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.

Wonderful juicy pine nose. Pine is the forefront in the flavor but there are lush fruity notes that compliment it quite nicely. Bitterness does not linger. Immensely drinkable.

orangesol (937) - Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 25, 2014
Served on-tap at Al’s of Hampden. Pours clear amber orange with a nice one finger tall white head, quickly dissipating down to a light film, leaving sticky webs of lace on the glass.

Smells of mildly toasted caramel malt, some pine resin, bit of grass and a touch of citric find. Taste is mainly the caramel sweetness and sticky pine resin with some backing chewiness from the malt. Slick, bitter feel with a bitter-sweet finish that lingers long after consumption.

Overall a decent wet hop "pale ale" that has some decent flavor and balance but never really wow’s me in any facet. Nice to try but they make much better hoppy beers than this one.

hfmejias (890) - Dover, Delaware, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured clear, dark Amber with a nice off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and herbal notes combined with some grain and caramel notes. Bitter taste, hoppy and with a dry finish. Very nice beer, very enjoyable.

12 oz bottle into a jar glass. Clear and orange appearance with a beige head. Aroma of fresh and juicy hops, toasted grains and light tea. Similar flavor, medium bitterness and light sweetness. Medium body. Pretty good overall.

Bottle. Pours a golden orange with a decent head and juicy fruit aromas. Flavor is nice and juicy with a kind of citrus and tropical hops presence. Very enjoyable beer.

nearbeer (3936) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 21, 2014
12 oz. bb 10 Mar 2015. Clear orange-amber with a lasting spit of cream. Large and pleasant aroma of green herb, resin, honey, darkish toast, citrus zest and caramel. Tastes of green herb, citrus zest, toffee, pecan and toast. Long finish has some touches of mint and flowers. Light-medium body is smooth and slightly oily with a great balance, and a nice low-medium carbonation. More in IPA territory, but I ain’t complainin’. Most of the harvest hop ales I’ve had are too singularly hoppy or overdone, but this one has the both right mix of hops and malt.

Huhzubendah (2755) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Copper transparent body with a soapy white head. Fresh hop, pine aroma with a hint of spice. A touch of black pepper in the flavor with grassy and herbal notes as well. Hop forward with a light warmth in the finish. Gentle bitterness lingers. Tasty.

Ontape (423) - Valley Village, California, USA - NOV 21, 2014
Last of a 4-pack that I enjoyed. Pours a pretty clear copper with a nice white head. Big tropical hop (Mosaic?) nose punches through first while restrained caramel malt sits in the back. Solid bitterness and moderate sweetness. Strong flavors but still an easy drinker.

Shared by Todd at the meeting, thanks for the opportunity! Deep golden color juicy citrus with a hint of pine, light bready maltiness. Nice beer.
