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.

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.

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.

Aurelius (4578) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2014
Hoppy, catty aroma. Standard 12 oz longneck. OK label. Clear bronze, marzen-looking beer, thin head. Hoppy, soapy, dry, slightly toasty, fairly bitter. Nothing new here. Thickish mouthfeel. New Leaf Market.

superspak (3173) - Michigan, USA - NOV 13, 2014
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 9/10/2014. Pours slightly hazy orange/amber color with a 1 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, lime, pineapple, peach, mango, berry, herbal, floral, grass, pepper, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fantastic aromas with great complexity of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, lime, peach, pineapple, mango, berry, pepper, pine, herbal, floral, grass, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Good amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/lime zest, peach, pineapple, mango, berry, pepper, pine, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; with a great crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is an awesome wet hop pale ale. All around great complexity and balance of bright/juicy citrus/tropical hops and light-moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.

I enjoyed the harvest pils and this one was great too. Probably would have been even better fresher. Citrus more of the lime variety along with some floral notes in this beer. The aroma is delightful.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours transparent amber with a lacy, off-white head. Aroma of floral and lightly piney/citrusy hops, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a bitter finish. Average texture. A decent pale ale.

Strife21 (223) - North Wales, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Pours dark amber with head that quickly dissipates. Smell is piney, hops, resin, citrus and grass. Tasty is super piney, earthy hops and resin with notes of citrus and hay on the finish. Light body medium carbonation. Really like this.

12 Oz Bottle. Tasted on 11/11/14. Bottle from Total Wine Lewisville, TX. The beer pours to a light amber / dark golden color.. The aroma has a fantastic light & floral aroma. Taste is also equally nice with a great fresh hop flavor that finished smooth. Great beer overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
