COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Three hop varieties have added tremendous zest to this Pale Ale. After a soft and full floral nose, those juicy hops saturate the middle of this amber ale with more flowery fullness. The malt body punctuates the lingering hop richness of this one-of-a-kind ale.

Tap at Barcade. Not quite as pale as I would like. Good, though. Perhaps I wasn’t expecting such hop/malt balance and it threw me off. I’ll need to try this brew again.

Bottle from Capitol Beer. Pours clear copper with a creamy beige head. Hoppy aroma - citrus and stone fruit? Med body at least. Flavor is hoppy - citrus/light stone fruit/tea? It’s towards dry and decently bitter. The (to me) complex hop flavor is tasty and intriguing. Good stuff.

Tmoney99 (14460) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy complex hop aroma. Moderate to heavy bitter flavor with a moderate to heavy bitter finish of medium to long duration. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. This is a solid beer.

Drake (13728) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 28, 2014
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run, opened 11/13/14. Pours a clear copper with a thin fizzy tan head. Decent head retention. Aroma of green hops, caramel malt and a bit of raw malt. The taste is green, vegetal hops, caramel malt, a bit of raw malt. Medium bodied, strong lingering bitterness, alpha acid bite, moderate carbonation. A bare bones beer but quite solid.

3.2
crossovert (12911) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 15, 2015
355ml bottle. Amber pour, ecru head that sticks, nice lacing. Lemon pepper aroma, herbs and grass, bit of citrus zest, baked bread. Flavor is bitter, herbs, some acidity. Not terrible.

3.7
hopdog (12510) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2006
KSBF. I believe they were pouring this out of 750ml bottles. Poured a medium to deeper golden / amber color with a smaller sized white head. Aromas of fresh hops - pine & grass with some caramel. Tastes of lighter hops (didn’t have that fresh, green hoppiness) - grass and pine with caramel. Lighter bitter finish.

3.5
j12601 (11706) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 31, 2009
On tap at Barcade. Pours a clear orange with just a hint of haze and a thin beige head. Spice, light esters, little bit of DMS. Medium, but a bit thin, light maltiness. Finishes with a light bitterness.

3.5
shrubber85 (11397) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2016
Bottle. Orange malt and metallic orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with small light tan head. Sweet milky orange malt and moderately bitter earthy orange peel flavor. Nice body. Tasty.

4.1
DocLock (10683) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2006
Orangy coppery pour with medium head. Malty aroma with a hoppy floral and fruity smell. This one reminds me a lot of the Manayunk wet hopped brew, with the caramel malty flavor backed up by an earthy, sort of fruity yet peaty hop, as such. Complex and well balanced, I had several pints of this.
