MartinT (10036) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2009
My Bottom Line:
This American Pale Ale’s grapefruity hops and lightly toasted pale malts benefit from a decent body and pleasant bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the hazy golden, lacing well.
-The smooth effervescence increases drinkability.
-The hop bitterness was a tad leafy, and a bit resinous.
-The flavor profile was a bit mineral at times; perhaps the line was getting dirty?

On tap at the brewpub.

Draft. Too malty for the hops. Reddish/amber color, but very little bitterness.
