Just brew a friggin good pale ale and leave all this gimmicky stuff alone. Yet another ho hum to weak example of a pale ale. Pour was on draft, orange type color, weak head and lacing. Aroma was som citrus, phenolic notes. Flavor underwhelmed, floral, citrus, spices, bread/grains. Herbal and musty. Snore. mar (5457) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 11, 2013

Aroma: The nose has floral hops, grapefruit, citrus rind, and some grainy notes
Appearance: This one has a hazy yellow pour, with a white head, and lots of sticky lace
Flavor: The taste is light sweet first and then it gets slightly more bitter later on
Palate: The body is medium, it is a hint sticky, with a dry, almost abrupt finish to it
This one is actually pretty solid. It isn’t an absolute standout of an IPA, nor it is a hop bomb, but I was happy to try it. I’ll have to be on the lookout for more of beers from this series.
On tap at Craft and Growler. Orange-gold color with a white head. Smells like a basic IPA with some orange and pine notes, as well as a little bit of pepper. This is a bit of a weird one in the flavor department. I get some orange citrus as well as some ginger and a bit of pepper. There is also some pine and a little bit of ash. All of this doesn’t really go too well together in my opinion. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. obguthr (6831) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Grapefruit peel nose. Cloudy orange, medium yellow head. Lemon zest ashy hints. Sudsy mouthfeel. boxofrane (2559) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Draft at 2 stones pub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head and solid lacing. The aroma Is floral, light citrus. The taste is lightly bitter and very soft. Good hoppy flavor. Very nice. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 14, 2013
In short: A smooth floral and slightly spicy blond IPA.
How: Tap at Three Penny Taproom, Montpelier VT.
The look: Cloudy pale blond body topped by a small persistent white head.
In long: Nose is smoothly hoppy with soft floral notes, a bit dank, some watermelons. Taste offers a discreet pale malt body with almost no sweetness flavors. I think this shy malt backbone is appropriate for the smooth character of the hop profile. Far from intense, hopping is mostly floral, a bit grassy and with light spicy notes. Round bitterness of low-medium intensity. This is a relatively smooth IPA, tasty but never aggressive, a highly sessionnable beer but not one for the hopheads and bitterness lover. And I think it is pretty racist that pub owners force me to pay for my beer just because I’m not from the middle-eastern and with a bomb strapped to my body, racist I tell you.
