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 I’d 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.

Bottled 355ml (Beer Republic, bottled 27/03/17)
Slightly hazy yellow color, small white head. Peach, pine, citrus in the nose. Light-bodied. Pale malty, a bit fruity, grapefruity and pine hops. Some fruity sweetness in the aftertaste. Easy-going well-brewed APA.

bryanbrews (1) - Modesto, California, USA - MAR 25, 2017 does not count
Bottled and opened after 11 days. Aroma slight fruity, estery, bubblegum. Appearance clear and very pale orange, many dry hop floaties add minor haze. Tastes sweet light/medium, bitter medium/heavy, sour light. Very crisp, light body. Soft carbonation with pretty fluffy white head dissipating quickly, not much lacing. Creamy finish with slight astringency. Overall a pretty light bodied ale quaffable but a tad on the bitter side to be deemed sessionable.

Dark gold with a frothy white head. Lemon peel and pine are the aroma stand outs. Malt takes a backseat to resiny hop flavors. Balanced and not overly bitter for it’s medium bodied palate. Nicely done and quite enjoyable.

12oz bottle from Valhalla’s Goat. Amber brown, not much head. Resin hop aroma. Toffee grain hop flavour. Better sweet aftertaste. Better than their IPA.

kevinsenn (2180) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 27, 2017
On tap. Solid resin and fruit aroma. And a solid resin a.d fruit taste with good balance. Long bitter finish. Solid pale ale. Nothing wrong with it.

Habanero (4639) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK, DENMARK - JAN 23, 2017
Bottled. Pours clear deep golden with an average off-white head. Aroma of citrus, peachy notes, pine and caramel. Sweet flavor that ends up being dry and pleasant bitter. Medium bodied, watery to oily texture and soft carbonation. A very nice APA. 🌟🌟🌟🌟

Tap at eureka in palm desert. Dark gold with medium white head and good lacing. Sweet hop aroma. Very sticky. Hoppy but with syrupy malt and fruit like elements. Not a one dimensional beer. But not sure I prefer it.

4.1
Andrew196 (1858) - Katy, Texas, USA - DEC 29, 2016
Draft at base camp Tahoe -. Pours amber, not really pale but beautiful with an ivory head and sick lacing. Aroma is ripe berry, pine resin. Nice creamy mouth feel. Strawberry, pepper, citrus, traces of caramel. Delicious!
