Poured into a Pint Glass
Appearance - Darker Hazy Orange color with a fair amount of carbonation. Head pours around half a finger with a soapy look but decent albeit filmy retention.
Smell - Citrus Hops, Yeasts, Caramel and Malts. Nice simple mixture of hops and malt sweetness.
Taste - Citrus Hops, Yeasts, Pine Resin, Malts with a slight hint of...oak? Definitely wasn't expecting that. Much like the scent, it's simple but nicely balanced. The Woodsy flavor adds some dimension to the flavor. Aftertaste is resin-y but it still comes off as dry fairly quickly
Mouthfeel - Lighter bodied with some mild carbonation, which adds a boost to the overall flavor and crispness.
Overall - A slightly different take on an American Pale Ale thanks to the oak aspect, but a good one to say the least. Definitely worth checking out if you see it.
