3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A pretty solid, easy drinking pale ale with nice crisp hop bite. Whoever shared this growler at RBWG, I appreciate it very much!
12oz bottle. Pours a murky dull amber with a negligible white head. Aroma is syrupy sweet citrus, resin, and dough. Taste is caramel malt and sweet citrusy fruit with a little dough and a lot of pine. Long, bitter piney/earthy finish. Light body. Prickly carbonation. Slick mouthfeel; sort of creamy. shrubber85 (11508) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 22, 2016
Bottle. Orange, caramel malt, and weedy hay aroma. Amber with large light tan head. Moderately sweet orange/mango, caramel malt, and moderately bitter hay/quinine flavor. Okay body and balance. Decent. Patrickctenchi (6668) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 12, 2016
Clear, copper-amber with a thick beige head.
Earthy caramel malt aroma.
Taste is toasty caramel malt, slightly nutty.....
Starts out a bit watery, but after a bit of warming it starts coming around....Strongly malty....mild earthy bitterness.
More along the lines of a hoppy amber...pretty good. bulldogops (2726) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 16, 2016
Rating #1866 - 2015.08.24 - Bottle from CBI.- Goldenpour with a creamy white head that bubbles away quickly. hops are very fragrant with mild citrus in the aroma. Mouthfeel is creamy, medium carbonation, and bitter hops on the finish - but not overpowering, very balanced. Delicious. pintbypint (3733) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - APR 1, 2016
12oz brown bottle. Poured out a hazy amber colour, thin and low sitting white cap with no lacing in the glass. Aroma has some fruity and sweet notes with citrus. Taste has caramel malt with citrus and pine notes. Mild bitterness. Light bodied. An easy drinking pale ale, a bit on the malty side.

Pleasantly surprised with the crispness of this pale ale. Nice malts along with assertive enough hop profile. Totally crushable. jb (3311) - Rochester, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2015
After a really good stone apa this was not as good but it is decent. Malt heavy and clean but with that off mineral taste that seems to come with German hops. drsandman (1577) - New York, USA - AUG 2, 2015
Pours a deep orange Amber, thin slightly off white head. Aroma is bread, biscuit, earthy malt, faint pine. Flavor is bitter earthy malt, pine, minerals, stale bread, malt bomb. Fairly hoppy, but really aggressive malt profile. patricks110 (2521) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 31, 2015
A nice easy going Pale Ale. Not overly hopped up but has a decent malt base and a good balance. light toasted malts, caramel, bit of citrus hop and a light pine note. Sweet malts up front with a crisp, clean and moderately bitter finish. Nicely done. reebtogi (6330) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2015
355ml bottle pours a pale amber color with a finger and a half of off-white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and pine with some tropical fruits and light caramel. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and caramel malty sweetness. Light bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is a well crafted brew with a nice balance of flavors and is recommended.
