look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Beige head with some lace. Color is a clear orange hued gold.

Flavor profile: a lot of tropical flavors. Grapefruit and mangos with some muskmelon. Bready malts with some earthy hops.

Mouthfeel: mild bitterness. Ends with a slight hop resin aftertaste.

Overall, solid pale ale. Definitely could be an ipa.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours light amber in color with a big fluffy finger and a half head that retains nicely.

Smell has some great crisp hop aromas of ripe mango, juicy citrus, some dank note and some pine.

Taste follows the nose with crisp juicy hop flavors if mango and citrus along with a bigger presence of some dank hops. Very mild bitterness.

Light crisp drinkable with lots of hoppy oils and resin to help balance it out

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the 2014 Firestone Walker Invitational Beer Fest held at the Paso Robles Event Center in Paso Robles, CA.

Pours a hazy orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Foamy swaths of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, citrus zest, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus zest and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with nice citrus forward hop qualities all around.

Serving type: on-tap
