A: Amber/copper color, with a creamy white head.

S: Nose is loaded with citrus, as well as some grassy notes, and pineapple.

T: Sweet orange, pineapple, citrus peel and malt are well balanced by a dry hoppy bitterness.

M: Body is on the light side of medium, extremely refreshing, I could literally drink this all day.

O: This is delicious. One of my favorite pale ales.

32oz growler from the Bowery Whole Foods. Pours a clear light orange color with a 1/2 inch of head. Minimal lacing. The aroma is sweet orange with some malts and hints of tropical fruits. The taste is some bitter orange peel, floral hops and malts. Slightly bready. A tad watery. Malt finish with more floral notes as well as some orange peel. Light mouthfeel, but it's expected considering the low ABV. This is a highly drinkable Pale Ale that would be great for summer. Hoping this gets canned one day. Overall, one of the more flavorful, lower ABV Pales I have had in awhile. I'd buy it again.
