A- light orange hazy color. White head with good lace. A thin cap keeps up as the glass empties.
S- fresh baked pastry dough, dole canned pineapple, goose bury.
T- starts out with a minerally citrus, a bit of pear, some grapefruit and a round gooseberry, New Zealand Sauvignon blanc. The finish shows some roast character.
M- appropriate pale ale carbonation. Smooth finish.
O- overall, a good pale. Unsure what the hops are but I'd bet it's something from New Zealand.

Appearance - nice full head on top of an opaque orange color. Quite beautiful
Smell - strong citrus up front and lots of hops on the back end. Is this a Pale Ale or IPA?
Taste - This one goes from sweet to bitter and back with a bitter finish. Very bitter finish as well. While good, I am confused between IPA or Pale Ale.
Mouthfeel - while very carbonated with left quite a bitter taste.
Overall - Wish I could get more TG near me. Quite the fan of the brewery and I am glad I got this in a trade.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.
Appearance - Hazy bright orange. Nice white head. Faint wisps on the surface.
Smell - Orange hops, A bit of an herbal character. Light doughy malts and a hint of grain.
Taste - A little less exciting, but still nice. Slightly nondescript orange citrus hops. The herbal notes are lost. Doughy malts make a brief appearance, but the finish is grainier.
Mouthfeel - Light and drinkable. Medium carbonation and low bitterness.
Overall - Well made pale ale. Better made than most, but isn't earth-shattering.

22oz bomber poured into tulip.
A: Pours a very hazy marmalade-orange with large, creamy head.
S: Orange, pineapple, banana, and slight floral.
T: Orange, grapefruit, some floral with mild bitterness. The malt presence doesn't seem as prevalent as in their other pale ales. Finishes rather dry. Definitely improves as it warms, the resinous pine starts coming through much more.
M: Med-light body. Clean and refreshing, but comes off as almost watery.
O: A pleasant drinking pale ale overall, worthy of purchase in my opinion.
