Poured from a bottle into a Triple Digit tulip. The pour is very clear, copper-colored, and has a tight 2 fingers of fine white head. Very good retention and some nice clumpy lacing. The nose has hints of pine, lemon, grapefruit, and Jolly Rancher candies.
Interesting flavor that I wasn't expecting. I expected something along the lines of Alpha King or SNPA, but not this. There's a strong cascade hop kind of flavor in there (I don't like cascade hops). It's bitter and sweet and the two hues create a medicinal character I don't ordinarily find in FFF beers. The beer has a nice firm texture, but the flavors just don't work for me. The hop flavors toe the line between woody and berry flavors with some flowery notes mixed in. It's almost like orange marmalade on a half a grapefruit. It may appeal to some, but somehow you lose me when you combine these flavors.
Overall, not a bad beer, but it doesn't work on my palate. I'm always willing to try new beers from this brewer, but I won't be reaching for this one again.

22 ounce bottle into pint glass, bottled on 6/17/2014. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass, with some light streaming carbonation. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with solid strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Light pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, light toasted bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice balance, robustness, and complexity of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth, crisp, and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with no warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good pale ale. Good complexity and balance of citrus/grassy hops and moderate malt sweetness; with very smooth and crisp to drink. A nicely enjoyable offering.
