A- Golden hazy amber with a 2 finger sudsy bubbly head. Head sticks around a minute and leaves behind some patchy lacing as the drink goes down.
S- Major hop forward nose. More of a mineral hop. But then gives way to some nice toffee and citrus notes.
T- Again, major hop forward. I think its a key signature with Marshall. Piney hops and mineral hops. Dry bread. Toffee. But leads into a great fruity balance of maybe peaches, apricots, and grapefruits. Well balanced.
M- Medium-light body with medium carbonation. Crisp, a tad dry, and refreshing.
O- My go-to beer for the summer. Excellent. Not a hop bomb, just hop forward. Great citrusy notes, crisp, and refreshing. Marshall continues to put out some excellent brews. Cheers!

Pours a hazy orange color with 2 fingers of head. The aroma may be the best part of this beer and possibly the best aroma Ive ever got from a beer. One of the most pungent and booming aromas, this literally smells like smelling hop pellets in your hand. Citrus and pine bombard the nose at first with a little bit of bready malt. The taste is very good with the citra hop clearly shining through with the distinctive passionfruit followed by some citrus and light pine notes. The bready malt helps balance this hoppy pale ale by removing bitternness and adding a smooth, creamy finish. Mouthfeel is a little sticky and sweet from the malt which detracts for me. Overall, this is a very tasty brew and woud make for a great beginners beer to hoppy ales and even satisfy even the most seasoned hop head.
Edit: This is also a unassuming beer considering the label design, which makes for the don't judge a book by its cover example. It may look average on the outside, but this is much more than average.
