An aggressive pour produces rich hazy amber with one finger head. The nose is full of bright citrus hops and a malty sweetness. The flavor is beautiful! Rich bready malt with tons of grapefruit and orange peel! The body is rich and there's just enough carbonation.

I'm not sure how this is classified as just a pale ale, but I'm really impressed with this beer. And at over 6% I'm sure I could get in trouble with a few of these. The citrus is bright and fresh and the malt is quite tasty.
