24oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Deep amber color with a white, fluffy head. Pour got a little out of control and head hung on for quite some time. Excellent retention and lacing.
S: Nice citrsy hops. Distinct grapefruit smell with a touch of pine.
T: Smooth and balanced, but with big spicy hop flavor. This brew is all about the hops and does a wonderful job showcasing them without letting them overpower.
M: Just a touch oily, which is perfect for a medium bodied pale ale.
D: Bottle says 6.7% ABV. Not a session beer, but all 24oz. went down like it was. I'll definitely pick up another before they are gone for the season.
Overall: An excellent Pale Ale. A good choice to start an evening or to enjoy with dinner. A seasonal upgrade over SNPA that is worth the extra cost.
