Served from a tallboy can into a pint glass. Canned on 3/19/14

A- Poured a hazy light orange color with huge fluffy bright white head that left webbed lace.

S- Big orange citrus and lemon hoppy notes (definitely smells like Amarillo), sweet bready notes, and some other light fruity notes. It is not a huge aroma but it is so well-balanced and the hop expression is very bright and welcoming.

T- Lots of grainy, bready, and oatmeal notes, very high herbal and earthy bitterness, and some light fruity notes.

M- Prickly carbonation, medium body, very dry, and pretty refreshing.

O- The hop aroma and the hop flavor in this beer were very different with a really bright citrusy nose and a more herbal and bitter hop flavor. The bitterness is pretty harsh and I think overshadows what could be a solid pale ale underneath.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Hazy, pale orange, small head that dissipates quickly. Many chunks of sediment remain after a strong pour including dregs.

Nose: Lots of butter or butterscotch up front (diacetyl?), slight citrus spiciness.

Taste: Lots of citrus hops up front with strong carbonation enhancing it. Grapefruit and grassy notes arise mid way and remain to finish.

Mouthfeel: Strong carbonation, Light body yet smooth (oats?)

Overall: A very hoppy, unique pale ale that flirts with crosses into IPA territory. Diacetyl works to balance hop sharpness and low malt flavor.

From 16 oz can to pint glass

A: The brew forms a frothy, 1-inch head on a gentle pour that leaves a fair amount of patchy lacing along the glass. The color is a light golden-tan, slightly opaque.

S: Hop forward nose, piny, with distinct notes of earthy tea. Light citrus notes bounce off a biscuity backdrop. The bouquet is floral and dry.

T: Bitter hops jump to the front, vinous and earthy. The tea-like tones in the nose are only accentuated on the palate. Citrus notes also noted. A touch of honeyed biscuits try to balance, but this is ultimately bitter and dry.

M: Chewy and stodgy for the ABV, the oatmeal works well for texture. Nicely carbonated.

Could use a little more malt-balance, but if you're looking for a hoppy, dry pale you could do a lot worse.
