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.

This is a very easy drinking pale ale...not real assertive but it has some redeeming qualities.
There is a light citrus flavor of overripe oranges....the same impression is evident on the aroma.
Body is light side of medium..
Slightly hazy look but drinks pretty clean...
This would be a nice beer for a BBQ...just enough flavor to keep it interesting but nothing overwhelming. Certainly as far as APA's go this is nothing special but it has its place.

Pours a semi-cloudy golden, with nice white head. Lace is loopy and attractive.
Nose is floral and citrus hoppy, with a touch of sweet malts. Pleasant.
Taste is nice hoppy grapefruit and plenty of citrus with a dry bitterness at the finish. A solid, hopped-up wheat beer that's a pleasure to drink. Would easily enjoy more of these.
