New beer to contribute to the Metro Parks system.

Pours out a very nice golden orange with 2 fingers of a fluffy white head.

The aroma is full of pine, grassy hop notes, grapefruit and orange peel. Despite the use of Citra I don't get any of the characteristically tropical fruit notes. A small amount of bready malt is detectable too.

The flavor has a ton of pine right away and that is followed by some bitter grapefruit peel and a nice amount of sweet orange. There is a little bit of bready malt, but not much and this finishes pretty dry and bitter.

The body is light and the mouthfeel is crisp.

This is an extremely refreshing and easy drinking APA, but it tastes more like an IPA with the firm bitterness. A great beer, but I wish the Citra hops would have come through more.

On tap at Bob's Bar in Columbus, OH.

Pours a dark orange/amber color, with a 1.5 inch head, and some good lacing down the glass.

Smells quite hoppy, with some pine needles and sap, some grapefruit.

Lots of orange and mango on the palate, slammed with some intense pine bitterness. Lots of lingering bitterness for a simple pale ale. A little bit of caramel malt flavor is drowned out by nice intense hop flavor.

Medium bodied, very drinkable despite the amount of hops. Crisp and dry mouthfeel.

An excellent beer, and my first from this brewery.

From Notes:
Served on-tap at the brewery on March 26th, 2013

A - Cloudy orange with two fingers of off white head, thick lacing.
S - Grassy, and very earthy hops, rye, pepper, biscuit, smells very spicy.
T - Earthy spicy hop resin, bread malt, light floral notes, kinda bland.
M - Medium feel, typical pale.
O - Really disappointing, not sure why, because I've heard good things about this plenty of times prior. Hopefully my review will change once bottles come out.
