COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Patrickctenchi (6321) - 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.

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.

imdownthepub (13708) - 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 (10933) - 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.

Thechasm442 (907) - Chicago heights, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2016
Can served in a pint glass. Pours a hazy burnt orange with an average off white head. Aroma is pine, bread, and mild citrus. Taste is pine resin, more bread, a little caramel, and faint grassy hops. Sorta on the thin side. Just ok.
