Poured a gorgeous cloudy amber body with a half finger of off-white head, golden highlights when held to light and a nice trickle of bubbles. A very good looking pale ale. Scents of pine resin, wet, earthy herbal hops, floral, jasmine-like hops, a hint of tangerine, a bit of pale malt and a touch of caramel in the background. A nice, hop forward aroma that leans less towards citrus and more to resiny, floral and earthy aromas with a nice balancing malt. Flavor begins with notes of pine resin and earthy herbal hops with moderate bitterness and a low level of malt sweetness. This moves into a more bitter middle with notes of pine resin, earthy herbal hops, floral hops, hints of grapefruit peel and a touch of pale malt sweetness faintly in the background. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel, light herbal hop character and a touch of biscuit-like malt. Aftertaste is dry with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and biscuit-like malt. A good hop forward flavor profile that uses its light malt presence to keep the flavor from becoming too bitter. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with low carbonation and a smooth feel. Very nice and quite easy to drink. Overall this is a nice pale ale. It's hoppy, yet not overly so, aromatic, flavor and smooth. It's a nice, simple drinking experience and quite good.
