Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Darker amber color than I was expecting and there was a good two fingers of head that stays the whole way down.

Smell of citrus hops is crisp and clean.

Taste is of citrus and hop forward that is pulled back by the malt backbone before it wrecks your palate. The best part about this beer is the slight hint of pine as the beer finishes. A slight bitterness leaves you wanting more. Overall a smooth mouthfeel considering the bold taste.

This is another quality pale ale from FFFs. Lots of flavor, yet enough balance to allow you to drink a few of them!
