Poured from a 12 oz. capped bottle (Bottled On 01/10/12) into a pint glass.
A moderate pour yields a 1- off white head that slowly recedes after a couple minutes to a thin, messy dusting and thing foam ring. The body is a clear orange gold with a decent amount of slow-rising carbonation bubbles. Thin lacing clings to nearly every available surface.
Light and sweet citrus hops aromas bring notes of mandarin oranges and tangerines. A strong caramel malt presence does a great job of balancing the nose.
Like the nose, each sip starts with sweet orange-like citrus flavors. Notes of peaches and tangerines give this Pale Ale a rather unique flavor. Swallowing the beer releases a floral hops flavor that combines well with the citrus flavors. As these fade, a slight grassy bitterness sets in that compliments the rest of the flavors.
The light body is easy-drinking and certainly refreshing. The carbonation is only slightly fizzy, making this beer crisp and easy-swallowed.
