Pours amber in color with a creamy white head. Floral hop and citrus aroma hits the nose right away along with a light scent of caramel malt. Medium-bodied mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. The hop flavor shoots immediately to the forefront and remains the dominant characteristic throughout. Malt background is subtle. A light fruitiness can be detected just before the bitter hoppy middle. The finish seems to thin out both in hop flavor and texture. An easy drinking American Pale ale, just not overly complex.

A: Pours copper or brass and very clear. Medium to full head. Fantastic retention with a fair amount of lacing throughout.
S: Herbal hops are dominated by caramel malts and vanilla spiced undertones. Faintest hint of apple can be found.
T: Interesting! Incredibly it is sweet at the beginning. Caramel is the most dominant flavor. There is some toast in the middle followed by a supurbly clean finish. Hops present but very mellow.
M: Medium to light bodied. Carbonation is less than expected and takes away from my enjoyment some. I think it would improve the lighter notes in the taste more if the carbonation was higher... but that is a personal thing.
O: I always find myself trying to pair light yet flavorful beers with foods. This beer should be your "type O" : IT GOES WITH ANYTHING. Fact: You could drink this at the tailgate or with a fantastic filet... and no one would be upset. A true jack of all trades. Completely drinkable. A must try for anyone who enjoys North Coast.... but not their best outing.
