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.

Serving type: on-tap

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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

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 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...

Serving type: on-tap
