12 oz can, hotel water glass

A – Deep gold with some orange hues. Mild white head, shows up strong and then gone quickly.

S – Oranges, grapefruit, perhaps some mango or other tropical fruit. Bitter hop aroma with some malt sweetness in the background.

T – Similar tropical notes to the aroma, mangos, guava, light citrus. The grapefruit character is present but somewhat hidden, and there is a mild bitter bite.

M – Moderate carbonation, enough to helps scrub the palate, but allowing the bitterness to linger. Very light body considering the complexity of aromas and flavors.

O – A very good session beer. I’d lean it more towards an IPA considering the high hop bitterness, but the moderate alcohol level helps it fit in the pale ale category.
