A: Pours a clear copper color with orange hues. There is a half inch of head. A lot of sticky lacing is left on the edge of the glass and top of the beer. There is a lot of carbonation that can be seen rising to the top of the beer.
S: Strong grapefruit and floral hop aromas. There is a nice caramel malt backbone
T: Grapefruit and citrus hop flavors balanced nicely with caramel malt backbone
M: Medium bodied beer with good carbonation
overall, this is a very nice brew.
Serving type: on-tap

"1362 B2 1240" ink-jetted on the bottom of the bottle, if it's a Julian date, the bottle is over a year old. Purchased at Casanovas.
Very dark reddish orange color, it looks brown in indirect light. Sticky lace that coats the glass in sheets, fairly good surface coverage. Average clarity with some rising carb trails visible.
Smells like bready malt, a little floral note from the hops, herbal Cascade, vague citrus.
Flavors follow suit, malt dominated with some citrusy notes buried deep, apparently grapefruit zest according to the label. Slight lingering bitterness and toasty malt flavors, vague fruity yeast esters. Overall this isn't a groundbreaking pale ale by any means but it's fairly drinkable. Would try a fresher sample to re-evaluate sometime.

Crosscut pours a deep golden color with a very small head. Their are a few weak floral aromas, but hints of lime and citrus. The taste just has a few floral notes come through, but a nice strong lime and grapefruit flavor. I really enjoyed the unique flavors. Overall a very nice pale ale, not a hop bomb, but the lime and grapefruit makes it very enjoyable.
