Beer pours a golden yellow color with a slight amount of haze. The head is very impressive and clings tightly to the glass leaving a wonderful lace.

The aroma is dominated by hops. Citrus and grapefruit really shine through. A wonderful nose.

The tastes is sweet to start with a dry and hoppy finish. Clean esters with no off flavors. A rather simple taste but refreshing.

The mouthfeel is medium and fits well with the beer.

Overall a very nice pale ale. It is a little high on the hop scale for the style maybe but it is very enjoyable.

A thick, chunky white head rests atop a golden, crystal clear body; sticky lacing on the glass. Nice, hoppy aroma; pine and melon. Bright, crisp feel with a subtle malt backbone and a bold hop bitterness rounding things out. Clean, dry finish.

A refreshing beer with good balance and taste all-around. Nothing earth-shattering or innovative per se; just a darn fine beer....
