12oz bottle

A- Poured into a pint glass. Pours a pale golden yellow/orange color with an off-white head.

S- The aroma is very nice, more IPA status than pale ale. A lot of fresh citrusy hops make up the aroma.

T- The taste like the aroma is fantastic. There is some malt up front but the highlight is without question the fresh, bitter and flavorful hops. Delicious!

M- The mouthfeel is between light and medium bodied with a good amount of carbonation.

O- Overall, this is one of my favorite pale ales out there. Highly recommended!

Poured into a pilsner-style glass.

Deep tangerine with just a bit of haze. One finger of creamy white foam like egg white whipped into stiff peaks, slowly descends, leaving random, soapy spots of lace.

Nice nose. Grass, orange peel, a little pine, caramel, biscuits, maybe some juniper.

Almost a gin-like flavor and bite. Grassy, earthy. Tangerine pith, smooth biscuits, a little sugar. Great balance.

High, nearly painful, pinching carbonation. Just a touch of fizz. Clean, snappy finish.

Surprisingly good. Great balance, perfect bitterness. Very good on the patio during an Arizona spring day.

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a tulip glass, unknown bottled date. This pours a slightly hazy light golden color with a decent foamy off white head which leaves a lacing. The smells are of pine hops and caramel. The feel is medium with a mouth coating hop resin. The taste is pretty good, closer to an IPA which I really liked, nice amount of bitterness, good earthy flavor with a nice caramel backbone.
