beautiful look. beautiful color. brilliant yellow with a thickening core in the middle of the tulip glass. tight white foam sits on top.
smell is kind of grassy, but not like a saison. floral, hoppy. citric. dry.
taste is dry, hoppy. bitterness at the end. nice balance. hint of the grapefruit.
well put together, easily enjoyable, semi-sessionable. thirst quenching on a warm afternoon and the dryness of it reminds me a bit of a pils. most everything they do is above average, it seems.

Served in a Dogfish Head shaped pint glass.

I almost thought this beer was calling me a palooka... Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunrise brass topped by a finger of lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises mild grapefruit zest, light grass, and firm biscuit. The taste brings in more of the same, the balance favoring the hops slightly, but not enough to drown out the biscuit. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a somewhat dry finish. Overall, a solid, if undistinguished, pale ale, something I could easily see drinking many times in the future.

A: Golden with almost no carbonation, thin white foam, slight cloudiness.

S: Piney, heated hops, west coast hops, slight sweet caramel malts.

T: Hoppy, piney heated hops in west coast style, sweet fruity notes, fruity pebbles, light caramel maltiness.

M: Medium light body, low foamy carbonation. Smooth and well balanced.

O: This was an amazing pale ale that surpassed my expectations. Almost approaching an American IPA in style. Really flavourful and delicious.
