4.06/5  rDev -0.7%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: burnt orange body with a one finger bone white head that leaves some nice sticky lacing. Make sure to get that little bit of sediment off the bottom of the bottle.

Aroma: pink grapefruit big time with a touch of fruit in the back

Flavors: nice citrus flavors up front, grapefruit, lemon rind; under the citrus I am picking up pear, apple and a little pineapple swirling around, a touch of pine and white grapefruit on the finish along with a touch of pineapple, the pineapple note is very settle.

Mouthfeel: mild-moderate carbonation, somewhat oily from the hops, medium to medium-full body, sweet-bitter pink grapefruit like feel on the front and mid with a touch of white grapefruit like bitterness on the finish and aftertaste along with a little pine like note – this makes for a dry finish.

To the Point: a tasty whatever you want to call it - pale ale or IPA. If some IPAs are too strong for you but, you like citrus, maybe this pale ale would do the trick. Come to think of it this could be a good introductory ale before trying a full bodied IPA.
