hey this is my opinion only. not one i would search out.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2013 Really similar to Wyld. Iíd say this was a little more herbal and less fruity; but Iím not sure I would have noticed if I wasnít comparing them side-by-side.
11/5/13: Fruity hop aroma and flavor; citrus/orange/tropical, maybe passion fruit? Sweet, light bread malt flavor. Seems like this is more distinct from Wyld than last yearís.

On draught. Pours yellow gold with a thin white head that quickly fades. Weak aroma of citrus and floral hops. The flavor is mild malt with the same weak citrus and floral hops. On the lighter side of medium bodied. So so.
