From a growler I had filled a few hours ago at Peg's Cantina.
A very pale straw in color with a nice super-white head.
Fantastic hop aroma of tropical fruit with a hint of herbs and grass.
The tropical aromas carry over to the taste, which is big on flavors of pineapple, guava and more. Being under 5 percent alcohol, the malt flavors are muted, but far from invisible. I imagine the hop aromas and flavors would fade very quickly; fortunately, drinking beer from the source eliminates the danger of stale brew.
Body isn't watery.
Cycle Brewing's description is accurate: This is a session pale ale that's also a hop bomb. A nice diversion from beers with 7+ percent alcohol.

On tap at Peg’s brewpub. Cycle brewing series. Bitter, big IBU taste, from big citra? But always hard to tell the hops. Grapefruit, lemon, a little astringent. Cloudy grapefruit colour. Hoppy aroma.Very decent pale, outside of the acid. Sutably carbonated.

First had: on tap at Peg's, Gulfport, FL
Extremely tasty pale ale here, verging on IPA territory, and reminiscent of the fresh hoppy goodness you'd expect from Hill Farmstead. Pale banana yellow liquid, cloudy, loaded with floaties, with a nice white head that receded to a thick ringlet and left lots of lacing on the glass. Burst of fresh hops in the nose, lemon zest and fresh-cut grass. Taste was similarly crisp and hoppy, lemon, grass, with a biscuity pale malt base that took a back seat, but was still present, blending with the hops mid- to end-palate to create a somewhat floral effect. Crisp, medium body, refreshing and full of flavor. Very nice overall.
