Glass - Pint

A - Pretty clear pale gold color with a 2-finger head, slightly dense looking, and the retention is pretty good. Moderate Co2 can be seen, leaves a very nice lacing as well.

S - Very citrusy & inviting, it's got big grapefruit and orange fruits, along with a nice floral quality. I get an underlying malt sweetness, some toast, a touch of biscuit but soft. God the aroma is so inviting!

T - It's got wonderful grapefruit & orange fruit burst upfront, floral with a nice soft zip of rind as you begin to swallow the beer. It finishes with very little malt character, soft toast & cracker perhaps with subtle but balancing bitterness. Fresh grapefruit is dominant.

M - Soft to moderately carbonated, very smooth, medium bodied. Perfect!

D - God I don't think Ive had a better Pale Ale since I first tried Sierra Nevada Pale Ale! I loved everything about this beer, especially it's fresh, floral aroma, and it's fresh grapefruit flavor. I could quaff a sixer or more, I'll definitely buy this beer again, recommended. Cheers!
