Appearance is kind of murky rust yellow, not very enticing to be honest.

Immediate grapefruit, orange, and tropical fruit explosion, smell is delicious, appearance definitely hid the beauty of this brew.

Very citrusy, grapefruit and slight pineapple notes dominate overall palate and finishes with a nice citra hop bitterness, marvelous!

Mouthfeel lacks carbonation, a bit flat for my taste.

Overall a great pale and one of my OddSide favorites.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Served from a 12oz bottle into an Alchemist Wili Becher glass. No date.

Appearance- Slightly hazy amber with quick half-finger white head that left nice lacing.

Smell- Definantly grapefruit with reasonably strong bready malts up front. Some banana, pineaple, and peach notes as well.

Taste- Light orange and tangerine up front, fades into that bready malt, and finishes with a nice piney bitterness. Thats about it.

Mouthfeel- Great medium body with medium carb. Lighter and refreshing. Very easy to drink.

Overall- Not a pale that truly stands out, but still a nice refreshing, easy to drink beer with solid hop notes.

This ale pours a crystal clear copper color with a light white head that leaves a nice film and lacing. The aroma is very dank. Hoppy citrus and tropical fruit notes abound. The mouthfeel is very smooth and light, quite easily drinkable. The flavor follows the nose with lots of tangerine, pineapple, pine, and grapefruit notes. The malt is minimal but just enough to make this enjoyable. This is a good beer. It seems closer to an ipa than an apa. Great after work refresher.
