A- Pale Copper to a light amber hue 10-15 srm (standard reference method). with a light touch of tan on the head and great lacing would recommend serving in a pint glass.

S- Im lovin the tropical bouquet. Citrus and tropical aromas(grapefruit). aromas of fresh cut pine and a hint of herbal spices. The tropical citrus, grapefruit, piney, earthy,floral and spicey characters come from the 3 low to high alpha acid hops.(centennial, cascade and simcoe) :)

T- as for hop bitterness this ale drinks like a pale ale but under the category of a fresh hopped ipa (roughly around 50-55 ibu) ibu=international bittering units. Favorite thing about this ale is the soothing notes of caramel malt and toasted malt characters, almost like eating the pie crust from grandmas ancient old most loved peacan pie lol. sorry I had too.

M- Great head retention that seldom persist. Low carbonation but about 1 finger of head that laces very well on the side of the glass. Great first impression of spicey and zesty hop bitterness that only lingers for a few seconds unlike your everyday ipa. With a great finish of mellow sweet matiness that makes this beer a greatly balanced palate quencher.

PWW- because of its lack of bitterness on the palate I would recommend going with a mildly spicy food or a mild bodied plate like a smoked pulled pork nothing too over the top on spices like curry. Maybe a zesty chicken sandwich. Great with any burger honestly or English cheese like cheddar cheese or my absolute favorite...BANNANA BREAD PUDDING!!!

Bottle from scotchzi at Proof. Pours an amber/caramel color with almost no head and very thin collar. Aroma is mostly medium malt sweetness. Taste has some slight tropical hop notes; otherwise, just the medium maltiness. Medium body and light carbonation.
