We utilize two types of American hops in such a way that we put the flavor of these hops center stage and let their bitterness fade into the background. The hop-forward character of this Pale Ale shines through in the unique, tropical fruit flavor of two American hop varieties. Enjoy this offering with a fresh approach to how a Pale Ale expresses its inner hoppiness.

BlackForestCO (978) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - APR 28, 2012
Can. Poured a clear copper-orange color with a moderate, bubbly off-white head that faded to a bubbly layer and left some thick spots of lacing. Aroma of floral hops, along with some light pine and citrus fruit, and a strong caramel maltiness with a light mineral undertone. Smooth, lightly sweet entry with some soft pine and a light citrus bite transitions into a lightly dry, floral hoppiness paired with a faint toasted graininess that lingers into the lightly dry finish where it’s paired with some lightly sweet caramel. Low carbonation and light dryness contribute to the medium mouth feel. Overall, it’s decent, but doesn’t stand out in any area.

Light haze on this gold beer, tidy cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and fairly crisp. Light malts. Gueuze! Wet wood! Dried fruits! Light crisp finish. Infected or what?

BeardedAvenger (599) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2017
Can at Ogilvy, Woking. Sour fruit aroma. A hazy opaque Amber. Massive white head. 5/5 for me. Initial bitter impact. This then smooths out. Sharp grapefruit. Light to medium bodied. Relatively water, however it does develop a soft creamyness into the finish.

rollinsr (660) - Atlanta, GEORGIA - JAN 27, 2017
Pours a slightly hazy amber after exploding out of the bottle. Got about a third of the beer in the glass before it foamed over again. Aroma is estery with mild sap character. Flavor is sweet with only a hint of citrus. Not much bitterness to it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Patrickctenchi (6468) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Bottle: Hazy amber with a giant off-white head. Caramel, lemon aroma. Taste is fairly acidic, lemon, orange, caramel malt. Decent orange-peel bitter. Slightly rough-edged, but not too bad.

crispaire (198) - - DEC 13, 2016
poured from can. i’m not sure if this beer was past its prime, but i got noticeable whiffs of cinnamon, stale bread, and malt. the flavors weren’t much better. non of the tropical hops were present as advertised by the brewery. poor example of a pale ale.

douglas88 (8930) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 23, 2016
Can. Pours a lovely orange color with a large white head. A light grainy floral nose. The flavor is sweet toasted malt, caramel, pine, light hops. Earthy core. Ok.

imdownthepub (14221) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2016
Keg at The Well & Bucket, Shoreditch, London. Cloudy gold to amber with white head. Quite a thin beer, there is a slight resinous character, sharp, pine needle then a light, indistinct fruitiness. Some floral hints perhaps but all a little underwhelming.

shrubber85 (11215) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle. Orange, caramel malt, and lemon peel aroma. Dark amber with nice light tan head. Lightly sweet citrus, caramel malt, and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Body a bit light. Nothing bad, just kind of boring.
