12oz bottle poured into a pint glass
This beer pours a hazy brown tinged copper with a very small white head which doesn't do much of anything in the glass. The smell is surprisingly hoppy, this is just a pale ale, not an IPA right? To be fair the hop aroma is nicely balanced by malt. The taste is very nice. Again the flavor is led by citrus hops but quickly gives way to nice rounded maltyness. There is also a strong salty presence, maybe a bit off but I kind of like it. The mouthfeel is nice the right level of carbonation and very dry finish invite another sip. Drinkability too is good definitely different from your typical west coast pale ale but the change is welcomed.
