Pours a deep straw/pale gold producing 1.5 fingers of frothy, somewhat lasting, white head that leaves a beautiful wash of clumpy lacing. Aroma is citrusy, earthy, grassy & floral with a hint of pine resin backed by sweet caramel malt. Considerably more hoppy than the style demands. Not at all balanced as you would expect in a pale ale but puts you more in the mind of a light IPA. Taste is citrus, a heady mix of grapefruit, lemon & orange backed by bread & grain malt followed by a hoppy finish of pepper, light pine & a dry bitterness in a thin caramel malt sweetness. Dry, astringent, piney, citrus aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light bodied with medium carbonation, smooth, creamy yet lightly peppery & briskly dry.

Smells really nice but has a strange rubber flavor that makes no sense.

A: Tangerine orange/amber gold color under a pleasantly foamy off white head. Lace forms in patchy blotches as the head recedes into a bubbly ring and foam pile at the center.

S: Aroma brings all sorts of fruity/hoppy Spring friendly goodness. Floral...wild flowers/dandelions, melon, peach, passionfruit, and sweet grapefruit. Nice grainy and biscuity malts all over.

T: First thing you notice is the extreme dryness. Then comes grassy, fruity, citrus, and coniferous vegetation. Good chewy malts under frosty hop crystal bitterness.

M: Dry and smacky. Nice fine carbonation. Chalky....

O: Great beer but maybe too dry.

Foggy gold color with a white head that settles as a cap of soapy bubbles. Fresh, light hoppy aromas: grassy, light citrus, and peppery melons with some sweet grain here and there not unlike hot wort. Hoppy flavor as well, tasting green and fresh with grapefruit, apricot, tea, and a dark green pine note that suggests Simcoe. Super crisp and dry with a solid bitterness. Nothing incredible, but very solid and well-made. Hoppy without straying too close to IPA territory.
