look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

White to slightly off white head of considerable size pretty much just sits above a clear golden-copper colored beer.

Nice hops aroma of light pine accented with some citrus aspects.

Pine from the hops seems to be the most prevalent thing in the taste of this slightly bitter pale ale.

There is a dryness to the slightly piney hops aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.

A well done pale ale with a nice amount of piney hops coming through but not to the point of being overbearing or overwhelming. I recommend giving this one a try.

Poured a wonderful clear amber body with a one finger fluffy white head that slowly receded to a thick cap of white foam leaving abundant lacing down the glass. A very nice looking pale ale. Scents of pine resin, grapefruit peel, an undertone of tropical fruit and orange flesh and bready malt. Overall impression of aroma is of a bright, clean, hoppy pale ale. Very nice. Flavor begins with medium-low bitterness, with notes of pine resin, orange zest, tropical fruit, grapefruit peel and pith and a balancing pale malt sweetness in the background. This moves into a middle with medium bitterness with notes of grapefruit peel, pine resin and a bit of balancing malt. Finish is medium-dry with notes of pine resin, grapefruit peel and a bit of grainy malt. Aftertaste is pine resin, grapefruit peel and grainy malt. Overall impression of flavor is of a nicely bitter, hop-forward pale ale that is crisp and assertive, with a wonderful combination of different flavors. Mouthfeel is medium-light bodied with medium-light carbonation and a somewhat creamy feel. Overall impression of mouthfeel is of a smooth session ale. Overall this is an excellent pale ale. It is hop-forward, flavorful, balanced and smooth with a wonderful aroma. One of the better pale ales out of Arizona.

Pours a beautiful orange amber with a slight haze and a stream of bubbles rushing up the center to meat a creamy head of off white foam that lasts and leaves rings of lace. Gorgeous! Nose is sweet lemon peel with a bit of tart grapefruit. A touch of sweetness form malt and some hefty pine. A bit of spice tickles the nose and then as the beer warms it develops a sweeter fruit scent that is lightly tropical. taste is crisp dry and piney. The fruits are juicy and a bit sweet. The malt is a dry cracker and the pine is healthy and green. The mouthfeel is soft and creamy. The finish leaves some of that pine resin on the tongue and the back of the throat while the malt sweetness comes to you one last time. The fruits did fizzle a bit on the back end but it was still darn good. The pine is a steady constant even in the finish and the hops bitter is outstanding. It's good enough for an IPA but there was enough flavor in this that it fits very well. Leaves you with a bit of tart fanfare and lovely lingering aftertaste.

Thank you Kerry4porters for the chance to try this beer.

Had on tap at the brewery on 7-20-14.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is leaving lacing behind.

Nose has hints of citrus and pine.

Taste is pale malts that are lightly sweet balanced nicely by citrus and pine.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and fairly refreshing.

Overall this is a nice bitter twist on the APA style of beer. Light in alcohol but big on hop bitterness. Definitely try it if you come across it!
