Draft at Town Hall during RBSG. From notes. Citrus and tropical fruits all up in it. I could drink this every day. Bacterial (2986) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - SEP 20, 2013
Draft at Town Hall Brewery. Slightly hazy golden pour with a big white head. Citrus nose. Big hoppy flavors in the taste, some odd earthy tastes give way to nice citrus hops and a strong bitter finish. Stine (1779) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 25, 2013
Caramelized onion and garlic are heavy in the aroma. Seriously heavy. Mild mango and floral suggestions are present in the pale-malt focused background.

Similarly pungent, earthy, flavor, with a decidedly pepperish bitterness. Again, lingering hints of flowers, honey and stone fruits exist in the margins. It tastes of an old composty vegetable garden in a way that’s not bad or good really, with a sticky and acrid-ish finish.
Medium palate. That finish is too long for this flavor; I’m not sure if that demonstrates a brewing flaw or the unsuitability of the pacific jade hop for this format.
Tap at brewery. Pours is a hazy gold with white head. Lots of citrus hops, creamy/malty mouthfeel.

Tap at the brewery. Slightly hazy light gold pour with a smaller white head. Nice citrusy hops on the nose. Fuller mouthfeel with a nice malt backing. Quite good! portableparty (2347) - Blaine, Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On tap at Town Hall. I was told by the bartender that this is a single hop pale ale, but whatever. Poured a hazy gold orange with a tight foamy white head that left a thin film and collar. Aroma was earthy and floral hops with a nice malt mix. Taste has nice bitter hops and spice with the hops being earthy and floral with a faint fruitiness that shows though. Palate is thin and fizzy with a chalky dry finish. Very enjoyable! sprybry (37) - Minnesota, USA - AUG 14, 2013

On tap at the Hall as one of their seasonals. Golden color. Low head for my pour. Subdued aromas. Good balance on the malt vs. hops. Taste has a bit of bitter funk. I like this NZ hop variety. I predict the next rating will be from RBSG 2013...
