A hazy, dark amber beer with a cream-colored head. Head retention is wonderful and a nice lacing is left behind.
Aromas are a very pleasant blanket of pine and citrus hops, with some bready malt undertones.
Sharp hop bitterness in the taste, but it's not overdone. The citrus and pine are the highlights as was in the nose. All-around a great tasting pale ale that could also be called an IPA.
Mouthfeel has a body I'd call medium. The finish is pretty dry and also hoppy, but has enough malt presence to keep the bitterness from being overbearing.
Overall a fine product that be suitable by itself or paired with a meal. Call me impressed!
Thanks go to Treyliff for the beer!

Pours a golden orange body with one finger head and some lace and has not only a citric hop aroma but there are some tropical fruit or sweet malts in there as well giving off both a hoppy and slightly sweet aroma. Grainy and dry are my first impressions, a cracker like dryness, with a thin to medium body. Then I get a pleasant walloping of citrusy, oily hops that have both a slight bitterness and something akin to tropical fruits (not grapefruit). Good balance, not too much going on, but the hops are there, the dryness is there and a little sweetness make this a good beer to have.
