COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Carrying on the long and noble tradition of English and American pale ales, our Palindrome Pale Ale is substantially hopped, moderately bitter light copper ale. It begins with a zesty hop aroma that calls to mind citrus and pine. The bright spiciness of the hops continue to dance on the palate sip after sip. In the background, theres a solid structure of caramel malt sweetness keeping everything in balance but the Cascade and Centennial hops are the stars of the show.

On draught at the Vintage brewpub in Madison, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper amber colored brew with a thick and rocky off-white head that slowly dissipates and leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of typical Three Cís hops, a hint of caramel malt and some mild spice. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of hops in flavor with a touch of caramel malt. Finish is a touch on the sweet side, nice balanced hop finish and then a lingering bitterness that really comes out in the finish. One of the best "Sneak Bitterness" (ie: increases more bitter during the aftertaste) APAs Iíve tried.

TheAlum (5687) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 6, 2012
Sampler flight on tap at Vintage Brewery (Madison, WI). Pours a rich amber hue, good glowing fiery Jurassic Park glow offers some sunfire, orange, and sunset. A frothy whitish head sits atop, dies to a film, laces small. Aromas are good citrusy girth, grapefruit and lemons meet gentle tropical influence, offering mellow mandarin orange, touches of mango, dry bready and pale malts. Rich nose. Initial is lighter bodied offering mellow fruit dominance up front, tropical and oranges, some mellow pineapple. Mellow bitterness grows as we go forward, offering some crisp bready malts, touches of biscuit, toast. Fairly fruit forward and lighter fare, rich grapefruit and tropical melange are enjoyable, a touch of bubblegum and decent bitterness into the finish, yet still fairly clean. Nice.

Clean golder pour. Very crisp, not sure if that translates right, but I know what I mean. Seems to have a nice balance of the hops and the malts. Nothing lingers too long, which I like. Not sure where this came from but I get hints of butterscotch and nuts in this one...

triguy84 (235) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 4, 2010
Pours a clear copper, then whispy head that lasts. Hint of citrus hops and malt aromas. Citrus hops flavors, didnít get the caramel/malt. Moderate hop bitterness, medium body. The hop flavor overpowers the malt but itís not a strond hop flavor. Not bad.

Ughsmash (7128) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2010
On tap at Vintage. Poured crystal-clear lighter coppery-amber with a dense, sticky cap of white head. The aroma opened with sweet biscuit and fruity notes that were quickly sweetened up by aspartame character.. light earthy accents on the back. The flavor found sweet pale and fruity malts at the core.. increasingly bitter as it progressed, with pine, citrus, and earthy notes present.. that bitterness stuck for a while on the finish. Medium-bodied and sharp-ish on the palate.. just flowed OK.

On tap. A very pale amber. Aroma is lighter and more floral of a hop profile. Some deeper grapefruit and pine notes. A little light on the malt backbone, decent bitterness and finish.

esjaygee (3903) - Oak Creek, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 16, 2011
On tap at Vintage Brewpub. Clear amber with a thin off-white head. Aroma is a mix of floral and citrus hops with some caramel beneath it. Taste is more on the floral side with caramel and light citrus. Mild bitterness and a touch of off-flavor on the finish.

nuplastikk (4351) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Tap at VIntage. Filtered brown-tan wit a thin creamy off-white head. Smooth malty body, with a little bit of an underlying alcohol. Respectably hopped, but not much going on, a little soapy. Too strong to session, and not complex enough to sip at. Boring. OK.

At the brewery before the penn state Wisconsin game. Go Penn State. Pours a see through brownish yellow with a light white head that fades to a ring. Smell is if light hops and sweet malt. Taste is hoppier than smell and the bitterness lingers. Not really balanced but I like hops so itís good for me.

This was poured from a keg at vintage brewing in Madison, WI. Yellow pour with tons of white head. Fruity peach taste. Slight hops. Easy drinker
