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.

GuamVice (72) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 23, 2013
From can. Light amber with frothy white head. Awesome hop aroma. Citrus and lots of hop musk. Taste starts with a light malt and frothy mouthfeel and ends with more spice and a more moderate bitter finish. It's not quite as malty as a Midwest pale ale but also more aggressive than most US pal ales. Nice to try this great beer out of Minnesota thanks to my future sister in law. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft in a chalice glass. Light copper in color, and resin and citrus fruit aroma. Palate is medium in body and is abrasive. This is not a balanced APA. More like an American IPA, and a mediocre one if considered as such. This beer is not for me.

Ratman197 (14372) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - APR 3, 2017
16 oz can poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, grapefruit, light pine and a hint of orange zest. Palate was light to medium bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit and pine with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

Clear, pale pour. Thin and rapidly disappearing head. Nose is grassy with a touch of malt. Flavor is lemon and grass first, then a touch of malt sweetness.

Great pale ale! Dangerously drinkable... always a nice go to at the he end of the day. Light hoppy flavor with citrus tones on the back end. Comparable to the ballast point grunion.

drpimento (3461) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Pretty good beer although I would say that the hoppy bitterness is more similar to an IPA. Flavors also quite dry. Aroma is hoppy and perfumy with a little bit of malt.

rumore (383) - Rimini, ITALY - NOV 10, 2016
From a can at Minneapolis Marriott City Center. Pours dark gold (or light amber), clear, with a fine white head. Aroma is predominantly grapefruit, as mentioned on the can. Body is medium, sticky and astringent, with average carbonation. Taste has marked bitterness, practically no sweetness. The bitterness sticks around in the finish as well.

UPDATED: OCT 25, 2016 12oz can to tulip. Pours hazy orange amber, sticky white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, grass, some bread and biscuit. Taste of same with slight tropical notes and dry bitter grapefruit and orange rind finish. Seems higher than 45 ibu with bitter finish. Solid for style.

rosenbergh (11374) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 30, 2016
12 oz can. BB 11/01/16. (Happy Harrys) Fargo, ND.
Clear golden color with a small to medium size foamy white head. Sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweetish malt and some resiny notes in the aroma. The flavor is resiny piney hops, moderate bitterness, darkness and sweet maltiness. A bit too dark and sweet to be really sessionable for me. Nice artwork.
