In a time when pale ale’s are saturating the craft market, it’s easy to not be impressed by a well crafted pale ale. However, don’t sleep on this one. The balance of citrus and hops is simple, but it’s also very refreshing and enjoyable. This isn’t about hop-assault or high alcohol, it’s about being robust, drinkable and refreshing. Great beer.
cracking little beer; a dark yet explosive IPA which hits all the right buttons. doesn’t smell very good so gives off a crappy first impression but makes up for it in spades with the taste. TimE (5954) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 19, 2017
Big caramel malt backbone support bright citrusy hops. Very well balanced and great example of an American pale ale. VinegarStroke (429) - Napa, California, USA - AUG 19, 2017
Can: fresh hoppy American pale ale. It’s pretty classic. Clean tropical Homs and good malty note. Palate is rich and balanced. Solid pale ale. AtronSeige (1595) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 13, 2017
Aroma: Medium toffee, grapefruit, pine.
Appearance: Clear, copper body. Large, small to medium bubbles Good retention. Lacing.
Flavour: Medium toffee, grapefruit, pith, pine, resin. Medium-high bitterness. Dry finish with lingering grapefruit pith.
Mouthfeel: Medium body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A perfect balance. The moment it feel like a component is standing out too far, a complimentary component stands in to take the spotlight for the next few seconds, until another steps in.
355 ml can, poured.

UPDATED: AUG 6, 2017 Earthy bread with light mouth feel. Pours copper with tan head. Very good pale and the abv is excellent for the style phranq (249) - - AUG 5, 2017
Earthy in the nose from a copper pour. Light mouth feel. The late late bitterness leaves an off taste otherwise very serviceable. Paddycairns (52) - - AUG 4, 2017
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2017 Smells bready malt. Bitter but sweet almost floral and oranges. Really good pale ale hauxe (836) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - JUL 31, 2017
Pours gold with a frothy white head. Aroma of maracuja, citrus. Taste is mildly bitter with noticeable citrus. Body stays light, smooth, but is not watery. Okay paulcliff (44) - - JUL 31, 2017
Powerful aroma of hops, and pours a golden brown colour, clear, with little head. Malty flavoring adds character but makes way for a clean finish that renders this beer a flavorful but refreshing option. Not bad.
