The pours a creamy and frothy head that dissipates quickly but still leaves some foam around the edges and clings to the glass. The beer is a clear golden amber. The beer has stronger malt smell than expected but the hop smell is not too diminished. The hops have a wet grassy smell to them and notes of pine resin as well. The taste is similar to the smell. The hops are much more grassy than the smell but still have strong notes of pine. The malt is not as strong as the smell and only slightly offset the hops with a sweet malt taste. The mouthfeel is medium bodied but on the heavy side with biting carbonation. The feel is smooth bordering on velvety. Overall, a very good pale ale and much better done than Stone's Enjoy By IPA. I'll definitely pick this one up next year.
