phenomenal pale ale, maybe my favorite thus far, although they have all been good in this series, and i love the project. they have all been real different not only from each other, but from other pales on the market. this one has a real east coast vibe, delicate and expressive hop character, might as well have been brewed in vermont! some yeast chunks in the orangey brew, rather clear compared to the others, save the sediment. frothing white head is several inches tall with a relaxed pour, and lots of lacing. the nose is the best feature of this one, so much citrus, candied orange, dried meyer lemon, and then a slight like creamsicle sweetness and richness. malt is golden promise type, honey malt, and its just big enough for the hops without weighing down the beer, it stays super light, only partially due to its amazing carbonation. the hops carry almost no bitterness, but the orange rind character never really relaxes, and that sort of ends up being the dominant flavor of the beer, although one could easily detect traces of other fruits, even apples or pears in this, its not sweet though, which is what makes it for me. one of the better american pales I've encountered in some time, and one i would like to see commercially available before long. it would be a staple in my fridge.
