Pours a clear light orange/straw with a fluffy white head that lingers.
Smells of light/tropical fruit mixed with dank pine and some barrel/oak character.
Tastes of pine and lighter pitted fruit up front before going into more pine and astringent middle before ended on a floral/soapy/pine ending with slightest hints of oak barrel.
Light body and medium to high carbonation works well enough.
This pale ale really benefits from the barrel characteristics as they make it subtly complex as it warms. Big, interesting hop character, dry, and my current favorite pale ale. Fantastic.
