Poured into a standard pint glass.

Appearance is a light golden tan with orange.

Great pine aroma

Taste follows aroma in flavor however it is not well balanced. Hops taste offset by the toasty malt. Not unpleasant, however not much substance.

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium orange hue with a light haze and a strong effervescence. Head is a thick finger of pillowy ivory foam which is leaving a nice lace on the glass as it slowly dissipates. Quite good.

Smell: very piney, resiny and slightly citrusy hops atop a sweet malt base. Quite refreshing; I like it.

Taste: fresh and floral hops with more of that resiny, piney quality. The malt character is a bit on the sweet side for my taste, but basically it is good.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a moderate carbonation and a rockily refreshing texture. It works in this context.

Overall: a decent pale ale, if a bit sweet for me.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium golden amber with a fizzy two finger white head; so active I thought it was going to fizz out immediately, but actually had great retention and lots of thick lacing. Nice aroma of pineapple and other tropical fruit, orange, citrus hops and sweet bready malt, nice. Flavor follows, dominated by a great variety of citrus, piney and dank hops, mild bready malt, grapefruit and tropical fruit. Medium bodied with mild creaminess. Quite nicely hopped for a pale ale; the hops flavor drops off just at the finish revealing a slight buttery component, but leaves a long lasting citrus hop bitterness. Nicely done and flavorful, a richly hop flavored (but not overly bitter) pale ale that is worth a revisit.
