COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Nsanders (1066) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - FEB 10, 2014
Tap at Pizza Luce. Golden/apricot color with thick white lacing. Apricot, citrus and resinous hops, and caramel maltiness. Taste is initially quite sweet but finishes with a lingering resinous bitterness. Medium body with a soapy feel. Good pale ale.

falco242 (386) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 9, 2014
Light but floral nose, and the beer is definitely a bitter pale. Slightly hazy amber color and not much citrus present at all. Resin up the wazoo!

burg326 (5402) - Florida, USA - FEB 7, 2014
Poured a clear amber color with aromas of light citrus, some fruit, a touch of pine and some some bitterness. Flavors followed suit a decent pale ale that has nothing out of the ordinary just good.

Very strong floral and pine hops, very bitter throughout and a little dank. Not enough malts for balance.

DrewFace (967) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 24, 2014
Can share thanks to Homer321. Clear light golden. Danky floral hop aroma. More floral, danky, piney hope character and light malt backbone. Decent pale.

obguthr (5921) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JAN 23, 2014
Intense pine and caramel nose, subtle rosehip note. Cloudy amber, thick head, good lacing. Lemon and pine flavor, whole orange at midpalate, finishes with grapefruit peel and lemongrass. Light body, slightly tangy, considerably bitter. Superb balance and intensity, full of nuance. I could totally rate this higher, but I feel like Im getting carried away. I wish I could get this more often.

icehawk (834) - Mount Pleasant, South Carolina, USA - JAN 20, 2014
Can, thanks Chase! Canned 11.25.13. Nice aroma of grapefruit and hint of pine. Medium body with fresh burst of pine up front, resiny coating mouthfeel. Finish with a nice twinge of bitterness that strengthens into the aftertaste. Very nice, solid APA.
