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.

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.

Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours clear copper with a creamy beige head. Hoppy aroma - citrus and stone fruit? Med body at least. Flavor is hoppy - citrus/light stone fruit/tea? Its towards dry and decently bitter. The (to me) complex hop flavor is tasty and intriguing. Good stuff.

ContemplateBeer (1878) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - DEC 21, 2015
12 oz. bottle from Liquor Barn (Jefferson Commons). Aroma: Light to moderate floral wet hop presence; lighter garden herbs and a touch of cereal. Appearance: Copper body with soft carbonation holding up a thick tan head that fades into a firm cap. Flavor: Healthy floral hop up front with cereal coming in thereafter; the finish has an herbal bitterness and is dry. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Even at a couple of months old, this is still a very nice ale. Id love to have this fresh next year, and will look to do so.

dnstone (2431) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Pours a copper color with an off white sudsy head. Piney, floral aromas. Light bodied, quite dry with an intense piney hop character that lingers and hits the sides of the mouth. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ughsmash (7465) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 20, 2015
Bottled. Poured medium ambery-golden with a splotchy white head and some fine sediment suspended in there. The aroma picked up sweet caramel afeel and ccented by pine and orangey hops.. getting to be a little old, but nice. The flavor found tart orange and peppery notes over sweet caramel.. ok. Light-medium bodied with a decent feel and flow.

ARH (1045) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - DEC 14, 2015
UPDATED: DEC 21, 2015 12oz bottle, poured into a snifter. The aroma is bright with citrus and floral notes and subtle bread and caramel undertones. The beer is a brilliant orange amber with a soft, white head that has good lace, and decent retention. The taste is a medium, balanced bittersweet. The texture is oily and slick with a foamy carbonation and a light body that?s flavored with bitter, juicy, citrus notes as well as bread and a light toffee. The finish is slick with bitter, waxy citrus and bread crust leading to an aftertaste that?s lightly astringent, and refreshing with bitter citrus.

hopwine (661) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Nose is mango, grass, pine. Flavor has a moderate bready/caramel malt presence to support the hops. Pretty simple but well balanced and tasty

Pours with a nice white head, caramel in color. The aroma is powerful, citrus, light floral. Very nice! Nice medium body ale with a sweet caramel malt, well balanced citrus flavor and smooth finish. Very well done.

tillmac62 (560) - Gaffney, South Carolina, USA - DEC 4, 2015
EBD 3/7/16. Clear medium amber (dark copper) pour. World class head volume, lacing and retention. Delicious world class nose of hops over a light biscuit with a touch of caramel. Citrus, pine, tropical - you name it, its there. Light body with a smooth texture plus some oily hop resin. Normal carbonation with a bit of effervescence in the middle and a fair burst in the finish. The flavor profile is outstanding. It begins with a wave of blended hop flavor that, like the nose, runs the full hop spectrum. Bitterness is quite tame and arrives in the middle with a balancing biscuit that is perfectly balanced - not sweet, but there. As the finish approaches, light caramel notes appear as does just a touch of herbal pepper. The finish provides the strongest citric element as a subtle rind bitterness lingers.

Bottle. Clear Amber with a big fluffy head. A crisp hoppy punch balanced with a strong malt base. Light caramel, tea, spice, citrus. Very good, fresh, full flavor but, very sessionable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
