Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

Crazy Mountain is the place to be; Mountain Livin' is the life for me. Anyway, this stuff pours a clear sunset amber topped by a finger of glowing off-white foam. The nose comprises lightly-sweet caramel, celery, light leek, mild grass, and a hint of flowers. The taste holds notes of grass, the rindiest part of the grapefruit rind, celery, light tomato, and a hint of orange peel for the sake of it. The vegetal nature and strength of the bitterness don't do anyone any favors. The body is a light medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a dry finish. Overall, I can't say this stuff is anywhere near my favorite pale ale, mostly due to the overly vegetable-medley tack the hops decided to take.

12oz can

A) Pours with a finger thick head, slowly settles leaving a sticky lacing along the side of the glass. Slightly hazy bronze colored body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Citrus aroma. Slightly piney.
T) Hop bite is overbearing for a pale ale. The subtle malt helps to bring some semblance of balance. Piney.
M) Fizzy. Medium body on the lighter side. Chalky finish.
O) An OK pale ale.
