pgd. 2/19/14. consumed 6/6/14.

A: Soft glowing sunset orange coloring with a good clarity revealing a quick paced effervesce. Pie crust tinted head is bready in texture, slightly withstanding of average retention. Leaves with a washy lacing.

A: Aroma of fresh wet lemons with a balance of lightly dry straw. Still fairly good natured and strong despite the 4 months layover. Some pine-orange mixture, fresh and wet.

T: The flavor was fresh and wet pine-orange hopping. Some wet citrus with some grassy undertones. Lightly dry hopping, dry grains with background nuances of tropical fruitiness. Flowery edge of grapefruit with a crisp malting.

M: Crisp mouthful, wet hopping quenches the tongue with a refreshing bite.

O: Overall nice and wet flavorful hops, crisp pale malt with a low amount of speciality grains keeping the pale in pale ale. Refreshing easy drinking multiple downer with a strong movement of hops that border on ipa standards.

Pours into a nonic a clear medium golden with a thinner white head atop.Some nice floral hop notes in the nose with a bit of toasted grain and biscuit malt,light but pleasant.Citrusy hops with a bit of tangerine at the onset of the palate with sweet biscuit malts a smack of toasted grain in the finish.I don't think this beer is bad at all it's light and somewhat refreshing on a sweaty ass humid day like today.
