11.2oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow orange color. Very big foamy off-white head, leaving thick lace. Some grass and pine in the aroma. Hoppy, but flavor has a solid clean toasty malt aspect to it that balances it out. Good bitterness, but there is something soapy about this that is weird. Soft, smooth carbonation, more dry texture, medium body. Great pale ale for sure, has that unique european feel to it. But $8 retail for this bottle is outrageous, even by Evil Twin standards. thornecb (5874) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Tan head tophats and recedes leaving gloppy lacing to form a meringue center. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Pretty one-dimensional with sharp bitter earth grapefruit front to back and into the lasting pith finish. OldMrCrow (2435) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2013

Amber pour, abundant off-white head. Aroma of candied grapefruit peel and whole wheat bread and just a faint whiff of dust. Grapefruit rind forward on the flavor, malts coming on a bit too sweet and caramelly. A bit thick on the tongue. Pretty close to being something really special, but not quite there. I’d have thought a truly hipster ale would be drier -- maybe the sweetness is ironic, and I just wouldn’t get it.
Bottle. Pours a hazy golden orange with a beige head and aroma of hops and citrus. Taste is bitter, of hops, citrus, grapefruit, and tropical fruits with a bitter, dry finish chrisv10 (17270) - DENMARK - JUL 18, 2012

Bottled. Almost clear, golden, fluffy white head. Hoppy, light malty aroma - flowery, piney, grassy, caramel. Taste is sweet malty and heavy bitter and very dry finish. Tight. Too tight, perhaps. joergen (27970) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 16, 2012

330ml bottle from City Beer, San Francisco, CA
Vertical with Hipster Ale - Pours reddish orange with a foamy white head. Aroma of biscuity malts, wet cardboard, hints of fruity hops and grass. Taste is biscuity and stingy hoppy with notes of grass and hints of pine & fruits. Bitter and hoppy finish with a lot of biscuity malty notes and hints of nuts. Okay, quite basic but tasty pale ale.
