COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Being the first beer off our bottling line, Pin Up Pale Ale knows just what you like. Bittered with Summit, and dry hopped with Citra and Chinook, it’s herbal hop aroma and San Diego-style bitterness pushes the Pale Ale boundaries. A simple grain bill keeps it hop forward with a malty balanced. But we don’t want to reveal too much, just enough for intrigue!

Amber Color very low carbonation rubber tire aroma bicycle tire flavor various astringent character, not bad body just the hop usage seems off. May be old hops. Will retry soon just to see if off batch.

First brewery stop on RBSG bus trip coming back from hop fields. My sample was kind of golden orange with a white head. Nose of fruit and citrus. Mango for sure. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is basically citrus and fruit. Finish shows pine bitterness. Touch of earth. To me a quality brewery should be able to brew a quality APA. This one qualifies. Good stuff.

Draft sample at the source. The beer is a clear gold with a white head. Fusels and herbal notes in the aroma. Dry and floral taste. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

Nothing really off with this beer, but also just a bit bland. Definitely a pale ale, with a nice hop to it, yet it just didn’t make me crave another.

22 oz bottle poured, shard by T. Thanks! Great back story to this beer, and a fun try for sure. Cloudy golden pour with a ton of cloud foam head. Aroma is earthy hop, bready malt, and soft spice. Flavor is much of the same. A bready grain note that lingers. Slight orange. Solid beer here.

3.5
Idiosynkrasie (7837) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - MAR 13, 2016
650ml bottle. Cloudy, orangey golden colour with average to huge, frothy, fairly lasting, minimally lacing, off-white head. Citrusy hoppy aroma, notes of orange, tangerine, lemon, some grapefruit, zesty and grassy undertones with spicy hints of hay, caramel malty background. Taste is moderately bitter hoppy, citrusy, zesty, notes of orange, tangerine, lemon, some grapefruit, some hay spiciness, mellow caramel malty background.

Some body dropped the ball and brought this pale ale to our "Hops-free" beer tasting. Of course I tasted it anyway. About what I expected.
