A- a golden color with a one inch head and some sticky lacing on the glass.

S- resiny cascade, grapefruit and pine, a touch of fruity malt.

T- grapefruit and orange rind, splash of lemon, and then mostly piney hops. The malt is there enough to give a bready background to this clearly hop-forward pale.

O- a really solid beer, there is a reason it is held in such a high regard. It is an incredible session beer, one of the best hop-forward session beers around for the price.
