Poured a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. A very gentle pour left a minimal fizzy head that left a small ring behind. A beautiful hazy, cloudy orange color. Darker than other pale ales I've had. The aroma is mildly hoppy and sweet with some citrus in there as well. Not an overpowering aroma but nicely balanced. The taste is well balanced and follows the nose: Mildly hoppy and citrusy. I taste orange and pine, but it's a gentle taste. A little bitterness comes through after swallowing. Mouthfeel is somewhat dry and light/medium bodied. This could be my favorite session beer. Very drinkable and I could drink them all day. So, so good.

A: Pours a clear golden with a dense white head. Very lice lacing and retention.
S: This beer smells of balance. Perfect balance of floral citrus hops, light caramel and very light grainy sweet malt. A wee bit of pilsner like aroma is present. Neither the hops nor malt take over the aroma.
T: Starts with a beautiful floral Citrusy, grapefruit and mild pine flavor followed by a lemony citrus in the mid palate. Bitterness is present but subdued and balanced to the sweet malt flavor. The light lemon character and hop flavor persists in a semi dry finish. Quite a complex hop flavor going on here.
M:Medium body with a velvety texture. moderate carbonation. Smooth.
O: This is one of the best overall pale ales I've ever had. Balance is the word here. It's a complex variety of flavors that each have their own identity and distinct flavors are identifiable through the finish. A very smooth and easy drinking beer.

love this stuff - this is my "go to" - and honestly, it tastes even better from the can. bold, beautiful color, maintains its head - can conditioned - I'm sold. and when the supermarket runs the price special for 12, I'm investing in the future. a truly character laden pale (love the pine and evergreen influence) that has legs - keep up the great work, SN !
