Tap at Town Hall Lanes. Pint glass. Copper in color. Quarter finger head with a clear quality. Aroma is heavy on hops with pine, citrus, and slight soap. Taste is predominantly hops with a strong resin characteristic. Bitterness is the king with a little metallic aftertaste. Slight citrus rind. It’s a pretty basic pale ale effort. Not bad but not impressive. Sammy (13136) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 4, 2015
Decent pale on tap at the brewpub. Lacy on orange. Smooth mouthfeel. Good drinkability ad hopping.

Tap - average size foamy head, light gold/copper color, pretty big tropical fruit and grapefruit aroma and flavor, mild malt backbone, dry finish, probably more of a session IPA, but good for sure
