Pours golden and clear. Some head and carbonation. Taste and aroma are both express pine and citrus. With a very strong pine in the taste and a cooling menthe flavor in the finish. There is a healthy dose of toasty malt up front as well. This is a nice pale ale but the pine is a little overpowering for me and comes off a little unbalanced. Should make for some interesting food pairing.

Not sure what was going on here. Draught from brou lane. Poured an attractive gold. Not much aroma. Mild hops I guess. Strangely astringent taste. . Neh.

Draft at Brouwerij Lane, Fresh Pine and citrus hop aroma. Forward pine hops with some citrus on the palate, clean and crisp , nice dry finish, a well executed pale ale, easy drinking.

talon1117 (1152) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
The pour is a clear, orangey, golden color with a fairly small, white, pillowy head which is mostly diminishing. The nose is very floral, some resins, orangey citrus, and some biscuits. The flavor is decidedly more passive with more biscuity notes, the citrus becoming almost limey, and slight resins. The palate is lively, light to medium, lightly crisp, and drying slightly. The finish carries a moderate bitterness, a limey citrus, and biscuits still. A fairly easy drinking, hop forward, session pale. The hop notes were pleasant but simple and the biscuit notes were a bit too overwhelming. Not bad for a <5% pale but fairly pedestrian.

UPDATED: NOV 12, 2013 Bottle 3 months old. Clear gold color with soft lasting head and lace . Vibrant floral and citrus greats the nose with a surprising light anise, menthe, or pine aroma. Flavor is cool citrus element, clean grain and light tropical hops. Feel fresh, lively, and full. Really nice. Could drink these forever. Just what I want a place to be.

Hops are the star of the show here. A very tasty pale ale. Crisp, clean, floral and citrus (tangerine and orange) Light, but assertive. One of my favorite Pale Ales

Draught pours a cloudy orange brown with white head. Floral, hay and citrus aromas are present. Taste is a bit underwhelming, with no real flavor outstanding. An ok beer, but not the best.

Anova167 (361) - Manhattan Beach, California, USA - FEB 28, 2012
Solid pale ale. Nice hoppy aroma. Clear gold/brass in the glass with good lacing. Taste is pretty mild and maltier than the aroma indicates. Not bad but not exceptional.
