500 ml bottle into pint glass, bottled on 10/22/2013. Pours moderately hazy golden orange color with a nice 2-3 finger dense and rocky off white head with incredible retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts the entire glass. Dense soapy lacing clings around the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of big pineapple, peach, tangerine, grapefruit, orange peel, lemon zest, floral, grass, light honey, light caramel, light pine, and floral earthiness. Fantastic aromas with huge hop complexity and a fair amount of malt balance; and great strength. Taste of big pineapple, tangerine, orange peel, peach, grapefruit, lemon zest, floral, grass, pine, light honey, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Good amount of earthy floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of pineapple, tangerine, grapefruit, peach, orange peel, lemon zest, floral grass, light pine, light honey, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Fantastic complexity and balance of bright juicy hop flavors; with a crisp malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and moderately sticky mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a fantastic pale ale! All around awesome complexity and balance of bright hop and moderate malt flavors; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A highly enjoyable offering.
