Hazy golden yellow. One finger fizzy head. Melts to a quarter inch.
Citrusy hop aroma. Lightly malty.
Smooth citrus hop flavor. Appropriate bitterness for American pale ale. Malt backbone gives adequate support for style.
Medium bodied, nice mouthfeel. I like the carbonation level.
Overall, this is basically a (good) standard American Pale ale. I'm not sure why New Belgium chose this style as their Autumn seasonal, but it's good. Just more of a spring or summer thing for me.
