Ecliptic Brewing Quasar Pale – American Pale Ale at 6% ABV | 65 IBU (C$3.01 at Collective, 355 ml, packaged on 11-Sep-2019, acquired 31-Oct-2019, reviewed 11-Nov-2019)

Appearance: slightly hazy pale gold with two fat fingers of rocky white head, excellent retention and heavy soapy lacing. (4/5) Aroma: tropical fruit, resiny pine, grainy caramel, citrus. (7/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (7/10) Palate: medium body, moderate carbonation, off-dry lingering bitter finish. (3/5)

I find Simcoe and Mosaic to be a nice combination, and it’s one that’s implemented pretty well here, with tropical fruit and dank pine ahead of mild citrus. It’s definitely hop dominant, albeit with a solid cereal grain malt backbone. Pleasantly balanced, and pretty easy to drink despite the slightly higher bitterness. (14/20)
