12 oz. bottle, with bottled on date December 05, 2013 printed on the label. Thanks to the local Binny's for selling me old beer. Acquired as part of a mixed six pack. Bottle lists a 5.60% abv.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - It pours a cloudy lemon orange colored body, with one finger of frothy off-white head. Some good sheaths of lacing slowly cascading down the glass. Appears adequately carbonated, with some strong bubbles streaming topside. Lots of very fine sedimentation in the glass. Looks pretty nice for what it is. 4

S - The aroma is fairly light, but pleasant - lots of bready honeyed malts, some herbal / grass / pine, lemongrass, light citrus. Smells pretty good for the style, also. 3.5

T - Taste follows the nose - crisp, bready malt, honey, lemongrass, lemon / orange / pine. The dry-hopping is definitely apparent, and the hops are still pretty fresh / herbal / grassy and dominant to the malt bill. 3.5

M - The feel is crisp, and clean, with a bit of pine resin / sweet malts lingering on the finish. Very nicely done. 4

Overall, a nice pale ale that has held up well. It's been a while since I had something new from Redhook also, and this one was a pleasant surprise. Recommended if it is available to you.

3.84/5  rDev +7.6%

A - Pours crystal clear, light amber in color with a frothy with head that clings to the glass.

S - Earthy hops, dirty citrus, kind of has a dish rag aroma. As it warms a generic hop pellet aroma comes through.

T - Bright citrus hops, oranges and slightly toasted caramel, some pine comes through mid palate, the malt is very delicate and adds a nice backdrop for the citrus/pine hops, notions of honey sweetness come to mind. Finishes with a citrus crisp, dry and clean with a hint of tannins left on the palate.

M - Medium body, perfect carbonation, crisp and dry feel.

This is my favorite Redhook beer so far. Very crisp and clean with a good amount of bright hops.

Appearance: Pale cloudy gold with an excellent head, good lacing, and plenty of carbonation.

Smell: Floral and citrus hops, caramel.

Taste: Floral and citrus hops, caramel, wheat, and grass.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. Entirely drinkable, and much better than I expected from Red Hook. More flavor and more hops than they usually stick into their beers.
