VinegarStroke (445) - Napa, California, USA - OCT 1, 2017
Bottle (16oz) from Tavour: Light haze, very pale, light head and lace. Aromas are dominated by pale malt. very fresh with surprising richness. Yeasty notes. Dominated by pale malt, maybe wheat and yeast. Hops are delicately used. very interesting and different. Rather a pleasant and exciting change from the classic IPA's.

bytemesis (9219) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - AUG 18, 2017
Bottle. Pours clear pale golden, medium creamy white head, dissipates slowly, nice lacing. Aroma is grass, grain, pine, hint of oranges. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium bitter. Medium body. Not great - perhaps past its prime, but I did not sit on it.

Pale golden pour, clear with decent head and retention. Medium bodied, dry, citrus, mild grapefruit, wildflowers, melon. Super crushable.

OldMrCrow (2446) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 20, 2016
Tap at the Last Drop.

Bought a growler of E9 Pales in Comparison instead of this one, probably a mistake. Nice spicy new-school hops come powerfully foward, a little bit of grapefruit juice, malts way backgrounded. Delicious.

4.2
Marheb (6193) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 2, 2016
(En fût à la source): Une base juteuse orange/banane, des fleurs, des malts sucrés pales, jamais encombrant et une délicate amertume.

3.2
chinchill (5314) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 7, 2016
On tap at the brewpub. 6.2% Light golden body topped by a durable white head that leaves a full coat of lacing on the glass. Medium-light body with medium+ carbonation. Moderately bitter, low for style, with some light malt base showing. Overly earthy and piney mix of hops for my taste, despite some citrus.

3.9
pintbypint (3831) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUN 18, 2016
500ml brown bottle. Bottling date was 04 26 16. Pours out clear and golden with a lovely clingy sticky white cap that leaves behind loads of messy lacing. The nose has soft fruits and citrus. Light malts and big citrus in the mouth. Grapefruit and grainy malt aftertaste. Good balanced bittering. Well made, clean malts and satisfying hops.

3.8
luttonm (6757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2016
The Yard, Seattle. Pale gold-yellow, white cream. Rich pale hop. Pine, clean. Delicious hop. Pale malt body. Excellent hoppy blonde-based IPA. Very nice.
