Got this one in a trade, but I'll be buggered if I can remember who sent it. :( On the up side I get to enjoy it while watchng a Globe Trekker special on different types of food from around the world. (I've set foot on all seven continents, and have enjoyed a few of these things. I'm having sme great memories.)
Very active large just off white head. It's very even, wth smaler tighter bubbles. Liquid is a beautiful honey colour, just slightly hazy. As the head falls, it leaves a medium wet lace.
The aroma is exceptional, full of floral hops, fresh orange, almonds, and honey. Beautiful.
The flavour is actually not quite as good as the aroma. Not bad, mind you- just kind of thin by comparison. Slightly woody and spicy of front, then the hops creep in from there. The finish is mildly spicy and malty. The hops get more pronounced as it warms up.
(Mmmmm...camel burgers in Morocco, dim sum in Hong Kong....Fufu in Ghana...travel is good.)
Mouthfeel is not bad...active on the carbonation, and the liquid is just slighty oily.
Quite drinkable. Goes down easy, and has a nice hop character. Well done!

Freshness: Best by 03-26-2014
Packaging: 22 oz. brown bottle, pry-cap
Glassware: Nonic pint
Purchased: Single from World Market
A: Pours at first a semi-clear copper color, but then the 2nd pour yields more of a haziness as noted in the name. Head is tall and creamy with excellent retention and attractive rings of lace. A fine looking beer
S: Aromas start with citrus-smelling hops that reminder me of orange zest and lemongrass. There's also some sweetness in the aroma from caramel malt.
T/M: The first taste features the crisp, high carbonation feel, followed by flavor notes of fresh hoppy bitterness from lemon and grapefruit citrus. A bready malt backbone also lends to the taste for balance. Medium in body, the finish is bitter from the hops, but not overly so.
O: I found this to be a good tasting, moderately-hoppy pale ale that has some interesting balance to keep it from being one-dimensional.
