COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

It pours light amber with a slightly off white head. It has an aroma of floral hops, some citrus, bready and toffee malts. As it warms it takes on an apricot and peachy aroma. It has flavors or floral, and citrus with a backbone of bready malts and toffee flavors. It has a medium body feel to it. It has a moderately bitter finish that does last for a while highlighting the floral and fruit elements.

12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, off white head, with slight lacing, over an amber (SRM 9) particle laden body.....nose is pine, resin, grapefruit peel, light toasted malts, balance to the hops, no esters......taste is slightly sweet with honey notes, mild toasted malts, heavier pine, resin, citrus notes with grapefruit, tangerine tones, becoming moderately but softly hop bitter.....mouth feel, medium body, no alcohol, moderate carbonation, with light acid. This is a quite classic APA with appropriate hop aroma and bitterness. The only flaw is the appearance with the heavy tiny particles. BJCP 8/2/15/4/7

gripweed57 (1303) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAR 18, 2016
12 ounce bottle. Amber orange color topped by a small creamy beige head with nice lacing. Fresh spicy hop nose has floral and fruity notes. Bittersweet toasted malt flavor has a toffeeish character. Midtaste brings a big juicy hop burst. I get tangerine and grassy notes. Finish is spicy with tropical fruitiness. Quite complex and tasty.

obguthr (5422) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - FEB 24, 2016
Cat pee, grass, lemon zest, orange nose with marshmallow highlights. Cloudy copper, medium yellow head. Tea, grass, orange. Medium body, moderate carbonation. Decent, but doesn’t taste very fresh, which rather defeats the purpose of a wet hop beer. Bottle is undated, and I don’t recall sitting on it for very long.

J_man (900) - Tustin, California, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Mild hoppy aroma with a little bit of green grass. Clear medium copper color with a white head. Drag racing business with a nice drying effect on the tongue. Overall the flavor is fairly mild, but quite tasty with a nice light malt backbone to support it. The flavor builds as you go and becomes a bit more intense. Very tasty and refreshing, but not quite as hoppy as I was expecting.

iamwired (14) - Avenel, New Jersey, USA - FEB 10, 2016
Pleasant flowered hop aroma. Darker pale copper color. Slight haze but clear. Only partial lacing. Nice hop bite, not overpowering. Bitterness over the entire palate. Hop lingers for some time after initial taste, surprisingly reamerging at the rear of the mouth. A nice Victory indeed.

Pours clear copper with a modest off white head. Nose is light earthy hops. Simcoe flavor hops dominate the flavor before fading to a generic pale ale.
