Some good grassy flavors and light but nothing to great. Poured a hazy light orange with tiny head. Piney hops and simcoe here as well as a citrus smell. Light pale and piney undertones in the back. Medium orange rind bitterness. Medium light body. An alright beer.

Pours a clean orange-ish color with an off white head. In the aroma a mellow citrus hop. In the taste, a dryer citrus hop, but more hops than malt. A small hop bite and a medium bodied mouthfeel, with a dry citrus like hop in the aftertaste. Quite hop heavy for a pale, not complaining, just sayin'...
