Our first run at an American Pale Ale. Flavors and aromas of zesty citrus, passionfruit, and pine present themselves throughout. A very subtle malt sweetness for balance, but this is intended to finish dry.

Appearance - Great head, excellent lacing. Nice, bubbly and bright white! Golden orange and very active in the glass. Very enticing.

Smell - Very oily on the noise. Lots and lots of lupulin in the aroma, which one would imagine, this is best to be drank young, similar to beers like Pliny the Elder. Pineapple, mango, coriander, pine, honey, apricots/ peaches, flowers, plants, mandarin oranges. So much going on here.

Taste - Quality pils malts, wheat, with beautifully bittering. Quite hoppy. Simcoe shines through and is absolutely glorious. Notes of honey, grass, barnyard funk, lemon, marigolds, elderberry, pineapple, green apple, mango, white bread, hay, and grapefruit.

Mouthfeel - Excellent carbonation. Zippy and crisp. Very clean finish!

Overall - Very impressive Pale Ale. Has many shared characteristics to beers like the Chainbreaker, but arguably, better. This is one of the best Pale Ales I've had in a long time. Tassstyyyyyeeehh!

Pours a pale golden color with a white head. The aroma is herbal, grassy, piney and a bit dank. The taste is earthy, dirty, hoppy, and pretty delicious. A nice slightly toasty malt character adds a nice depth of vague sweetness. Dusty yeast and dry and smooth. Very nice.

16.9oz bottle split between a few little plastic cups. Mine's pink. I didn't write down any dates from the bottle.

Pours mostly clear, small head, lots of carbonation. Smell is tropical fruity, juicy. Flowery. Light and bright. Pretty awesome for a pale ale.

Taste is very nice pale ale -- solid malt bill with a little hay and some really nice bright fruit and flower highlights.

Mouthfeel is medium, slightly chewy. Overall, this is a great pale ale.
