A - Pours a nice amber with a thin white head. Good amount of lacing.

S - Lots of citrus - orange, pineapple, and mango. Some malty sweetness is also present.

T - This is nice. Lots of citrus in the front followed by sweet malts and a nice bitter hops. Extremely well balanced.

M - Medium bodied with medium/high carbonation. Very smooth and easy drinking.

O - One of the best pale ale's I've ever had. Very well balanced and highly recommended.
