Regionally grown American pale malt is blended with rich European malts to produce a lighter bodied beer, bright in color, with a taught white head that keeps track of time as you sip. Then there are the hops – four pounds per barrel to be exact. Willamettes, Cascades, CTZ and Summits give this brew a citrus punch and spicy character that greets you in the nose and embraces your mouth with a clean, crisp bitterness.

Pour on tap at the brewery, golden yellow pour with white head, aroma brought notes of nice biscuit, bread, nice orange peel, lemon, slight grassy notes, nice and earthy as well, very balanced. Taste is a mix of balanced orange peel, grass, biscuit, with more grapefruit, some grassy spice as well finishes slightly piney, nice and bitter. Very nice.

Bought two cans of this based on the recommendation of the guy at the beer store. The first sip filled my mind with regret that I didn’t buy a six pack and thoughts of how to get more. This is an outstanding APA, with complex and perfectly balanced hops and a great texture and a nice dry finish.

On tap at GTMW 2013. Hazy amber with a medium tan crown. Aroma is hoppy and dank with citrus and some floral notes and a sweet malt backer. Taste is rather hoppy with citrus, caramel and a prickly aggressive bitter finish.

A: Golden Straw/Mild Amber Hue, Passes Most Light, White Head Ring, Some Lacing

Overall, okay on the nose and taste but the finish was really metallic tasting and poor.

Type: 12-oz. can
Glass: Lagunitas mason jar
From: My cousin Sam
Price: N/A
Purchased: Received it on Nov. 4, 2013
Consumed: Nov. 5, 2013
Misc.: Canned on May 27, 2013

Poured a caramel orange hazy color with 2-to-3 fingers of frothy white head. Lots of sporadic spiderweb lacing along the sides of the glass. Good retention as well.

Smelled a potent whiff of fresh hops up front. Initially reminded me of a Stone Ruination IPA or a Lagunitas IPA. Specifically got citrus hops (grapefruit, tangerine and some lemon), floral hops, buttery caramel malts, wet Cascade hops and resin hops. Much more like an IPA than a pale ale.

Tasted more like a pale ale than an IPA, albeit still bitter. Got buttery caramel malts, lemon grass, resin hops, earthy, grainy, honey wheat and bitter floral hops.

Medium-to-light body. Oily texture. Average-to-lively carbonation. Long, bitter finish.

Not a bad beer and I’m grateful for the opportunity to try it. I’d definitely have it again.

Great hoppy flavor Very fresh tasting Tap is the best, but a can will always do.

Can shared by Ryan (Steasy66) at Craft Islington. Pale colour, white head. Nose is lots of passion fruit, grapefruit citrous sour, slight bread/biscuit malt, lots of minerals. Taste is flinty minerally, grapefruit sour and lots of passion fruit.

Can shared at CBC Islington during the Ryan Tasting - big thanks to Ryan for this one! Great balance here. Dry citrus, restrained pale malt sweetness. Super fresh and drinkable. I could easily sink a few of these.

12oz can, Steasy tasting at CBC Islington. Thanks to Ryan. It pours a pale golden color with a small white head. Aroma is all in the way of hops with a light biscuity touch. Taste is well balanced and fruity hoppy. Citrusy and some dough. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, good one.

maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 15, 2013
Bottle cheers to Ryan. Hazy golden pour with a sticky white head. Nose is very big and grassy! Massive pine needles. Taste shows a heap of grass and pine again while a touch of citric rind comes through. A subtle hint of barnyard notes as well which is appealing. Fantastic
