COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
An American Pale Ale. For batch number 1500, Josh & Brian decided to brew a big hoppy beer, yet make it quaffable by keeping the alcohol level down. Turns out everyone liked it so much, that it is now brewed year-round. Loads of Simcoe and Amarillo hops are blended in the fermenter, just after fermentation has finished, to impart a huge aroma of pine and citrus.

Pours a hazy yellow with a fluffly two finger head that fades to a cap leaving behind tons of lace. Hops galore is what can easily describe the taste. Tons of orange, citrus, and some chronic in there, no grain to speak of. Citrus and Pine hit the pallate first followed by the wonderful pine and resinous flavors of the hops. A bit of crystal malt sweetness comes in at the end to help bring the beer together. This may as well be an IPA, which is where my one complaint comes. With the huge hop aroma and aftertaste Id like a bit more malt to balance the beer out. All together a very good hop forward beer, may as well be an American IPA.

Cloudy gold color with a healthy white head of foam. Juicy, bright citrus with a dialed-in balance of cereal malt. Up there with Lagunitas Born Yesterday Pale Ale in being one of the greats.

From a bottle. Just what you would expect, well made with a big slap of hops, super sessionable.

deyholla (10460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 1, 2016
On tap at the Office. Pours a clear gold with an orange hue with a white head that dissipates to to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of grass with earthy grains and a hint of earthy pine. Flavor is very similar with grass supposed by earthy grains and earthy pine.

MrHangover (4134) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden beer with a thinner white head on top. Aroma of grapefruit, oranges and herbal hoppyness. Flavor is mildly bitter, citrussy again and a bit dull overall. An enjoyable drink for sure, but not as fragrant or full flavored as Id hoped. Carbonation is medium, aftertaste is short and light bitter.

Cest bon. Trs aromatique. Nez trs orange, assez tropical (mangue, papaye. Tout petit fond rsineux. Bouche plus aqueuse que ce que jesprais. Mais on retrouve bien les agrumes, un lger maltage qui accompagne bien le tropical.

MelvinKalksma (1115) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - SEP 22, 2016

Aroma:
Medium aroma of malts, caramel, fruit, hops and citrus.

Appearance:
Turbid golden/amber beer with a slight/medium off-white head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts medium sweet with malts, caramel and fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with hops and citrus.

Overall:
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Super malty and fruity together with a soft palate, making it extremely drinkable and refreshing. Does nothing wrong, but never stands out at the same time.

Muggus69 (2195) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 27, 2016
355mL bottle from International Beer collector. BB 01/19/16 Orange gold body, dense white head. Moderate intensity nose - peach, apricot & citrus hops, toasty, biscuity almost vanilla-like malt. Full bodied, nice touch of chewiness about it, moderate-low carbonation. Apricot/stonefruit & melon hop notes continue on the body, that nice sweet biscuity malt in there too, suprisingly restrained bitterness for style (especially for an American one!). Quite enjoyed this one!

Pours copper orange with a white head. The aroma had grapefruit, point and lightly toasted malt. It has a medium crisp body with mild carbonation. The gate has the aroma notes and is very classic West coast. The grapefruit zest really jumps on the finish. Quite good.

From a bottle into a Sierra Nevada tulip glass. Pours transluscent amber gold with head and lace. Aroma of malt, grains and floral hops. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of rich grains, pale malt, cereal, straw hops, minerals. Overall full bodied, flavorful.
