On tap at the brewery. Pours a lightly hazed golden amber with a thin white head. Soft citrus, a hint of froot loops. Medium bodied, picks up a touch of sweaty mango armpit stuff, otherwise pretty nice. Gentle bitterness with a touch of grapefruit into the finish.

Bottle. Clear honey gold with a fine white head. Hoppy nose is pine lumber, herbs, gummi bears / tropical gum; Malt is lightly toasty and toffee-like; game-y butterscotch notes suggest diacetyl. Medium body, sweet, syrupy and glycerin-like on the tongue; moderately bitter, medium-low acid, buttery and off.

onceblind (8471) - Denver, Colorado, USA - NOV 8, 2014
Beautiful clear golden with a foamy white head. Prety lovely nose of sweet of pale ale malty biscuit and a sharp grassy fresh cascade hop. Smooth and mellow flavor thats balanced and hoppy and sweet malty. Theres a nice grassy and citrus pop on the start followed by a golden toast and pale ale malt body. Nice toffee and citrus sweetness with a blonde ale body. And a touch of peppery hops. Nicely nuanced pale.

Sampler pack from a dude from the brewery, supposedly.. . Biscuit, hay, mild centennial, and dry grass .. Easy mouth, dry finish for a pale .. Good pale, but I liked the 77 so much better. .. . Betty white once ate a pot brownie and banged a tree stump.

drowland (7917) - Georgia, USA - JUL 30, 2013
3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma on this for just a pale ale. Floral, piney, and plenty of citrus on top of a solid malt balance. Slightly more lackluster flavor, less hop presence, more malts coming through. Tasty.

22. Pours a clear medium amber with golden brown highlights. Loose filmy tannish head knocking around, leaving bits of patchy lace. Nice fruity nose, caramel showing through oranges and pineapples. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid-palate. Pleasant. Tangy pineapple finish. Nice fresh citric fruity APA. Good stuff.

Bottle -thanks Artem! Pours clear amber with a large creamy off white head that dissipates with great lacing. Aroma is pine, spruce, citrus, mango. Flavors the same, very light sweet, light bitter. Bitter in the finish, a touch metallic. Light body, bit watery.
