Pour is like all their hop growlers, hazed pale yellow and a tight white head. Nose is quite strong, soft citrus notes up front turning into an earthy and very herbal tea with notes of grassy hops. Taste is more earthy up front, herbal tea notes and hints of grass. Finish is citrus with a touch of mango and moderate bitterness. Light body, well carbonated, and semi dry. Very soft feel, very nicely done.

Serving type: growler

look: 4.75 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 750 mL growler into a stemmed glass. This was filled 3 days ago at the brewery.

Appearance: Pours a hazy light apricot color. Very light color for a pale ale. Light/pale gold. Leaves a finger of white, fluffy head that fades to a layer atop the beer.

Smell: Tangerine, lemon rinds, nice citrusy hops, floral scents, a hint of resin.

Taste: Nice citrus hops, earthy tones, a bit of lemon zest, grapefruit: very smooth taste. The simcoe hops really shine in this one.

Mouth-feel: Well carbonated with a light to medium, creamy body. The finish is remarkably smooth. Very crisp and refreshing.

Overall: This is a very crisp, tasty, refreshing pale ale. Very well crafted and delicious. So very easy drinking.

Serving type: growler
