COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A uniquely satisfying ale, brewed exclusively with Canadian 2-Row Pale malt and Cenntenial hops. The use of only two ingredients highlights the fruity/citrus-like character of the Cenntenial hop, one of our favorite varieties from the Pacific Northwest.

Sampled at TWCP Beer Fest 2013. It poured a golden/amber color with a white head. The aroma was of some earth and vegetal notes. The taste was similar, with grain, malt and a lengthened bitter to finish. Not bad.

Finhead (1111) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Hazy, yellow-orange pour with a frothy, white head. The aroma has a nice mix of grapefruit and orange. It has a medium body with smooth texture and average carbonation. The taste is bittersweet with a slightly sweeter, quick finish.

Tasty beer. Draft pour at Cody's. Wheat and hoppy. Not the bad way. Very good for this style

mansquito (3106) - Nueva York, New York, USA - FEB 15, 2014
The Sampler, Brooklyn tap: Pours golden with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, with a little but of grass, and a thin bready backbone. Taste is slightly hoppy. Not very bitter. Light hops balanced with light maltiness. Not very exciting but perfectly drinkable.

Wild Onion calls this a blonde but I call it an American pale ale. It is golden orange, very hazy and has a thick, long lasting head of fine bubbles. This is a pretty mild beer but still nice and flavorful. The focus is on hops: in this case they are citric with a lavender underpinning. Being rather dry, this is a very drinkable beer complimented by medium fine carbonation and firm bitterness in the finish. This is definitely one of the breweries best.

Can courtesy of Kermis. Poured a cloudy medium amber with a thin broken white head. The aroma is hoppy with a little malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a bit zesty spice hop palate that disappears in an instant to be replaced with a watery malt finish. I could small this all night but it ultimately disappointed.

kermis (4256) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2013
Can shared. Pours cloudy orange with an off white head. Aroma of grassy hops, caramel malt. Flavour is moderate sweet and over moderate bitter with the hops disappearing immediately and being replace with metal and banana as well as the caramel malt. Light medium bodied with soft carbonation. A bit of a weird one..

Rather light with good hop presence. Poured folden even with a good head presence. Tasted like sugar and yeast.
