Pours a cloudy bright orange color with a finger and a half of a white head that dissipates to a nice thick lacing. Nice carbonation coming off the glass. How a pale ale should look. Smells of tons of floral notes, some resinous, dank qualities, grapefruit, a soapy quality to it, some juicy fruits like pineapple. Do get some bread and grain as well from the malt. Taste starts with some resinous, yet juicy qualities from the hops such as grapefruit, just tons of floral, almost a perfume-like flavor. Then the middle brings some balance with wheat notes, grain, and carmel. Get some qualities here that may suggest some to say it is "watered down," but I disagree. The finish is more of the prominent floral qualities of the hops, as well as some pine, grass, pineapple, grapefruit, carmel. Crisp, light body with a creamy and thin mouthfeel. This is not on the Alpha King or Zombiedust level for apa’s, but it is definitely a quality, hoppy pale ale that I would gladly have anytime I can get my hands on some.

A: Beautiful golden color and a massive three finger white head that dissipates nicely to leave a nice foamy cap.

I've had this beer quite a few times now. I brought it home in a growler to share with my family and thought I'd write a review because I'm so excited. I usually get this in the 4 pack pints.

A – Poured from a growler into a regular, straight sided pint glass. Pours with a two finger head that is georgeous – really fluffy and slightly uneven on the top, very light in color. The head is picture perfect. The beer has a brownish golden hue to it and does not have a large amount of carbonation. Head fades at a medium pace and is already lacing beautifully. As I drink, lacing is really good.

S – I always really enjoy the smell of this beer. It has a really clear and crisp pronunciation of the hop and floral notes. Deeper into the smell you do get good sense of grapefruit.

T – Slightly disappointed to be honest. Not quite as bold and pronounced as either my nose or memory would lead me to believe. Big on the hops and grapefruit, small on the floral notes. There's a big hop presence right after the main body as it goes into the finish. The finish is the strongest aspect. The body leaves you yearning for a bit more crunch to it.

M – My first impression when I took a sip was, man this is kinda flat. Despite that, it is still fairly refreshing and quite satisfying.

O – The smell and appearance were much better than the overall taste of the beer. The finish was much better than the body of the beer. This is really the only time I've ever had it where I wasn't satisfied with the carbonation – I imagine its the growler. I still love this beer, and its really a go to beer in terms of overall satisfaction.

16oz can into tulip.

A - Deep gold with a large fluffy white head.

S - Fresh, juicy grapefruit hops. Grassy with pine resin and floral hops. Slight hint of caramel.

T - A blast of citrus and pungent piney hops. A mild earthy hop bitterness builds up but is balanced by sweet caramel malt. Finishes with light citrus and bready malt that tends to linger.

M - Smooth and crisp with a light-medium body. Dry finish, good carbonation.

O - This is a phenomenal pale ale. Dangerously drinkable. Huge hop flavor, nice balance.
