Hazy light amber brew with a fingernail of off white head. Completely impenetrable to light. Brussels lacing. Aroma of piney hops is pretty faint. I get a moderate piney hop and light biscuity malt backbone. The mouth is moderately carbonated and dry.

A new brewery, got to try their Pale Ale on tap at the new Flying Saucer in St. Louis

Pours hazy orange with a short, white head. The aroma has some mild hop bitterness, along with a touch of caramel malt. The flavor is a nice blend of toasted, bready malt and then some classic pale ale hoppiness, grapefruit and pine. Slightly oily, resin finish. Medium body, smooth, very easy to drink. Nice sessionable pale, not overly hoppy.
Wish I knew the story behind the name...

Poured from the bottle a bright, yet hazy orange color with one finger of creamy off-white head. Small amount of lacing behind.

Aroma of orange zest, grapefruit and tropical fruit together with a light maltiness.

Orange, grapefruit and tropical fruits up front followed by equal amounts of sweet bready malts. Finished with a fairly bitter bite.

Medium bodied and a bit dry with a lighter carbonation.

An enjoyable Pale Ale from 2nd Shift. Not great, but very solid.

Pours a cloudy, orange color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Slight retention and slight lacing. Smells of citrus hops, hint of pine, sweet malt, and alcohol. Fits the style a American Pale Ale. Mouth feel is smooth and clean, with an average carbonation level. There is a strong bitterness. Tastes of hops, hint of grass, sweet malt, alcohol, and slight pine. Overall, unusually cold for a cask sampling, but tasty and simple.

A - Pours a hazy orange with a two finger eggshell head. Lacing looks pretty good as well.

S - Orange rind, grapefruit and tropical fruit sweetness with light malts to back it up. Not in your face or an over-abundance of aromas here.

T - More of a sweeter tropical fruit profile up front along with bready malts to back it up and ends in a lightly bitter finish.

M - Medium bodied and medium carbonation that has a semi-dry finish.

O - I'd buy this as a go-to beer if I could get it locally. Thirst quenching and refreshing to drink.

A - Poured a clear, copper color with a one-finger, off-white head of foam. It left thin rings of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled citrusy and sweet with a nice carmel nose.

T - It tasted or orange and tropical fruits. Good sweet caramel backbone with a touch of bitterness for balance.

M - It was crisp, sharp and smooth. A medium bodied ale with a dry, clean finish.

O - This is an interesting beer. Crazy name, too.
