APPEARANCE: Pours a golden yellow, with a decent head that clings to the glass.

AROMA: Fruity, full of pleasant citrus notes. Grapefruit and orange are what stuck out the most. They are accompanied by a finishing note of malt.

TASTE: The sweet fruity notes are the first to come out, fresh orange jumps out immediately. This is followed by a very subtle symphony of hops that adds a delightful amount of bitterness without being too overwhelming for a pale ale.

MOUTH FEEL: Light body and Medium carbonation. A bit of a tingle but nothing unexpected. Drinks incredibly easy.

OVERALL: Another wonderful beer from a wonderful Micro Brewery. Invasion has quickly become one of my favorite Pale Ale's.

12oz can poured into a nonic pint glass.

A- Pale golden and very light orange colors, fluffy 2f pure white head. Heavy film and some patches of lacing remain. some bubbles are visible through the light haze.

S- A pleasant blend of citrus (name 'em, they're in there; grapefruit, lime, orange, lemon) and light malts. Add a touch of easy sweetness for nice mix of aromas.

T- Florida citrus and light pale malts. Very tasty. Not sweet, not too bitter. The hops are flavorful.

M- Very smooth and drinkable. Some hop snap, not bitter. A bit of malt body yet not sweet. Some tingle from the carbonation.

O- It hit the spot as a drinkable, flavorful APA at 5.00 abv.
