I'm going to keep it short and to the point. This brew pours a gorgeous shade of rich golden amber with a think soapy white head. The aroma is citric, tropical stone fruits and deep resinous hops in there. The flavor is as the nose describes, citrus (nice orange peel and Grapefruit) with Tropical Fruits (Pineapple and Passion Fruit) with also a Resinous Hop flavor toward the finish. The malts are present with a cracker-ish sweetness. The brew finishes bitter sweet, clean and resinous. The feel is light carbonation on point.

Overall: This brew is damn enjoyable! This is slightly off balanced with more focus on hop flavors. I'm a fan of that! The malt is there and acts as a nice backbone, yet allowing the hop resins to clearly shine in the brew. Are we sure this is just a Pale Ale? There's nothing negative to say about this beer, except it isn't Distributed in Baltimore! FatHeads, please come to Baltimore! This Brew is Recommended!
