Pours a cloudy orange color with a 2 inch head that dissipates slowly leaving nice lacing down a 20 oz pub glass. Even after the first few sips it has a residual pillowy head left on top.

Smell is magnificent. It really has a lot of nose to it and it smells of hops. Mostly pine and a little orange peel down in there.

Taste is really hoppy. The pine hops are right up front but not offensive. I could use a little more malts to balance it for my taste but I still really like it.

Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation to keep it lively.

Overall, a really good pale ale. The piney hops were right on target for my taste. I could use a little more malty balance but none the less a good beer.

A: Burnished gold and soapy white head.

S: Nice bready malt and earthy. Sweet lemon-lime citrus, tangerine. Light but abundance of tropical fruit; papaya and mango. Lots of aroma for such a light beer. Kudos.

M: Smooth and almost creamlike. Mod-high carb amount.

T: Light caramel and sweet bread. Lime peel, papaya, cling peaches; roselle and persimmon.

Poured into a tulip from a can

A. Pours golden and hazy with a foamy 2 finger head.

S. Predominantly tropical fruity smell.

T. Has some citrusy notes as well as a little pine with a grassy aftertaste. Slight malt character.

M. Light with some nice carbonation the smacks the tongue street the swallow. Clean finish.

O. Very nice beer. Definitely 1 dimensional but what it does it does very well.
