look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a deep copper, almost amber color. Had about a 1.5 finger head that had nice retention and left a good amount of lacing. Lots of activity visible in this beer.

S - Presents the aroma of citrus hops with hints of pineapple, grapefruit, and apple.

T - A strong taste of citrus fruits with grapefruit leading the way from start to finish.

M - A crisp beer with a clean finish and moderate carbonation; could easily drink several of these in one sitting.

O - One of the better pale ale's I have drank and would gladly drink more of these in the future.

Serving type: on-tap
