P:  A full finger crown of airy bone white head that sets atop of a slightly distorted light golden orange body. 

S:  Clean fresh fruity hop aroma, barley, lemon, lime, mango, floral perfume,  and subtle pepper. 

T/M:  Pale malt base with spices,  creamy citrus hops, apples and a dash of fresh pine. Finish is dry and leaves a sensation like you just brushed your teeth. 

O:  An excellent display of aroma and bold yet delicate hops. Great drinkability and flavors that leave you wanting more. One of my favorite pale ales.
