Pours an orange rusty yellow, with a small dissipating head. Nose is citrusy but light. Taste is citrusy but on the light side, bit of a thirst quuencher for an APA. Finish is dry and bitter, very drinkable. Nothing special, but good. Quaff
Score 7 / 10

Pours amber-orange with a white head and aroma of hops and pine. Taste is subtle, of hops, pine, citrus, and floral notes with a dry, bitter finish. Very drinkable, lighter brew, not bad.

Ma première impression est vraiment positive, l’arôme est une combinaison délicate de sapin et de végétaux. En bouche, tout va bien, belle rondeur avec un côté végétal, fruité mais derrière l’arrière-goût, loin derrière, une présence terreuse qui empêche la buvabilité morbide. Correct.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Purchased at Binnys in Chicago, IL, enjoyed after a long work week. Appearance is a pretty clear amber with a rich frothy white head that laces to the glass. Aroma is very rich in hops with lemon notes, a bit of grapefruit as well, also beady malt. Taste is pretty hoppy for a pale ale with a really nice bitter finish that also goes down pretty smooth. Pretty tasty stuff, I’m using the word pretty a lot in this review. It’s pretty good!

Pour is a clear golden color with a small white head, rather lively carbonation. Nose is of light fruits mostly. Taste is similar, light hops and fruits throughout, no bitter bite anywhere which is nice.

Got a fresh bottle, and the aroma most certainly said so - like fresh spring water, fresh bread, tangerine and hops! The flavor was crisp, with grassy notes and light malts before a delicate hop finish. At 5.2% this is incredibly drinkable, I should have gotten more than one.

Draught pours a light amber, cloudy yellow. Aromas are cereal and floral with some grass. Tastes were some cereal from the malt, balance by some nice floral, citrus and grassy notes. Body is lighter and the finish is nice and hoppy with a dry edge. Overall a great pale

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Shared with Pat. Poured clean copper. With good head and decent retention. Nose very oniony with sweet malt and light citrus aroma. Sweet malty taste with hops, onion and a little citrus coming through. Good mouth feel. I do not believe this bottle was that fresh. I’ve had this before with more floral aroma and taste.

4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Pours a murky amber with a white foamy head that is slow to dissipate. Smells strongly of cascade hops (grassy) as well as orange and biscuit. Until reading reviews of this I didn’t notice the taste of orange but pouring this in a glass I get more of that and the biscuit taste for the malt. Usually I drink this from the bottle and notice how its probably one of the most hoppy pale ales out their. Gives it more character than other Pale ales and makes an interesting and easily drinkable brew. Delicious
