12 oz. can, $9 per 6 @ Binny’s. Yet another local brewpub on store shelves. This one canned yet. This one pours dark orange, and pretty cloudy. Bubbly pale ale head. Smell has some nice hop florals to it, citrus and light pine on the back end. Taste is more malty, even a bit sticky. Hops are settled in for balance, unlike most small brewers’ pale ale. That would make this beer suffer in comparison to other hop bombs, but its a nice beer either way. Malts a little thick to qualify as a lawnmower beer, which is where my mind is this extended weekend. But it would be a good dinner beer.

Draft at source. Nose is floral and cream of wheat grainy smelling. This is not bursting with hop aroma as advertised. The Belgian pale ale with citra has way more hops. Taste is slightly less underwhelming but it isn’t bursting either. Slightly sweet. Meh.

This one is citruscy and soapy flavored. Easy to drunk and nice and hoppy. Pours light yellow with a thick white head. Had at Wild onion.

Aroma pine, some citrus and a note of caramel..Orange amber color with a white head. Sweet malt up front...kind of off. Piney bitterness next. Finish is a bit unbalanced.with a weird after taste. Sub par.

12 ounce can from Binny’s. Malty and fruity esters without much of a hop bite to it. Ok but glad I only bought one.

Tap at the brewpub. Light orange pour with a spotty white head. Mild grapefruit aroma. Palate is thin and a bit watery. Lower flavor.

Hazy amber color with white head. Can really smell the cascade hops. Perhaps a little bitter for the style.

12 oz can. Pours a very hazy, almost opaque deep orange. Pretty color. Large sustained off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with citrus. Some earthy smell. Tastes of citrus and herbs. Bitter grapefruit finish that lingers. Decent.

Can thanks to nielsenratings. Pours a murky reddish grapefruit color with a medium white head. Aroma is hoppy, a bit soapy, some citrus. Flavor is grapefruit juice, soap, lingering bitter finish.
