Had this on 2012-02-18 in Marietta, PA at McCleary's

A - Very clear, Amber-orange with a 1-finger head and decent lacing.

S - Mild orange flesh, floral hops and pine. Pleasant but not extraordinary.

T - Medium roasted malt with light caramel sweetness. Bold and bright grapefruit juice, orange rind, pine. Bitterness is nicely aggressive and lasts long into the aftertaste.

M - Smooth and crisp with light-medium body and medium-high carbonation.

O - I had this after a 13-mile hike on a warm, winter day and I'm here to tell you, this really hit the spot. It's not the best "Extra Pale Ale"/IPA but it satisfies the needs of this hop-head.
